    Attention by the General Manager to personally apologise for the condition if the tiles in the bathroom, he would not offer the room however all of Edinburgh was booked out due to the Ryder Cup. I was given half price for the room robe and slippers. Everything in the bathroom was functional, the bed was very comfortable and all facilities were excellent. I would recommend the hotel to any traveller based solely on the attention and pride shown by the General Manager and his staff

    Rooms were comfortable and soundproof, experienced no noises from other guests. Friendly staff and the food was great

    We were a group of six friends and we really enjoyed our stay thank you. I forgot my charger and someone at reception let me charge my phone on theirs which was very useful. We had a great breakfast and a comfortable sleep and the room was nice and clean.

    One of the rooms 407 did not have a mirror on the dressing table so we had to keep taking the lirror off the wall to dry our hair. Although the room was clean it did smell a bit funny - like stale smoke - we were not in it for that long so it didnt bother us that much.

    If you are looking for a Hotel that is good value,serves good food,provides excellent friendly service and is a great location for the Castle/Royal Mile/Grassmarket/Bus Stops then look no further than the Edinburgh City Hotel! You really will not be disappointed. This was our first visit but if we ever go back to Edinburgh then we would definitely stay here again.

    Quiet location but in easy reach of city centre shopping, attractions and night life. The staff were very friendly and attentive and I could not fault the service, cleanliness or the quality of the food on offer. The hotel is only around 1 k from both main rail stations and the Service 35 bus from the Airport, (not the Airlink service) stops are about 150 metres from the hotel. Probably not an ideal hotel for families with young children but would highly reccomend to all other travellers and groups.
