“Very Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

The hotel was very well furnished and had a really good atmosphere to it! What you would expect from a hotel in the middle of Edinburgh!
Only a few minutes away from Princes Street, but still in a very quiet area.
The rooms are big and modern and nicely put.

Stayed here with my wife saturday 16th February, check in swift & friendly rooms large bright & very clean.Building itself lovley with a fantastic atmosphere. Only small complaint would be road noise might affect the lightest of sleepers. Breakfast in the morning was a little slow but was worth the wait when it arrived.I would have no hessation of staying in this establishment in the future.

Room Tip: road noise an issue if room facing the entrance to the hotel.

Spent one night at this hotel as a treat for my hubbys 's birthday/valentines. Check in was swift and friendly. Our room was upstairs and was very clean and fresh. Got a bit of road noise but that's to be expected in a busy city. Walls are thin, could hear talking and crying baby. This would not stop me staying here again though. Breakfast was very good. Overall, for what we paid it was worth the money.

A great comforting old-fashioned club with nice rooms and even better staff! I got in late, and the receptionist even recommended where to eat, and what to do, how to get around and get to know the city! (And along with other tips about travelling around Europe as she was a traveller too!)
While breakfast service was slightly slow, the food was great - eat till you drop - and the staff was also very helpful when I needed to leave early the last day! Love the place!

Had an enjoyable stay here over the new year break. Very friendly staff who were happy to assist with anything and everything. The breakfast (included) was fantastic - full Scottish breakfast (veggie option available) was delicious.

Clean spacious rooms that were soundproof and heated fine.

Is a bit of a walk up and down a big hill to Princes street - but still very close.

Would definitely stay here again if we came back to Edinburgh.

This is a lovely old-fashioned club with nicely appointed rooms and the best showers I have EVER come across in ANY hotel anywhere.
The two ladies on reception are charming, once you get through their rather military approach to things, and the breakfasts are great - though the service is a bit slow and you have to be persistent about what you want if they are not busy...
Positioned 5 minutes from George Street, 10 mins from Princes Street and in the "New Town" (built 1750-1850). A delightful place to stay.

Having read several reviews about this hotel, we were a little concerned about the location as some we had read were not complimentary about the staff or hotel. On arrival we were welcomed by Natalie on reception who was polite, helpful and courteous. All of the bar staff, waiting staff and housekeeping staff were exactly the same.

The hotel was warm, clean and although we were in the "budget" rooms, found them to be comfortable and clean. All be it, these rooms do not have the best views, at the end of the day we had come to see Edinburgh and the rooms were sufficient.

Breakfast provided a good choice and was served piping hot and by efficient staff. We had snacks in the bar on one lunch time which were of good quality and fairly priced.

All in all, the trip was a success and I would definitely go back to the Royal Scots Club if in Edinburgh again.
