We paid £78 for one night here. It's not awful and I must say the staff are very nice but they switch the heating off over summer....which I have issue with. After all it's Scotland not Kenya you know? Bed was comfortable and the Internet was good. No breakfast despite price. Single glazing means heating such be on. Felt like... More

The room we had was in desperate need of a make over, wall paper, curtains and carpet all dated. The bedding and towels were very clean tho, we were in a standard room with shared shower room again this was surprisingly clean, is was a long walk from the train station so would recommend a taxi or train

I can see this place has been slated on here by most of the reviewers however I feel that it doesn't do it justice. I stayed here for 1 night as we were in Edinburgh for a gig at Murrayfield. We found the place no problem. There's on street parking outside and all around so we had no bother finding... More

Despite this being a low budget hotel, it still failed to meet some basic standards I would expect for the £60 a night we paid. The reception area was basically a hallway at the stairway and was far too small for purpose - our group of 4 filled the area, and then a family of 5 turned up while we... More

The Adelphi Hotel, Edinburgh. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. You must be cautious. Granted, this place was cheap, it was the cheapest on the booking website we used. We were in the dreaded room 2. A faint smell of sex lube still hung in the air. The curtains half open. A great view... More

A small uncomfortable room, a shared bathroom was also not okay. The staff was not really friendly and we felt unsafe there. The only nice point is a peaceful park view from the window. It's definitely a cheap option so may be the price/quality ratio was fair. Anyway, we decided to change the hotel.

A friend and I (both young women in our early 20s) stayed here for 2 nights. The room was fairly basic but very clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly. We felt safe and were allowed to store our luggage for a few hours after check out which was very helpful! Not a fan of the shared bathroom... More

We booked our hotels day by day and found a great offer for the Adelphi online. But what we found was nothing like the Hotel we thought we had booked: dirty carpet, tiny room, dirty bathroom, no television (it didnt work), wifi with charge (in the offer we booked included) and no staff to answer questions. What a fail!

If you've ever wanted to experience prison but don't want to commit a crime then I suggest the Adelphi. We were in the now notorious room number 2. If you open the door wide enough you can be seen as far as the middle of the park across the road. Not ideal if you are self conscious enough to want... More
