Positive Reviews


Central Location.

Hotel Twenty is located right by the centre of town, making for easy access to the majority of Edinburgh’s sites such as the Edinburgh Castle and Royal Mile and the shopping district.


Cheerful Staff.

Many of the guests said the hotel benefited from having friendly and helpful staff to help them check in and out and to answer any questions they had about the hotel or Edinburgh.


Spacious Rooms.

Often hotel rooms in the United Kingdom’s major cities can be on the cramped side, but many of the guests said they appreciated having lots of space in their rooms to spread out.

Negative Reviews


Sleep Quality.

Many former guests said they did not have a quality sleep at the Hotel Twenty, suggesting the bed was too uncomfortable.


Noisy Night.

Adding to a poor night’s rest for some guests is that a few rooms face the road which created a lot of noise from traffic. If you sleep lightly, ask for a room away from the main road if possible.


Needs a Clean.

Many guests suggested better attention to detail when cleaning was needed, suggesting bathrooms had mould and bedrooms had not been dusted properly. Other guests said they had problems with the shower.
