Beautiful hotel,decor quite dark but I know it's their style as have stayed in 2 other mal hotels. Bedroom although very clean,did have stains on carpet and broken plug sockets. We upgraded to full English breakfast which refers to grilled bacon,sausage etc. When it arrived you could see grease/oil on food and plate. We informed the waitress who actually laughed... More

We stayed there last August bank holiday when the Fringe was also going on. All the 4 and 5 star hotels in the Old Town were either fully booked or charging stupid rates so ended up at Malmaison. It is in Leith which is only a 15-20 minute cab ride from the Centre and which costs around £5-6 so no... More

We stayed at the Malmaison Edinburgh for a weekend treat for my husbands birthday. We got a taxi from the airport which worked out to be £26+, it was our first time in Edinburgh and it took all the stress away. Malmaison is located in the Port of Leith and has stunning views over the harbour with its pretty cobbled... More

Fantastic location, all staff were so helpful, the bar staff were so friendly and obliging. I left my hearing aid in the room after we checked out and the front of house staff went to no end of trouble until it was found. Breakfast was lovely and rooms were cosy, we will definitely return, a weekend to remember.

We stayed for a single night for my birthday. We were upgraded to a club which was stylish and spacious. Staff were friendly and efficient and we loved the little Malmaison touches (complimentary cocktail, 5k running map and swish toiletries). The only thing I'd change would be to make it proper Scottish breakfast (with tattie scone and Lorne sausage).

Tatty, rooms boiling hot ,breakfast service and content a total disgrace. Don't waste your money .Fantastic setting but not worth staying in .They need to give the place a good shake up and this was opinion was held up by how few people who were staying there.

I stayed at the Mal twice since the last published review...TripAdvisor wouldn't let me update it last visit due to time lapse....i must say I've enjoyed it both times and look forward to visiting again. The rooms look a lot brighter think they've had a lick of paint and new furniture. Lovely large rooms with super king sized really comfy... More

Recently stayed at this Malmaison for a night in late November 2015. Booked for a birthday night away, which included dinner and breakfast. Lovely hotel and great location by the docks. Very grand appearance outside and nicely decorated inside as well. We had a quiet room on the 2nd floor overlooking the cobbled lane to the side of the hotel.... More
