The room was booked as a Junior Suite when it was just a slightly larger room. Bed was super king size. Bathroom was well equipped. There are long term roadworks right outside the front door which makes getting a taxi very difficult. The only dining option is the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse which is both formal and expensive.

We were ther 4 nights. We did not get room cleaned once even though we put cleaning request outside the door. We had to go to front desk and ask for new towels, toilet paper and shampoo. Front desk never answered the phone from room. Rooms are antiquated. Pillows hardened and old. Spider webs around the lights. Asked for wash clothes. They said because of Covid they do not provide. It did not make sense as all other hotels we stayed provided without asking. Ordered food through room service and it took more than two hours. Brought to staff/manager attention, all we heard was apologies. I am surprised that they are able to maintain Hilton banner. It was it was poorly managed, maintained and operated hotel. I usually do not comment on a stay. This one I had to do, so others do not experience same.

Hilton is the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. It is 5 minutes from the train station and only a 2 minute walk from the royal mile. Our room was very comfortable, excellent air conditioning as well. Breakfast was very good as well with all dietary needs catered for. Even at its busiest time the breakfast ran very well. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Overall good stay although pricey . The worst part is the parking . The garage they suggest is 3-4 blocks away and difficult to find. We called the desk 3 times circling the area and were provided wrong directions each time .

I had selected a twin room as I was treating my sons to weekend in Edinburgh. When my sons arrived they wer provided with a queen bed and neither one of them is a small guy. The hotel did not have any twins available so the offer was misrepresented on Expedia.

The hotel was smack in the center of the Royal mile...but with that comes the crowds and the noise. I had an issue with the bathroom that never got resolved...which is a shame because the bathroom was spacious and well appointed otherwise.

The staff were exceptionally friendly. Unfortunately, only one power outlet in the room worked and the hair dryer didn’t work which I only realized after washing my hair.
