Had a fantastic stay at The Place. Brilliant staff, they were really knowledgeable and helpful. Booked a standard double room and it was as exactly as described on the website, really good. We had meal there, it was delicious and so was breakfast. The bar looks really cool, with fun guys and a great range of drinks. And the location... More

It's always difficult to compare hotels because the location and the things you do and see while you're in a city can influence how you feel about the place. So this is not a review about Edinburgh. This is a review about The Place and in order to be as objective as possible I am comparing it with 4 star... More

The Place is convenient for the centre of Edinburgh, being 10 minutes walk to Princes Street.It is in an old terrace, but is modernised throughout. The rooms were comfortable and quiet with views out to the Firth of Forth. There is a modest restaurant for eating in. Tea and coffee making facilities, and a TV were fine. It was a... More

Recently stayed for our sixth visit. Hotel is absolutely perfect for a city theatre visit. Fantastic room (we had a huge suite), lovely dinner included in the break and hotel organises the best seats for the show. Location just a few steps from the Playhouse Theatre is ideal, with a really nice, well-stocked bar for a nightcap. Perfect for shopping... More

I booked the hotel room at a reasonable price and it did not disappoint me at all. Despite the slow wifi connection, the hotel room is very comfortable. Staff are very helpful and friendly as well. The hotel is basically at the heart of the city centre and everything is within walkable distance.

I booked into the cheapest room in the hotel, as I was in Edinburgh for training and I work for a charity. I arrived late but soon wished I'd arrived earlier... They were quiet that night so had upgraded me from the smallest room in the hotel, to the most amazing suite!! I couldn't believe it! The room was huge,... More

We booked in here for a two night stay recently, upon first inspection the hotel looked very welcoming, extremely clean and fresh. The booking in process was very easy & staff very friendly and helpful. We where allocated a room downstairs in what I say was the old basement. The room was clean, bright, basic but if your using the... More

Where can I start? I booked the theatre package through Colin, the events manager for a few of us back in February to stay and see Wicked at the edinburgh playhouse, as the months went on more people wanted to tag along, I called Colin whom not only arranged the rooms but also the theatre tickets direct from the theatre...
