We stayed at the Scotsman for a week in Edinburgh for a combination of studies and leisure. The location is superb, next to the Royal Mile and close to Princes Street. I could easily walk to the university and national archives. We were upgraded to a publisher's suite, which was large and well suited for our long stay. The staff, including Nick the concierge, were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed dinner twice in the Northbridge Brasserie which is in the magnificent refurbished lobby. The menu was a nice modern approach with locally sourced product. The Scotsman was a perfect choice for our stay in Edinburgh.

It was perfect place! The interior was beautifully finished and the location was great. Highly recommand. If i want to give a one tip , take a cab when you off from the station. There are short cut through the stair but for first day i think it would be better take a taxi and take a less steps to enter your apt. enojy your stay!

It was great to receive a room upgrade with view of the castle. Thank you.
However, window was kept open for circulation, exposed us to lots of noise from the street, well into the night.
Bathroom has limited hanging bar or shelf for change of clothes.

Great location close to Holyrood Park, Palace, and Royal Mile. Close to a Tesco Express and a couple of restaurants. I was under-impressed with the hotel room itself, which was a good size but with a sunken mattress and sunken/older couch.

"Comfortable hotel just outside the main city area"
The city is slightly outside of the main city core and away from the main road so doesn't suffer so much from traffic noise. Our arrival at reception was a bit confused as a trainee (or new starter) looked blankly at me as I tried several times to explain I had a booking. We left our bags in the luggage room as we'd arrived early but they weren't there when we got back (and the reception desk was unmanned). They'd actually been taken to our rooms (nice touch) but the manager hadn't been made aware of this. Aside from this, we enjoyed the stay. We were impressed with the room which was spacious, clean and nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed. We tried breakfast on the last day (fairly pricey, although this seems to be standard for hotels now) and the breakfast room was a bit cramped but actually had a good selection of warm food, cereals, yogurts, juices and pastries. We would definitely consider this hotel again for our next stay in Edinburgh.

From the pictures on the Expedia and hotel sites, I thought I was getting a modern room with lots of light. Unfortunately, instead of the room I expected, I got an extremely funky room (in an adjoining building, down several steps from the elevator served floor) with a dark painted (peeling) beam ceiling, a throw back kind of "chaise longue", tiny bedside tables, and an armoire which was small. There was a working desk and a cute old desk which I used to store my folded items. The bathroom was quite modern. The light level was only decent during the sunny hours. At dusk and at night, there was not enough light to read. I asked for another light and received a floor lamp with a 40 watt bulb. The sconces were equally dim, having colored glass shades. There was no safe in the room, and I had to hand over valuables to the front desk to put into their general locked area. There was no receipt offered until I asked for one. The staff were mostly helpful. Leave some extra time if you need a cab as they have to call one for you, though it was fairly quick. The room had normal single glazed windows which did not block the street sounds, esp. the bag piper (bad) who played continuously till 7 pm. The room had no air-conditioning, and because of street noise, an open window was not an option until about midnight.

With narrow, winding streets and alleys, this mediaeval district is a contrast to New Town. Acting as the main artery, the Royal Mile begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Family’s residence. Many tourist attractions are found in Old Town including the National Galleries, Royal Museum, and St. Giles Cathedral.
