Perfect location

Posted 23-Aug-2015
Pros: Proximity to the center city.
Cons: Parking and include breakfast.
Location: Perfect location to all of the historic sites in the city.
Fraser Suites is the ideal location to access the Royal Mile. The staff was very accommodating. The hotel does not have parking which during the Fringe Festival proved very challenging. Train station is close however with a large car park. Breakfast is not included which is a minus. The room was very comfortable with a large modern bath. Very handsome hotel . Value for the price.

City Centre next to Royal Mile

Posted 19-Aug-2015
Pros: Near the action
Cons: Expensive for room size. But maybe some Classic rooms are bigger?
Location: Excellent location for Tattoo and Ed Fringe venues.
Serviced apartment hotel a few yards on St Giles from central Royal Mile. Good quality if slightly small room well equipped for self catering with a contemporary bright bathroom including bath.

Beautiful hotel and convenient location.

Posted 17-Aug-2015
Pros: Location, customer service, and cleanliness
Location: Very close to shopping, churches, and historical buildings
Really enjoyed my stay at the Fraser Suites. Great downtown location, but still a peaceful night's sleep. Customer service at the hotel was amazing! Clean well appointed room. I would stay at this hotel again.

Best Night of the Trip!!

Excellent location right on the royal mile..just a 5 minute walk to Edinburgh castle. This was great for us since we were attending the military tattoo. Would stay here again in a heart beat....could be a little more affordable but considering the time of year in Scotland with all the festivals not bad.

Great location

Posted 14-Aug-2015
Charming property so conveniently located--walking distance to Edinburgh Castle. While our room was not large, it managed to include small kitchen features for those staying longer. Main downside for us was lack of parking. Staff were incredibly patient directing us to a parking lot, especially complicated by street closures during the festival.

It's the little things

Posted 08-Aug-2015
Cons: They really need to review there policy regarding replacement of consumables, but for me I am a firm believer in first impressions last.
The hotel is very centrally located on the Royal Mile. The room was of the expected standard for a 4 star hotel. Like many hotels today the queen bed was two singles pushed together with an obvious gap in the middle. The bar that joins the two bases was broken and thus there was a little separation of the two mattresses. There were sufficient electrical outlets. The wifi was appalling and the wired internet did not function at all; for me this is a very important point, as communication via internet is a fact of modern life and not a luxury, especially if a hotel wishes to be regarded as a 4 star hotel. The breakfast buffet was of an acceptable standard but in comparison the hotels of the same category was lacking. The policy regarding the replacement of consumables is unbelievable as we found out when we returned from our first full day’s excursion, my girlfriend was eager to shower before we headed out to dinner. It was at the point that she was about to enter the shower that she realised that there was no shampoo, conditioner or body gel. When I called down to reception I was informed that the policy of the hotel was not to replace any consumable unless the guest specifically requested a replacement. This policy was later confirmed by an other receptionist and I was informed that I could not speak to a manager as there wasn’t a manager on duty. The toiletries were replaced quickly, as were the two sachets of coffee that we had used in the morning.

Excellent hotel in an unbeatable location

Front desk staff was extremely courteous and helpful to me. Hotel room was very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring Old Town Edinburgh. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and associates.

Good location and spacious room

Posted 04-Aug-2015
Pros: See above.
Cons: A small amount of black mold around the tub.
Location: See above.
We were greeted and checked in promptly, and our room was spacious but cozy. The hotel is within walking distance of most of the sights in Edinburgh, and even though it is just steps off the Royal Mile, it was mostly quiet at night, except for a few hoots and hollers on Friday and Saturday night. Our room faced the front, so a back room might be quieter. We were not really disturbed. Among the best features were a laundry room with washer and dryer, which we seemed to be the only ones using, and an excellent "continental" breakfast that included fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, and eggs. The breakfast was extra but very reasonable. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return if we go back to Edinburgh.

Hard to beat the location -- right off the Royal Mile and within a few hundred steps of St. Giles Cathedral and a parade of street musicians, off-beat performance art buskers and a sea of fellow tourists from around the world. Walk just a block further, and the tourist traps fade for a more authentic Edinburgh experience. I asked the front desk about a ghost tour. They immediately looked it up on the internet, made the call and handed me the phone so I could book our tickets. No breakfast included, but we were a bit weary of British hotel breakfasts anyway at this point!
