We arrived tired from driving from Wales and were told room was not ready, but were given
complimentary soft drinks at the bar. When we were shown our room it faced the not very nice
side of the hotel- a real letdown since the room was very nice. We were upgraded to a fantastic
front facing room, but told it would only be for a day. We stayed 2 nights in that room and checked out of our own accord. The hotel is very hip and at times the staff tries too hard to be hip which ends up in them being aloof. If you go, make sure to explore the restaurants in the area- really good (Mimi's down the street for breakfast /Fischer"s across the the street for fine seafood. They just need to stop trying to be so hip and be more attentive to their guests. Nice products in the bathroom. Location is far from city center..
- 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
