My partner and i stayed at king edward while we looked for work and a room . putting the loudness of the area and late night partying aside, we began to get itchy and had 5 sleepless nights and countless itchy welts, after checking tripadvisor we knew it was bed bugs! we booked elsewhere and got right out of there!...

We were stucked in Banff on our way to Jasper due to the weather. We found a small room for $60 for 2 single beds. It would have been OK for one night other than the loud noise from other guests coming back at 3.00 am and this guy knocking at every door at 8.30 am as he couldn't remember... More

King Edward hotel - the nicest thing that I love about this hotel is that it is situated right in the heart of downtown. I love the location becuase it iss right there next to really everything..the shopping, the dining and much more. The rooms may not be as good as some of the other hotels in Banff but you... More

We stayed for three nights off season. The bed I was in was incredibly static - I had sparks coming off of me every time I moved in it (very unpleasant). The coffee cups supplied were styrofoam. Other than that, nothing really to complain about. Very good locations; however, the street outside can be very noisy, especially on a Saturday... More

We paid $70 for a small room overlooking main street. Small room but extremely comfortable. We were missing the remote for our TV and the staff went down the road to buy a new one compatible with the TV. Very helpful! We will be back!

Good thing i checked out their 2 double beds. The beds are tiny and the room is small. We went for the family room which was fair. Good location and price was ok. Beds weren't that comfy. Rooms need renos.

We booked this hotel through an online provider. The rate was low considering it was Banff. Overall the experience was ok, but the rooms were small and very simple. It was obvious that there had been very little updating done in this hotel. Reminded me more of a rooming house, except you had your own washroom. We are not ones... More

Stayed at the King Edward to attend a business function in town. Was enticed by the central location & attractive rates, but the convenience & savings were not worth going through the hassle & angst of dealing with a bed-bug infestation. To the credit of the staff/mangement, the cost of my entire 3-night stay was refunded but it sure didn't... More

As others have written, yes, it is a bit old and in need of a makeover; however, for one night, my sister and I didn't have much of a problem here. We had a room overlooking Banff Avenue and when we shut the window, no noise. Very nice. No bedbug issues with us. The bathroom was fine too although the... More

We had low expectations of this hotel so we were not surprised to find the accommodations were adequate but somewhat run down. We were in town on the weekend and felt lucky to find a place to lay our heads, period. It was nice to find the hotel had a flat screen TV as many places of this type still... More
