Stayed here for 2 nights in July, met by excellent and helpful staff who made check in seamless, even though we were early they'd allowed us to leave our bags and even took them up to our room for us! TV didn't work for the first night but was replaced within 24 hours and we had a generous reduction from... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times and each time found the staff very friendly. The hotel is right in the city centre so is idea for visiting Edinburgh. They have no parking but there is secure parking near the John Lewis store, 24hours, and about 20 minutes away. The rooms are not that large but practical with all... More

This hotel is a revaluation! Such a beautiful and well run boutique hotel in the heart of Edinburgh. The staff were knowledgable and we were given a great Scottish welcome at reception! The room was classily decorated with a hair dryer, GHD and iPod! I recommend the margarita slush puppy's at the cocktail bar. Overall couldn't be happier.

I recently stayed at Rick's was really impressed with its quaintness and quietness in the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms were perfectly sized and had all the necessary mod cons. Staff were always eager to help and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This charming hotel is located in the heart of the city. For the same reason, it can get a bit noisy sometimes. Very nice experience. Many excelent resturants at a walking distance. One of the preferred landscapes for tourists, the Edinburgh Castle, is just a few blocks away.

We selected Rick's based on price, location and reviews, and we were delighted when we arrived. Our room was fresh, clean, new and lovely. The staff were very helpful and kind. We ate breakfast in the hotel, and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend staying at Rick's.

Arrived earlier than the check-in time but we asked if we could have our room early as we had to be at a graduation for 2.30, the staff made every effort to assist and we were allocated our room in plenty of time to refresh and change. Room nice and well stocked mini bar. The hotels location is perfect, all... More

A very friendly greeting from the check in staff in a central location to the city centre. I opted to get a taxi from the station as it was a hot day and I had heavy luggage. The taxi cost £6. The room was immaculate and was spacious and had all the facilities that you would need. The staff were... More

We got a friendly greeting from the staff and the room was clean and comfortable, albeit on the small side. The location is excellent, close to the centre of Princes St. OK value for money, and a nice bar and restaurant downstairs (although it looked a bit upmarket for us so we ate at the pub down the street). Apart... More

Thank you for your review. I'm very sorry you didn't manage to eat with us, as we have a great menu with lots of options for all. We are right in the city centre, so unfortunately we can be affected with street noise. Thank you again for your review More
