We were given a room in the fourth floor without elevator. We are seniors and had to take the luggage up by ourselves. It was extremely difficult and even dangerous. Orbits need to doo something to alert senior people of this issues before we book, or allow to book those rooms that are only one floor up or down. It took a lot of the enjoyment of the visit to Edinburgh.

Nos hospedamos en un cuarto para 4 personas y quedamos gratamente sorprendidas. Es una habitación muy amplia (doble altura, 3 camas, 1 sofá, televisión, y un baño con ducha y bañera)... el desayuno estuvo bien, y la ubicación es excelente muy cercana a tiendas y transporte. Recomendable

The Ballantrae Hotel is a great place to stay in Edinburgh. The hotel is a short walk from Waverley Station and close to all the sights in Central Edinburgh. The hotel is extremely clean and comfortable with very comfortable beds, great shower with a rain head, TV, and a wonderful staff. Have stayed here twice and highly recommend it.

I was going to book a place in the old town, but its way too expensive and rooms look ok. But this hotel is only 5 mins walk to the old town and have a great view to the bay. The room and staffs are amazing and affortable price.

Had an excellent stay at a very reasonable price. The room/s have all been refurbished, are comfortable and clean. Some rooms have good views, but be prepared to walk up stairs. The breakfast was excellent. The location is very good. There is parking and free wi fi. The staff are great.

Ballantrae is a clean and simple hotel, the staff was very friendly as well the room was clean, simple and comfortable.
