So quiet in a noisy town. Friendly staff and good breakfast.

Excellent breakfast. Room was very clean. A little difficult to find since entry was in back and the words Leonardo Boutique Hotel were on the bottom of the sign in smaller print. We were told that a street entrance may be open soon.

it was a good hotel, my room was a littke small as the roof was slanted though

Every member of staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Good breakfast and comfortable room, though the shower is difficult to operate. Conveniently located close to Old Town and the University of Edinburgh. Free wifi works well, although it was down for two hours on one of the days I stayed. I would stay here again.

Very well situated for our purposes. Clean, Spacious and very comfortable room. The staff was exceptionally accommodating. Elena and Ron at reception were so friendly and helpful in many ways. Ideal place to stay when visiting Edinburgh!

The staff was sooo helpful with helping us locate where we needed to go in an unknown city, anytime day or night with questions, and cabs!! They were wonderful and helped us feel safe😄

The best hotel of our UK stay. The room was large enough, the walls were thick enough that we didn’t hear the baby next door. The staff take care to keep the place very clean and everything was newer. The center of Edinburgh, including Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street Gardens, shopping and pubs were all very nearby. The radiator heater worked very well with the Edinburgh cool weather. The mattress could have been more plush (aching hip from side sleeping) but we had a very comfortable stay.

Good breakfast, comfortable bed and clean room. The walk to sightsee was 10 or 15 minutes and a bit hilly so if you're not up to that maybe try somewhere closer, but it was great for us.

The hotel location and hotel itself was perfect! Two out of the three front desk people were not pleasant or helpful. I was disappointed to see that the front desk employees didn't seem to care about our experience. However, there was one staff member who went above and beyond. She was so friendly and happy! It was nice to see.

it was a very good experience to stay at the Edinburgh City Hotel. I had a very comfortable room and the help at this hotel was OUTSTANDING. I will definitely stay there again and recommend to Friends

The hotel is perfectly placed to enjoy a large amount of what Edinburgh has to offer, including the Castle, which was a 10-minute walk from the hotel. It's surrounded by a huge variety of restaurants, and the Sainsbury's Local and Tesco Express, a mere 3-5 minute walk from the hotel, will be of special interest to bargain vacationers: These provide very cheap, very quick delicious breakfast of pastries on your way out to enjoy the city. Staff is very friendly (even when arriving at 11:30 at night!), and the room was very clean and comfortable. Literally the ONLY thing that did not exceed my expectations was the Wi-Fi: A consistent signal was nearly as elusive as the storied Nessie of the mysterious Loch Ness. Still, not really a problem if you're out enjoying Edinburgh all day!

It’s well located in city center close to edimburg castle and the most important city places. Great breakfast
