Twelve Picardy Place

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice hotel, no elevator and we were on top floor but that was the only thing. Modern furnishings but still cozy! Great shower!

Had a great stay at Twelve Picardy Place. The people were friendly and helpful and the room was spectacular. I came back late a few nights and the buzzer system was a few minutes wait but that wasn't a big deal and I quickly got in and up to my room. Definitely will return when I'm in Edinburgh.

We requested a room off the street which was imperative as it's on a seriously busy street. The backside overlooks to outdoor patio bars but they close by 11:00 p.m. so it's not too bad. Our room was very nice, modern and comfortable (except for the huge t.v. at the very edge of the bed...not a bit t.v. fan). The staff was exceptionally helpful in giving us directions and a great pub/restaurant is across the street and many others nearby.

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.

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.

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.
