An easy walk to the train station. Lovely spacious room with excellent shower, bath linens, and products. Breakfast room was well stocked with a nice variety of choices and excellent coffee. j Staff at reception and the concierge were very friendly and helpful. If I'm fortunate enough to visit Edinburgh again, The Scotsman Hotel will be my hotel of choice.

The room was absolutely beautiful. It was so spacious and lovely and quiet. There are no complaints for this hotel and on returning to edinburgh this would be the hotel we stay at. We have been to the macdonald hotel and waldorf and this wins hands down.

This hotel is in the perfect location! It is a one minute walk from Waverly Station and right in the middle of the Royal Mile. Lots of good shops and restaurants within walking distance. In fact, every major site is within a short walking distance from this hotel. The room was large, clean and quiet and the staff and breakfast were awesome. We will definitely stay in this hotel again!
