Macdonald Holyrood Hotel, Edinburgh
Excellent4.0 / 5
Perfect for active people
Front desk was great! Only problem for retirees is location of hotel is at the bottom of the Royal Mile and the trek up to all the activities during the Edinburgh Festival is challenging. Quiet at night even at the bar. Otherwise no real complaints.

Good3.0 / 5
Adequate but nothing special
The hotel is adequate, but pretty vanilla - nothing really impressed me. Room was clean and pretty basic. The AC did not work well and the room was very stuffy and warm. If it wasn't for the convenient location, probably would not consider staying there in the future.

Great Edinburgh Hotel!!
A+++We really enjoyed our stay! The staff was profradioman and friendly. The run was large, modern and clean. The BEST part of this hotel was the concierge service; specifically Frank. He was amazing and very very helpful. The hotel is also a short walk to the "grass market" which is a strip of restaurants, pubs & shops. Very convenient! Would totally recommend!

Outstanding5.0 / 5
The only problem was no air conditioning. The rooms were warm and a little stuffy, since in the center of the city no ventilation was available for cooling the room.
