        Individual guest reviews

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The location was superb as it was handy for all the main amenities Edinburgh has to offer. The room was very clean and the accommodation was comfortable.

          Breakfast arrangements were lacking.

        • Single
          7.0

          I arrived at 3.00 am and the staff was really friendly. I had a single room which was okay - good value for the money and quite big in size. There was however a strange smell in my room. I'd say it was bearable but it definitely was a minus. Still, it was a great deal and I would recommend it if you're looking for an alternative to a hostel. Breakfast is served in a café across the street where the staff is very friendly. Breakfast was okay - no more and no less.

          9.4

          Large rooms. Have stayed here before (without children) and one of the reasons we decided to stay here again, with children, was that we thought we'd get plenty of room for the children to play in the room. And we did!!!

          Not enough hangers for towels in the bathroom. Just one small closet.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Walking distance to Castle and Holyrood Palace. Loads of restaurants nearby. Location great. Rooms were clean and modern. Hotel recommended.

        • Single
          4.2

          The only good thing was the location. I'm surprised it's a 4 star hotel. Receptionist was friendly,

          I'm surprised it's a 4 star hotel. Room was very basic - hard, thin pillows, scratchy sheet and blanket, cheap looking toiletries, no safe. Breakfast across the road felt on the cheap - watery, warm orange juice and dried up bread and pastries. I stayed here because I couldn't get into the same hotel as the rest of my family across the street so the only good thing was that I was close to them.

          A clean and nice designhotel, well located in Edinburgh

          Very convenient location. Liked the relationship with Cafe Rouge for food. Comfortable and clean.

        • Couple
          8.2

          The hotel is well decorated. Room very clean and spacious. Staff polite and nice. Breakfast not in the hotel but just to have to cross the road in a French cafe! (funny as we are French!). Quality is very good. Nice stay but maybe a little bit too expensive...

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Good location, clean $ comfortable room, decent price and free wi-fi.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Location was perfect, Staff was wonderful, relationship with restaurant across was very nice.

          No lobby. No in-house food service

        • Couple
          9.6

          The location was perfect, the staff quite friendly and the room quiet, clean and very confortable. We could even drink tea in the room because there were tea-making facilities. The room was provided with tv, hair-drayer and ironing facilities, as well. Breakfast at the French reasturant right in front of the hotel was very good.

          We coudn't have dinner at the French restaurant in front of the hotel (you have 25% discount) because of technical problems of the restaurant.

        • Single
          8.8

          A great hotel - perfect for a city break Superb location - within walking distance of shops and bars and the old town High standard of accommodation - very elegantly decorated, maintained to a high standard; bedroom was very comfortable and bathroom modern and very clean Receptionists polite and helpful - one receptionist spent some time googling bus times Breakfast - the standard of food was good

          Small niggles that let down its otherwise deserved 4 star status - very basic toiletries in bathroom, had to haul own luggage downstairs to luggage room, breakfast service somewhat slow (in restaurant across the road)

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Location

          Breakfast and service at Cafe Rouge is very average.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Went to Edinbugh for the Festival and Frederick is perfectly placed to walk to many venues, although it's off the hustle and bustle of Princes Street. Lovely and clean. Room had everything one could need including a fridge.

          A rather clinical atmosphere with very little 'people' contact. Although eating across the road at Cafe Rouge was not inconvenient, it did rather slow us down as the restaurant seemed to be unable to cope efficiently with the number of people at breakfast. Consequently, service was very slow and breakfast took longer than desired.
