We have just returned home following a stay at the Edinburgh City during a visit to the Edinburgh Festival. We had booked a total of 3 rooms for our stay.(two standard and a superior room) for the 5 of us. Each room was on a seperate floor (not a problem) but it did allow us to compare the rooms and types. The two standard rooms were spacious with seating areas and provided a good standard of accomodation. The superior room (on the 4th floor) had been recently decorated but was small (attic room) with little natural light (two small attic windows), no seating area and a lack of water pressure in the bathroom made it impossible to run a full bath. Compared with the two standard rooms it was a disappointment especially as it was a higher rate of room. When staff at reception were approached they stated that a superior room was simply a room that had recently been refurbished but understood our issue with the room and reduced the rate accordingly. We can obviously only comment on the superior room we were allocated but we would advise others who are not satisfied with their superior room to let the hotel know. We found the rest of our stay at this hotel to be very good with pleasant,helpfull and attentive staff. The location of the hotel is within easy walking distance of all the places of interest.
