Don’t stay here
This isn’t a hotel. It’s a hostel. It’s noisy and small. Don’t bother staying here. You’d be better to find an air bnb.

The room was clean, but was a bit dated. Bed was comfy, but there was a brick holding the window open for some reason? Bathroom was small but was ok.

A great small place in a convenient location

Location was great being directly across from one of the main train stations but the room was extremely small and had dirty carpet. Breakfast also wasn’t as nice as shown in the pictures

Fair 4,0
Bad smell
Smell was dreadful on arrival. We had to go & buy air fresheners to make it bearable. Bathroom nice but rest of room tatty, hole in ceiling and microwave didn’t work. Good location and breakfast was good.
Russell, gb3 night family trip
Good 6,0
The bed was very comfortable. There is no receptionist, just a key in passcode protected keybox outside the front door - which makes the stay very impersonal.

Good 6,0
Comfortable enough
The room was clean and comfortable enough but there were no staff or hotel representatives and it was incredibly difficult to see the codes to retrieve the keys on arrival

In order to stop you sending me msg’s take note. En-suite extemly small, mattress requires replacing, not enough bedding. You get what you pay for, this room wasn’t worth any more.
Steve, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Very good stay! Value for your money
The house was really cute and kept nice and clean. The bathroom was completely renovated but the room needed to be renovated or at least painted, as we could see leaking from the ceiling and the desk was very rough. But overall we really liked our stay. Located super close from the city center (10 min walk), and in a very calm area of haymarket. The breakfast was fine, but if you're vegan there's not that much choice, but enough to keep you satisfied. Internet access in the room was very very poor. They need to improve that. The lady that took care of the house was really nice, and always ready to help.

Cosy Stay in Haymarket
Nice central location close to transit, but away from the hustle of the old city. My Edinburgh life is good for families and those that enjoy a homely atmosphere.
