Edinburgh respite
The hotel has the feeling of old world elegance. Large rooms, comfortable beds and lovely decor. Would stay again and would highly recommend.

Great hotel. Our delux queen room was rather small though. Consider upgrade.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Good Hotel
We actually stayed at the Caledonian twice on this trip, first for five nights and then for two more nights when we came back from Inverness. The first room, on the fifth floor, was larger, although not very large, and it was easy to move around in. The bathroom was spacious, with lots of space on the sink counter to lay out our toiletries. The second room, on the "E" floor (the floor above the ground floor)was somewhat cramped. Curiously, it had three chairs, while the larger fifth-floor room had only two. The second bathroom was also smaller, although it still had a spacious countertop around the sink. Both rooms were well furnished and appointed, although not really luxurious. Contrary to some other reviews, the air conditioning worked well, on days that were warmer than usual for Edinburgh. The WiFi was more problematical, since the internet connection was frequently interrupted. The staff was generally responsive, although requests (for an additional luggage rack and additional drinking glasses) sometimes had to be made more than once. A big plus was the generous buffet breakfast, which was included in the base price of the room when we booked on Hotels.com. The location, on the border between Old Town and New Town, was excellent. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay.

Old hotel just re-badged as 'Waldorf'
was instantly treated like as second class guest due to booking via third party. The room was the smallest we have ever stayed in with car park view.
