The hotel was very nice. It's close to many buses and a tram stop so if you're worried about having to walk over a mile into town, you have options. I requested champagne and flowers in our room to celebrate our anniversary and both were very nice. The staff was very friendly and helped us connect to the internet when we had difficulty. The room was well appointed and modern, as well as the bathroom. The ONLY issues we had were 1. our king bed was just two poorly joined twin mattresses and 2. on our first night we found a flea in our bed. We don't live with pets, so we didn't bring it along. It was a little gross, but easily fixable and, like I said, everything what was great.
This is a nice clean decent place. It's not the kind of place that is so plush you want to hang out in your room, but it's comfortable for a stay. It is very close to the Haymarket train stop and near the tram and bus stops as well. It is however a bit of a walk to Princess Street and some of the other nicer shopping areas. I was able to get around on foot without any issues, but if you can't walk more than a mile comfortably then a taxi, which is easy to get, is key. The staff is quite friendly as well.
If you are happy to stay in a hotel that has not completely arrived in the 21st Century you will be more than happy here. The furniture throughout may be dated but is of fantastic quality showing good craftsmanship and in pretty good condition for its age. The room had a flatscreen tv and wifi is available in the lounge area. Our room was huge with a modern ensuite and spotlessly clean. Complimentary soap etc and tea and coffee with shortbread was provided in the room. The light breakfast was perfect with a selection of cereals, croissants, cakes, fruit, coffee and a selection of teas. All the staff we met on our two night stay were friendly and welcoming. Our room was so quiet, if we didn't know better we would have thought we were the only guests in the hotel. Excellent value for money if compared with other hotels in the area.
Great location for people using the train system.
Was assigned a very small room overlooking the road. I asked the property manager, Phil, if it was possible to move to a quite location as I was staying for 6 nights and am a very light sleeper. Phil was very accommodating and was able to move us around during the week to quieter rooms. I really appreciated his understanding and response.
Home to one of Edinburgh's busiest railway stations, Haymarket is situated in the western part of Scotland's capital city. A war memorial stands at the crossroads in the heart of Haymarket, dedicated to players of Heart of Midlothian F.C., who died in both World Wars. The Water of Leith Walkway is nearby for those wanting to view the beautiful city from the riverside.
