Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

West Midlands, United Kingdom71 contributions65 helpful votes
Well this IS the hotel to stay at for the location! Its so convenient. Soooo close to Edinburgh castle and many other attractions. Lots of unique, independent coffee shops and places to eat nearby. I highly recommend getting the tram from Edinburgh airport and getting off at the Westend stop. That journey cost us £9 return per person and its an open return to the airport which is great. From Westend its about 10 minute walk to the hotel, a bit down Princes Street then up Lothian Road, very straightforward. Checking is from 3pm and we were early so we left our luggage at the hotel and went out for the afternoon. The staff all seemed friendly, professional and polite. The room was adequate, although the bathroom was on the smaller size, it was ok and was cleanish,that could be improved!!! The breakfast choice was very good and you can also order pancakes,waffles, vegan breakfast, eggs your way, porridge all made to order. Choices of hot drinks too. Overall I would stay at this hotel again as it was so convenient for the location. Would recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
Beautiful hotel at the perfect location! The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly. Josh and Inez were incredibly helpful, friendly and gave amazing service in the breakfast Brasserie. We stayed for a week, and my only issues were that the hair dryer was faulty and the water pressure was very low. Be careful getting out of the showers because the tub is very high up and it’s quite the step down to get out. The view from our room was amazing-Edinburgh Castle! I highly recommend this hotel!

We return to the Skybar every so often, as a reminder of the wonderful wedding we had here Nov 2022. The staff are attentive and friendly. Many of the staff remember us from the wedding which makes it even more special. Euan and his team are fab!

I would avoid this hotel - it ruined our whole trip and the hotel refused to do anything about it - we are now not getting a reply. Deapire being told the rooms were not ready and were bejng cleaned, it aas obvious they were not cleaned, or cleaned very badly. They were dusty, had bodily hairs all over inc on thr bed and in thr bathroom and on handles and toenails by the bed. It is not acceptable. We were offered another room which was also dusty and had hair on the bed. Not what I'd expect from a hilton and won't be coming back again. Basic cleanliness was not there. I recommend you stay in a different hotel.

I cannot fault this hotel, excellent service from the moment I booked. I had to move around dates regarding bookings and the staff went above and beyond to facilitate me. The location is perfect for everything you want or need to do in Edinburgh. Hotel was so clean, rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfy. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and the free hot cookies made my stay. I cant wait to return here again soon.

Just arrived back from a 2 night stay at this hotel. Room was ready on arrival and was very nice. We had a King Suite (room 214) with a view of the Castle, great room and very quiet at night! 2 TVs, lots of space, great bathroom and looked newly refurbished. Hot cookies on arrival with a very warm welcome. We had dinner included but only did this one night as there were so many nice places to eat in the city, breakfast really good 10 out of 10. Will definitely stay again, pity the Sky Bar was closed, but there’s certainly enough bars in the city to keep me busy…
