The hotel was nice, clean and in a great location. I was disappointed to find that there was no room service available and that the "store located in the lobby" that they advertise is actually a little grocery store at the back of the building. I'm sad to say that the young woman that checked me in was not very friendly. I had checked in at night so upon check out, I wanted to verify with the girl at the front desk where the entrance to the car park was located. She advised it was behind the hotel and when questioned (I remember approaching the hotel from the front when leaving the car park) she said, "No, there is only one entrance." with a bit of attitude. I followed her directions, which were wrong, and it turns out I had been right. She apparently did not the car park had 2 entrances. I usually enjoy my stay at Marriott but, needless to say, I was not left with a great impression.

We stayed in the hotel with family and friends and found the hotel to be in a good quiet location, the rooms were very clean, and the staff extremely friendly. Most staff is Eastern European and really eager to please. Beware of leaving your car in the loading zone as this is a no park area. We fell into the trap and had to pay a ticket.

We were in Edinburgh for a brief weekend visit and took advantage of a Marriott sale to book 2 nights at the hotel. It's a very nice Residence Inn, with good options for breakfast and very close to the university. It is within walkable distance of the Royal Mile and the Old Town and has many restaurants around. It is more of a business area that is not active at night (especially during the weekends), but it was safe. Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were large and clean (we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite from the standard room). All in all, great stay for a great price.

Great hotel, fantastic location, and phenomenal value. I was here visiting the University of Edinburgh, and the hotel was very close. The neighborhood is very safe, and in the heart of the old town area. There are a ton of great pubs and restaurants close by. Can’t wait to come back.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days before moving on with the rest of our trip and it was a great stay. The rooms are large with a nice size kitchen, full size mirror, desk, sitting area and comfortable beds. The bathroom has a nice shower and all the amenities you need. The breakfast is great and the little workout room has all you should need. I would recommend for a short or long stay. Walking distance to everything and in a safe quiet area.

We had a fantastic time and we were well looked after by the staff. They made our anniversary stay special and the location prvoided a great base for our city exploration. Spacious and clean rooms in a very modern and safe location. We will definitely be returning again!

We went to Edinburgh as my partner had a business meeting. As it was at this hotel we chose to stay there for the weekend as it was the easiest option. It was a great location. We took a taxi from the airport which was about £20. If you don’t mind a 15 min walk you could take a bus but with luggage that would have been a big of a pain. Just a 15 minute walk from the castle and the Royal mile. There are some great shops and museums within easy reach. It’s located in the quarter mile area which is quiet on the weekend. There is a lovely coffee shop around the corner, which is well worth a visit. I was pleasantly surprised by the room itself. It was a good size, clean and modern. It had a small kitchenette and the bathroom was adequate. It was a wetroom, which is not my favourite style but I think we had a disabled access room. Big full length windows let lots of light in to what could have been a dark and dreary room as the hotel is surrounded by tall buildings. Breakfast is complimentary for every guest and served 7-11 which is great. It is buffet style and hot and continental food and drinks were available. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel has a good location rather close to Edinburgh Castle and a 15-20 minutes walk from Waverley bridge where the airport bus 100 has its final stop. You can also take a hop on hop off bus from Waverly bridge. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite, which was spatious, well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was good and included in the rate. The staff was very kind and helpful. There is a Sainsbuy Local very close if you would like to buy food or drinks and also several eateries and pubs.

This hotel is perfect for a city break. It’s a short walk from all the main attractions and I love, love, love the whole apartment feel each room has! As the rooms offer cooking and cleaning facilities and are pretty large by any major cities standards, I would say they are perfect for family breaks as well as couples. We arrived a fair while earlier than check in time, but the staff were understanding and accommodating and arranged for us to have access to a room early – always a nice touch! There’s a nice Chinese restaurant just around the corner from the hotel, give it a try if you arrive late and tired or have walked so far in a day that you’d rather not go wandering too far for a meal. Starbucks and Sainsbury’s are two minutes away for stocking up. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again.

Family group of 9 stayed here over New Years. The hotel was clean and new with a kitchenette. Good Wifi in room and reception. Nearby supermarket for food and snacks. Great location near Uni and very quiet. Short walk to city centre. Car parking nearby expensive but you do get 20% disc.
