Stayed at this hotel with Mrs, son (25) and daughter (21) for a surprise birthday treat for Mrs S. The hotel is only 5 mins taxi ride from Waverley station or you can walk it in about 15 mins. The rooms we had were very spacious and fulfilled our requirements, I shared a room with my son and in our... More

We were in Edinburgh for Hogmanay and were fortunate to have found a hotel in such a fantastic location, wonderful area! Restaurants, shopping, beautiful walks. Room was just adequate, but staff were happy to have us move across the hall to a more spacious room when it came available. If you do some looking around and depending on the time... More

The Abbey hotel is situated in a great location 10 minutes walk from Waverley station in a quiet road with Carlton hill behind. Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and willing to please. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice. Small bedroom but adequate, warm, clean, and comfortable beds. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Great hotel with lovely views from rooms. The manager was extremely helpful & friendly & full of advice regarding the local area. We missed the breakfast slot by half an hour but they still cooked us up 5 tasty breakfasts on request which we were very grateful for! Would definitely stay again.

My friend used Booking.Com and I used Laterooms. Com and. We both came up with the Abbey Hotel. The price was good and we were welcomed with a smile when we arrived. The room was very clean and tidy. We ate in Wetherspoons nearby and once I was back in my room I discovered a very comfortable bed. The shower... More

Needed an overnight stay in Edinburgh and after a search on Laterooms.com came upon the Abbey Hotel. Had stayed here before, so knew what to expect: clean rooms, good breakfast. It's situated close to the town centre and the staff is friendly.

Stayed overnight in this hotel whilst attending a wedding in a nearby hotel the location is a 10 min walk from Waverly steps. The hotel is comfortable well priced. The food is good and plentiful. In all we enjoyed our stay.

The result of a quick online search we were lucky to have booked the Abbey Hotel. Very well placed, the rooms are newly refurbished, comfortable and a good price. Efficient and friendly staff. Like most Edinburgh hotels it's stairs rather than a lift!

Stayed here start of December to see family and go to a Scottish dance. Found it hard to find a hotel in Edinburgh as the xmas markets were on and so many hotels were booked. Stumbled across this hotel totally by accident. But so glad I did. Hotel was clean, close to town centre and breakfast was lovely. Will be... More

I stayed there for 2 nights on 19th & 20th of November 2014. It was 10 minutes walk from rail station. They were friendly and helpful. If you want to stay a couple of days for visiting Edinburgh you can stay that hotel. It was the cheapest one. Breakfast included. There was a very well breakfast menu. Room was clean.
