"Lovely Old Family Home"
We were warmly received by the brother and sister owners of hotel/home which has been in the family for generations. Adria house is historical, beautifully decorated, well-appointed and in an excellent location - we walked to all the historical sights in Edinburgh. It was also walking distance from the airport tram - we never needed a car. The full Scottish breakfast was excellent. I would definitely recommend this gracious hotel.

"Excellent - not for the modern hotel addicted"
Edinburgh for Hogmanay (New Years). Arrived at EDI airport. Into town via Airlink bus service (Tram service now available since last trip). Treked up the hill to the old town - Stay Edinburgh office a bit obscure, but easy to find using directions and a good map. Check-in very cordial and efficient. Treked further up the Royal Mile to Ladys Step Close, then around the back to a turret staircase entrance. Quite a climb up three levels to the room. Apartment was small but had all amenities for a comfortable stay - TV, wifi, refrigerator, microwave, teakettle, washing machine, cooktop, pots, pans, dishware, untensils, etc. Location superb - windows fronting on the Royal Mile and a short walk uphill to the castle. (aside - strong legs required as old town Edinburgh is up and down with few level stretches) Excellent food available everywhere - contrary to preconceptions, haggis is a delicious fare. Many museums and interesting sites and activities within easy(?) walking distance. Prolific shopping available locally and down in new town area. Hogmanay was an excellent and well run celebration akin in many ways to a New Orleans Mardi Gras. Location provided services essential to enjoyment - Royal Mile pub open to 3am, a "chippie" on the Royal Mile open to 4am and a club on the backside of the hill open until 5am. Checkout at 10am, but the office will hold bags until required departure for the airport - plenty of time for last day tourism and shopping. Fantastic stay.

"Great short break"
Myself and girlfriend both had some time off so decided to take off for a few days, where better to go than Edinburgh. At first I couldn't decide between Fraser Suites or the Hotel Du Vin. Having been to Hotel Du Vin before i knew the stay would be good as the standards they hold are fairly high, however I decided to try the Fraser Suites. Arrived fairly late as we drove from the South coast however this wasn't any trouble for the staff. The room was clean, comfortable and felt luxurious. The room was quiet for being so close to the Royal mile, cannot fault it at all. The location is brilliant, just off the Royal Mile and 5 minutes from the castle! Plenty of great restaurants and bars nearby as well. Only downside was not having great parking, you can park outside and drop your bags off however you cannot stay for long. The hotel have a deal with one of the car parks at Waverley station and the price for a few days came to less than one day parking in central Brighton. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

"Perfect stay"
Everything was perfect from the location to the staff (concierge, Paddy, in particular) to the comfort of the room. We were on our honeymoon and were immediately greeted with champagne and chocolates. We had breakfast every morning in the brasserie, which was delicious, and the high tea was the best we've ever had. They have an outstanding gluten free menu available at every meal, and it is just as delicious as the standard menu. We loved everything about the hotel and recommend it to anyone and everyone. Doubt we'll ever stay anywhere else in Edinburgh but The Scotsman again.

"Very good position."
Standard room very small, no booklet showing facilities in the hotel so had to ask or guess timings etc. which was strange. Food was excellent and staff were 1st class. Expensive for the room standard. Air conditioning was not very good our room was cold.

"Excellent hotel in great location, superb staff"
I cannot express enough what a great stay this was. The hotel staff was amazing (great greeting, dinner recommendation, conversation). Stayed on a business trip, but would come back for a family holiday. The pool looked great. The location was great - lots of things to do in the area.

"Does what it says on the tin."
This clean and relatively new hotel at only a ten minute brisk walk from the station makes an ideal home from home for you to explore Edinburgh. It is close to the Grassmarket but appeared to be quiet and sufficiently far away to avoid all the night time shenanigans. Note that at peak times there was a queue for the breakfasts. The pool was a nice distraction but the sauna did not work whilst I was there
