“Fantastic hotel :)”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Fantastic location, very close to Edinburgh bus station. Allowed to leave luggage to pick up later at no extra cost. The staff went over and above the call of duty to make this a fantastic trip. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend.

We stayed at this hotel from 19 October 2013 to October 22, 2013. I traveled with my 82 years old dad. When we arrived the front desk staff Paul has told us that we could have our request for 2 single beds . We stayed on the 1st floor which was an excellent location for my dad as he could not climb high stairs. Paul helped us with our luggage which was very nice of him. The room is very spacious and clean. The hotel is so closed to the city area and to the Catholic Cathedral which is important to my dad who would not want to miss his Sunday church.

Paul is also so kind to cook us breakfast in the early morning despite his work hours starts from 8 am as we have to go for trip to Lochness. He is so helpful and always cheerful. I realized no matter how good the hotel you stay at.. the staff is so important as they can brighten your day or make your day a nightmare. And Paul brightened our day.

we trully enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh especially at York house hotel.. And will recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Room Tip: choose the 1st floor room facing the street with the bath room inside. Although is a bit noisy at t...

What a fantastic hotel, we were welcomed on arrival. Our room was lovely, on the first floor with great carved wooden furniture. The hotel is really convenient for everything especially the Stand Comedy Club.
Will definitely recommend to others and stay there again. I don't know why there are bad reviews of this place it's a real gem!

As soon as we walked through the front door we were made to feel like top priority. The.service of all the staff was nothing short of perfection and.couldn't fault it in the slightest. Even though check-in wasn't until after 2 they were more than happy to store our bags leaving us bag free to explore the city :)

Breakfast both mornings was delicious with a wide spread of choices to cater everyone's needs. The hostess both mornings couldn't have been more charming making both mornings that slightly easier to bare lol.

With it located directly in the middle of Edinburgh your literally just a short walk away from tonnes of amazing attractions.

I strongly recommend staying here and we will definitely be using York House Hotel every time we are in Edinburgh over night.

Edinburgh is a very beautiful city. It took us a long time to locate the hotel as most hotels look like a house from outside and all buildings are alike. The person on the reception desk was very rude. The rooms are very big and well furnished. We took the family room - much bigger then most places. Only problem of taking the luggage upstairs.

The hotel is in a great location - an easy walk from Waverley Rail Station and next door to the bus station. We stayed for just one night en route to the far north of Scotland. The staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful.Free Wi-Fi, beds comfortable and bathroom clean. I agree with other reviewers that it could do with some updating, however, we were on the ground floor and did not really notice a lot of noise. We were there during the Fringe festival and this hotel is ideally situated if you want to take in some of the activities. One comedy venue was opposite and another couple were only a few doors away. If you stay here don't expect luxury but if you are looking for a place to stay near the city centre, this should be fine for you. Breakfast was also excellent - full Scottish

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are good as there is no lift

we have just returned from an over night stay, 2 adults,1 child of 12. we arrived to drop off our bags early, only to find a "hotel" that looked like a run down hostel. Locked, mucky door, not very welcoming, with a key pad. A Full overflowing box of fag ends, & windows that haven't been cleaned in months, curtains closed. The staff were happy for us to leave our bags, but told to come back after 2pm. Our room was on the 3rd floor, up the "car park" stairs. Room was large, very dated, looked over the NCP car park! lots of car alarms going off. curtains that didn't fit the window. Lots of noise from road works due to the tram way, but not the hotels fault. No shampoo :-( crap electric shower. However clean sheets, but terrible nasty pillows. Not a room that you would want to spend time in. Staff very nice, breakfast o.k just what you pay for.

Room Tip: go else where!
