We had a lovely balcony room on the 7th floor for 2 nights. The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable and clean. The balcony was huge, and as the weather was lovely we enjoyed sitting outside watching the buzz of Edinburgh. A fan was kindly brought to our room when requested. For the room we had, we thought it... More

Enjoyable 3 night stay in a lovely room with great view overlooking the Castle. Our room was very spacious and well provided with usual amenities. Nothing was lacking. Staff were always polite and accommodating. They even ensured there would be Soy milk present for our breakfast when we mentioned our dietary request. Would happily stay at this hotel again.

I booked this hotel for 3 nights via an email offer and had a second thought about checking it out - I assumed Mercure would be a reasonable standard no matter where and didn't like what I read on trip advisor! However, we had a great stay here. You cannot fault the location. Double balcony room looking onto Princes Street.... More

This hotel has a very good, central location which was great for the purpose of my stay. I booked this hotel as it was one of the few that offered wheelchair access. It also is within pushing distance (just!) from Waverly station. Upon arrival I was confronted with a step; not too much trouble for me as I was travelling... More

This hotel worked fine for a weekend. Arrived by train, and Waverley station is just across the road. Tram and bus stops are also convenient for getting back to the airport. The hotel ticks the boxes ie clean, comfy, central location, OK food, and the room we booked had a good view over Princes Street to the Castle, but you... More

The hotel was clean, and the bed comfortable. Room was very nice looking. Was kind of warm, and no Air Conditioning. They did provide a fan. The room we had had a beautiful view of the castle. The street the hotel is on is very noisy (Princes), and not available for driving in a car (only bus and taxi). The... More

Lovely room on the 7th floor with a double balcony overlooking the town. Unfortunately the large wheel obscured the view. Not sure if this is a permanent fixture. The room was clean and comfortable. Very large bed, small table and chairs, a sofa and a flat screen TV. Bathroom with bath and shower over. The negatives, very noisy vent in... More

For an international Conference, I stayed 5 nights. I wanted to stay another 3 nights, on private conditions. However, the reception of the Hotel did not act adequately on my questions, whatever I tried to get my problem solved, That's a pity
