3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2007

Stayed for 2 nights on a short break to Edinburgh. I was very disappointed with the room. The decor was shabby and the room very small. In addition, the bed was extremely uncomfortable . On the other hand, the room was clean with tea and coffee making facilities. The location of the hotel was excellent, central yet quiet. In addition... More

This hotel is in an excellent location just off the end of Princes Street and yet situated in a very quiet spot. Guests arriving on foot should approach via Waterloo Place which avoids the steep hill. We had the Executive Suite on the second floor in the old part of the hotel which has no lift. We had to carry... More

My significant other decided to whisk me away to Scotland for my 35th birthday. He booked the Parliament hotel and on arrival (after finally finding it) I was pleasantly impressed. It's not fantastic, but for the money we paid I was not expecting fantastic! The room we had was at the front and overlooked a cobbled road. It was quiet... More

Lovely hotel with some beautiful features - eg: the old fashioned elevator, now a telephone room, and the wood-panelled reception/lounge area. We got a bargain deal on visitscotland.com, with Sunday night accommodation less than half the normal room rate. The room we had was small but comfortable and clean, with nice furnishings. After being a day at the Edinburgh Festival... More

I really enjoyed our stay at the Parliament House. It was quite clean, had friendly service, and great food. The rooms and bathroom were spacious and clean. Their lobby was quintessentially Scottish! My only gripe is the price--the tariff has gone up considerably since our last stay, and we've resorted to renting flats when in Edinburgh. With the USD getting... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Arrived late, at midnight, and we had a very warm welcom. The location of the hotel is great, close to the city center, but at the same time sheltered from the worst traffic. Our room was nice and well cleaned. The only thing I didn't like about it was the bed, the mattress felt lumpy.... More

Very disappointed in the Parliament House Hotel. We paid £150 a night through Hotels.com (not including breakfast) and were given Room 3 - a small, dark room that stank of smoke and had cigarette butts lining the window sill. We asked for a non-smoking room and with some reluctance (on the part of the receptionist) were moved to a better... More

My two sisters and I recently stayed three nights at the Parliament House Hotel. We shared the hotel's one family room, which includes two singles and a double bed. The bathroom has been reconfigured for accessibility, and the room includes a small refrigerator and minibar. The room is decorated in a tasteful contemporary design. Check in was handled quickly.
