I love the Waverly. It looks like an old rundown hotel but it’s actually very comfortable & clean. The staff is excellent & always welcoming & helpful. The location is fantastic.

Great location, friendly staff and clean. For the price, though, furniture and beds need to be updated. My room had an excellent view of Edinburgh Castle, Scott Monument, and a/c! I would stay again.

Great location, close to train station without being noise. The hotel is very old but that makes it fun with creaky floors super high ceilings and decorations. taff is nice and friendly.

Good 6.0
Good for budget travelers
Hotel is in terrific location and easy to walk to all main Edinburgh sights. Staff was lovely. Hotel is a bit run down and rooms very small and warm. Hard to keep windows open because of urban noise. Recommend if on a budget.
