  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Scotsman wins not only on location but also for heritage and ambience. The hotel is a great repurpose of an Edinburgh landmark and you can enjoy this while being so close to the Royal Mike and the train station. While the lobby is small and lacks grandeur, my room was very spacious and well appointed with modern features and very attractive decor as seen on hotel pics on orbitz.

    The Scotsman is a beautiful hotel with great access to the old city or Edinburgh. Right next to the train station and within walking distance of so many great things. I will definitely be back in Edinburgh soon and will for sure be staying at the Scotsman again.
