Disappointing! We arrived to be greeted by a typed letter about being 'called away on urgent business' and our key left in the open hallway. After requesting a room on one of the upper floors we were given one in the basement. Our room was dirty, with cobwebs hanging off the ceiling, 3 items of furniture were broken (arm of... More

I read some of the reviews before traveling and did worry about what I would find. When I arrived there was an envelope with my keys and a letter explaining various details e.g. the toilet "for your exclusive use" is just down the corridor. I worried but needn't have done so. Yes the toilet was a few feet away, but... More

My plan was to treat my mum for a lovely weekend in Edinburgh for her 50th birthday. So I booked a night in the hotel. Stayed in room 5. Everything seemed okay to start with. But at 7.30pm we started hearing a dripping noise from the bathroom, it turned out to be the upstairs guests bath water dripping through one... More

First of all... I'm not one to write a negative review (I believe in positive or quiet) but this hotel needs to be taken down a peg because of the lies in advertising. The mobile website claimed "five star luxury" which was what enticed me, the reviews were good - 4 out of 5 on tripadvisor is usually ok. The... More

I must admit after reading the reviews on the Hotel we were a bit dubious about our reservation. However they could not be further from the truth. We have just returned from a three night stay. We arrived slightly earlier than we had said, 2pm. There was an envelope waiting in the beautiful vestibule with our name on. A nice... More

Having read reviews I was slightly concerned about what we would find. However myself and 3 friends stayed here on 18th October and we all agreed good value for money accommodation. We had family room. (Two adjoining numbers 7&8) lots of stairs up but didn't bother us. Rooms clean, beds comfortable. Tea/coffee available. One very small issue hot tap in... More

I booked my daughter and grandson into this hotel for a two night stay in Edinburgh. They thought it was absolutely wonderful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great value for money. Well situated for Princes Street and Ocean Terminal. Would definitely use this hotel again and recommend to others.

Myself and my partner recently booked a weekend in Edinburgh and booked into the Capital residence..However I wish I'd read the reviews first. To start with its a gorgeous building full of character, loved the high ceilings (not in the basement)and the large windows. I'd read reviews about room 8 and typically it was just our luck to get this... More

My fiancé and I stayed in room 10, this was the apartment with the French doors out to the garden (being a smoker this was great! We had not requested this so it was a lovely extra). We arrived around 4pm to our keys in an envelope in the foyer with a letter stating they had been called away unexpectedly.... More

My girlfriend planned a night here as part of my birthday weekend. When we arrived we walked towards the main door and noticed two men sitting smoking on the step. We thought it was pretty rude for guests to do this until we noticed the capital residence logo on one of their tshirts. We couldnt honestly believe that they were... More
