Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian
4/5122 Reviews

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian

West End Edinburgh|1.25km from city center
Our assessment of our 3 night stay at the Waldorf was mixed. The hotel was very nice and as a Diamond member we were upgraded to a castle view room. The complimentary breakfast was very good and the front desk staff were generally helpful. We did have a problem one night with the light fixture leaking water from the ceiling. This may have been due to a rainstorm one night and staff brought a bucket to catch the leaking water. The biggest problem, however, occurred after checkout. At the time of checkout I was told that the hotel printer wasn’t working so they would email me my receipt. Since all 3 nights were paid for with HH points I asked if there was a zero balance and was told yes. Later that day I received the final bill and was charged over $1,000 on my credit card for all three nights. I immediately called the hotel and was told by in house reservations staff that my reservation had been cancelled when I didn’t show up. I reminded them that we had been staying with them the last 3 nights and had no problem at checkin on the scheduled day. In fact I confirmed our arrival time several hours before checkin. So they didn’t know what the problem was but would talk to the reservations manager when they were free. In the meantime I called the Hilton diamond desk and again was told that someone had cancelled my stay with points and it had been rebooked by someone as a cash stay and they were not sure what the problem was. My points had even been put back onto my account by someone. By now I am a bit irritated. I finally receive a call back from the hotel reservation manager who tells me that the Waldorf had a computer glitch on our arrival date and that all hotel reservations had been cancelled and had to be manually reentered by hotel staff. However, Hilton hotels have no way to make reservations using points so they made them as a cash payment. Thereby the $1,000 bill. Now glitches are bound to occur sometimes. However, all of this angst could have been avoided by telling me at checkin about the problem and I could have immediately rebooked the room using points while standing at the front desk. The hotel did ultimately reverse the charges and apologize. However. this shouldn’t happen at a property like the Waldorf.
InterContinental Hotels - Edinburgh the George, an IHG Hotel
4.2/566 Reviews

InterContinental Hotels - Edinburgh the George, an IHG Hotel

New Town Edinburgh|0.51km from city center
This was our second time at this hotel and we stayed for almost a week. You can't beat the location on George Street, right downtown, close to shops and restaurants. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms and bathrooms are very nice. The king bed had a good mattress and pillows. There is a safe. They seem to have made upgrades since our last pre-covid stay, including air-conditioning in (all?) rooms. As you would expect in a big city, the rooms are quite small and the hotel is not exactly quiet; also depending on where your room faces. We were right by the elevator, which I generally don't like. I wonder if it's because we booked through our credit card and not direct. It seems there is sometimes a ”penalty'. The rooms are supplied daily with water, delicious cookies and snacks. You can make individual cups of drip coffee in a filter, which is much better than instant coffee but not as good as a Nespresso, IMHO. We had breakfast included and the Printing Press is just wonderful, for breakfast, any meal and later evening cocktails and whiskey. The Burr & Co is a coffee shop, also right next door, with tables outside. Love that place. The hotel has great service. We lost a suitcase and got daily support in checking on the status and changing the address on the delivery. There seemed to be a shortage on hair conditioner and we didn't have a sign for do-not-disturb the first day and got woken at 8 AM, but that didn't spoil our enjoyment of the hotel stay. We expect to be back.

Point A Hotel Edinburgh Haymarket
4.3/5126 Reviews

Point A Hotel Edinburgh Haymarket

West End Edinburgh|1.62km from city center
I had chosen this hotel as it was priced somewhat competitively and with its close proximity to the centre, we decided to take a cosy room with a window. Cosy room with a window is an understatement. Thankfully, as expected, we didn't spend too long in the room as we were out exploring what Edinburgh had to offer but the room was super cramped and made for an uncomfortable stay. The bed is pushed against the wall with a window. You cannot open said window if you're using the bed as it comes out onto one half of the bed. Me and my partner found the mattress to be rather uncomfortable, I had a particular gripe with the pillows as even with two, my head sunk to the mattress and provided zero support. 3 pretty poor night's sleeps, was very much looking forward to getting into my own! There is nowhere else to sit in the room other than the bed. There is no tea or coffee facilities. You can put luggage under the bed however there is nowhere to store the contents, so you're constantly in and out of your bags which take up valuable room space anyway. If you weren't close to your partner, you really will be after staying here. The bathroom is nice, shower is really good however any bathroom habits is echoed into the living area with very little privacy, it got funny by the 2nd day and we just embraced it. We driven to Edinburgh so we parked our car about 15 mins away from the hotel, no problem, £30 for 3 days. The hotel is about a 15-20min casual walk to the main attractions which wasn't totally ideal but not a problem really, I just know we could have got closer for cheaper. We didn't try breakfast so can't pass judgement on that as there were plenty of cafes on the lead up to the centre and the centre itself. The hotel itself is really well decorated and modern. I had zero complaints regarding the cleanliness, it was really good! Staff were super attentive and helpful too, we asked for two extra pillows and were provided there and then, no issues. Check in/check out was really quick and straight forward. Wouldn't return due to uncomfortable bed, super cramped room and poor value for money. Still had a great time in Edinburgh though!
Novotel Edinburgh Park
4.5/551 Reviews

Novotel Edinburgh Park

Edinburgh Airport Area Edinburgh|8.2km from city center
After staying in a number of hotels in Edinburgh, Novotel Edinburgh Park is definitely of highest quality in this price range. The location is perfect if you are working outside of the city but want to still experience the city centre at night. Edinburgh Park train station and tram stop are very close to the hotel with frequent services to neighbouring towns and Waverley station (city centre). The train is quickest to Waverley at only 9 mins and costs as little as £2.70 at super off peak times for a return ticket. The hotel rooms are spacious and clean. There are hundreds of channels on the 55” TVs. The beds are comfy and there is a temperature regulator fan (not air conditioning). The bathrooms are clean and well furnished. Executive rooms get some more toiletries than standard rooms. Some rooms have baths and some have stand-in showers. (Maybe you can note your preference when booking) Breakfast is definitely worth paying for. There’s a huge selection of food options, something for everyone. Hot food and continental style breakfast is offered and is a buffet style. The restaurant is large but can be very busy in the evenings. Car parking is offered at a member rate (Accor ALL account holders) of £6 per day. I would rate the hotel very highly, after staying here a number of times over the past few months and with more bookings in the not so distant future. I look forward to returning!

Princes Street Suites

Princes Street Edinburgh|0.3km from Calton Hill
Underwhelming reception in the bar. Pleasant staff. Not quite what we expected for the price. Location is a short walk from the train station and near Calton Hill. Not hard to get anywhere with basic fitness. The room size was huge. With plenty of nice living space. Good size kitchen, limited basic cooking pans etc. no can opener. No coffee machine. Stove, microwave oven and dishwasher all functional and clean. Bathrooms were ok, basic appearance and the sink bench had a large amount of badly patched up damage. The 2nd bedroom and bathroom was downstairs, the bedroom heater was not on and the bathroom towel rail was so hot it burnt, with a dial that didn’t work. Showers adequate. Beds were ok. Firm. The windows were a view of the building across the street and a fairly daggy lane below. So not great. Also the train station and we went to sleep listening to announcements from there. Noise was not a big problem, and we had nearly no noise from the rest of the building. Apart from some daggy hallways, bathrooms, Single slow small lift. Locked rooftop and basic reception. Our problem was the ceiling. A massive water leak all over the hallway that was not dealt with immediately. It’s obvious by the ceiling that this is an ongoing issue. I worry about the safety of the ceiling and our safety was compromised by a water on the floor. I had to ask twice for it to be fixed. Apparently maintenance had been messaged, communication was non existent. No apologies, not good enough. The price is for room size and location. Don’t expect good service or high quality.

Northumberland Hotel
3.3/552 Reviews
The room is clean, but the wifi signal inside is weak. There is almost no service, it is more self-service. There is a bus stop at the door and close to a large supermarket. Good value for money.
Edinburgh Marriott Hotel Holyrood

Edinburgh Old Town
Location near Arthur's Throne, very good, hotel service is particularly good, breakfast was not eaten, but I feel pretty good,
Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel
4.3/5122 Reviews
Edinburgh Old Town
Hotel was well located and very clean inside. Rooms made up daily. Breakfast was ok. Odd smell in bathroom - think the drains are not right. Main issues - bathroom extractor fan continuously on -annoying. The doors to other rooms slam noisily and some awful motor/generator out back of hotel also causing constant noise. Hot rooms; window only opens a crack. Overpriced for what is essentially a marginally polished premier inn.
Residence Inn by Marriott Edinburgh
4.5/566 Reviews
We loved this hotel. Amazing value for money, if this hotel was in london it would be £200+ a night I think. The location is great, the city center is within 10 mins walking distance but it’s just far enough out to get a peaceful nights sleep. The breakfast is OK, does the job really, nothing to write home about. Will defiantly stay here again and recommend to friends
Hanover 71 Suites
4.1/541 Reviews
New Town
I booked a junior suite with garden view & patio. I got a dirty, musty and smelly small basement room next to the kitchen with a view on a wall & noisy frying exhaust (from full haggis Scottish breakfast to fish & chips all day). This isn’t a suite or an apartment. It’s overpriced accommodation (over £200/night) and a scam. I expressed my distress a couple of times. Nobody cared. Noise from the street was intense at night. I will never go back and do not recommend this place. I cannot comment on rooms on upper floors, but avoid the room Nb 1 at all costs! There is no reception, this isn’t a hotel in any way shape or form. They care for the little cafe on the ground floor and just make money from the rooms. I’d prepaid so I had to stay. On the plus side the location is very central and the sheets/towels were clean. The rest of the room and especially bathroom was filthy and unmaintained. The photos will speak for themselves. Too bad you can’t smell through the photos or hear the exhaust or street noise.
