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

I have visited Rick's twice through 5pm deals and have always been thoroughly chuffed with my experience. The rooms are clean and well decorated. The food and cocktails are lovely. The staff are attentive and even recommended bars to go to nearby. It's a treat to stay at Ricks. Thank you

Room was small but comfortable. Good value, but service was haphazard. Food good except for the smoked haddock fish cakes that only had a smell of fish ! Nice wines. Close to centre for all attractions .

This hotel is set in a really good location for a stay in Edinburgh. The rooms are very clean and the bed comfortable with lots of added extras (Ipod, hairdryer, GHDs, complimentary bottled water, White Company toiletries etc - lots of nice finishing touches). Good power shower. The staff were charming - polite, cheerful and very helpful. Breakfast was really... More

I had wanted to stay at Rick's for a whiIe - the marketing made the hotel looked stylish and chic. I was, however, disappointed with my experience of the boutique hotel. I felt that the rooms here are not representative of a 4 star venue. They were dark and dingy with cheap fittings. Bathrooms are badly designed, poorly maintained and... More
