A perfect place for one night. I had a very quiet room with a comfortable bed, good TV and shower. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't seem to be working but otherwise my room was excellent. We had our meal in the hotel bar and received a discount for charging it to our room thus making it very good... More

Staff were amazing! They went above and beyond to accommodate requests and looked after us very well during our weekend stay. The deluxe room on the top floor was impressive. Super sized room, more like a suite with marble fireplace, seating area and huge tv. Will definitely come back to this hotel - loved it!!!

I always use this hotel when I visit Edinburgh. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished, and, important for Edinburgh, warm and cosy. Staff are friendly and helpful. I was immediately upgraded to a better room when I had a problem with the bathroom on my last visit. Great location. Easy walking distance into the city centre and close to... More

This is a truly delightful hotel and the employees were most pleasant and helpful during our visit. We had come from the USA for the Hogmanay festival and found the location of the hotel fine for our needs. We walked everywhere! We also ate at the hotel which was very pleasant.

We came here because of the tripadvisor reviews. When arrive found out the place was far from city centre. Hotel is very basic with bad quality rooms and not well isolated. Staff was fine but did not like the standards of the hotel therefore I will not come back as we paid enough to be in a better hotel than... More

We opted to stay here as it was conveniently close to where our daughter lives. We read mixed reviews but really could not fault the hotel, given the very reasonable price. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm; not huge in size, but we only used it to sleep. Good range of choice for... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Links Hotel. Its a small and unassuming hotel overlooking a lovely park. It not in the most ideal location, but its an easy walk to Edinburgh Castle, Old Town, the Royal Mile and other popular spots. The hotel itself is historic, but has enough modern touches to make it comfortable. We loved room... More
