As I come from Dubai, I came to discover that if any hotel deserves a 7 star rating is the Balmoral hotel in Edinburgh. From location to service and amenities, this hotel is a second to none. We were welcomed wit a tour of the hotel and it's history (120 years old). We were ( wife and daughter) accompanied to our room wish was huge. The baby got a special welcome where she had a toy box, sanitizer, water heater, cot, her own food menu and some tasty cookies, unfortunately and due to weather change, our baby fell ill and we called the reception for assistance. We didn't have to worry about a single thing, the hotel took an appointment for us with the hospital, they arranged for transport and walked with us through the whole process. A very family friendly hotel which did not fail to attend to any request. More than that, the hotel is ideally situated I. The center of Edinburgh (adjacent to the train station) and gives you access to all historical places around the city. We didn't have to take a mean of transportation during the whole stay (4 nights). We believ that this is the best experience we had in a while and I will visit Edinburgh next year just to stay in this hotel.
