The Malmaison is really a lovely hotel, the staff were very accommodating and gave us lots of info about Edinburgh and offered to do things like holding on to our bags on check out and ordering us a cab home from the restaurant - things we hadn't even thought about until they suggested it.
It's not right in the centre and we took a cab in the evening and a bus in the daytime - about 10/15mins to the Christmas market in the centre of town.
A stone's throw from the hotel is a lovely little fish restaurant called the Ship on the Shore. A-ma-zing. Fantastic food, fabulous atmosphere, medium-to-pricey though. We had a meal for two (starter, main, no desert, one bottle of wine) and it was about 80 quid.
Also our room in the Malmaison was a joke - I don't know if we got upgraded or something, but with two full size doubles in there we could have slept an army. Cosy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It's the mother of all Malmaison's. The former house of ill-repute now has a reputation that's second to none, and it's also just a short taxi ride away from Waverley Station. Malmaison Edinburgh bides at Leith (as they say up here), just a stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia, but offering far more funky luxury. Yes, when you want exciting hotels in Edinburgh, this is the King, not the castle. Our Edinburgh hotel puts you close to all of Edinburgh's cobbled splendours, incredible shopping and famous galleries. Then it's back to Mal for Scots dining with a twist, a fine selection of single malts and mojitos in the bar and then back to the slinkiest and most spectacular rooms in the Scots capital. ... more less
