Great stay here recently. Such a good vibe from the neighbouring bar too! Friendly staff willing to help! Live music in the reception area which was great! Loved it! Good selection of drinks at reception and comfy beds! Will be back

Really nice quirky hotel, our room was great, was concern about being so close to a pub, but even as a light sleeper I was not disturbed. The shower was amazing! Great location, with it being so close to the royal mile but it says parking, but they have a deal with a secure car park which is a 15 min walk away. Would have been good to know about it before arrival so we could have prebooked in advance.

Holly White

Such a cute, modern, chill hotel. The vibe the second we came in was so nice and welcoming. The staff were very kind and fun. Perfect location literally so close to everything.

Overall I 100% recommend this hotel!!! If you’re visiting for the nightlife then this is the perfect location !!!
LOVED. SLAYED.

Val

We spent two nights, having visited Edinburgh for the Tattoo and the Fringe, and we're very happy with the Stay Central hotel it's in an excellent central position within walking distance of all the events. Above all, our room was very clean and spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable. 
TV is huge! Staff are very pleasant.
This is an excellent value hotel for the money

Lisa

Absolutely amazing hotel, right in the centre of Edinburgh. We had an absolute ball from start to finish. Staff were excellent and always on hand. In the weeks leading up to our arrival, Thomas the Duty Manager, was in contact with us to ensure everything went to plan.Would 100% return again.

Fiona C

Totally exceptional customer service, and friendly staff who went above and beyond expectation repeatedly. Stayed in an XXL room with 3 teenagers. Perfect on every level. Location is also ideal (City Cafe superb as ever). Can’t recommend more highly. Thanks guys!
