The Balmoral Hotel is a landmark building in Edinburgh, centrally located and fabulous for "stepping out" for shopping, theatre, socialising etc.
Unfortunately I found it soulless though!! Hotel has hundreds of rooms that vary in size and decor. I looked at 3 rooms before i decided on the room I felt was satisfactory for the money paid. I would reccommend an internal room as the ouyside rooms are noisy with street traffic.
I felt the SPA was an afterthought with small "cold" pool and a bit claustrophobic as it is in the basement - I could not get a Spa treatment so cannot comment on that facility.
Overall it is a lovely hotel, I would stay again for convenience but I do think there are lots of other hotels in Edinburgh which have far more warmth and fun!
