Brief stay in Edinburgh

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

bdbauer Couples - 12/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Recently my wife and I stayed at this property, having searched for a clean, centrally-located and affordable hotel in Edinburgh. Needless to say, it isn't always easy to find those last two traits together during high season, but we were glad to have found this hotel. It is a fairly new hotel in a renovated historic building (a former bank, I think), and although the rooms are a bit on the small side, everything was clean, functional, and the decor was inviting. There is a bar on the ground floor, and as we arrived fairly late (after 9:00) on the first night, we were able to order a light meal there, which was good. The breakfast buffet--although lacking hot dishes like eggs, bacon, etc.--still had a wide variety of items (cereals, breads, cheese, fruit, etc.), and was quite satisfying. The location is good as well--we arrived by train and even with our suitcases, the walk from Waverly Station was not long nor difficult (about 10 minutes or so). Whether trying to reach historic sites in the Old Town, going for an evening walk up Calton Hill at sunset (definitely recommended), or sampling the wide variety of good restaurants in New Town, this hotel is well situated for each. And last but definitely not least, the staff were very helpful, from check in through departure. We had a very early flight out after our second night, and they were helpful with recommendations for getting to the airport (e.g., bus versus taxi), and they had a packed breakfast ready to take with us when we left at 4:00 a.m. that morning (thank you Alex, Costa, Janna, and everybody else who helped us). All in all, we would gladly stay here again if we ever return to Edinburgh.

Very enjoyable weekend stay

Very much enjoyed the breakfast, though it was a little crowded in the dining area. Location of the hotel is great - very central.

Dear Mike, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are glad to see that you had a pleasant stay with us and found our location convenient. We would be happy to welcome you again in the future. Kind Regards, Konstantinos Zmpekos - Front Office Shift Leader

Provided what I needed. Friendly helpful service, great location, nice room. My only criticism is that after housekeeping called to make up the room whilst I was in the room and I asked them to return later, they never did! For 3 days!

Efficient comfortable and friendly

Jonathan K. Families - 09/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We had a great experience from arrival at this hotel. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay, going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Room was fantastic, we had a triple room as there were three adults. Adequate space, comfortable beds and a great view over St Andrews Square. The continental Breakfast was great, fresh food and loads of choice. Availability until 11am was also appreciated. The 24 hour coffee station is also a welcome extra. Will definitely stay here again when I next return to Edinburgh!

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for the amazing feedback of your stay ! It is nice to see that you had a pleasant stay with us and all of its aspects were up to your expectations. We would be happy to welcome you again anytime in the future. Kind Regards, Konstantinos Zmpekos - Front Office Shift Leader

Paul F. Couples - 09/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The hotel is in an ideal location. When we arrived, the check-in experience was easy as could be (I wish I could remember the name of the young Scottish man who shared the ground rules with us). The room was small, but I am accustomed to that in big cities, and it was quite comfortable. Breakfast was varied and tasty; it was a bit of a madhouse but we were down there at peak time, so understandable. And finally, check-out was a breeze too. All in all, complete satisfaction. Thank you.

Dear Paul, Thank you very much for the great feedback of your stay at our hotel! We are really pleased to see that you enjoyed the time you spent with us and we will hope to see you again very soon.

Wonderful location and staff

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Dave W. Business - 08/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We stayed three nights, and generally it was an excellent stay. The location is stunning, with easy access to New Town, a short walk to Old Town, and brilliant transit links. The two issues I’d name are first that the spaces look MUCH larger in the online photos; the desk chair was so tightly wedged in between bed and desk that it was unusable by anyone other than a small child. Second, the towels were awful - one was so threadbare that I could literally see my hand through parts of it. I’ll close, though, with another word of appreciation for the staff. From arrival to departure to bar and breakfast, it was one of the better experience with staff that I’ve experienced out of hundreds of hotel stays. Thank you all!

Dear Dave, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us with such positive feedback about our staff in the hotel. It really is great to hear that you found our team to be so friendly and helpful, I will pass all these comments back to the team who I know will be just as pleased as I was to hear them. With regard to the towels in the hotel, please be assured that we are aware of the issues with the quality and we are working with the linen company that we use to try to resolve this for the future. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Patrick

The hotel is in an excellent position in an attractive square near shops and galleries and the tram for the airport has a stop in St Andrews Square. The room was clean and we had a nice view onto the square and beyond. Breakfast was great and the staff were always helpful and polite.

Terrible breakfast. Couldn’t relax during day as building work was going on. No remote for TV.

This is our second visit to this hotel. It is a great place to stay as it is so handy for the shops, eating places,etc. The hotel is very clean and decor is fresh looking. Staff are friendly and helpful. We had a much bigger room this time, which we appreciated. There is complementary tea, coffee, hot chocolate along from the reception area which we enjoyed.

It is always a pleasure to receive such positive feedback and I will share all of your kind comments with our team as I know they will be just as happy as I am to hear them.

John Couples - 03/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The hotel is great and the breakfast is good. All good except we were in room 102, where a double bed is pushed against the wall so one person has to climb over another to get in and out. We are in our late sixties and the bed was a problem. 102 should probably be billed as a single. Otherwise, great

Dear John, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay in our hotel. I was very pleased to see that you found our hotel to be great and the breakfast to be good. I was sorry to hear that the bed in room 102 was not to your expectations, we will take this information on board and try to avoid this situation in the future. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Many thanks, Patrick

Good base for exploring Edinburgh. Friendly staff. Clean. Trying hard to be ecological - yoghurt in glass jars at breakfast; no stupid little plastic bottles of shampoo in the bathroom - well done!

We try our best to be Eco-friendly, so your comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we would be happy to welcome you again in the future.
