A mixed bag
Great location. Excellent breakfasts. Very helpful staff. Spectacular view. Room borders on shabby, was hot. Only one available outlet, which was insufficient for charging multiple devices. And Wifi was almost nonexistent in the room, especially in the evening. When we called, we were told twice they were rebooting the router, or, well, maybe too many people are online. This is unacceptable in a hotel of this stature in Edinburgh.

Great Location
Excellent location, easy 10 minute walk to the Royal Mile and day-tour starts. Hotel room was a bit old (it had separate hot and cold water taps) and worn, but comfortable. Service at the front desk and restaurant (I only had breakfast) was friendly and excellent.

Location was perfect!!
Trip was Great! Location was perfect across from Princes Garden Park, train station, and Bus stops. Room was a little smaller than we are use to and no Air conditioning which wasn’t a factor for us weather was cool.

Booked Mercure because of inhouse bar and restaurant. Both were empty, due to in-progress remodeling. Breakfast was good. Question about hotel via e-mail went unanswered.Nice view of a fire escape.
