I was so impressed with our room it was spacious and very modern and elegantly decorated. The staff were so friendly and happy to help. On a side note, the added extra touches in the room don't hurt either, freshly baked muffins,proper coffee, a ghd straightener and the most lovely shampoo and conditioner. We will be back

I took my very picky partner here as a surprise for his 29th birthday and I can honestly say we were both incredibly happy with everything this hotel had to offer. Service was excellent, very friendly and we were even shown around our room at arrival. The room was beautiful and very clean. It offered a lot of extras such... More

The lobby was small but very clean with funky furniture and decor and beautiful flowers . The reception staff were very friendly throughout our stay helping with directions... More

We traveled with a family of 6, my wife and 4 children (21,19,17 and 13), and we stayed at the serviced apartment at the Rutland. It is right down the road from the hotel lobby. The accommodations were great, as was the location. Easy walking distance to everything. Very modern furnishings and very nice decorations. Staff was very helpful with... More

We stayed here in June this year. Excellent hotel located right at the end of Princes Street which is the main shopping street of Edinburgh. From an accommodation perspective, rooms are very very comfortable and well stocked. The bath has an in-built jacuzzi and is spacious. The check-in process was smooth and the ladies at the reception are very helpful.... More

We absolutely love this hotel. Staff are very friendly, room is very clean and comfortable. Love the idea that they even have a hair straightener (a GHD) in the room as well! Welcome gift is a nice touch. Each one of us receive a muffin (even the baby). Staff are very thoughtful, saw that we have a baby with us,... More

Just returned from a terrific stay. We enjoyed everything about the Rutland--great location, beautiful rooms, lovely staff--except that there's no one up front to help you with maps, public transit, reservations, etc. There is one person up front, but if (s)he's busy or on the phone you're out of luck, especially if you're pressed for time. For example, we needed... More

The Rutland is ideally situated at the west end of Princes Street so everything is within easy walking distance. The reception staff could not be more friendly or helpful and the room was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities one would expect, plus some extra touches like complimentary muffins! The air-conditioning could be more effective but thanks to... More

The Rutland Hotel is set right in the heart of the city centre at the west end of Princes Street boasting exceptional views of Edinburgh Castle. An elegant boutique hotel with twelve beautifully appointed guest rooms and 1 stylish two-bedroom apartment with a private garden.

Our guests comfort and enjoyment is at the forefront of our minds with Arran Aromatics toiletries and Nespresso coffee machines coupled with little curios and a well-stocked mini bar in every room.
