Definitely not a 5-star experience

Would not recommend Fri 2 May 2014
At best a 4-star hotel. I don't think the room is worth more than $200 per night. It would be way overpriced if that was the price in BP. Although the room was large, it was long and narrow. The lighting was inadequate. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The room and bathroom are very clean, however, the plumbing was a disaster. Every time I tried to adjust the faucet for the bathtub, the shower would come one. Also when I went to open the drain, the entire drain mechanism came off in my hand. They couldn't fix it and I changed rooms where I had the same problem. The staff is very helpful. I found the public spaces like the Peacock room very uninviting.

Would recommend Tue 7 Aug 2012
Stayed here for 1 night with my mam, very friendly and helpful reception staff (Ana was very helpful), also the concierge were very helpful. Room was very nice, few little niggles... Water took forever to go down the shower and we were also close to the lift so was rather noisy at times. We would return to this hotel.

Beautiful Hotel and Great Location

Would recommend Wed 2 May 2012
The hotel is in a PERFECT location. It is a short walk to the Castle, and on Princes St, a central commercial destination with a beautiful park. The building is gorgeous and the rooms fine. There is a lot of construction going on so the front lobby was non existent by the time we left but hopefully it will make the place even more pleasant.

Old World Charm and Unrivaled Service

Would recommend Fri 19 Aug 2011
From the moment I stepped in I felt as if I had been transported back to a finer and gentler time. From the old clock that had been in the original railway station, to the grand staircase, no detail had been overlooked. It was luxurious and comfortable. The staff were all welcoming. When I checked in I was given a room upgrade (I'm not sure why.) I had the most beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle and since the tattoo was on I got treated to fireworks each night. The staff bent over backwards to make sure that all my wants and needs were being taken care of. I'd like to particularly commend the restaurant staff and the team of concierges who helped me with everything from booking tours to helping me with driving directions to remote parts of Scotland. Across the street is the not to be missed bar/restaurant/club Ghillie Dhu. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Entertainment hint

The Camera Obscura is an attraction that should not be missed. It is an exhibit of illusions, holograms and morphing machines. The highlight is the camera itself which is a system of mirrors that projects a periscope image of the city onto a flat disc. The guide zooms in selected spots of some of the major sights of Edinburgh in real time.
