Looking online at this hotel, the impression was that this was a lovely place with charm. It was a bit embarrassing, as I was the one who booked it, when myself and my mum arrived and went upstairs to our room. The wallpaper was shoddy and falling off the wall in some places, some of the panels in the bathroom... More

Well I'll start with the positives I suppose.. Fresh towels and that's about it. Well first off I'd like to mention the cleaners are thieves; I left loose change hanging around the room as a test of trust. I left the room in the morning to go shopping and later on my return the change had gone. More expensive items... More

Very quite place, the buildings are a little too old but not too bad (probably they need some maintenance), the position is good and also the price was good for the period (new year's eve), reception very helpful.

Very disappointed with this hotel. Clearly no money has been invested for years. When we arrived the lady implied the lift was not working, in fact there was no lift! We booked a deluxe double which was very shabby, the cleanliness of the place was very poor. The bedroom itself was tiny with stains on the carpet, furniture was broken,... More

We came to Edinburgh for our honeymoon, and decided to come back to thus hotel as we had enjoyed it the first time, so the not so good points first, there has clearly been a burst pipe or flood from the room above ours as the water damage can still be seen with the wallpaper peeling in this area, if...

My partner and I stayed here a few weeks ago.The hotel is extremely over priced and extremely disappointing. I booked a king size room with a four poster bed we did not get what we paid for, Instead we got a double bed no four poster either. The carpet was filthy, the walls covered in dust and I mean covered.... More

Not as aesthetically pleasing as it appears on the website but the room was pretty clean and the staff are so lovely and helpful! I would recommend the hotel for any fans of faulty towers...it is reminiscent of the show but in a pleasant and fun way! 24 hour bar is a massive bonus! If you're up for a bit... More

Due to lack of availability in Edinburgh with the Tattoo and Fringe festival I booked this hotel. The location is one of it's redeeming features located near to Haymarket railway station. The building itself was quite grand in it's day but unfortunately that day has long since gone. The spiral staircase no lift would be a bit of a problem... More

Ended up here by mistake during festival week, lulled by the name and google streetview - DON'T think it is the Ritz group that has taken over the Hilton, it isn't. It's one of the myriad of also-ran hotels you can find in any big city. Is it "Terrible" one star? No, it deserves two, just about, but reading reviews... More
