This hotel doesn't do what it says on the tin. It may be names after the world famous brand but that's where the similarity ends. This is a budget hotel, if you are just looking for a cheap place to sleep for the night with clean linen this is the place for you. If you are looking for quality I'd... More

I left something at the Ritz Edinburgh and I called the reception from another city and they said they don't have it. I was coming back to Edinburgh anyway so thought I will drop in and check again. I went to the reception and saw the staff were using it!! The reception is always unmanned and I never had anyone... More

A perfectly acceptable hotel to stay in - the bed was comfortable, the rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. The décor is a little dated but in no ways does this affect the stay in the hotel. No lift is available if you are on a top floor which can be a hindrance if not able to carry... More

GOOD: 1.The staff is friendly; 2. Luggage room if you have afternoon flight; 3.Relatively close to main attractions. BAD: everything else. Dirty,no lift,poor furniture. Above all, what really annoyed us was the PLASTIC CUPS??? RITZ - Edinburgh, CHANGE YOUR NAME!!! (example - Hostel Backpackers,etc.)

Shocking hotel, the room we was in there was no lighting in bathroom, TV was broke, no heating and it was freezing. We complained and was upgraded to a superior room, which we was really grateful for. However there was nothing superior about the room at all. The wall paper was peeling off walls it was in a bad was.... More

But, wonderful! So central, warm and those beautiful floor to ceiling triple drapes. We loved this place with it's quite friendly lil' bar full of interesting Folk. A very old building adapted to us! We loved our short stay.

First weekend in October 2014 I was in Edinburgh with friends and we stayed at the Ritz. Going into the hotel the stale smell is really not nice and puts you on your guard for what's to come. Our group was on the top floor, no lift but the nice guy at reception brought our bags up for us. There... More

horrible place. the place used to be a B&B but after it stopped serving breakfast it decided that it is a hotel. let me highlight the experience: 3rd floor room - no lift ans narrow staircase. the room smelled like mold and the floor was covered in an old dirty looking cheap carpet. the floor squeaked like it was going...

Restaurant very nice and the food was very good, rooms a little dirty, people cleaning very unpleasant and from young blonde woman who cleaned a room we feel the ALCOHOL!. We does not come to this hotel for the price, I do not recommend!
