Piries is one of Edinburgh's few budget hotels. The hotel offers clean rooms at good value, a short walk from Edinburgh's Haymarket Station. Made up of three Victorian townhouses on a residential street, Piries has a hostel-like feel, but offers the comfort of private rooms with en-suite bathrooms. The hotel is basic, has friendly staff, and all that you need for a comfortable stay. Aside from the rooms in the basement, which were cramped and had little to no natural light, rooms in the hotel seemed spacious and agreeable. Many feature high, ornate ceilings and ample floor space, but all are uniformly decorated in a modest manner. A good choice for families and groups.
