Literally booked last minute kinda thing and was perfect for what i needed. what I paid I wasnt expecting much but it literally blew me away with what I got. Ive paid double the amount before to stay in lower quality rooms in Edinburgh. If i need to stay... More

Less than 15 minute walk to Haymarket restaurants and pubs while less than one block from two city bus stops. Simple, complimentary breakfast was sufficient to start my day. The room furniture, fixtures and linens were a dated style but clean and in good condition thus adequate. Lighting in the room and hallways was sparse. A person with mobility difficulties,... More

Booked the hotel for a concert on 3rd June. Very close to the venue. We were parked in restrictive parking zone and the staff had no problem putting a ticket on to cover the time we were out. Our room was basic, but very clean and the bed was soo comfortable! Just wish I had more time in it! Breakfast... More

I booked this hotel a year in advance as we were going to a concert at Murrayfield. The hotel is only a 10min walk from Haymarket train station, and if you keep going, Murrayfield is only a further 10min walk, which is great! The hotel itself looks impressive from the outside however I was slightly dissapointed with the room. The... More

Stayed for one night with my toddler. Staff were lovely, room clean, relatively large and very quiet. Would stay again. No longer linked to the Indian takeaway but staff recommended another who deliver. Website contact details out of date & didn't receive reply from email address but online booking went through & all was fine. Very good value for money.... More

Stayed for two nights from 09/05/2014. I was a little concerned following the reviews. Yes it is looking dated but for a cheap stay it was ok. The staff were helpful and polite. The continental breakfast was ok , I have had worse at more expensive places. Room was clean , so was the bathroom , bed linen and towels... More

The hotel is quite sweet, it is in a nice building and the outside is particularly nice. The room we ordered was a twin. however it was actually a double bed and a pull out bed next to the window which was only suitable for a child. Apart from that it was decent enough. The breakfast I was extremely disappointed... More

Pleasantly welcomed, no complaints with staff who attended. Our room is advertised as Duluxe - just depends on your expectations. First impressions of the room.... was... well.... its ok. Carpet looked like it hadn't been hoovered to deluxe standard. No soap for hand washing. Towels and Sheet Bedding were to the deluxe standard I was expecting: however no duvet. Blankets... More

I didnt have alot of expectations after reading a couple of reviews. But the raj hotel has plenty of character, great value for money, and could not be better located for murrayfield. It only cost £6 in a taxi to popular bars etc. But easy to walk aswell. Definatley will stay again!!!
