Very dated decor, whole place smelt of rancid fat, chipped toilet seats, shower not working, some lights not working. Allowed to leave bags in our rooms before it had been cleaned and noted marks on the unmade beds. Returned later that day, yes beds made but with the same sheets/pillow cases etc. The bedding had NOT been changed for new...

Worst night sleep ever in room 10 woke up shattered. Springs in the mattress sounded like a freight train every time one of us moved. Plaster was hanging down from the damp stained ceiling. The noises from the boiler were continuous from 7.30 am extremely loud and considering we'd had little sleep anyway was not funny. Went down for breakfast...

Hotel Twenty was a great and affordable find that is located in a very convenient location about 15 minute walk from the Edinburgh Waverly bridge/station which is the central area of Edinburgh. The room was spacious and felt very "home-like". The room can house two people comfortably. The bathroom was also very clean and the decor in both rooms made...

Dirty and thread bare carpets throughout. Our room had not been vacumed judging by the state of it. Filthy mouldy bathroom, walls, shower area etc. Bathroom ceiling lights didn't work. Woman...

We were a group of 3 females travelling from Aberdeen to Edinburgh and had booked this hotel back in August for a 1 night stay on 26th November 2016.
