Really strange smell hits you as soon as you go in, room was crammed, terrible lighting, dirty sink and freezing, old and torn decor. Will never stay there again even if it was free and wouldn't dream of eating there.

I journeyed to Edinburgh on a Groupon Voucher bought for me as a present. As far as the Edinburgh experience goes this hotel was the complete opposite. Edinburgh is a wonderful, fresh friendly, well maintained city, seemlessly mixing the mediveval with the modern, tastefully and respectfully. The Adelphi Hotel on the other hand is a rundown tenement house stuck permanently... More

The “hotel” is an old georgian house where each room has been turned into a bedroom (cramming beds wherever they fit and using the term generously), with a shared toilet per floor, and one bathroom overall. Never have I seen a hotel where the guests have to queue to use the toilet or shower. Our particular room (No.2) was directly... More

When we arrived at the hotel in Edinburgh after 2,5 hours of delay and through the pouring rain, we were greeted by a man in his pyjama's (for which I not blaim him, because it was 00:30 when we finally arrived). We already knew we had to pay 10 pounds for checking in after 22:00, but we did not know... More

We were a little wary of our stay due to the reviews. But our stay was fine, other than the customer service. Upon arriving the recieptionist just handed us our keys without showing us where to go. But other than that rhe room was spotless, as was the shower and toilet. The bed was comfy, the night was quiet. For... More

We booked one night as there was nowhere else in the city due to the Ryder Cup (so they had massively upped their prices). Only read reviews after we'd booked which was a big mistake. We had a large room lit by one low powered overhead light. Not even a bedside light. Cheap, junk shop furniture. Very dingy and depressing... More

TO AVOID ! If you pay for the Garden view just know that they can put you in a dark and noisy small bedroom between the staircase, the entrance and the common toilets. The room n°2 is to avoid. We asked for changing and we had to wait the next day to get what you paid for. Beware, everything is... More

We booked this hotel on August 2014 because of the price. At first, I was not expected this one is of any good because we booked it at last minutes. However, by the time we got there, it turned out to be a pleasant place. The staffs were nice and helpful. Nishan, the receptionist, is a nice and outgoing guy.... More

My cousin and I stayed at the Adelphi during the fringe festival for the weekend. But it soon became to be known as "Faulty Towers". We made an error by arriving late to our booking at the hotel however we had paid in Full beforehand so there shouldn't have been a major problem. As we arrived we saw the place... More
