Grassmarket Hotel is a very modern and cozy botique hotel conveniently located near the tourist sites. All the sites are within walking distance so it was very good location-wise. Rooms were a bit small but very clean and just right. Cute designs too.

    Room so tiny couldn’t get around to other side of bed. Room didn’t cool down despite outside temp being a chilly 10. Needed to open window but so dirty on ledge which was right above my head that was not possible. Very uncomfortable stay.

    Nice hotel and great location ”
    Stayed 2 nights in 2 rooms with a family group. Very clean rooms with nice touches like coffee, tea, chocolates, water all included. Modern bathrooms were great. Get a room overlooking the grass market. Fun people watching. A bit noisy at night because of the people outside having fun, but it did not bother us.

    Room was the perfect size for one person, clean and updated, but a bit loud as it was connected to a pub. No iron or phone in the room; expected these things for the price paid. Location was very good, within walking distance to many sites, restaurants, and shops.

    Gig gem in heart of town. Well placed for food, drinks and concerts. ”
    Great looking rooms, well situated for those attending gigs nearby or hitting the Tourist sites surrounding Edinburgh Castle. Only drawback was the noise from the laminate floors (understand this is for easy of cleaning). Some lovely quirky touches like the tunnocks teacakes adds to the appeal. Staff are very helpful and were quick to remedy any issues.

    Perfect location, too small room”
    You can't beat the location right on the corner of Grassmarket and Victoria Street. However, we had a twin room on fifth floor (elevator only goes to fourth) just under the roof. Very small room - and the worst thing: The window couldn't be open. In other words, the indoor climate wasn't too great. Especially after shower, sleeping or when you had been to the toilet...cleaning wasn't great. We dropped some instant coffee on the floor the first night. It wasn't cleaned up when we left after four nights in total. The staff was ok/average. Thus, best value of this place is location, location, location.

    They find the right balance beetwin the great history of Edinburgh and the comfort of the new generation of hotels. The building is old and in the centre of the town, just perfect to visit all the museum and the castle. And is also convenient with all modern facilities with a welcome young, efficient and smiling

    Bad experience - will not recommend or choose this hotel again for next trip”
    The hotel have rooms on two separate sections, one section is served by lifts to all floors, whereas the other section is not accessible via lift and have to walk up and down by a narrow staircase. Staff not very helpful and does not help with luggage. Also, would recommend all visitors to pack and lock all your personal items in your luggage every day before leaving the hotel room. Personal items (left on the table) were taken during my stay there. Even though the item taken was not of significant value, but still very surprise that this happened. Overall, rather a negative experience. Will not repeat another stay there for next trip.

    Very quirky spotless hites”
    Loved this hotelink. Stephen was at reception when we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful. He offered to book a table at the Witchery restaurant for us, pointed out places of interest and gave us a discount voucher for Biddy Mulligan's next door which entitled us to 15% off our food bill and a free drink. Our room was very spacious with 3 single beds (requested), huge shower, decent drip coffee and the little free chocolate mallows made a very welcoming impression on us three ladies. Only small negative was that the sound-proofed windows could not be opened. Next morning, we were first at the castle, 5 minute'so walk away. We all agreed we would never stay anywhere else in Edinburgh. Thanks again to Stephen.

    Excellent and impressive!”
    The design of the room and the lobby is creative and eye-catching. The room and shower are clean and well-equipped, even with snacks and different flavours of tea. The facilities in the room are very "user-friendly," by which I mean they are convenient and easy to use. For example, the sink in the shower is big and there are lots of drawers and racks with which guests can easily organise their stuffs. We were allowed to store our luggage free of charge in the hotel for a few days when we were away to the Highlands. I would surely recommend the hotel to others.

    Great stay!”
    Great location close to tourist attractions. Room is very compact but comfy with nice little surprises i.e chocolates in mug. Hotel staff is pleasant and accomodating when we wanted to store our luggage upon checkout to do a quick sightseeing. Hauling our supersized luggage to the room is a challenge though with the stairs and many pass-through doors (our room was on the 2nd flr but only accessible via 1st flr elevator). Overall was a great stay at a unique hotel.
