This place has a great location, deep within the warrens of Old Town Edinburgh. The atmosphere of the place is great with the many alleys, or closes of the town. The rooms are surprisingly modern and well-appointed. They are also spacious. The price may give one pause, however, as it is likely to be over $250 per night. Also the sofa beds are not the best in comfort, as the bed-pad is thin and beneath it is only metal springs. But the views are great, the service is very good and the rooms are spacious and enjoyable.
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.
"Good solid city hotel slap bang in the city centre"
We arrived very early and, as we expected, no rooms were available. However, the staff were well prepared for that, took our luggage, checked us in, and told us to try again before the official booking in time. When we came back, our luggage was in the room. We had a comfortable room, a good night's sleep after returning late from the Tattoo, and a decent breakfast, nothing outstanding, but with eager and pleasant staff. No problems at chack-out.
Good location, friendly staff, food service ok. Terrible wifi connection system when it worked. Housekeeping inconsistent. Some towels missing one day, late in the day servicing another, evening turn down service showed up one day and not the others and toilette tank took ages in refilling after flushing. Hotel needs general tightening up on service consistency
We took a cab up to the castle and then walked down the royal mile for shopping. The staff were extremely friendly and pre-booked cabs for us to the castle and the airport. Our room had a nice selection of tea and coffees.
The hotel is a great place for a value for money stay in a good location in the old town area. It's generally quite basic in what it offers but it's none the less very pleasant and more than adequate. The rooms are smallish but nice. with coffee and tea making facilities in the room. The breakfast is excellent. If you are just using your hotel as somewhere to sleep then it's a good choice and excellent value for money.
With narrow, winding streets and alleys, this mediaeval district is a contrast to New Town. Acting as the main artery, the Royal Mile begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Family’s residence. Many tourist attractions are found in Old Town including the National Galleries, Royal Museum, and St. Giles Cathedral.
