I revisited the Kenneth Mackenzie as it had been so convenient on my previous trip to Edinburgh. From the location it is so easy to access any part of the city centre and only about a 10-15 minute walk to the Waverly Station. Also if you are visiting the George Square university campus it is a couple of blocks from... More

Unless you take great pride in staying at sub-par lodging, thinking you're getting a great deal, I'd pass on Kenneth Mackenzie. You're not getting that great of a deal. This place is okay ... it's clean, the location is good --just a 10 minute walk from the Royal Mile and Waverly train station, and the breakfast was good. But the... More

Stayed for two nights. Room very clean and relatively comfortable but there was a distinct feel of uni halls remaining here. Rooms and en-suite could do with modernisation and upgrading. Breakfast was the highlight with a lovely selection of cooked and cold produce to choose from.

I was invited to Edinburgh to work with the University so I wasn't paying. They booked me into the Kenneth Mackenzie. It is a good basic hotel. It is not fancy, but it is does a good job. The breakfast was good and the people serving it were friendly. The room was not luxurious, but it had everything I needed.... More

I was very shocked at this hotel on arrival because it had been advertised as a 3 star hotel and it looked very run down at the front. Reception is also located in a different building. There is no lift at this hotel which is not very well advertised on the website so if you hate lugging your suitcase up... More

Exceptional hotel. I have stayed in far better hotels, yes, but I have paid a lot more for them too. For the price I was very pleased with my room which was clean, had a comfy bed, working TV and powerful hot shower. Service was brilliant, everyone was genuinely very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the icing on the cake.... More

Room was fine and very clean.The bathroom was a little small but it was very clean and did the job. Very well priced for the location as it was very near the festival theatre. Breakfast was very good and the staff were friendly.

Slightly shocked on arrival that this appeared to be a student type base. Not at all what was suggested on the booking site. Room was okay with the basic facilities and was spotless. Good bed and quiet enough location to sleep soundly. Definitely breakfast was the best I've had at any hotel for quite a while. Plenty of choice for... More

I wish their was an option between average and very good! Some friends were visiting me for the weekend and as I live just outside Edinburgh and the last train leaves at 10.30pm I decided to stay over too. Let's be honest, from the reviews and look of this place, if I'd have been involved in booking accommodation I would... More

Very basic accommodation in Edinburgh. I rated it 'average' only because apparently Edinburgh scene is not brilliant for reasonably priced hotels but it's rather depressing. I think it was a hall for students, now used as b&b. Location is convenient, very near the University. There is no lift, you will have to drag your suitcase upstairs on your own (3... More
