    The best

    This is my favorite in the city and the best Kimpton I have been too. Every aspect is perfect. Excellent massage. The best is being able to keep up with your fitness routine whilst traveling. Staff is exceptional.

    Absolutely love this hotel located in a beautiful part of Edinburgh. The lobby and main areas are stunning, and the rooms, especially in the Georgian part of the hotel, are extremely charming and comfortable. Will definitely be back!

    One of my best hotel stays anywhere. Wonderful hotel with tons of character, great staff, very comfortable bed. Outstanding fitness room for a relatively small hotel. Breakfast was really great too. My only complaint is that the coffee (both espresso and filter) was sub-par, but there are lots of places to get good coffee in the neighborhood. Ate dinner at Baba, which is not to be missed.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    I love the Kimpton hotel chain. They are super dog friendly. Actually, they aren't just dog friendly, they are dog welcoming. The staff are delightful - super nice and very helpful. Loved the decor of this hotel, the location was superb. I also loved that there were snacks and water that were complimentary! I really dislike the charging for water in particular so this was a wonderful little discovery. The only downside for me was the bed. It just wasn't comfortable for me. I love a soft cushy bed and this one was a bit hard and uncomfortable for me to sleep on.

    Hotel room bathrooms could use an update, as could the hallways. Expected the overall room to be nicer based on reviews and price. Spa/pool is only open certain hours so we weren't able to use it. The lobby area was nice.
