Couldn't ask for a better location in Edinburgh. We were in room 203. Tall windows were perfect for a view of the Balmoral Hotel, the Castle and the old town. Just perfect. The room had been renovated and was very modern with a steam punk theme. Loved it.

The Royal British, Princes Street was a good hotel, in an amazing location! Located directly across from Waverley Train station, it couldn't be easier to get to. It was also down the street from the lovely Princes Street Gardens, with amazing views of old town, near some good food options in new town, and just a jaunt across the bridge to get to old town. Our room was lovely! A nice bathroom, clean, and the ambience in general was quite nice. The only negative (and quite a big one, I might add), was the fact that there was MAJOR construction and renovations going on all around us. The fact that the hotel was undergoing major renovations that had drills running at 7am through 8-9pm every day, and construction workers shouting to one another down the corridors. Given this, we were quite disturbed while trying to sleep in our holiday, or even just coming back at the end of a long day. We had no peace and quiet! I am quite upset that the didn't notify us about this ahead of time, as I would have probably cancelled my reservation and booked a quieter place. I hope that this hotel learns to treat their potential customers with a bit more care, in the future.

I guess the room was newly renovated but the furnishings are in dire need of replacement. The bed was creaking. No air conditioning- cannot open windows. Although on the plus side, I enjoyed the bathroom. Linens are clean. Room service is very good. Location -excellent. Requested for early check in but was not accommodated, but they held my luggage for me until we officially checked in at 3pm. Internet was provided as well

Beautiful Hotel in Edinburgh.
