    Friendly staff, uncomplicated check-in, clean rooms. Breakfast should be booked for all days, was misunderstood at reception. The breakfast waiter did it without any problems. Extremely central location. That's as good as it gets.

    No minibar in the room. But there is a 24/7 room service. On the second day there were 2 bottles of water in the room. The room view was only half dreamlike (Observatory Hill). The other half unfortunately took the air conditioning. Well, these things must be placed somewhere.

    Very good hotel, professional friendly staff and absolute top location just a few meters from the Royal Mile. Rooms modern, quiet and extremely clean.

    The only disappointment was the absence of salmon at breakfast. In the land of the Scottish salmon a small oversight. Otherwise the breakfast was rich and tasty.

    There were three of us in the room, but the beds are too narrow for 2 people. And the room is too small for 3 adults.

    Very good

    The hotel has an absolutely good location, directly at the Royal Mile. Rooms clean and beautifully furnished, beds comfortable. We had booked a room for 3 people, but the room was not very big, a simple double room. Breakfast: large selection, good quality.

    Coffee/tea is served very late, you are almost ready to eat.1 hour before checkout time we were asked by room service to leave the room.

    Nice

    Excellent location, easily accessible both by rail and car, very well located for all the major sights. Parking is extra, a bit steep, so we parked in the long stay car park of Waverley Station..Grand old building, opulent entrance.. Staff friendly and our extra request seen to quite quickly. Didn't eat there, so no comments on food. Breakfast way too expensive so family ate out (just across the street) for far less. Comfortable rooms, nice views, good bathroom with plenty of hot water.. Walls a bit thin, could hear my children quite well. Relieved it wasn't an enthusiastic couple... Pool lovely & warm, steam room great, other features weren't tried out.

    The hotel had the feel of having undergone a cost cutting excersise. Reception staff left us waiting for ages while they were having a chat with a minor employee. As we had arrived early, left suitcases in a safe area, but the chap's laksadeisical attitude did not fill us with confidence. Nothing happened though. No clear signeage where the swimming pool was. Pool is in the basement but that's no excuse for being so poorly lit, no chance to read. Decor is a bit unimaginative. Steam room & sauna lovely but minor step down undistingishable.In the rooms, tea making facilities stingy though toiletries nice. Windows hadn't been washed outside for ages, spoiled the view. Tv pixelated all the time. Having said all of that, we had a lovely time, just such a shame that considering the high star rating & cost, the staff & management could have done better.

    The hotel is in a perfect location in Edinburgh. The rest of the reviews are accurate about the noise. Even with a room in the back this hotel is very noisy and should no be considered by light sleepers but the bed is very comfortable. The excellent staff especially the concierge Mike is the best thing about this hotel. He seemed to sincerely try to do everything he could to make my stay pleasant.

    As stated by many, the hotel is in a noisy location.
