Good but one fault”
Room had en-suite wc separate from Bathroom but without basin for washing hands and we had to go between bedroom to wash hands. Not sanitary.
Lovely hotel, great location ”
Lovely and modern, large room. Great location near Grass Market and Castle. Has its own bar and restaurant, breakfast was excellent
1. ROOM NO TOWEL , CALLED 4 TIMES AND BEING REPLIED TO WAIT , THE 5TH TIMES SAID NO TOWEL AS THEY SHORT OF TOWEL. 2. BED EXTREME DIRTY , THE BED COVER SHOWED BROWNISH COLOUR AND SANDY , SEEMS NOT BEING CHANGED FOR MONTHS. 3. SHOWER SINK NOT WORKING , CALLED RECEPTION AND BEING ASKED TO WAIT UNTIL THE DAY AFTER AS THERE WAS NO TECHNICIAN AVAILABLE , THE TECHNICIAN CAME ABOUT CHECK OUT TIME BUT AFTER REPAIR STILL NOT WORKING , AT THE END DONE SHOWER AT THE OTHER ROOM. 4. THE WORST HOTEL I EVER STAYED SO FAR.
Renovations Noise Disturbancr”
We were not informed at any point during online booking or check-in that there would be renovations taking place. So the Monday morning which we took off of work to have a long weekend and a lie in was disturbed by drilling and hammering. This could have been acceptable if only we had the courtesy of being told about it in advance by staff!
Disappointing, as we have been located to the room that the floor is being under construction (4th floor), so we have to go to 5th Floor, then step down with my big luggage to 4th Floor, and same when we want to go out , need to step up first. Floor which is unclean, messy..,. I am disappointing, as have not been informed before.. Also no drinking water provided ..
The room is spacious”
Although the hotel room is spacious, the room wasn't clean. When I checked in, the room still have leftover rubbish from the previous guest.
Clean and spacious hotel, 15mins walk to the old town”
This is a neat, clean and spacious hotel. Shower and room facilities are great. The hotel is just next to the University of Edinburgh. It is a good 15 mins walk to the Old Town where the attractions are and about 10 mins to a small area where you can do banking and dining. Breakfast was good though staff serving is abit slow.
Wonderful stay. ”
Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location about 15 min from the Royal Mile. Would book again.
Breakfast was good, but the cleanliness of the room is not very good, carpets are dirty. Otherwise its really a nice hotel to stay
STAFF EXCELLENT HOWEVER THE ROOM CARPETS ARE FILTHY AND THE HEATING WAS SWITCHED OFF REMOTELY . THE ROOM WAS CHILLY IN THE EVEVNINGS AND NO HEATING AVAILABLE .
The room need some renovation. The breakfast was very good.
Hotel is good but staff unprofessional ”
In general hotel Hardware is good but service feft terrible by 3 complains. Unprofessional checkin exp at the beginning. We booked rooms inc. breakfast, but staff seems forget that and didn't tell about info about breakfast and attitude make me feel cold. We booked rooms for 2 nights, but we need to change room key at second day without any notice, which is rediculous why I need to change room key at my second stay? Finally, the housekeeper mistakingly take 3 of our switch adopters because they may think it's belonging to hotel, which is very rediculous that 1. We stay in hotel for 2nightd and they took away switch auditor at 1st night; 2. The type of 3 adopters are different from hotel's in color and make no sense to make this mistake. By the way, when talking this issue with receptionist, her attitude shows it seems not hotel mistake even if her attitude is no unfriendly.
I was there three nights. Got there early for check in but they had a room ready so let me check in there and then. Room was a great size - really large for a hotel room. Location is right round the corner from Grassmarket so brilliant for unique little places and bars and restaurants and a nice walk up to the Royal Mile. I ate twice in the hotel and was impressed with the quality of the food. My only complaints would be that the heating wasn't great - didn't seem to make much of a difference when I had it on. Also, the shower was too hot and I couldn't seem to change the temperature - close to scalding temperature. I did let them know at front desk and they said they would have a look but I didn't notice any difference. Great size bathroom with a bath and a separate shower and the toilet itself completely separate. Staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was small but cute! I would happily stay there again.
Had a great stay.”
Happy to stay at Novotel Edinburgh Centre Hotel”
very lovely stay. My 3yr old loved it!!
long weekend break”
Great lost to see and do
Old hotel ”
In general, I was expecting better stay condition since it claimed to be 4 star hotel. Apart from the very old furniture and old-fashion bathroom, a very helpful staff service has offset it. Maybe I was just being unfortunate to have that rusty old room. However, I don't think I will be back for this hotel again.
Great for a weekend with friends”
Great hotel would definately recommend to others !!
