I stayed at The Rutland last weekend with my Mum. It was a trip booked a while back and I chose the hotel based on the reviews I had read on TripAdvisor.
The hotel entrance is not clearly marked and we ended up finding our way via the bar....once we found reception, check in was quick and easy. Head to the Waldorf Astoria side of the The Rutland to find the hotel entrance.
Our room was nice and well decorated. The bed was large and comfortable, but the temperature was way too warm and the windows didn't open. The TV only had 4 channels, and two of them were unwatchable due to the pixellation of the digital signal. Unfortunately this just wasn't what I was expecting for the cost per night. I complained about both issues, and whilst the air con issue was addressed after chasing twice, the TV issue remained the same. Whilst I didn't want to sit and watch TV all weekend, having to choose between BBC1 and BBC 2 did seem a very limited!
In hindsight, I probably wouldn't stay at The Rutland again, because although the location is fantastic, I think there are plenty of other hotels offering better value for money.
As a side note, the roadworks in Edinburgh currently are a nightmare! They obviously need to be completed in order to get the trams in place, but it looks a mess!!
