Wonderful sue, location & staff.
We stayed here at the beginning & ending of our tour of Scotland. A sumptuous hotel. Wonderfully located on the tram line inNew Town.

Close to the train
Right next to the train which is excellent. We were in a basement room. The room was clean but the shower was not. Ew. We didn't experience bugs like other posters. I would not recommend eating at the restaurant. It was lackluster for the price. If I traveled to Edinburgh again I would consider staying here due to the proximity to the train.

Comfortable, spacious, and convenient
The room was very spacious and comfortable yet still conveniently close to attractions and reasonably priced.

Slightly disappointed
The hotel isn’t bad but I wasn’t impressed with our room for the price we paid. Being December 30 (we only stayed one night) may have impacted that some. We had to be walked to our room...through the bar and through the middle of the restaurant which would’ve been awkward if we came and went during mealtimes. Then we were taken downstairs and through a corridor which felt almost dungeon like. There was a electric box and cleaning closet with the doors left open the whole time. The room was small and had a skylight for a window - you could open and close it so that was a bonus. The bathroom was tiny and the horrendous sounding fan came on with the light so there was no avoiding the noise it made. It was decently arranged so it felt ‘cozy’. The tv, wifi and amenities were ok. The staff was warm and welcoming. They took our bags to our room as we arrived before checkin. We were told there was tram service from the stop directly in front of the hotel to the airport but there wasn’t actually service December 31 in the morning (or the entire day) so we had to take a taxi (20£). The area is good and there’s shopping, a movie theater, and restaurants nearby. Everything else you’d need would be in walking or a short taxi ride distance. I would stay there again but definitely NOT for that price as I’ve stayed in much nicer places for less.

Our stay at The Place
Hotel is very well located to access the Old Town. We liked it a lot, our room was very large and comfortable. The concierge, a gentleman from Cuba (could not catch his name), was amazingly kind and went out of his way to provide tips to see the city well and enjoy the time in Edinburgh. He made the hotel look very good.
