I think this was the fist Malmaison to open and I have to be honest and say it's showing a few wears and tears now. The room I was in was showing it's age with scuff marks on the walls, window latches which weren't working, a stain on the bedsheet and a bad patch up job in the bathroom. Most of these I wouldn't raise if I was staying at another hotel but I'm so used to Malmaison being top notch in everything they do, it was a surprise to see these things. Location is a fair distance from Edinburgh City Centre but Leith is a great area with good seafood restaurants nearby and a nice place just to walk around.
One thing Malmaison never fail on is their breakfasts. Absolutely superb whichever hotel you choose to stay.
All in all, good value for a midweek stay and a good, trouble free stay.
- 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
