We'll always have Picardy Place

The most delightful stay. If you wanted to study how to do urban boutique hotel well, 12 pp sets a new standard to which everything else is comparing unfairly. Sumptuously appointed, luxuriously furnished, character, style and friendly staff. Wish I could move this hotel around with me.

Great Hotel!!

I was very surprised with this hotel. It was very spendy for 4 nights but very much worth it. It is just outside of the old town and maybe a 5 or 10 minute walk to the train station. I didn't realize that I had one of the Executive Suites (Loch Lych) until I arrived. It was extremely nice and very classy! It had everything you could need if you just wanted to stay in the hotel your whole trip (but why would you? Edinburgh is such a cool city!). The only issue that I had was the wi-fi wasn't very dependable and that was my only means of communication. Otherwise, STAY HERE! IT'S WORTH IT!! Pamper yourself on your vacation.

Excellent Hotel in Edinburgh

We had one of the rooms on the top floor. Absolutely beautiful! Very clean, quiet, with modern décor. Bed was great. Room was very comfortable with a large screen TV and nice lighting. Bathroom was amazing. Staff was very nice and helpful. Close to restaurants, bars and a small grocery around the corner. We only stayed there one night. Wish we could have stayed much longer. Side Note - There is no elevator (like many hotels in older historic buildings in Europe) and this particular room was 4 flights of stairs up. Well worth the walk, but if you can't handle the stairs, this would be an issue.

Really good base for an Edinburgh weekend

We stayed 3 nights during the Fringe and had a fantastic introduction to Edinburgh. The hotel looked fab when I found it on the net - but I have to say it didn't quite match the "boutique hotel" experience I'd been expecting. I may be splitting hairs - and the staff were superb! - but there were things about the room that annoyed me when i expected everything to be perfect. There must have been 8-10 light switches - half of them appeared to do nothing whatsoever. I searched and searched for a reasonable bedside light - but it was either too dim to read or full illumination. The rainforest shower was great - but never really got hot. As I say I'm probably splitting hairs - I got an 8.5 out of 10 experience when i was hoping for 10. Edinburgh is a fabulous place though. Do the Fringe!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Across the road from the hotel is The Conan Doyle bar, a relaxing establishment which has some of the tastiest burgers you will ever have.
