“Nice local, place very trendy”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The location is great, the hotel somewhat overpriced. It is more a bar than a hotel as such, hence the service is maybe not what you would expect. The staff was friendly. If you take your breakfast allow for enough time, the service is slow but the quality is good

It's off from the Royal Mile, but a short walk, and the crowds! Plenty to do in and around the hotel. Rooms are huge, and beds comfortable. Don't bring a car because parking is a premium. Staff is great although the girls at reception were captivated with their computers. Had four meals in New Town area, and Tigerlily was one if not the best. I will come back.

lovely. artistic. hippie. fun. rooms are great. shower is big. food is good. loved the bar area and music and service with a gorgeous smile from the ladies at the reception. good for night life if you dont want to go anywhere. attracts elegantly dressed people. even neighbouring buildings have a nice nightlife too. unfortunately, never got to enjoy it. we arrived late and left early. next time i'm in edinburgh i'll stay here.

In Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo the Tigrerlily, in George Street, was an ideal location. George street itself has many interesting shops and restaurants, perhaps a bit more upmarket than Princes Street. Princes Street is however only a few, walking, minutes away. A tram to and from the airport was easy and convenient. The hotel staff were excellent. The hotel was buzzing until the small hours but did not disturb our sleep. The home of innovative cocktails. The food was both good and generous. A problem with the room was dealt with effectively without fuss. A hotel popular with residents and non residents but quiet if you want it.

Spent a night for business at this lovely boutique hotel hotel. Great location, easy access from both train station and the airport. Attentive staff at check in. Huge room (standard), great amenities, chic and fancy and full of gadgets! Most important of all, great mattress and plenty of pillows!

My wife and I spent a lovely couple of days in Edinburgh this weekend staying at Tigerlily on George Street

The hotel is easy to find and while it does not have off street parking there are plenty spaces around ............... BEWARE ...... It costs 3.20 per hour between 8.30 and 6pm and the traffic wardens are VERY efficient

The rooms themselves are first class with more 'extras' than you could ever want. Prices are very reasonable and my favourite was the 'Tigerlily Ipod' what a lovely touch

Staff are excellent in general very attentive without being pushy. Our waiter in the morning was a bit forgetful but these things happen and the manager backup was first class

Food .............. again top notch with plenty vatiety and of a high quality

Round about Tigerlilly is an abundance of great pubs and bars you need never go short of a beer / coffee / coctail..whatever takes your fancy

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the LuLu nightclub .the beats can reverberate
