We had a lovely stay at Market St Hotel. It is ideal if you travelling by train as it is literally just across the road from Waverley station. The Reception staff were extremely friendly and efficient (especially Barbara who couldnt do enough to help us before and during our stay). The room was very clean and the covid measures in place around the hotel meant we felt safe. Although it is near the station, it is very quiet inside the hotel and we had a good nights sleep as the bed and pillows are very comfy. We will definitely book here again when we next go to Edinburgh.

Hotel's Favorite
Myself and my partner stayed here for 4 nights and what can we say, we loved it here. First of all it’s perfectly located opposite Waverley train station so easy walking distance to all the main attractions. We had a cosy room and before we arrived I was a bit worried it was going to be a bit small but I was wrong, for a cosy room it was more spacious than expected. The area as you walk in had the sink with drawers and shelves and the wardrobe with a door off in one direction for your shower and toilet and then the other way the shutter doors to your bed with more drawers, dresser, chair and a nice size TV. Mini bar was complimentary, we enjoyed the crisps and biscuits which were regularly restocked but you also had drinks in the fridge which we only had a water and the G&T on the last night. We only had tea in the room so can’t comment on the coffee facilities. Dyson hairdryer and GHD straighteners are a great touch. I always take mine with me as a regular hotel hairdryer isn’t sufficient for my long thick hair, so I appreciate this from a hotel :) The slide wooden-door over the window in the room is great and really cuts out the light. Fab little slippers and dressing gowns also included. Great sized toiletries, bigger than the regular toiletries you would normally get, including shampoo and conditioner, so there was no need to take with us. We had the breakfast rate so had breakfast every morning. Breakfast was in Nor Loft which is the champagne bar so perfect location to see out over some of the Edinburgh sights,including Princes Street. You have numerous items to help yourself to, including tea, coffee, juices, cereal, toast, fruit, etc and then 5 or so items you can request to be cooked for you. I would question if it’s actually worth £18, however the staff are so lovely and welcoming and the views made it. On the menu it does have champagne and it’s under the help yourself section but I could not find it :) although I didn’t need it as I did indulge in a few glasses in the bar in the evenings, plus we got a complimentary glass each when we checked in. Overall we loved our stay here. Loved being greeted by a member of the team on the ground floor each time we returned to the hotel, to the reception staff on floor 7 and the team in Nor Loft. We hope to return one day...

Great hotel near station, easy walking to City sites. Easy check in, welcoming staff, lovely room - would happily return. Enjoyed a few drinks in the Nor Loft Champagne bar. Champagne breakfast is a great way to start the day. David at breakfast is an asset to this lovely City centre hotel.

One night stay, June 2021. Rooms booked: 1x Roomy and 1x Vista Pros: Great location in the heart of Edinburgh Very friendly and welcoming staff at reception Exceptionally clean! Comfortable bed and room Complimentary bar Available Dyson hairdryer and ghd hair straightener! Plenty of storage. Lovely shower and bath Cons: Expired milk (minor issue as we could have asked for a replacement but we did not) No luggage bench Missing cotton pads and cotton buds No towel holder at the sink A bit tricky to fill the kettle with water from the sink Architectural Opinions : Quirky townhouse responding to the local cityscape. Raising the reception to the 7th floor is a great move as it takes the guests straight to the amazing view. It also creates sense of safety. Interesting use of materials: oak, marble and scottish tartan. Very tasteful Scottish experience without going into clichés. Minor bathroom comments: The toilets are too high (not ideal for short people). The tap handles are quirky and look cool but are a bit hard to use. We would definitely go back again!
