“Nice Stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Lovely Hotel superbly located in the centre of Edinburgh. The room was nicely furnished, if a little short on storage space and it took a little while to get used to the giant picture of Billy Connolly over the bed but no complaints at all.
Would normally expect a bit more of an upmarket hotel for the price but understandably and like everywhere else the price had been increased due to the Fringe Festival and we booked just a few months in advance.
There's no parking but we used the Ferrytoll Park and Ride which is a 20 min bus journey away and picks up/drops off just a couple of mins from the hotel.
The cocktail/whisky bar was very nice... and even stocked my favourite :)
Overall a very pleasant stay!

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Compleatly different hotel to stay at than the average hotel. I stayed in the euan McGregor room which was lovely. The tunnocks tea cakes are a nice touch. The breakfasts are really good and fill you up for the day. Also the bar down stairs has some lovely cocktails. And all the staff were lovely

The Ewan McGregor room is one of more requested rooms in the hotel, so I am really glad you enjoyed the décor and most of all your time here (and the Tunnocks teacakes!).

We pride ourselves in delivering great customer service and your fantastic comments will be passed on to all of our staff here.

Once again thank you for your feedback and most of all I hope to welcome you back in the near future,

Haste Ye Back!

Visited Edinburgh for the Fringe and to attend the Tattoo, Angels Share Hotel was a perfect choice. Good location, near train station and to all main attractions and venues. Breakfast is superb and good restaurant at night and lovely bar for nightcap or entertainment. Layout is unusual but makes it unique and a nice change from the chain hotel which are too uniformed. Reception staff esp. James were very helpful and informative giving good advice on places to visit such as what lies beneath which was a fantastic tour, free wifi in the room with good connectivity. Would definately stay there again.

Hotel located in Hope street, in centre of Edinburgh near Charlotte square and George Street:
+ excellent location.
+ friendly staff
+ comfortable but rather small room
+ close to Edinburgh Castle and several museums

- bit expensive for this type of hotel, but it was the Edinburgh International Festival, so prices are raised
- internet not stable and no paying option available

Room Tip: I booked a Deluxe room and this was relatively small, so maybe not a good option to book a standard...

My husband booked this hotel for my birthday treat. We flew to Edinburgh Airport and was met by a prepaid taxi. On arriving at the hotel we went to the reception area and the Receptionist was a Canadian (I think) guy, who was so helpful and went through everything about the hotel and told us he had upgraded our room which was a nice surprise. He then went through a map of Edinburgh and pointed out all the places of interest which was really helpful. The room was a good size along with the en-suite, everything was very clean and well cared for everyday of our stay. The bar area was nice with a ceiling of beautiful crystal chandeliers that gave a lovely ambience to the place. The food in the restaurant was very good along with the a really good breakfast menu. The staff were always polite and courteous. The hotel is situated in a good place to visit lots of the main attractions which were in walking distance.

Room Tip: We were situated on the 4th floor Room 303 which was very quiet and we did not hear any noise except...

Me and my husband stayed for 3 nights for our first wedding anniversary, we got put in to the Ewan McGregor room, the room was clean, bright and stylish, we loved the decor and the bed was extremely comfortable, we had breakfast each morning which came quickly and was delicious.

The hotel is very close to main strip of shops and restaurants and in a prime location for the attractions.

We thought it was a shame that we did not get a little treat for our very first wedding anniversary though as we did mention to the reception.

Many thanks for spending some time to write your lovely review!

Angels Share Hotel is definitely aiming to be comfortable and stylish, so it is lovely to see that you thought that the hotel was both of these! The Ewan McGregor room is proving to be quite the favourite amongst both staff and previous guests.
The breakfast offered at the hotel is certainly delicious with Angels Share using locally sourced products to make it extra special. Your lovely comments will be passed on the Kitchen team!

Booked a night at the Angels Share for a concert in Edinburgh.
Short walk from train station approx 10min just the other end of Princes Street.
Decadent, boutique hôtel. Rooms the most comfy bed ever. Very clean.
Food excellent and staff all very helpful and friendly.
Returned to the hotel at 11pm after concert to find the bar in full swing with live music. Excellent cocktails. Very busy (obviously a popular place) but a good vibe. Doesn't attract the young but people in 30's - 50's.
Wouldn't hesitate in recommending the hotel. Had thought about staying at the Balmoral but having stayed at the Angels share I've changed my mind.
