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

We booked a suite, which was nice enough though nothing special. Overlooked leith harbour which was nice but gather from the photos there are nicer rooms than the one we were allocated. Great bar downstairs. Fab location if you're going out in Leith (which makes a pleasant change from Central Edinburgh).

Location. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the heart of the Shore area of Leith. ASk for a hotel looking out on to the water and you can wake up with the sound of gulls, felt like we were on a beach! Staff. We arrived on a Friday to be allocated Room 116. When we got in... More

I have given it 3 stars because the staff were really friendly and the only saving grace. The Reception staff were friendly and checked us in quickly. The room was awful - it had a tiny window which had the bottom half obscured with an opaque dirty sticker. It looked out directly onto overflowing industrials skips. The room had a... More

We had booked a room back in February but arrived at the hotel to find that they had no record of our reservation. The problem was handled magnificently. We were offered coffee and then (with our agreement) shipped off by taxi to the Malmaison's sister establishment (Hotel du Vin) in the centre of Edinburgh (a faultless stay). As a consequence...

I've never yet been disappointed by a Malmaison hotel. This one's in Leith, a suburb of Edinburgh that's up and coming and in the now-fashionable docks area, yet just ten minutes' taxi ride to the city centre. Warm welcome on arrival, casual but classy ambience throughout. Water view suite on third floor was first rate, spacious and very well equipped... More

Great hotel, lovely spacious rooms, friendly & helpful staff, excellent support during our weeklong workshop. Great location too. Food was excellent throughout, with a healthy variety and delicious sauces. Yum!

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
