Awful hotel. The toilet in our room was not cleaned and was quite disgusting and unsanitary. When we complained it took forever for them to do anything and they were not very apologetic for this nor did they offer any way to make it up to us. We booked a double deluxe room for 3 people so we were expecting 2 double beds however one of the beds was a low rickety little bed. The walls are paper thin and we could hear full conversations from the rooms next door. Nowhere near the star rating it has.... Read more

My wife and I stayed here a week while vacationing in Scotland. We found the staff to be very helpful and they gave us our good recommendations for eating and things to do. The location is okay but a bit away from the center, below the castle. Our room was a bit cramped for two people and the bathroom was truly tiny.

Much has been written about the friendliness and approachability of the hotel staff and, on our second visit here (shortly before the UK was about to initiate divorce proceedings from the rest of Europe) this is what struck us most. Indeed, one of them even described it as like working in a family - in spite of the fact that members came from the four corners of the globe, some with a tenuous grasp of English and for a relatively short tenure.

Having paid over £200 per room for a family birthday I found this hotel to be totally overpriced for what we received. We had to request to change one of our twin rooms as the room was small with a tiny window overlooking the car park. We were told only available room was a disabled room to which we moved to. Only to be greeted by the reception staff a couple of hours later and asked to move again.

My stay at the DoubleTree in Edinburgh was very pleasant. The staff were very helpful during my entire visit and made several good recommendations for places to eat and visit. The room were very spacious with high ceilings (which made the rooms feel even bigger). The bed and bath were comfortable and clean which made for a great overall experience. This hotel would be my first choice the next time I am back in Edinburgh.

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights. The front desk staff were really friendly and helpful at all times.

The Doubletree Hilton City Centre is a nice hotel that carries all the excellence of the Hilton name with it.

Great location in old town. We were able to walk to the castle for the tattoo and avoid all the traffic. Lots of restaurants within walking distance at grassmarket. The rooms are up to date but small and so are the bathrooms. The staff was great and very helpful. We were able to store our luggage while going on a 3 day highland tour.

I stayed for 6 nights at the hotel and had a great time. The location is great - close to (walking distance) the touristy area (Edinburgh Castle), lots of restaurants and the Meadows (park). The hotel seems a bit old at first glance - but the room was clean and spacious. Good facilities - including a gym. Internet was ok too. I am happy with the food options offered at the breakfast buffet. I find the hotel staff were friendly too. Overall, I enjoyed by stay and will consider staying at the... Read more

This is in a perfect location for accessing old town and new town on foot. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We had the end room which has a rounded bank of windows which was very nice. Even though it was on the second floor, I didn't hear outside noise. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room. The only thing I found off was the decor. It was bit too modern for my tastes considering the historic area. Breakfast was good and with plenty of selections. The bar was always bus... Read more

Have stayed in Edinburgh several times and this time gave DoubleTree by Hilton a try. The hotel is very convenient to all the main attractions. Approx a 10 minute walk to the Castle, Grassmarket area or shopping areas. The room we occupied on the 4th floor had a view of the castle with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was pleasant and we never had to wait for a table. Staff at the hotel were helpful. We would return to this hotel again.

Had a great stay. Caught the fireworks over Edinburgh Castle, which was really magnificent. The walk up the hill to the castle takes about 15 minutes. Location is pretty good, but red light district is only a couple of blocks away.

My husband and I were at the hotel for a weekend. The policy of the Hilton is always give a cookie at the entrance. The room was very nice, large and roomy. Very nice bathroom, but they could put glass door in the bathtubs instead to fabric curtains. The morning coffee could be a little better because the juices are concentrated the instead be natural. The-cleansing service is impeccable. The hotel is well located and you do not use bus or other means of transport. It has a supermarket nearby.

Stayed here in February, hotel at first sight is nice and quality looking, bar was up marker and had a nice atmosphere. Only let down was my room, ended up getting a room which had a view onto a brick wall and was made worse with an extremely small window, meaning room was virtually dark even in daylight, not the best considering it was a valentine get away. Breakfast was also a bit of a let down, waited over 20 mins in a queue until eventually got sat down at a table.

Located on Bread Street, away from the Royal Mile, this hotel is just 10 minutes walk from the Castle. Stayed during the Festival and was a pleasant oasis. Very pleasant front desk staff, good restaurant (excellent breakfast) and comfortable bar/lounge. Nice bedrooms, reasonable size. I like this hotel.

I sure recommend this hotel, rooms are nice and clean , breakfast is well served, Pretty British ( I love it), its near Edinburgh old town, it's a walking distance from the city main tourist attractions . Best part: when you check-in reception staff gives you the best cookie of the world!!!! It is delicious like the ones your grandma used to bake for you ???

Well placed hotel with very friendly staff. Always nice to be greeted by a warm and friendly receptionist when you arrive after a long day and delayed flight. Rooms are decent albeit on the smaller side. Everything you'd expect in them. Happily stay here again on future visits.

I'm a photography and when we booked this hotel the add indicated that there was a roof top bar over looking Edinburgh Castle. Turns out it only open 1 night a month. In the two weeks touring the U.K. this was the most expensive hotel we stayed in. Odd location and room setup which didn't deliver the value I expected.

We visited Edinburgh for a couple of days and were very pleased with our choice of this hotel. I can't say enough about the great service. Their staff was fantastic. We chose a room with a view of the castle and were very glad that we did . I also recommend their delicious breakfast buffet that has a great selection. It is a easy walk from here to Edinburgh Castle and to great shops and cafes since it is near the Royal Mile.

We spent three nights at the Double Tree, which is in the center of the city. As a result, we did not need a car and were able to walk everywhere. It is located at the base of the castle. Best location!

This was a very nice hotel. The only drawback is that it is a little bit of a walk to get to the main streets of Edinburgh. We don't mind walking but after walking around all day, we didn't want to make the trip back up the hill for dinner. There were several options near the hotel, so all was good.

The Edinburgh Doubletree is conveniently located in the center of town. It's very convenient to most of the popular sites but is far enough away that it's not overwhelmed with people. The rooms are reasonably appointed and the bed is very comfortable. We had a view of the castle which was fascinating. The primary value of hotel though is the staff. The service is exceptional. While there is not a concierge, the desk staff perform the function admirably. They are anxious to help you plan you... Read more
