Posh in Edinburgh
Great hotel, restaurant and bar. Super location for all that Edinburgh has to offer, in walking distance Will hopefully be back one day.
Thomas, us2 night business trip
Poor 2.0
The first room I got no. 404 was a small room with no window, looked liked a jail. After urging the stuff, I got a new room, no. 120. You couldn’t open the window either. I don’t think that the first room is acceptable at all in a 5 stars hotel!!! Definitely not for that price.
Zeev, us4 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Great staff, very small room
The staff was incredible!!! But my room was way too small (no more than 200sf), it is by far the smallest room I’ve ever had at a 5star hotel.

Very Good 8.0
Not quite great.
Lovely old hotel in a great location. We had issues with our TV. Every day for 3 days I called to report it and asked for it to be looked at - nothing was done to fix it. Also, our room, lovely as it was, was located at the back of the hotel on the alley where all the trash cans were. It was so noisy we were awaken by bottles crashing multiple times each night. If you get this location asked to be moved
