A short walk (approximately 4-5 minutes) from the local tram stop, and I only a few minutes on the tram from the heart of Edinburgh, this hotel is perfectly placed just outside the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival. Room was spacious with a king size bed which was clean and... More

Upon arrival at this hotel I was in awe of the gorgeous setting that it was in, ten minutes walk from Princes St, this hotel is of old beauty. I cannot fault this hotel as we paid £60 for the night, it was warm, the shower worked and the bed was comfy. If you like modern hotels, it's not the... More

Just far enough away from town centre to be quiet, but a short walk in. All of the staff were extremely accommodating, the room was very spacious and well laid out. The continental breakfast was good, I had the full fry up which kept me going until lunch. T Neil and all of the staff, thank you for a great... More

The heater in my room was so weak. So we felt cold at night. Furthermore, there is no free wifi. It's not useful. It's located near Heymarket and it's far from the main sight seeing points. Regarding the fee, it's not expensive.

Short walk to attractions, traditional hotel with very nice helpful staff. Continental breakfast was more than sufficient. Near to Haymarket airport link stop. We used a triple which was spacious and comfortable .

We stayed on the 2nd floor in a perfectly comfortable and clean triple room. We had the plentiful continental breakfast and I must say I enjoyed the best porridge I have tasted in ages. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and gave us some great tips of where to visit and places to eat around Edinburgh. We enjoyed... More

This was our second visit to the Thisle hotel and it was even better than the first. The rooms were nice and cosy warm and very comfortable. The staff couldn't do enough for you and Neil the hotel manager was brilliant always going that extra mile. They ran out of rose wine and there was 5 of us drinking it... More
