Great Location..Great Value!
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was a perfect location, I would definitely stay here again. The only negative is that it's a flight of stairs up to the main lobby. The staff will be happy to bring your bags up the stairs for you...elevator up to the rooms. Shops, restaurants and sightseeing all within a short walk. It's a very nice hotel and a good value for the money. I highly recommend the Old Waverly Hotel!

Close to the Waverley Train station
I chose this hotel due its relatively reasonable cost and walkability from the Waverley train station. It fulfilled these requirements. The beds were non-supportive--like the ones in you Aunt Matilda's guest room....but not horrible. Our main gripe sounds like Americans who just cannot get a grip that the U.S. enthrallment with ice is not shared abroad, but it is not. We needed ice to keep a prescription medication cold, and we were told this would be "no problem." It was a problem! Once I gave the hotel staff an ice bucket (theirs) and in return, about an hour later, I received half a glass of ice. This is a bigger hassle than need be; the hotel was notified of our needs and agreed. In a hotel with the self-service ice machine, it would have been no problem. I took off a star for this problems because it was not optional for me to forego ice--as though my drinks weren't cold enough or something; I needed this ice for my very costly medication to remain safe.

Weekend in Edinburgh
This was a little over what we wanted to spend, but it was more central than the other places we were looking at. The hotel is definitely old as the name already states. So I was fine with that and the squeaky floor that others had commented on. The rooms are small, but the bed was comfy for the most part. The bathroom was okay. The neighborhood it was in was definitely worth it. We walked everywhere from there. You can definitely take buses everywhere, which are pretty much outside the hotel door.

Lovely
The Old Waverley Hotel was a wonderful stay. Excellent location next to the train station, courteous staff. The room was clean and pretty spacious. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a nice size (I was staying in a single). The view from the window made the short stay wonderful, beautiful view of the Scott Monument and the Old Town, drank my tea every morning at the window watching the city come to life. Would definitely recommend.
