This hotel was clean, cheap and very central. My partner and I are both 24, young travellers looking for a nice spot to sleep. Staff were lovely, helpful. And we had AMAZING views of the mountains out of our window. We enjoyed our stay and we would stay there again if on a budget.

We stayed here for two nights and had an excellent rate. Check in was smooth and friendly. They give you a key for your room which is also needed to operate the lift. We had a room with 2 single beds on the street side. The decor was in good order and all was clean, just a good room with... More

My friend and I stayed in the King Edward for one night while visiting a friend in Banff. We chose the King Eddie due to it's location right on Banff Avenue, and the very reasonable price. We chose to share a room with one queen bed. The rooms are quite small, allowing for just enough space for the bed, a... More

I stayed one night here with my boyfriend and our friend (who had never been to banff before). Very, very basic accommodations but the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. We had a family room (king sized bed and two singles) and we could have easily brought another person. Great location - right on Banff Ave so great... More

The worst hotel experience I ever had. The rooms were SOOOO small, we couldn't fit 3 people in them. I was travelling with my sister and brother-in-law for snowboarding, and there was only one bed in the room which was used by both of them. I had no choice but to sleep on the hide-away couch which was the most... More

Having a hotel in the towm main avenue is pretty convinient. For business a solo travel is a good option, just small step for good restaurants a excellent tea. Cleaness was good and the best was the pillow, soft, clean and confortable. Linen and douvet quiet old, may need refreshment, washroon very clean but outdate. The hotel is under renovation,... More

I stayed in two rooms on this trip as I decided to extend my stay. Banff is a pretty expensive place to stay, so the rate here was very good in the scheme of things. The location is perfect, just five minutes walk to the Greyhound and train station, and as you step out of the hotel itself you are... More

I stayed in this hotel 6 nights, while attending a conference nearby. My choice was based on the cost of the hotel, which is really cheap when compared with the other hotels. The only problem is the absence of breakfast. Other than that, it is totally ok. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are good. However, I was... More
