Old time service very close to the Royal Mile and the Waverly train station. An excellent full Scottish breakfast is served. A small bar with really good food served all day.

LOVE The Scotsman!”
Everything about this hotel is remarkable. It is close to everything you will want to do from a sense of walking, like the Royal Mile and is close to any of the tours offered. The train station is right next door too...but you don't notice the sound of the train during your stay. The staff is exceptional and the hotel is dripping with history. Stay as long as you can and enjoy it!

Hoteling done right!”
Hotels are always blah, faceless, and usually for me , a huge letdown. But the Scotsman Hotel has been done well. Beautiful textures and detail to warmth and comfort with traditional woolens. The bath and the bedding felt quite luxurious. In the age of the decline of grand old hotels, the Scotsman exemplifies what hotel experience was like yester years and should be today.

Loved everything about the Scotsman Hotel from the staff who assisted us when we got there until check out and the little surprises in the room (rum sample and the tea cakes) Our TV didnt work at one point and we had to call for it get fixed and the elevator was under maintenance for a day so we had to use another route but that didnt dampen our spirits. We fell in love with Scotsman Hotel and Edinburg. We cant stop talking about our experience and planning to come back. Simply BEAUTIFUL!

Aspires to be high class but lack of facilities (lounge / good restaurant)”
Room was fine - although very warm. Lost hot water for a time, and taps leaked a bit, but these are minor. However for a high price hotel, disappointing that there was no comfortable bar, and restaurant was uninspiring. Poor value for money.

Wonderful”
The staff is all fabulous. From the wonderfully helpful reception area (forgive me for not catching your name) young lady with a beautiful slavic accent who was incredibly helpful with suitcase storage, to the doorman who is the "face" of the Scotsman. Ideally located next to the bridge, Waverly station and within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile and easy access to Market street. The room was bright, clean and well appointed with a very comfortable bed, selection of books,bottled water and a welcoming dram o f Scottish whiskey. There was a lovely selection of teas and coffee with a small jug of real milk in the fridge and a welcome cookies to have with your tea. The building itself is refurbished from the old Scotsman newspaper office but still holds touches of days gone by with all the modern amenities. Although not inexpensive, it was worth every penny for those touches that added so much to the end and beginning of each day spent in this scenic city.Absolutely delightful!

Good location close to Royal mile with direct access to Waverley station. Rooms comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a buffet with the option to also order cooked items such as omelette and pancakes. Would recommend for location and service.

Great Hotel in Perfect Loation”
The Scotsman was an Awesome hotel. A friend and me stayed there for a long weekend in April. It is right around the corner from the Royal Mile but we couldn't hear any of the noise while sleeping at night. It is also right across from the train station making it super easy and convenient to find when we arrived by train. The check-in was smooth and the staff was ever so friendly. It was walking distance from both castles and Arthur's Seat as well as the sights for all the Harry Potter lovers out there. Would 100% come back here again and recommend!

I have never had such attentive service as I had at this hotel. My room was beautiful, clean, and fully stocked. We were looking for good seafood place to have dinner, and all of a sudden there were 3 staff members on phones and computers looking for a place for us. From the time I arrived, until the time I had to leave I felt like a VIP. I have already recommended this hotel to others. Thank you so much for a relaxed, comfortable and welcoming vacation.

Attention to detail, exquisite!”
Booked this hotel from Australia for my parents who were celebrating my mother's 60th. Let the hotel staff know they don't speak English and about the occasion and they looked after them with extra care. On arrival they got upgraded with a special gift in the room. Breakfast I was told was amazing as well as staff!
