We visited the Malmaison for 2 nights over Valentine's weekend this year (2009) and we thought it was a great hotel.
The hotel is situated in Leith which is about a 20 minutes walk from the centre and Princes Street, but a very quick and easy bus ride from the hotel.
Leith has lots of nice bars and restaurants and we enjoyed eating in one of the bars to the left of the hotel. We also had room service in the hotel and it was excellent.
The room was big and rather decadent with great toiletries. The cocktail bar was also very good and the staff were very friendly. The hotel itself was very impressive located right by the waterfront.
We would definately recommend this hotel if you are visiting Edinburgh. Personally, I know Edinburgh very well, and it was lovely to stay somewhere just outside the centre as you get to see a whole new area of the city. Leith is very trendy now and we enjoyed walking near the water. Great shopping also.
- 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
