We have stayed in this hotel before and will do so again. The location is absolutely ideal, just a short walk from Waverley Rail station and on Edinburghs main shopping street with easy access to the gardens and the royal mile. We have always found the rooms clean and tidy with tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We also have breakfast at the in house restaurant as we love the buffet style dining and think it is very good value for money. All in all a great place to stay and highly recommended.

Dear Guest, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at Mercure Edinburgh City Princes Street Hotel. It is always helpful to receive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

Check in was easy and staff very friendly. The room was a lovely balcony room with amazing views of Edinburgh Castle. It was clean and kept clean throughout our 4 night stay. Ensuite was quite small but clean and plenty of hot water. Lovely shower. Breakfast was very good quality, plenty of choice and staff attentive and they cleared away dirty plates very quickly.

We stayed in the standard room on the fourth floor. The floors were worn and coming up at the walls. The furniture was flaking. The smell was damp and stale. The bathroom was like a pub bathroom.

Brilliant stay

Was upgraded to a beautiful room overlooking Princes Street. Staff were very attentive and could not be more helpful . Breakfast and dinner were very good. Overall a very pleasant stay and will hope to visit again.

Public rooms are great - refurbished and stylish but our room was very tired and, in particular, the bathroom - which was small, tired and over grouted - felt grubby and delapidated. Disappointing. Staff were generally very friendly and obliging

very good

Caroline G. Families - 18/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a lovely stay with you, room was ni e and very peaceful. I do however think the rooms themselves dont reflect the restaurant or reception area which has obviously had a refurb, I think the rooms could do with a spruce up especially the bathroom. But overall value for money was excellent.

Central location within walking distance to a host of amenities.

Connor G. Couples - 16/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. The superior castle view room was absolutely amazing and lunch the next day in the restaurant was one of the best fish and chips I’ve had. Staff were all so accommodating and nothing was a bother at all. All I’ve done is tell my family and friends how good a stay I had since I’ve been back and can’t wait to return again.

Well located

Lindsey S. Families - 16/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was fine, comfortable and warm. Beds ok but on wheels so had a mind of their own sometimes moving around room. Bathroom drastically needs updating, huge crack along top of cistern and overall a bit shabby. Bar and restaurant lovely just update your bedrooms and I’d have updated this to a 9 or 10 due to value and location.

Beautiful view and wonderful breakfast.

A lovely stay despite a rather rickety level access shower. Kind staff although the reception seemed to be rarely staffed.
