We had a bit of trouble with parking, but eventually found a space. The rooms were great- 1 double bed, 1 double sofa bed, a TV, a Nespresso machine and capsules, a mini bar, a hairdryer, an iron and ironing board, 1 toilet room and 1 bathroom. The only problems were that the bathroom door didn't lock and the AC... More

We just got back from a three nights stay at the Novotel. The location is very good in a quiet street just a short walk from the Castle. If you are lucky like us you might get a Castle view! Our bedroom was very well equipped, bright and spacious. The bathroom had both shower and bath and the toilet are... More

The hotel is well located but the rooms are small, bathroom separate to the toilet. Swimming pool - dirty floor, no facilities, entrance with code that you are not informed about previously so you have to run back to the reception. No toilets at the pool. For one night stay ok but for a romantic holiday in the beautiful Edinburgh,... More

I chose this hotel spacifically as it had onsite secure parking. This was issued on a 1st come 1st served basis. The hotel failed to mention this when they accepted my £115... More

All needs are catered for whether business, short breaks or longer stays for all ages. We hope to visit again in the future. Location of the hotel is ideal for visiting most of the places of interest by foot if you are able or reasonably priced taxi. One attraction is situated right next door. The Fire Museum.

Stayed here last week and we were very happy with the hotel. The room was large and clean and the twin beds were comfortable and much bigger than is usual in hotels. Bathroom was well set out with separate shower cubicle. Also nice idea the toilet was was not in the bathroom but completely separate. All in all nice room... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in April. Lovely clean hotel. Pleasant staff. The room was nice and clean and big enough for 2 adults, 2 kids. Breakfasts were good, not sure if I would want to pay £14 extra but we had them included. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, but we did have drinks... More

Overall we had a great stay at the Novotel in Edinburgh. The staff where excellent, rooms where ok, dont go for executive as these are just the same as standard with slippers and a robe at extra £50 per night. A bit out of the centre kn terms of location but value for money if booked on cheap sites.
