Avoid this place
This hotel is very hard to find and not well marked from the street. After checking in at the desk, we were led down multiple hallways, stairs (up and down), through many doors, into other, connected units, until we were led down to the basement to our room. Dark, dingy, sad looking. The bed was uncomfortable. Faucets in the bath were backwards (hot on the right, cold on the left). Pathetic wifi. Cannot recommend. Find someplace else to stay.

I loved this hotel
Fabulous romantic hotel in a quiet residential neighborhood close to Waverly Station and Royal Mile. The ceilings in our top floor room were beautiful. Gorgeous spiral staircases. Great room service. It was like being in a Victorian novel

Modern & Peaceful Edinburgh Hideaway
The Ballantrae Albany really worked out great. Breakfast onsite in the morning but also tons of places along the street nearby. Room was great for a solo traveler. Be advised it can be a bit loud due to the old doors, so you might hear your neighbors in the hall outside but not a big issue. The location was North of all the hot spots in town, but a $5 Uber was simple enough. Only major complaint was the bathroom needed a little attention on fixtures and the toilet seat falling apart. Lastly, the front desk let me store my bag with them after I checked out of the room, so that I could go explore the city waiting on my late afternoon flight—free of charge! Great experience overall.

Good, but with a few snags
Hotel staff were nice and friendly and the hotel is really nice, however, the room I stayed in had no internet whatsoever. I had no service on my phone as it was on a lower floor and the free WiFi did not work at all down there. I don’t know if I was just extremely unlucky with my room location or if the internet just doesn’t reach down into the lower floor. The bed was not very comfortable either, but other than that it’s a perfectly good hotel! Nice area.
