Last minute decision to stay for one night on Easter Sunday. Very helpful staff gave us our room early, allowing us to enjoy the sunshine in the afternoon. Our room was spacious and clean, although there were some signs that maintenance was needed in the bathroom - mirror frame has water damage and one or two small tiles missing on... More

Stayed here with my husband and 3 year old for 2 nights over the Easter weekend. The room rates were okay however we were charged an additional £30 per night for an extra bed for our daughter which I thought was unusual. The rooms were spacious and clean, the beds were extremely comfy however the double bed was two singles... More

We were surprised and please to see that Malmaison maintained their £89 Sunday stay deal for the bank holiday. The hotel is a great base for wining and dining in Leith. We didn't eat in the hotel, why would you as the area is awash with great seafood restaurants. The room was comfortable and quiet which suited us to a... More

Stayed here on an Easter Offer deal so can't complain about price. About £150 for a standard room and 3 course meal (restricted to a max of £19.95 each, barely enough for a main course) and a cocktail. The room was totally average, carpet was worn and dirty in patches, the mirrors were all dirty. All the fittings were original... More

Only stayed here for one night with work but it was great. Nice location at the water front in Leith. Comfy bed and good size room. Room service meal was tasty and quick. Reception staff smiley and helpful.

My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary with a couple of nights away. The first of which we decided to treat ourselves to a night in Edinburgh's Malmaison. Sunday night stopover deal, which we thought was excellent value for money, given the chain's reputation and the four star rating of the hotel. We were even more delighted that... More

We love this hotel for its location. We usually stay here at Christmas and during the Edinburgh festival. For a 2-3 day stay it is spot on. Good points: Location, location, location. Right next to the shore in Leith means it is really handy for travel to the city and there are lots of restaurants close by. The breakfasts are... More

This was the 2nd time that my wife and I had stayed at the Malmaison Edinburgh and again we were not disappointed. We got a great deal on a room upgrade (which was great for our 2yr old daughter) to a Suite and had an awesome view over the city as we could see Edinburgh Castle and Arthurs Seat. The... More

We decided to return to the Malmaison in Leith as we had enjoyed staying there last year. The staff were, once again, very helpful - even offering to make a cocktail that they no longer do. Breakfast was ample and there was lots of choice. Looking forward to returning in the future!!

In its heyday this was the place to be. But its communal areas are very tired and in need of a revamp. It doesn't have a nice aroma on entering. The rooms we had were superior twins and were very large and roomy. They used to supply robes and slippers but no longer do so. I stayed in a cheaper... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It's the mother of all Malmaison's. The former house of ill-repute now has a reputation that's second to none, and it's also just a short taxi ride away from Waverley Station. Malmaison Edinburgh bides at Leith (as they say up here), just a stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia, but offering far more funky luxury. Yes, when you want exciting hotels in Edinburgh, this is the King, not the castle. Our Edinburgh hotel puts you close to all of Edinburgh's cobbled splendours, incredible shopping and famous galleries. Then it's back to Mal for Scots dining with a twist, a fine selection of single malts and mojitos in the bar and then back to the slinkiest and most spectacular rooms in the Scots capital. ... more   less
