Fantastic location - next to Royal Mile and only 5 mins walk to the Castle and 10 mins to Princes Street ... Although beware of the stairs from Waverley Station area back up to the hotel - a real aerobic exercise!!! No parking at the hotel but they will validate your parking ticket for a 10-15% discount if parking behind Waverley Station. We had an excellent room at the top of the hotel with breathtaking views over the city and River Forth.
Having said all that, the rooms could use some maintenance - the bedroom overall was very comfortable but the mattress sagged at the edges. Similarly the sitting room was quite comfortable but the sofa sagged in the middle. The bathroom was clean and well appointed but little things like the shower drain clogging up, the shower shelf falling off, and the toilet holder falling off made for a disappointing experience. WiFi service was frustratingly patchy.
Nevertheless, the location, general comfort of the hotel, and having the freedom to cook for ourselves when we wanted still makes this one of our favored hotels when we visit Edinburgh.More
