An average 'Boutique Hotel' - value for money in terms the room and service. We stayed in Edinbrugh for 2 nights and wanted something that was central to all the touristy sites and comfortable. The double room was absolutely huge, bathroom was okay, towels were clean (although they were not changed the two days we were there). Good location in... More

When we got there, there were no staff around so we had it ring the hotel to get someone to check us in. The room was huge! And the bathroom was adequate. Everything was great so long as you didn't look to closely. Great location within easy walking distance of town and murrayfield stadium

Came here with my husband for his 65th birthday. Made the mistake of getting off at Waverly street station instead of Haymarket but was pleasantly surprised as it was only a 15 min gentle walk from there . It would have been less than 2 mins from Haymarket. The room we booked was a double room with a four poster... More

I made a booking through Itison in January. Decided to use it last weekend 5/04/14. The staff were first class from entering the hotel, booking in, luggage carried up to our room. The beds were superb as was the linen. Room a bit on the small side but plenty of everything you needed. Particularly loved the ghd straighteners along with... More

And the decore is so 1980`s granny style... More

The hotel has recently been renovated and some rooms are still being worked on. Great place overal the only things missing was the restaurant which I was told will soon reopen. There is no parking on site but there are plenty of parkings around the place and if you go there over the weekend you can get a weekend parking... More

This hotel is much beyond our expectation. Location is not in the center but not that far, just buy a one day bus ticket and all will be fine. And it's very near to Haymarket station as well, just a walking distance! The place is small but neat, cozy, and well decorated. The staffs are real friendly, he even brought... More

Had a lovely break to Edinburgh😃. BUT I will never ever, and I mean NEVER EVER, again forget to do proper research via Tripadvisor. "Hotel Ritz"....should have been called "Hotel Blitz".
