Very friendly and helpful staff

Would recommend Tue, Dec 29, 2015
My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at The Place. One thing that was very helpful to us and appreciated was that even though we were checking out to go on a tour to the Highlands, they allowed me to store my very large suitcase at the hotel for no charge. It was very helpful as I would have had to lug this suitcase with me. I was able to get my luggage when we returned from the Highlands. The staff was very nice as was the hotel.

Ideal location but not 4 star accommodation

Would not recommend Wed, Dec 16, 2015
Warm welcome on arrival by friendly staff. Bags taken to room because this hotel doesn't have a lift! Ordered a meal on the 1st night had to eat in residents lounge because restaurant in use for a Christmas party. My steak meal was adequate but my wife's beef contained a lot of gristle. Breakfast was poor. The pre cooked hot buffet Scottish breakfast was disgusting - best to order freshly cooked if you can. 2nd day of our weekend stay housekeeping did not clean our room or change towels in the bathroom. We paid extra for larger rooms but not worth the extra money. Hotel is ideally situated at the end of the line for the tram from the airport and also close to Princes street. There's a premier inn due to open just down the road in 2016 - I think we shall go there next time we visit Edinburgh. In summary the Place hotel is a 3 star hotel charging 4 star prices.

Couple trip

Would recommend Fri, Oct 16, 2015
The hotel is in the walking distance from Old Town and shopping area on Princess Street. The room was bigger than average and very quiet, which may not be the case if you are facing the street. Large, clean bathroom, likely recently remodeled. Internet was slow and frequently dropping connection. Hard mattress, which is a common issue in European hotels. Overall great hotel and I would stay there again.

Good Location, Great Value

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
Stayed here 2 separate nights. Good location in New Town. Tram stop is right outside, which is very convenient. About 10 minute walk to Royal Mile. It does get warm in the upper floors, so ask for a fan, which they have a limited supply of. WiFi was okay, slow at times. Staff is friendly and professional. Would stay here again.

Right next to the station, this 'Place' was exactly what I needed. Really spacious apartments but with the added benefit of great friendly staff and a delicious breakfast.
