        Great Rooms, Delicious Food”

        Lovely spacious rooms. The hotel in general was clean and to an excellent standard. Beautiful location in Leith, within walking distance from a few nice restaurants and pubs. Its also just outside the quay which was just lovely to sit outside and watch. We didn't really have much contact with the staff, but they seemed polite during dinner.

        Seaside Edinburgh boutique little charm”

        Coziness, easy to access, value for money

        We arrive by driving but the little road to the front door is not so easy to find. Luckily there're plenty of park spaces right outside and behind the hotel. Smooth check in but we found no towels in bedroom. But quickly solved by attentive staff. I loved the coziness of the room and the hotel itself. Situated nearby the sea i can walk around the canal while convenient store is just steps away. Even on days I didn't drive to explore Edinburgh, there are frequent bus line going from the hotel to the city centre.

        Excellent hotel in the heart of Leith”

        Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, the staff are excellent and the location is good

        The hotel has been there a while and is popular with business travelers heading to Leith -- and for good reason. It's an excellent hotel, very professional staff and although it's pricey it often has good deals available. There are bars and restaurants close by and excellent bus links into the city.

        Nice old hotel”

        Location, History, Ambiance

        sprawling hotel with long winding hallways and stairs. Slightly run down but still comfortable. Excellent location for walking around Edinburgh. Beware - The Hotel info says they have car parking but this is not near the hotel - It is a deal they have with one of the down town car parks. If you are only over-nighting for business then just pay for a metered park at the front of the Hotel.

        It is unacceptable to charge the customer twice, I know error can happen and you can refund it back, but what if I have to use that amount of money in urgency. It is unacceptable, I do not recommned this hotel.

        Love this hotel! This is the second time I've stayed here, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Service and facilities are top class. Location is perfect - Leith has loads to offer. Uber, taxi or bus go straight up to Edinburgh. Only slight negative is that there is no safe in the rooms.

        Great location . Great hotel. ”

        We have been to stay at Mal Edinburgh many times over the past 15 years. It is a 15 minute bus trip to the city centre but there is everything you need in the Shore area of Leith. Fab restaurants, bars and a lot more peaceful than the hussle of the city centre. The hotel is perfect for a couples getaway. Fab boutique rooms . Highly recommended.

        Nice, mildly quircky in a pleasant way. Good location, large pleasantly decorated room. Excellent and helpful staff, good breakfast. We had a relaxing and comfortably stay here. We mainly went to visit the Royal Yacht which was about a 10 minute walk away but much preferred the hotel's location at Leith to the centre of Edinburgh which we found too busy. There are good bus links to the centre plus a tour bus that leaves from the nearby shopping mall. Would go back again and recommend.

        The hotel is in a good place. It is about 20min from Royal Britania and lots of shops. It sits in the docks and there are lots of resturant and pubs near it. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is continental or £2 extra gets a English breakfast. The bar is expensive. We had a beer and gin and tonic £14. The car park is free.

        As you would expect a funky hotel, nice rooms, comfy beds with decent linen and really helpful staff. Not cheap but nice for a weekend away and also nice to be away from the centre of town and the tourists. One tithing we couldn't work out was where the bottle opener for the mini bar was. It's unlike a hotel that pays attention to details to have forgotten such a thing!

        Quality hotel in a trendy location.”

        Located an easy bus ride from the city centre this hotel is set in the trendy old docks area. Plenty of nearby restaurants offer good choices to eat if you wish and the excellent, regular and cheap bus service takes you into the city while you take advantage of a rare thing in Edinburgh - a hotel with plenty of free parking. That's what attracted me and I will happily return.

        Fantastic location and building. Food excellent. Staff excellent. Room was tired and had issues: Phone did not work. Sink cracked. Juliette window would not shut and creeked as it swung in the breeze. Pencil blunt with no means of sharpening. No clock in room. Expected better coffee/tea facilities. Tray with travel kettle, fiddley coffee filter bags etc in wardrobe which you have to hunt for and the bring it to a power point. Only one awful lemon biscuit on offer. Wall had chunks taken out of near where you take the tea tray out of wardrobe. Room very dark

        Lovely rooms
        Was a bit far out of the centre of Edinburgh

        We used this hotel whilst visiting Edinburgh for the Tatoo. The frequent city link bus stop was nearby and made the journey into the centre very easy. There are lots of nice bars around the hotel(although they did seem to close very early). the fish restauarnts along the quayside were excellent. The Royal Yatch Brittania is just a short stroll away and well worth a vist.
