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!

On arrival we were greeted by an unhelpful Receptionist who blatantly ignored us and continued her mobile phone conversation. Eventually she got round to serving us only to tell us they had no record of our booking. Several telephone calls later she eventually sorted us out a room which she said was double and had en suite facilities. Lies, lies,... More

OK, the bed was clean and comfortable enough, and the (not powerful) shower was hot enough, but our room (two singles and a double bed) was horrid. The kettle and hair dryer worked, but the shutter-style window made us wonder if we could escape through it in case of a fire. Not that we'd want to try, as we'd have... More

The price you see, pay and result is not what you would expect. We were charged £150 for a horrible room. Shower was dribbling. Carpet looks nasty. Curtains urinated on. Resulted us not staying there at all. We checked in and come back and checked out. We were promised by a Lady called Prette that we would be refunding and... More

Sorry, this review is really late - had stayed here in early December of 2009. Room and shared bath though were not the cleanest I've experienced - I recall there were bed bugs in the bed of my single room, but my friend said there was none in his. Obviously I did not have a good night's sleep as I... More

Very nice room, warm, clean and with a very helpful and friendly staff! You can walk to the centre of Edinburgh from there (30min walk with a beautiful view) or you can take a very quick bus. Great service for a very low price.
