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

We had read reviews which were very off-putting. However,mew had already booked. Magen we arrived, we were greeted really nicely by the young male receptionist who was very helpful, and gave us directions into the city by foot. We were a family of grandma, son and two 10-year old twin boys. We were given Room 5 which was spacious, clean,... More

We booked the Adelphi for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival as everywhere else was full unless you were prepared to pay a fortune, and even then we paid £140 for a double room which in my opinion was worth about £30. It's not a very pleasant hotel - it smells a bit damp, mixed with the smell of paint, though where... More

booked to stay here a couple of nights but after arriving realised it was a disgusting place and turned around and left. no refund even though they have very falsely advertised and no help from booking.com who falsely advertised for them, so will not be returning or using booking.com again and advise anyone reading this to do the same!
