This hotel is ideal for walking into Edinburgh, across the Meadows, or up to Morningside. Great location and generally well placed...good views of Castle from some rooms. Food good especially breakfasts...probably best we have ever had. Lounges and bar very comfortable. Dining room good but sometimes a wee bit busy with breakfasts, however very good service.

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights whilst attending a conference at the EICC. I arrived about 1400 and was able to check in immediately. I was very politely greeted by the receptionists. Overall the staff were great, friendly and helpful. My room was on the first floor. It was a lovely room with big windows that acted like a greenhouse, trapping all the warmth from the sun. The room had a wardrobe, safe, two easy chairs, two bedside tables, large bed, desk and TV. Coffee and tea were supplied.... Read more

Very nice hotel at a good price. About 15-20 minute walk to the Royal Mile if you take the walking path through the park. Plenty of restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel. Free parking but very few places to park. We parked and left the car there, walked everywhere. On premise restaurant with good food although there are better options for breakfast.

In the US, Best Western is a mid-range motel experience--and sometimes worse! But this is a quality property, very elegant, great service and it a perfect location for exploring as it is walking distance from the Royal Mile and just across the street from the Meadows and environs. We had a very nice room, complete with coffee/tea, etc. We didn't sample the restaurant, but there is a full-service bar and dining area, too.

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the location in a very upmarket area of Edinburgh. For the price paid the hotel was slightly disappointing - the decor was a bit dull, furniture in the room not very comfortable.We were in room 202 which was a rather irregular shape and thus not greatly spacious or attractive. The lighting was not good. The worst feature was the noise from the next room - the TV was surely on the other side of what must have been a very thin wall as one could easily follow what fil...

We stopped here for two nights on our weeklong trip through Scotland. The hotel has a charme to it, coming from dated (in the best sense) architecture. The first floor is a bit of a maze, but the signs lead you to your room. Our room was decently sized, with a generous bathroom a half floor downstairs. The neighbours TV was easy to hear (but cannot tell how loudly they were listenijg). Breakfast buffet was rather average.

Very nice hotel a bit from town center, but still in walking distance. Everything was fine, the wifi was little fuzzy to use though. One must register for 72 hours use, but when you reconnect within 72 hours, you need to run the registration process through E-mail agian, this was a little anoing. And If i should wish for more it should be a fitnes room.

Loved our stay here...very friendly staff, felt welcome and at home! Even moreso on being presented with a glass of bubbly on hearing it was our anniversary..Scottish hospitality at it's best! Lovely park across from hotel leading into city centre. The walk itself taking in the history and amazing architecture of Edinburgh was mesmerising. There is also a varied selection of shops more or less the minute you leave the hotel with Princes Street not too far away, within walking distance. Our room... Read more

Nice place but room very basic lots of street and corridors noise and bed the softest most uncomfortable I have ever tried to sleep in. Was awake literally every 5 minutes and am now exhausted. £140 for a really bad night. Thanks a lot. Oh and then have to pay another tenner each for breakfast! There must be better rooms/hotels to stay in Edinburgh for that price. Will not be staying here again

The walk to the Royal Mile takes about 30 minutes or a cab for 5pounds. Our room was quite large (124) with an even larger bathroom. We faced the park across the street - no street noise at all. Because the hotel is comprised of three row houses, there are a lot of twists, turns and steps to get around the hallways but nothing that cannot be easily navigated and steps are just two or three at a time. Nice breakfast options consisting of continental and hot options. Front desk staff was graci... Read more

Pros: - Friendly and helpful staff - Comfortable beds - Good room sizes - Clean rooms - Plenty of warm water for showers - Fantastic turndown service - A 10 minute taxi journey to the centre of Edinburgh Cons: - Thin walls meaning you can hear a lot of the busy traffic between 5am and 9pm, especially when the emergency services travel by. This also means you can often hear the television in the adjacent rooms. - Wifi cuts out every 15 minutes and not a one-day problem as I stayed there for 5 ... Read more

We enjoyed our stay at the Edinburgh Bruntsfield Hotel. The old hotel was well refurbished, clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The lobby was elegant. The rooms were pretty and comfortable, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the great breakfast buffet that included a cooked breakfast. Good value for money too. Would certainly book again.

Clean spacious rooms. complimentary coffee and shortbread biscuits in reception - a great touch. Friendly staff, led from the front by the Manager. Great choice of breakfast - the usual suspects: cereal, toast, meats, cheese, fruit, yoghurts. A big plus was the full Scottish cooked breakfast (cooked to order, not from the buffet), porridge (Unfortunately I'm from the ready brek generation so I can't cope with real porridge!) and star of the show scrambled egg with salmon which was a big hit.

From the minute I booked this hotel to the minute I sadly left I felt confident and contented that everything would be taken care of! I stayed two nights and all the staff without exception were very helpful,friendly and smiley faced! When dealing with the public it is not always easy to achieve this standard so very well done to the Management in this hotel for training the fabulous staff.

The breakfast is fantastic & is always freshly cooked to order.

We stayed here for two nights on a trip to Edinburgh. The hotel has parking though it is limited. The welcome was very friendly but we did have problems finding our room. The hotel is quirky in its layout with corridors and steps all over the place. We found the right room eventually. It was quite quirky as well with the main bedroom which was quite small and then down three steps to the wardrobe and bathroom. It was clean and comfortable though. We were overlooking the dining room and te... Read more

We booked here as we were looking for a nice place to stay after a night out at the theatre. (Kings theatre is walking distance away). Often when staying in capital city hotels space is at a premium but the room we booked (superior) was huge with a very comfy four poster bed. There's free parking for hotel guests so we could ditch the car and explore Edinburgh by foot. The neighbourhood is very artisinal with craft coffee, chocolate and cheesecake within 100 yards of the hotel as well as a wealt... Read more

Our family room was spacious, split into two rooms with a large bathroom which had both a bath and a shower- useful for the wee ones. Room was clean and warm. Staff were very pleasant, and breakfast was great with lots of choice. There are shops and restaurants nearby, the Meadows are across the road with a playground about 5 mins walk away. The Royal Mile is about 25 mins walk, but there are plenty of buses to the city from the stop 100m up the road.

Loved the location, perfect for a short walk to the city centre but some great bars and shops nearby too. A lovely park across the road (bigger than you think) The hotel is spotless and our room was good too. The facilities (when we found our way around) were great. Shame we weren't told much on arrival by a very professional and polite gentleman on reception. We had to ask where to go for breakfast as it was tucked out of the way and it appeared that coffee and biscuits were free in the recepti... Read more

This hotel is located about 20 minutes walk from the main attractions in Edinburgh, in an area with a reasonable choice of restaurants. The hotel itself was fine, the room was clean and spacious enough, and the bed was comfortable. One disappointment, however, was the restaurant - which was okay for breakfast but our dinner there the first night was poor.

We always stay at this hotel as it is very well located if you are travelling to Edinburgh with a car! Very good room, excellent bar and breakfast always efficiently served! Slight issue with a towel rail and a chilly bathroom but having been told it didn't work, mysteriously it was on next time we went back to our room! Very nice staff and a friendly welcome always.

Lovely staff and a nice quick check in. Clean room and perfectly sufficient for what we needed. The bed was incredibly comfy. Our room was at the back (37) and was very quiet. Loads of hot water and plenty of power in the shower. Excellent breakfast with a massive choice. the Bircher Mueseli was fab! There wasn't much parking at the hotel but plenty on street, however only two hours at a time. Free after 6 on a Saturday night though and all day Sunday which is handy.

We had a great autumn weekend in fantastic Edinburgh, enjoying sunny weather and an amazing city. The stay at BW+ City Centre Bruntsfield was really good. Reasonable distance to city centre, old and new town (just a couple of minutes walk). It's a cozy and friendly hotel with really nice and modern rooms. The service offered at the hotel was really good, served by an always positive staff. I could really recommend this hotel for a nice stay in Edinburgh. /Jorgen

The Bruntsfield is excellent. It is away from the very centre of Edinburgh, but within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile and Princes Street. Since there is on-site parking we were able to leave the car and explore the city on foot. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are reminiscent of a thriving village with a very good mix of shops and restauarants and across the road there is a park that allows access by foot to the city centre almost exclusively by parkland. We had a beautiful ... Read more

I'm 50/50 about this place ( I usually stay at the Caley off Princess St ). The parking is very hit and miss, no pun intended. The breakfast with haggis and black pudding is top notch but the WiFi is just dreadful. I couldn't actually connect to my VPN for more than a minute or so and then it was so slow I just gave up, despite the staff trying their best. The result was that I had to work on my day off just to input data that I usually input in the evenings. It's a compromise .... a good break... Read more

Spent 2 nights here so we could attend a conference at the nearby Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Really convenient - only 10-12 minutes walk away. Room was a good size, comfortable and quiet with a nice bathroom. Plenty of tea making materials plus biscuits replenished each day. Breakfast was fantastic - try the Full Scottish! Good free wifi in room. Could do with a second lift or one specifically for staff use.

Had no problem parking in the hotel grounds - a real bonus in Edinburgh. Room was large and quiet. Very clean, as was the bathroom. We did not eat in the hotel, apart from breakfast, which was superb. Great range of breakfast foods from cooked to fruit. Staff were attentive and polite. Enjoyed a drink in the bar, prices were fair compared to London hotel prices. I would recommend this hotel without reservation.

For: Near restaurants and pubs and opposite a park. Just 1 1/2 miles from Princes Street. Quiet, clean, warm, with helpful staff and lovely rooms (at least the ones I've stayed in) Against: Set your mobile phone alarm, the alarm calls don't always happen, but nothing else I can think of. Breakfast was probably good, but I didn't get to find out (see above).

I'm late in getting around to my review, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to praise this welcoming little property. We arrived very early to Edinburgh the weekend before a business trip, so found ourselves at the hotel around 9am. They could not have been more hospitable to us! Not only did they tag and hold our bags in a storage room until we were able to come back later and check in, but they also offered us complimentary tea and happily made us a recommendation for a breakfast place ...
