Stayed here with the kids for a couple of days. 10 minutes walk from the city centre, booked it in advance at very reasonable rates. Staff were excellent, pool area kept the kids busy for a few hours each day and easy to walk into town and all the sights and views. Didn't eat there (too many other great places).... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights foe our first trip to Edinburgh. We got an excellent rate including the nice breakfasts on offer. The staff were very helpful.the location is excellent, only a slow stroll away from the royal mile. I used the pool facilities also whilst here and they are 10/10. Overall great hotel.

Stayed here on a Friday night after work with a friend so we could enjoy a full day in Edinburgh on the Saturday. It was a cheap nights stay compared to everywhere else in Edinburgh and it was within walking distance to Edinburgh castle, the royal mile and princes street. Clean and comfortable room. Only thing is the car parking... More

The Novotel Edinburgh Centre is in a great location for visiting the castle, royal mile, and museums. The lobby is comfortable and clean. There is a pool downstairs and sauna. Our room was the main reason for my mediocre review. First the heat - there didn't seem to be ANY. I turned the thermostat all the way up and it... More

Second time we have stayed here with our toddler as it is very child friendly and convenient. Everything is as you would expect from a Novotel - clean, everything worked as it should, nice reception area with tablets and PCs, free wifi with good reception in the room. Pool area is nice (although could do with a baby change unit... More

Excellent staff! Very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable! Extremely well run hotel which... More

We stayed here for one night. It was not a great experience for a supposed 4 Star Hotel. The staff were overall both indifferent and unhelpful. We came back from a night out and were refused a late drink. We phoned down for something to eat and not one thing we asked from the food advertised was available, again complete... More
