Stayed at the Malmaison in Leith in April as we were visiting The Kitchin for dinner. We have a Mal in Aberdeen and was expecting something of a similar class but unfortunately was really disappointed, The hotel needs refurbishing in my opinion, room is no better than any budget chain hotel, nowhere near as good as the Aberdeen hotel. We were also woken up at 4.30 in the morning with the fire alarm going off, obviously these things happen but after assembling outside to await the fire brigade, we were then ushered back to our rooms, just settled back into bed then it went off again, then again and again, obviously a fault with the system and someone was standing next to it, disabling the alarm every time it sounded. We were handed an apology letter on checking out but no explanation and no offer of anything for the inconvenience or disturbance. All in all, the hotel needs some money spent on it and if it wasn''t for the location to the restaurant we were visiting we would not have stayed there. Next time we go to Edinburgh, Malmaison will not be our choice of accommodation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It's the mother of all Malmaison's. The former house of ill-repute now has a reputation that's second to none, and it's also just a short taxi ride away from Waverley Station. Malmaison Edinburgh bides at Leith (as they say up here), just a stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia, but offering far more funky luxury. Yes, when you want exciting hotels in Edinburgh, this is the King, not the castle. Our Edinburgh hotel puts you close to all of Edinburgh's cobbled splendours, incredible shopping and famous galleries. Then it's back to Mal for Scots dining with a twist, a fine selection of single malts and mojitos in the bar and then back to the slinkiest and most spectacular rooms in the Scots capital. ... more less
