Always fond of the hotel with its rich history and brilliant architecture. Location was in the old town of Edinburgh which was full of history.The hotel was near to Edinburgh castle and it is always easy to go to the new town or princess street.

Car park a big let down”
we booked this hotel coz in agoda it says carpark available, but what they didnt say is that its not within the hotel! it was near the railway station and you needed to pay 17 GBP for an overnight parking. Hilton can validate your parking ticket but that only gives you 20% off. very disappointing as the woman in reception didnt let me know when we checked in and asked where the parking was. We booked one night in this very expensive hotel thinking that it would be the best for us coz we have a car. I suggest to look elsewhere or call the hotel first and verify if carpark is available for free.

Very good Hotel in Edinburgh”
All of hotel’s staffs I met were very professional, they provided us with the great back up and help us to arrange our luggage when we scheduled to join the 4-days’ local tour. Hilton will be on the list of my first choice to plan the upcoming journey. I take this opportunity to thanks them and appreciate their well-done work.

Great location ”
Pros - great location at old town/royal mile area. Within walking distance of attractions in old town and new town area is accessible via north bridge or the scotsman steps. Room was clean and comfortable. Cons - hallways have steps hence a bit inconvenient if you’re dragging a big luggage. If you’re getting off bus/train at Waverley station, exit to Princes street and cross over via the North Bridge. Otherwise you might end up lugging your lugggage up the Scotsman Steps which is 104 steps.

Good but not great”
For the price you are paying I think you get a better stay at the Radisson Blu round the corner or the G&V just up the road. The showers in the Hilton have pathetic water pressure and are a bit mouldy. The carpets somehow aren't flat (i.e. bumpy) and squeak when you walk over them. The layout is ridiculously confusing and if you get a room on floor 1 or below you are essentially in the basement. It's a decent hotel and the location is great but you get that and more at other hotels nearby. The Hilton does however have the best gym of the lot in my opinion.

Good hotel, good location, heater not good, No car park”
Hotel is nice and near tourist area. But not recommended if you bring car. car park is far and they charge fee for it. Heater is central which makes difficult for you to adjust on your own. when we ask for warmer room, reception say they will help from central but still room is very cold at night and morning.

Beautiful hotel in an excellent location”
Beautiful hotel looks like it's just been refurbished, rooms were very nice and breakfast was excellent. Most of the staff were really nice and helpful but at check in I did feel like the receptionist looked down on me. Granted I had just come off a 12 hour flight alone with a baby and looked knackered but still I am a paying customer. She then realized that I had booked a pretty expensive room and let us in the room early. So she was redeemed! Lol the second incident was a coupe of hours before check out , went to have a shower while my baby was a sleep when one of the male staff walked in without knocking. This gave me a massive fright, I should have had the door locked but with it being card access doors I didn't worry to much about. He did apologize profusely but it still freaked me out especially being there with my baby. Overall beautiful hotel, amazing breakfast but some unfortunate and I think not the norm interactions with some staff. Also note they did not have any blankets to fit a baby cot (cot was provided at no extra charge by hotel).

Building site”
Whilst this has been and quite possibly will be a very good hotel in a great location, it was let down badly due to the fact that it is undergoing refurbishment. I wasn't made aware of this when I booked, nor was I helped by staff in this regard. The lifts (when I was able to find them) weren't in full working order and I constantly had to run the gauntlet of groups of overall clad foreign workmen. I shouldn't have paid this amount of money for this type of experience. It should have been heavily discounted.

hotel not finished ”
We stayed here for the night on the 10th of July. When we arrived at the hotel we realised it was being renovated but when I booked I did not realise this, if I had known I could have booked elsewhere. We were informed by staff that there was no spa or pool and hadn't been for the last 3 months.The pool/spa being the reason l booked. Didn't book breakfast as thought £45 was a lot for this. We were on the 5th floor and as there was a large quew for the lift we used the stairs, when using the lift again we couldn't get in as work men went into the lift. Lift was still coverd with cardboard and tape, the walls were still getting painted and papered. The bar still hand been finish, there was still a lot of unfinished work going on.The place had workers equipment laying around. It wasn't the best feeling being in the middle of what felt like a building site. When finished I am sure the hotel will be lovely and look like how it is advertised on the website. However if having the choice I wouldn't have booked the hotel at this time.
