Reading some of the reviews and staying at this hotel has confirmed one thing....people just love to moan on trip advisor! We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived at 12pm on the Saturday afternoon, a bit early of check in, so the receptionist took our bags for us. After some... More

Breakfast was superb and a great choice. Only thing I would do differently would be take room at the front as bottle collection arrived around 6.am so a bit... More

Fabulous little boutique hotel in a great location, just meters from all the best shopping and eating/drinking & just a stones throw across the bridge from Old Town. I have nothing negative to say at all, we had a brilliant stay. The room was huge, with an enormous, incredibly comfortable bed. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and all amenities at your...

I had high expectations for Rick's after having read so many good reviews but left disappointed. The hotel is in a great location. It's steps away from shopping, bars and restaurants and the hotel bar has a nice ambiance. The room, particularly the bed was very comfortable. There are nice touches like a loaded iPod and hair straightener along w/a... More

We have just returned from a brilliant stay at Rick's. We regularly eat lunch here when we are in Edinburgh shopping and had been looking for an excuse to stay overnight, what a super experience. We must have been very lucky but had no noise outside, we were in room 3 which is on the ground at the back of... More

It's true that the reception staff are charming and the rooms are nicely decked out with unexpected extras like ipods and hair straighteners - but that doesn't make up for awful street noise as skips are frequently being emptied of glass, and a room so stuffy we couldn't breath without opening the door. The rooms are also reached through a... More
