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

Firstly, there are a few good points to this hotel, the lady that greeted us was very pleasant, polite and helpful,the entrance and main public areas do come across well thought out, clean and well designed- sadly this is where the pleasantries end After reading previous reviews as they were so mixed we booked and took a chance, I sadly...

Room (number 8 and 9 in basement): Terrible Breakfast: Very good We paid way too much for what we've got in return... If you get one of the rooms in the basement: stay somewhere else... Those rooms are the main reason why you find so ambiguous reviews here... I feel we were over-charged... I also remember seeing 4 stars on... More

All great so far. We have bern put in a family suite even though it's just the 2 of us. Large, spacious room with a bathroom to die for. The chap who checked us in couldn't have been any more obliging. Awaiting breakfast with anticipation-it has a lot to live up to after reading the guest book.

No one available to meet us on arrival, never mind let us into the hotel. Envelopes with room keys left outside for us to help ourselves but our names were not there. We took another envelope and left a contact number as we suspected a mix up in names. (This was a guess after standing outside for an hour, as... More

Ok I'm a Glaswegian, however having worked in our capital city for 10 years I searched eagerly for accommodation but was nervous when about the only decent looking place was halfway down the slightly edgy Leith Walk. I was relieved and chuffed on our arrival. So the facts; It's a good 20 min walk to the start of Princes St.... More

Stayed here for Edinburgh Tattoo. Reasonably priced for an expensive Edinburgh time of year. Booked with late rooms.com £215 for 2 nights. About 20 mins walk to main shops/castle in one direction and around the same to Royal Yacht in opposite but bus stop outside if not fancying the walk. Very nice small pizzeria called Origano if you go to... More

A friend referred us to this place & we are glad he did. We were given a room upstairs, it was a medium size room with a large bathroom, £60 per night for 2 persons. The owner, a nice lady was there to greet us when we checked in & no question was asked other than our names, easy check... More
