Edinburgh Capital Hotel
Ranked #93 of 150 Hotels in Edinburgh
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We have always stayed in the centre of Edinburgh when up for Rugby matches but tried this hotel for a change. We were pleasantly surprised. The recently refurbished reception and bar areas were very modern and welcoming. The rooms are fine if not up to the standard of the public areas. Town is a 15 min bus ride away (£1.50 single)or £12 in a taxi. Overall really quiet (apart from the odd rumble from the airport) and free car parking is a real bonus in Edinburgh.

We stayed here with our family as part of our city break in Edinburgh and were very happy with the hotel, its facilities and all the staff members. It's a little bit outside of the city centre, but the bus that leaves from outside the hotel takes you there in 15 minutes (and it's much easier parking your car here than with a central hotel). The hotel is very handy for the airport. The rooms were a good size, the leisure facilities were great (although the pool can get quite crowded in the morning) and the hotel restaurant was lovely. The staff in the restaurant were particularly friendly, and the food there was delicious.

we stayed at the Capital Hotel Edinburgh for 4 nights a family of 4, mum, dad and two teenage boys, the hotel was really lovely, we had a great family room (room 200) with plenty of space for us all, two Tv's one for us and one for the boys, the leisure facility was fantastic, our boys loved the pool, breakfast was great and we ate one night at the hotel which was very good, and also we were allowed to have a takeaway delivered from Annies chinese down the road, which was a great inexpensive option on one evening, the whole feel of the hotel was smart, relaxed and friendly, all the staff were excellent, friendly, efficient and seemed like they loved working at the capital
the only thing that would improve the room (and it's only a very small thing) is some nice curtains on the bathroom window for purely cosmetic reasons, they looked a bit clinical without curtains
although the capital is a little way out from the centre of edinburgh the bus service (No 26) Lothian buses whas fantastic being every 10 mins or so, and the bus stop was just around the corner from the hotel which was a real boon and change from using the car, we hadnt used the bus for many years and it was great fun hopping on and off (top tip buy the family saver ticket for £7.50 and you can use it all day/eve anywhere that lothian buses go) which we left at home, we visited edinburgh zoo which was absolutely delightful and the city was beautiful and what we saw was clean and metropolitan
to sum up we would definately recommend the Capital Hotel and would return again

Room Tip: family room (200) was a fab size, plenty of room for mum dad and two teenage boys

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel this week and have nothing but good words about the place. Our room was on the second floor and was lovely, clean and spacious. There was plenty of light from the windows and ampules amount of room for all our belongings. We found reception very helpful when asking staff about transport (taxi and buses) and about eating in the hotels restaurant. We ate in the restaurant twice ( once for breakfast and a two course evening meal) both were fantastic. Everything made that bit easier by being able to charge everything to our room and settling later. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Edinburgh.

Stopped at this hotel from the 18th to 23rd of February 2014. All I can say is what a fantastic hotel. As the hotel was t expensive I wasn't expecting anything as near as this hotel. It was very clean and had a big room. The staff were very nice and friendly the restaurant had lovely food and the bar had a nice atmosphere. The location is a bit away from the center but there is basically a bus stop two minutes away from the hotel that you can catch many different buses to anywhere you want to go in the city.
