"Hostel style hotel"
The price was not bad as we just needed a clean place for a night for a Medical Appointment the next day. Room was large and well appointed complete with a fridge and a large TV with cable. The cleaning crew was a little derilect of duty as when i went to grab a kleenex i glanced behind the TV and noticed that the dust had built up enough that i could very easily have written in it. The rest of the room seemed good although the carpet could have used a cleaning. It was very much like a hostel with a very small front desk in a small lobby that gave you axcess to an elevator that you had to have a room key to get to go beyond the lobby. despite the temp outside being -23 we had to turn the heat right off inorder to get the room to ccol down but id sure rather be to hot than to cold.

"Great priced hotel in mid town"
King Edward Hotel is located in Banff mid town. Shopping and dining are all within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance. Despite its central location, the hotel is very quiet.

Excellent place to stay for the price you pay if you want to be hitting the bars downtown and want a quick walk back to your room. Room was unspectacular but nice enough. For what I paid, I would stay again.

"Coldest night ever, no heat at -20"
We stayed there for one night, it was such a cold night, under -20 degrees and the hit didnt work at all. I called the front desk they came, the maintenance men came, but at the end the heat didnt work, we have been sick for a week after that, not good...... They didnt even appologize or offering us to move to other room

"You get what you pay for, if you don't pay alot"
Rock hard beds, uncomfortable sheets and comforter(ironicly enough), tiny room, but it was cheap and right in the centre of banff ave. all in all you get what you pay for and if youre not spending alot of time in the room anyways then its perfectly fine with no huge issues.

"Maybe it's just us...?"
The hotel itself seems to be a little old, and as my girlfriend and I stepped off the elevator on the second floor, a sense of intense vertigo gripped us. Even when we were in our room, the vertigo and dizziness continued. We knew we were tired from a day of driving, but this was strange. We realized then that the floor was on a bit of an angle, and when we jumped the whole room seemed to move. It was kind of like being in the hold of a ship at sea! Overall our stay was fairly pleasant. 4/5

"Enjoyable"
Staff very pleasant and helpful. Room very small, but acceptable for a one night stay. Windows very good at shutting out street noise. Room comfortable and clean. I was concerned that young rowdies would keep us awake after drinking. Staff told us it wasn't a concern, as they assess customers when they arrive and if they appear to be of the rowdy variety, they are sent over to the hostel with the other more rowdy ones. Comfortable beds. The hotel provides parking for a small cost of around $5.00 and the customer is given an electronic key to access the parkade. However, when checking out, the key is returned to the desk and you have no access to the parkade unless you get your vehicle first and look for a parking spot somewhere else. Street parking in the area is at a premium. Suggest a lockbox be placed where the customer drives out of the parkade to drop off the electronic key after checking out.

"Great location but not much else"
We stayed at the King George hotel for one night in Banff. (Thursday night). The rooms were average at best - sparse finishings (two beds one desk and one chair) no closets - it was dark and dingy. Beds had bed-bug protectors - which did not help put my mind at ease. The rooms we were given faced banff ave - and the rooms had horrible sound proofing. Needless to say - we didnt sleep much. Constantly woken up by the sound of buses (bus stop below the hotel) and drunk people walking around!

"Convenient downtown location"
This was our 4th or 5th time in the Banff area, and we've always stayed/camped outside of Banff. This was going to be a short trip, and we just wanted to be within walking distance from the restaurants. Not the Ritz by any standard, but King Edwards was a great hotel for that purpose, and the staff were all very kind and helpful. Very reasonable rates about $150 a night in the middle of July.

"Very small"
The room was so small! There were no space to move or to put our baggage. We also had two microscopic beds. There were no fridge and no micro-wave. It was so noisy that we couldn't sleep. The hotel has no parking (you need to go to the public parking and walk 5 minutes). It is not a very interesting place to stay.

"Nice location, mediocre hotel.get what you pay for"
-welcomed by new mattresses being hauled in to every room. first thought: bedbugs. Googled bedbugs and the King Eddie...definite bedbug problem in the past. we experienced no bedbug problems, however -blankets sucked. AC was really cold and the blankets were so thin and worn. room got too hot to when we turned off the AC -thin walls. heard everything and everyone day and night -room was never cleaned. away from the room between 9am to 4pm. cleaning cart was outside of room when we got back to the hotel. hotel cleaning staff said that our room was next. it really bothered us because there are only 30ish rooms in the entire building and the hotel didn't seem like it was very busy (stayed during the week). we told her that we didn't have time to wait, as we had dinner reservations for 5. she offered to change our towels. very disappointed in the lack of time management. -had to pay for parking

"Convenient location"
This hotel is located right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants in Banff. Can't beat the location. Sacrifice comfort for the price. Also, noise might be a factor for some. You could easily hear your neighbours even with door closed and tv on. Washrooms need updating, coffee in room was terrible. No microwave in rooms. There's one microwave at the end of hall. Not convenient. Bed was decent but had hard edges. Blanket and linens were the cheap thin kind. But location was the big plus.

The room was neat, clean and comfortable. If luxury is what you are after this might not be the place for you. However for an inexpensive place to stay, the King Edward can't be beat. There is free 12 hour parking in a parkade behind the hotel (a short 2 minute walk from the hotel) and a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. I'd stay here again.

"Great hotel right in the middle of downtown Banff"
When we first walked in, the staff were there to greet us right away and were very helpful with describing the parking - we decided to pay the extra 5$/night for the heated underground parking which was definitely worth it! We parked right outside the hotel and unloaded all of our stuff (snowboards, etc.), and took the secured elevator up to the third floor to our room. It was a perfect size for 2 people, with a decent sized, clean bathroom and one queen bed. We had a flat screen TV with a fair amount of channels - all we wanted to watch was the Olympics occasionally anyways, we were there to adventure, not sit in a hotel room! The mini fridge was great to have, and there was plenty of room for suitcases and snowboarding gear. The room was clean, as was the bed. It was great to be able to open up the window and get fresh air. Being downtown, we heard a lot of noise during the night due to the Dancing Sasquatch bar being right across the street, but with some earplugs it was bearable. We ended up out most nights anyways, and were normally tired after full days in the mountains so we crashed pretty easily! Being right downtown, there were plenty of shops and great restaurants all around us. Every time we entered or left the hotel, the front staff were always smiling at us and asking us about our days. I would definitely stay here again! Our trip was amazing, and the hotel and staff were great. Definitely would recommend!

"Low cost, but can be noisy"
Stayed 2 nights (a Sunday and Monday night). Sound proofing between rooms is decent, but not as much as other hotels. Was woken up the first night at 2am by a large group of drunks who were able to be heard through 2 floors and closed doors. An hour later they were talked to by hotel staff and remained quiet. Second night had no late night noise. Room cleanliness was pretty good, though comforter did not smell as though it had been washed recently had a few holes from cigarette burns (which has been mentioned in previous reviews). Shampoo provided in dispenser lathered worse than a cheap bar of soap, so bringing your own is recommended. Ultimately getting what you pay for; a very cheap stay with an amazing location. Bring ear-plugs and you'll be A-OK! Parking is a FREE parkade behind hotel with 5 hour and 12 hour spaces. This wasn't an issue for my stay as girlfriend and I were out and about on trips during the day.

"Great Service, Hotel needs an update"
Front desk guy was super, answered all my calls, helpful information. Hotel itself is more like a motel/hostel. Good price for what it offers. Location is probably the best thing going for this place, right in the centre of Banff. Also close to the public and FREE Parkade. Only suggestion would be to update the place and get new mattresses cause ours was very uncomfortable. Probably won't stay here next time, I'd pay a little extra for an actual hotel.
