Spent two nights in this hotel, which is different to any we've stayed in before. Luxurious, clean, beautifully decorated bedrooms, (with GHD straighteners and ipods). Extremely clean throughout, and smelled lovely.
The staff were friendly and helpful. In the bar, the mixologist's attention to detail was incredible, and the resulting cocktails were worth the wait.
At just a short walk from Princes Street, this city centre hotel is great for people who love their hotels a little different.
Just wish we'd had a bath instead of a shower as after a long day traversing Edinburgh's hills, a long soak was definitely in order.

Had a great time, smoke room the best, food could be a little better, toilets not the best, to many drunk females, need to be cleaned hourly during busy times. However drinks ate fab, they know how to make you feel special.

Our second stay at Tiger Lily. If you are looking for a great atmosphere, cool vibe and attention to detail this is for you. Premium prices for premium quality. Lovely rooms, cool atmosphere, friendly staff and a memorable experience. We had an amazing seafood platter for brunch on Friday with 5 different fish "expressions" from smoked halibut, through Tuna, Salmon, Prawns and Mackerel. We will be back

Absolutely loved this hotel, we stayed in a suite and it was simply divine, really spacious and stylish and had a bathroom to die for! The shower alone was bigger than my bathroom at home!! The hotel is spotlessly clean and has beautiful decor and furnishings. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful from the minute we arrived and breakfast was served until midday, so we could check out at 11am and then have breakfast. They also offered to keep our luggage for the rest of the day when we checked out. We booked directly with the hotel and got a special deal including dinner and breakfast. My only complaint is that in a room close to us a very loud and raucous party woke us around 3am with people singing and shouting but it stopped after about 15 minutes and I assume hotel management stepped in after complaints from other guests. The bar downstairs is very busy and they serve amazing cocktails, but it is very pricey. For a special treat though, it's perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed at Tigerlily for 2 nights with my boyfriend for a short city break. From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic and very attentive. Our concierge was fantastic especially and had a vast amount of knowledge of bars, restaurants, things to do, etc, Room was huge, brilliantly presented and an overall pleasure to stay in (GHD straighteners a bonus). Great location for both old town and new town. Bar/restaurant is fantastic! Only downside is breakfast is not included.

Tiger Lily is a gem!..Front desk staff hugely helpful on all counts from restaurant recommendations to cultural queries.Our room was large,bright and well laid out.The breakfast,if added on was a bounty,with many options and all well prepared..option of room service at same rate.Lively bar in the evening,chic decor without stuffy and a fantastic location..in town but not in the financial area,loads of shopping nearby as well as a park.
Well done on all counts..would definitely return!
