It was clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. Near enough of Edinburgh center, lots of places to eat and drink on Leith Walk - walking distance. We didn't eat breakfast because it was a little too expensive.

It was the first time that we had ever stayed in a Malmaison, sadly we were quite disappointed with the stay. Upon arrival payment was taken for the room and dinner upfront which is not a problem but rather unusual as we stay at a lot of hotels and normal practice is for hotels to pre-authorise your card and then...

Needed a place last minute for Edinburgh fringe so only needed basic accommodation. This hotel provided that, but the room was a bit grubby. Slight mildew on lamp, curtains and stain on bedspread. Miscellaneous stains on carpet too. View of car park and storage units. Also hairs on the mattress protector (no, I didn't intentionally look, just accidentally pulled it... More

After staying at three other Malmaison Hotels in different parts of the country I was expecting the same attention to detail and the same standards in room quality quality of food and quality of service. Unfortunately i was very disappointed the room was small and dark and not particularly clean add to this the outlook was straight out to a... More

Stayed in Leith for the first time as Edinburgh was very full due to the Fringe Festival and the fact it was a last minute booking for us. Room was beautiful, we didn't get the requested upgrade to the Leith Suite which was a shame. Rooms need more light! The mood lighting is lovely but you need to see to... More

Our latest Malmaison (just three more to go until we've visited the lot!) and we were there for one night at the start of the Fringe, before moving into a cheaper Air BnB flat located more centrally. And the Mal here certainly takes advantage of the festival month, when prices leap hugely despite being located some 45 minutes' walk from... More

I recently stayed at this hotel and it was terrible for the money. I booked a double room and was greeted with a view of containers at the back of the hotel after stating it was my anniversary with my Partner, the room had a hole in the carpet, it had a live wire opening at the heating panel and...

Stayed overnight following the tattoo. Staff excellent welcome. Rooms tired, expensive drinks in room. Hard bed and carpet in room very worn. Breakfast ok but table very sticky, plastic toast that comes out ages before breakfast so cold when breakfast arrives.
