Week in Edinburgh

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: Location within Edinburgh.
Cons: Hot water service in rooms. Housekeeping and provisions within the kitchenette. Some of the staff but others were good.
Initial experience with the hot water system was my wife nearly got scalded . Placed call for maintenance to help with adjustment and initially advised he would be at our room in 30 min. He didn't turn up so we rang reception again only to be told he had gone home for the day. Maintenance arrived only to advise that the hot water setting was on the highest setting. During our week stay, water pressure and temperature were on going issues. Rubbish bin in kitchen was not emptied during our week stay had to request house keeping for fresh towels after 3 days as they were not changed daily. Beds uncomfortable, hard pillows.

Outstanding last-minute booking

Posted 18-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
I needed a room for a last-minute business trip to Edinburgh which, during Festival period, I expected to be a very difficult task. Thankfully, Blue Rainbow had an apartment available and at an excellent price. And what a lovely place, very close to St Andrew square but with little noise from the busy Queen St. I shall definitely check their availability for any future trips to Edinburgh.

Central Location and Good Value

Posted 13-Aug-2014
Pros: location, amenities, staff, value
We only spent two nights in Edinburgh, but were glad we chose this place. The rooms are actually small apartments, complete with a separate kitchenette and lounge area. There is even free laundry facilities on-site. The hotel is centrally located, so we found it easy to walk to all attractions.

Not cozy but great location

Posted 17-Jul-2014
Be sure you have a debit/credit card even if you book with paypal, we had a big headache trying to sort this when we arrived! The manager is great and half of the staff are nice but there are a couple bad eggs. As for the apartments, you dont get the food stock they claim, just milk tea and coffee selections and some beer/wine which you can purchase at check out. The location is fantastic and the shower pressure will clean you right up! However, there are no such blue rainbow premium mattresses as they claim, the mattress may as well be a boxspring! Couches are similar. Kitchen cooking area is great, blackout curtains do the job. Everything was clean and lots of space. The walls feel very empty which isnt nice in a creepy 200 year old building...

Close to City centre

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Great room but the creaky floorboards were annoying especially in the middle of the night.
