Stayed here two nights during April 2015. The hotel is situated in Leith Docks, with free hotel parking and about a 30 minute walk into the centre. The area was pleasant overlooking the water, with plenty of bars, restaurants and a shopping centre 5 minutes walk away. The hotel was a lovely building, with tasteful decor. The thing that stands...

I booked this hotel as a treat for my partners birthday. We are not flush by any means so it was a big deal to spend so much money on a hotel room, especially for two nights. When I booked, I opted for an upgrade if possible. I also wrote to the hotel separately stating it was a birthday and... More

We were greatly disappointed by our stay at Malmaison Edinburgh. Our double room could not have been further from the 'sophisticated splendour ' advertised on their website. The carpets throughout the hotel were stained, the curtains in our room were barely hanging by plastic railings and hooks. Our bath was chipped and the buttons in the lift were ripped off.... More

Stayed for one night. Got a free upgrade on arrival from a Superior Room to a Suite. Beautiful room overlooking the water. Breakfast was great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Plenty free parking. Cannot wait to return.

Lovely 2 night stay at Malmaison in a fabulous room, evening meal was excellent, and breakfasts were perfect, with plenty of choice. Delicious cocktails in the bar with nibbles. Wonderful staff, all very attentive and helpful. The hotel is a ten minute walk to the Ocean Terminal shopping centre and only two minutes to the bus stop with buses every... More

I spent 3 months working in Leith and was looking for somewhere to stay that didn't feel like a bland, "corporate" hotel. Malmaison fitted the bill. There are a number of little twists in the details that are different from other chains of hotels. The staff at the Leith Malmaison were all very friendly and made me feel at home.... More

Stayed at the Malmaison as its a minutes walk from our Edinburgh office so very conveniently located. It's right by the harbour in Leith in a nice area with good pubs nearby. Stayed for 1 night in room 217 which was huge with 2 double beds! Decor in the room was fine, the bathroom could do with an update but... More

We booked to stay for 1night and decided just to book for dinner to as the menu looked good. Arrived later than expected and changed our table booking to 8pm which was no problem. The room was ok nothing special for the price and the view was a wall. Not very modern with the shower over the bath. Went down... More

I decided to treat my long term girlfirend (and the mother of my child) to a belated valentine's weekend away to Edinburgh. I got a great deal through booking.com for the room. We arrived early but decided to see if we could get checked in, which the staff were happy to help with and so we got a room quickly... More
