Reviewed 22 March 2014

This was a great hotel for our overnight stay in Edinburgh. Close to all the shops and restaurants.
Room was very spacious and clean. Service was great.
Only negatives would be that the electricity in the room tripped as soon as we entered. But this was fixed instantly and had no problem with it at all for the remainder of the stay.
Breakfast was great the next morning. A decent selection of food and menu items. I was not fond of the coffee at all, I'm guessing it had been sitting in the flask a while as we were last down that morning.

Definitely a hotel I would stay at again when next visiting Edinburgh.

Me and my husband stayed here on our honeymoon, and im glad we did. The room was great, the staff friendly and the breakfast was beautiful. The deco was very modern and loved the bar area. Will defiantly be returning on our next visit to edinburgh.

Stayed here for 2 nights this last weekend - fabulous location for exploring Edinburgh. The room we were given was lovely and spacious with the best views (room 3605). My parents had a room a floor above and again that was lovely and clean with the same views.
The bar and reception areas are well looked after with professional and friendly staff. Would go back if in Edinburgh again - highly recommended.

Room Tip: upgrade to room 3605 for a treat!

Clean and well-presented hotel in the heart of the city. We stayed here for 2 nights and could not fault the cleanliness of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. Our room was small but well turned out and more than adequate as a base to sight see.The main attraction of this hotel is the location and how cental it is to most parts of town and amenities.

If you pre-book breakfast you get a £5 reduction on the rate but I am sad to say you're not missing out on much. Breakfast was pre-heated and not very appetising.

Room Tip: We stayed in the basement the rooms are smaller here so if you want a bigger room pay more!

Dear Buzzie25,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay, however I’m disappointed to read that you found our breakfast to be “not very appetising”. Our breakfasts are usually very popular and we feel that there is enough of a selection to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements. On busy mornings we do put the ‘Full Scottish Breakfast” on a hot buffet, which is regularly maintained by the chef and waiting team. In addition there is a wide selection of dishes that can be ordered, freshly made, from the kitchen. I’d be delighted to hear from you if you have any suggestions that may help us to improve our offering, please contact me directly at the hotel should you wish to do so.
Regards,
Stephen

We stayed here for two nights early march. We had a huge room on the second floor with two double beds and a very big bathroom that had an awesome big shower cabin with rain shower and a big, deep bath to enjoy at the end of the day. The room was clean, the front desk staff very helpful and the breakfast buffet had everything we needed, you can even order extra things that the kitchen will then prepare fresh for you. The location of The Place is excellent as well; walking distance from all the good sites, including Edinburgh castle. I would definitely choose this hotel again if I come back to Edinburgh and I will recommend it to anyone.

Spent 2 nights here in Feb 14. The hotel was within easy walking distance of main tourist areas. The staff were polite, courteous and helpful. the bar was very relaxing and reasonably priced. Bedroom was a tad small but as we were out most of day and only really there to sleep it was not an issue. Only had breakfast on one day and it was a nice selection. Will stay there next time I am in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: we had city room which was down stairs as a lot of rooms seemed to be. Windows were dormas. I would...
