A very nice and clean hotel. I guess one of the best :) Very close to the centre. If you arrive here before 6:00 pm - the best and fastest way to get here is through the St. Jamse's Shopping Centre. You just need the exit to the Playhouse. After 6 pm - go round Calton Hill. The staff was... More

Loved every aspect of this friendly, and very homely hotel. Lots of character to this 18th century building. Rooms clean and spacious. Staff very friendly. Deb, second to none. A short walk to St.James Mall, and Princes Street. Try it for yourself I'll be back there :)

Stayed here for two nights after a very poor experience at the hotel next door. Despite the fact that we had basically been shuffled in very inconveniently in the middle of the breakfast hour, the owner was very accommodating and helpful in getting our luggage to our room as soon as it was available and providing us with tips about...

Stayed here for 3 nights, its ideally situated for all the sites. The staff were friendly and helpfut, the room was clean as was the hotel. I would definately stay here again the only fault was the bed was a bit hard. But if your looking for a very good hotel at a cheap price then stay at this hotel..... More

I stayed in a family room with my parents. As long as you can manage stairs (no lift) this is a brilliant hotel for the money. Quiet, clean, friendly and within a short stroll to Princes street! I highly recommend the Abbey hotel.

Staff was friendly, rooms are dated and small, but clean. Lounge in lobby has good prices but nobody in there. Great location 10 min walk to princess ave, 15 to royal mile. 5 min to bars or restaurants. Beautiful garden in the rear for reading or relaxing. Thanks Dillon

Decided to stay overnight in Edinburgh at the last minute. Clean and welcoming rooms, lovely building and friendly staff. Good location and it was pretty easy on the wallet. Would recommend it if you're looking for a bed and a hot breakfast.

I was at the Abbey hotel for a few nights, and had booked a 4-bed room with a group of friends. It's a cute little hotel run by a friendly Scottish couple. However the beds were rather uncomfortable which made it difficult to sleep well. Breakfast is only served from 7.30 to 9am which means you're most likely missing it... More

I booked a single room for 7 nights while vacationing in Edinburgh. I got a room one the first floor (second floor if you are an american) facing the garden. The room was nice but not much room for storage. One closet without drawers and a desk with two drawers. A small LCD television with loads of channels and of... More

Not a place I will ever cross the threshold again. Given a so called double room in the basement, the skylight outside in the ladder strewn staircase outside stopped it being totally without light. Always needed a light on inside. Also used a spare toilet roll to prop the window open, it didn't stay open on its own. The breakfast... More
