We've taken a group of 25 people twice to Edinburgh and have stayed at The Place both times. We were delighted with the friendliness and overwhelming accommodation of the staff! These delightful people went above and beyond in their picking up LOTS of luggage from the bus, taking it to the lounge, patiently distributing the room keys, and carrying all... More

Stayed here for the bank holiday weekend. We got a great deal for a Suite which was, as we were told by staff, the best room in the hotel. The hotel is small but so cozy and staff are really friendly and helpful. The bar area is great with excellent decor. Our suite was lovely. The biggest bed in the... More

The hotel was in a fabulous location, only a short walk from Waverley station and there were plenty of bus stops nearby running frequent services. At the bottom of the street there was a small complex with a 'Vue' cinema and various restaurants where we could have anything from pub food to Tapas to Italian, as well as a small... More

All the staff were very friendly and accommodating, they were happy to store my breast milk that I had to express while away! The room was quite basic but nice enough although the bed was very uncomfortable, as were the pillows and the shower had very little pressure. We did mention this to the receptionist but she was quite dismissive... More

Dear Carrie T, Thank you for taking the time to post a review after your recent stay. I’m sorry our bedding wasn’t to your liking. I checked the room you occupied and found the mattress and pillows to be in good order, so I can only assume this is a matter of personal preference. I’d be happy to discuss in... More

Have just returned from 4 days in The Place in Edinburgh and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is very convenient for the bus station, station, Princes Street and all other 'tourist' areas. We drove into Edinburgh and parked up in The Place designated car park which was about 400 mtrs away in a barriered car park. As we walked... More

Had a great weekend once again at The Place. Very central to city centre and very handy for rail, bus and tram services if required. Nice staff and pleasant decor. Would certainly have no problems booking this hotel again
