Stayed here with my sister for my 23rd birthday. The hotel is so qwuirky it's one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. Staff were extremely friendly. It's right in the city centre so ideal for getting around. Loved the Ipod docking station in the wall, brilliant idea.

You could not ask for a better location, as the castle and the royal mile are all within easy walking distance. The pub next door has a great breakfast (it was included with out booking). The rooms are kitschy and cute, and while a little on the small side, not at all bad for a European city. The staff was... More

Excellent. Clean, funky, nice room, very affordable. Very nice decor. Staff friendly and efficient. We didn't know quite what to expect from the photos but overall it exceeded expectations. Nice little touches in the rooms as well. Overall excellent.

Just returned from Edinburgh after staying at the Grassmarket Hotel for four nights. The hotel is in a fantastic location, a beautiful area with lots of amenities right on the doorstep. I read some reviews on here that stated some rooms were noisy late into the night, so we were pleased to have a room at the back. However, the... More

Central location, very friendly staff; clean, functioning rooms, but on the small side if you do not have the triples or the twins. Quite warm, windows didn't open but probably just as well as kept the rooms quieter. Many nice boutique quirks. Loved the marshmallow teacakes in the rooms. Decaf coffee at reception, if you ask. Lots of nearby restaurants... More

The Grassmarket Hotel is located right at the heart of the Old Town. On foot it's less than five minutes from Edinburgh Castle and 10-15 minutes to Princess Street in the New Town. The staff were polite and helpful. Our room was small but functional. There wasn't much space to walk and the bed took up most of the room.... More

A fantastic place to stay right in the heart of the old town in Edinburgh. It's quirky but modern, though the rooms might be a little small for some tastes. Genuine pub downstairs adjoining the hotel beats soulless hotel bars anyday.

Only had one short night at the Grassmarket Hotel but throughly enjoyed my stay. The funky decor at reception is nothing compared to the comic wall paper in rooms. The room was well equipped with everything you need including a tea pot to yourself. I was lucky to have a room on the corner so was great to sit and... More
