Nordkvinnen Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

Together with friends we stayed 3 nights at this hotel in December. All in all we were satisfied with our stay, the place had some pros and some cons. Pros: very central located in Princes Street. Many shops, a short walk to the castle and the Christmas market just across the Street. Lots of restaurants and shops in the area. We had Classic bouble rooms with castle view, and we were all satisfied with our rooms, which were spacious and clean. Breakfast was great. Cons: One of us had problems with the toilet, that did not flush properly. The tap at the bathroom was really wierd, warm and cold water did not mix, but came in different jets out of the same faucet, either too cold or too hot! But we all loved our stay, and may be back!

Well located but tired hotel needs updating

Hotel is in a really good location. Staff are really helpful and friendly. Reception and dining room are lovely, but the rooms are very tired, old furniture, needs the paint work refreshing and is generally in need of some tlc

We always stay here when we visit Edinburgh....we love the location and the bar/restaurant area is gorgeous with a fantastic view especially when the Chritmas market is on. The rooms very clean and comfortable. Our only disappointment on our last stay was there was no fish & chips on the menu for evening meal which I was looking forward to as normally in the past so delicious . couldn't find anything else I liked on the menu so ate elsewhere.

Poor Value But Great Location

Small and shabby rooms. Great location and clean but definitely needs some love as taps hanging off sink and more scuffs than paint. Rooms aren’t in any way soundproof so you can hear everything from the surrounding rooms and they also have no air conditioning and are incredibly stuffy even in the middle of winter.

Well Located

Some staff members need to show respect. Others were good. Bathroom requires updating.
