Very nice location near the center of Edinburgh and easily accessible to rail and a short walk from nearby car rental. The staff is very helpful and the room was exceptional. Dining at the cafe is enjoyable but schedule ahead for Tea if you want to experience that. The only challenge is the considerable road construction making it impossible to drive up and drop off anything. The immediate area is both noisy and fairly messy with high foot traffic, which detracts from an otherwise remarkable hotel.

Great hotel. Parking was a disaster. Not their fault. Heavy construction. Did make checking in stressful.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Carpets were dirty through out room and hotel. Batteries were dead for the TV remote so had to figure out how to manually operate it. Beds were not very comfortable with one sheet covering the mattress. When our room was serviced after we asked for it not to be (we try to save the water) It looked like they re-hung our used hand towels (as one was dirty and we could tell). Our bath towels were re-rolled and put back as new as there was eye make-up on one and I don’t where eye makeup but my travel friend did (so they got mixed up for us). Really disappointed as we paid a lot of money for a three night stay in August.

Beautiful stay near Miracle Mile in Edinburgh. The Scotsman is one of the fanciest hotels I have had the pleasure of staying at. Close to everything.
