This was our first experience of staying in a Malmaison hotel. We selected it because the alternatives in the immediate area were not much cheaper, and we were only staying for one night. Without being too 'unbritish', our rate for B&B was closer to £100 than £200.
Checking in was straightforward and the receptionist booked us a taxi as requested with no fuss. Our room was on the first floor and towards the end of the corridor. I later observed that this was in an extension to the building; this wasn't a problem for us. Other guests in the 'old building' make reference to a lack of air conditioning and slightly tired rooms. Our air conditioning and all facilities worked perfectly and the room was spacious, with a high ceiling and large comfortable bed.
The area around this Malmaison is really interesting; with a collection of very upmarket restaurants some nice relaxed bars, and within walking distance of all of the developments at Leith docks.
If we could pick up a room at an equivalent price, we'd stay again. It's unlikely that we'd pay the rack rate.
- 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
