Very helpful staff accommodated a BBC slightly early check in, valet parked my car, at a reasonable rate for city centre. Superb location for walking to central Edinburgh locations. Good breakfast (although individually prepared full Scottish would have been better than buffet) Excellent on site restaurant.

Great location with all the facilities you would expect to find. Only small downside was our room wasn’t cleaned on one of the days.

Disclaimer- Kimpton did refund me for my experience but, if your stay includes a Friday night I would stay elsewhere because the Friday night noise is excessive for the price

Great location. The rooms were very nice and spacious, large well lit bathroom. Very clean! Not sure that this place is wheelchair accessible.

Liked: Cleanliness
Whilst the staff were pleasant and helpful, the overall service was not what I would expect in a 5* hotel. The kitchen shut early on the day I arrived and I was unable to book in for breakfast despite it being 1015. The room was nice and decor was lovely. The breakfast when I did get it over the remainder of my stay was average. A nice hotel but not worthy of 5* status. I have stayed in the Mayfair, London several times which is 5* and there’s no comparison.
Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2022

Hotel in superb location in West End of Edinburgh. Great welcome at hotel and luggage taken to our room. Stayed in a twin room overlooking George Street which was great. Only disappointment was our TV didn’t work properly. Didn’t affect us as only staying one night . Would stay again
