Great hotel for the fringe

Would recommend Fri, Aug 21, 2015
This hotel is amazing. Right at the Three Sisters so ideally placed for the Fringe. Our room was massive and had the most amazing wet room. The whole place was clean and the maid service was top class. The room has a large flat screen and 30pin iPod doc. You can also plug a jack into use the speaker system. Free wifi was great as the mobile cell service wasn't great. Also, you get a Tunnocks Tea Cake in your mug which is a great treat at the start of the day!!

Fun holiday getaway

Would recommend Sun, Apr 26, 2015
I was visiting Edinburgh for a conference and decided to add a few extra nights to tour the city and enjoy the St. Patrick's Day holiday. The hotel is connected to a very lively and big bar, but as soon as you enter the hotel and your room, it's surprisingly quiet. The room was comfortable and well stocked, and the front desk staff went above and beyond to help my friend and I enjoy our stay. I am planning another trip soon and will be staying again!

Fantastic hotel to stay.

Would recommend Sun, Aug 4, 2013
The hotel is wonderful place to stay for anybody who wants to travel to Edinburgh. Great location. Just 3 mins walk to Royal mile. The room is very clean and tidy. Powerful shower. We checked in early morning and the reception girl Maria is very helpful. She booked a tour for us in a emergency basis, so thank you so much. Highly recommended to stay here. :)

Two sisters in The Three Sisters

Would recommend Fri, Mar 8, 2013
Thank you to a brilliant team staff, we where really well looked after and nothing seemed to be a problem for the hotel staff, even down to finding us some history on the Three Sisters( adjoining bar ) and more importantly putting us up for another night when we missed our flight home. Would definitely recommend The central Hotel and The Threes Sisters if you like it lively ( its not very noisy at all) and like people watching, if you are into the rugby stay here, has a huge outdoor screen, outdoor bars, under cover seating and heating all in an enclosed secured area, absolutely brilliant atmosphere. you should go !!

Dining

Grassmarket, Finnegans wake and Biddy Milligans are great Irish bars with live music.

Central Hotel

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 2, 2012
I would strongly advise not staying at this hotel - it's a very noisy, very crowded bar complex with a few rooms added on - fine if you want to party till 3 am but otherwise forget about getting any sleep here, and don't expect any sympathy from the surly staff - one to avoid!

Would recommend Fri, Sep 21, 2012
Just steps away from the Golden Mile! Clean bathroom with hot water and tropical soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Marshmallow chocolate, not on the pillow, but pretty darn close. Only wish WiFi reached the room because had to go to the reception for it.
