Hotel was in a good location for Edinburgh sights; staff was helpful when asked, but most not overly friendly; rooms were clean; no AC so windows were open all the time letting in flies and VERY noisy bird calls alllllllllllllll night long; no elevator so carried luggage up many stairs. Overall hotel was average.

While I understand it's not the hotel's fault, I wish the website we used to book this property would have warned us there was no AC in the room. The property is within walking distance of the attractions, points of interest, and great restaurants. The staff at the hotel were also very helpful and willing to assist. The hotel will give you a 12 pound discount for the parking right across the roundabout. The area seemed very safe to walk at all times. Also worth saying, there is no elevators. Apart from the hot room, we had a good time and would consider staying again (in winter).

We visited Picardy Place hotel. What a fantastic experience. Clean room, excellent staff, brilliant location and generous amenities. The hotel is just over the road from a complex which includes a number of resteraunt and bars, plus a 10 minute walk from Edinburgh train station. Unfortunately, there were a number of road works going on during our stay, but it didn't really effect our stay and obviously no fault of the hotel/staff!

We have stayed at numerous hotels in Edinburgh over the last 30 years and I am frustrated about what I need to say about this boutique hotel. On the plus side...large well designed rooms, amazing bathroom ( the largest I have ever seen in all our years of travelling), perfect position to see Edinburgh, just across the road from the Playhouse, and restaurants and bars on your doorstep. There were little extras in the room like a back massager and foot spa. The minibar was well stocked and reasonably priced, and the staff were very helpful. The downside ( which was nearly enough for us to leave before checking in), was the overwhelming smell of cooked food at the reception. This was obviously coming from the kitchens so maybe a better extractor system to get rid of the grease smell. Secondly, the carpet going up the stairs was desperately needing cleaned. It gave us a false impression of the qualit

I've stayed here twice now. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The location is super convenient with the tram less than a block away, the movie theater across the street, a great pub down stairs next door.

The staff are always pleasant.

My only knock on the hotel is the windows are single glazed so one side you get street noise and on the other there is a pub.

However, I will definitely be back.

Room tip: The front of the building is quieter than the back. There is no elevator if that is an issue.
