Faser Suites Edinburgh

The pictures on the internet made the rooms look way bigger than they actually were. I thought the suites would have a kitchen but they only had a sink and a microwave and a desk no kitchen table and chairs. We asked for a room with a view and were given a view of a brick wall but the hotel did check our request and then quickly changed us to a room with a great view yeah! The variety of teas and shortbread cookies were a nice treat. The room was not air conditioned but since the temperature outside was fairly cool we opened the windows and that worked. The free washing machines and dryers were a great asset, they were open 24 hours and they were spotless. There could have been a place to sit to wait for the clothes to dry. The hotel booked a tour for us that was very good. The hotel shuttle was super but did not run too regulary and did not run on weekends. We took the shuttle once to the Queen's Summer Palace. We booked the shuttle to the airport and that was fabulous as we could share the fare with other guests. Both drivers were very courteous and friendly. We were surprised that most pubs stop serving food at 9:00 pm and numerous restaurants near the hotel were closed at 10:00 pm. The hotel staff was very accomodating.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Marks and Spencer (hotel advised) has a ATM Machine that does not charge for use, you just have to pay what your bank charges which eliminated extra charges. If you don't take the route turning right from the hotel the shorter way is to go left from the hotel and then right take the first exit through the steps (not easy to see just ask in one of the stores)the other way the steps are extremely steep especially if you came back this way.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Check out the graveyard tour offered nightly at the St. Giles Cathedral. It's about 1 hour and 20 minutes and it's worth doing if you're into that.

Great Location, Wonderful Rooms!

The experience was wonderful. Fraser Suites is in a great location - right off the Royal Mile - and yet the room was quiet and restful.

Sleeping in a sauna

The hotel would have been fine, but our room was very warm and there was no way to cool it other than the fan they gave us that didn't work well. We barely slept, sweating all night. The staff guy was not helpful.

excellent facility

The location of the Fraser Suites can't be beat. Steps to the Royal Mile, easy walk to Princes Street and five minute walk to Waverley station. We arrived early, nine o'clock, and they let us into our room, an unexpected bonus after a trans-Atlantic flight. Everything about the hotel met and exceeded our expectations, we even had a great view of the old town and Calton hill.
