You cannot fault the Mercure for being in one of the best spots in Edinburgh. But that is its selling point. The standard rooms are extremely cramped, to the point where the tea-making has to be under the table as there is no room elsewhere, and you either get a single bed with a small amount of moving space around...

We stayed at this hotel as a couple in Jan 2014. Staff at check in were very professional and efficient. We requested a room looking out to princes st and the views were great. We had no problem with the room and did not find it tired,which I notice other people have mentioned. I would definitely stay here again,as the... More

The Mercure Edinburgh Princes Street (don't you hate it when it's spelled 'Princess'? It's two princes, not one princess) - anyway - this evidently used to be the finest hotel in Edinburgh, called the Mount Royal - the name is still etched on the outside doors. It is an old building and is starting to look a little tired, although... More

We chose the Mercure for it's location, right on Prince's Street. We had a lovely room overlooking the street with a panoramic view of the old town and castle. Although the bathroom was small and dated due to the age of the building, the shower itself was new and was easily regulated. The bed and all other facilities were new... More

A very brief stay at this hotel before a meeting the next day. Room was excellent although I was fortunate to have been upgraded to a large room with view of the castle (well sort of view due to typical weather!) Breakfast was the usual offering. Staff friendly and attentive, check-out took a matter of seconds. All in all a... More

Fab location, on a good shopping street and walking distance to everything. Room not very big and bathroom in need of an update. We were at the back of the hotel but it was still quite noisy, got woke by random noises.

My first impression of the Mercure Hotel in Princes Street was what a fantastic location for a hotel right in the centre of Princes Street in close proximity to Waverley Station. It is perhaps for this very reason the hotel is tired and desperately needing a revamp as it clearly attracts tourists in numbers. On my way to my room... More

There were a lot of good things about this hotel, the location being one of them. It's very central and only a few minutes walk from Waverley bridge, which is very handy as this is where the aircoach stops. The royal mile is also very close, but an uphill walk. It's in the new part of town and there are... More
