Stayed here for two nights, the hotel and our room was good, until the contractors started work in the morning on rooms a few doors down, but our biggest disappointment was at breakfast - we only booked the buffet breakfast but when we got there, no bowels for cereal so people were using cups, no milk, no rolls or bread...

Excellent location. Staff very pleasant and all chatted away to us and were freindly but professional. Food in restuarant was very good. Within walking distance of Edinburgh city centre ( although not the 30 mins we thought ) probably nearer 45 minutes but a pleasant walk. Enjoyed walking round leith close to royal yacht and ocean terminal shopping centre. Our... More

Was slightly disappointed with this hotel. The room was in need of redecoration, wardrobe doors were scratched around the hand, mirror in the bathroom was chipped. Storage consisted of a wardrobe and nothing else so there were no drawers for putting tops, underwear etc in. The floorboards of the room above were incredibly creaky and unfortunately this kept us awake... More

Quite pricey for what it is but I guess that's just the average price you'll pay in Edinburgh area. Room was nice but nothing special compared to other well known chains of hotels. Breakfast was 'fine'. Continental breakfast provided a selection of toast, cereal, pastries and fruit. The hotel is in a great location, lots of lovely pubs and restaurants... More

Gorgeous hotel and excellent service, would definitely recommend Malmaison to anyone. Could not fault anything. Great location, just a short walk away from plenty of restaurants, and five minutes walk away from Ocean View shopping centre

Staff were pleasant and the place was kept clean. They made an error with the booking but made the necessary changes. Anyone can make an error and they duly made amends. However, rating the food alone I wouldn't go back. Bland, tough and boring.

Booked a room for a night in Edinburgh for our wedding anniversary. Everything about it was great apart from a problem with a noise that kept waking us up at night. It was similar to a bathroom fan or something, but louder, and when I went out of the room to find out where it was coming from could hear... More

Enjoyed a 2 night stay in the hotel with dinner deal the first night and a breakfast and bubbles break for the 2nd night. The room was large and spacious and well equipped, if a little dark. We could have benefited from a stand alone lamp in the seating area as you could not see to read in that area.... More

We took a great deal of care and a lot of research to find a hotel to stay in near Edinburgh. Finding the right balance of cost versus quality was not easy but we were very pleased with our choice. Clean, very comfortable, excellent cooked breakfast. Deciphering the various deals and room rates to find the right one for us... More

Having stayed at other Mal Maison hotels, I was intrigued to see how this one compared. All was excellent, reception staff very good and helpful but generally quite expensive food and overpriced drinks. The restaurant had awful inappropriate music for a relaxing romantic birthday meal and the staff were obviously overworked and underpaid with a very stern front of house... More

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
