Stayed at the Rutland Hotel a couple of nights on a business trip. It was a mistake. The positives: small hotel of 12 rooms, well located in the centre of Edinburgh. Quiet. Good bed and originally decorated rooms. Kind staff. The negatives: Staff's good will does not replace plain professionalism; light humidity smell in room #4; windows do not open (and the worst is being told that it is for my security, come on, you're not Hilton so avoid those ridiculous remarks); no full breakfast before 8am, that is just incredible. They offered an in-room alternative at 7am but coffee was served 15 minutes after the toasts. I have seen (smelly) breakfast food trays in the corridors at 10pm, 12 or 14 hours after being eaten: nobody would think of removing them. Free WiFi is good but why do I need to re-login every 20 minutes on each device with an awfully complex password? Conclusion: I might stay again but only on a leisure, not a business trip.
