Pros: The staff was nice and helpful, the butler ironed my shirts, breakfast was made the way I like and delivered to my room. The room was large, a bit worn but very nice. A very pleasant surprise for the price. I would go again, we enjoyed it very much.

Pros: Excellent hotel & facilities. Modern, spacious interior. Complementary wifi, pool, + gym. Very helpful staff. Spa and breakfast are typically not included, but upgrade is possible for 90 GBP per day for 2 people. This includes access to the club lounge, the spa, unlimited drinks and snacks from 5:30-7:30pm, and breakfast in the lounge in the morning. If you wanted a greater selection for the breakfast, you could pay 5 GBP more per person for the breakfast at the One Square restaurant downstairs which includes a quite large selection of hot options and a large continental breakfast. All in all, the food and drinks were amazing. The spa was great - there is a heated hydropool and then multiple types of rooms around it: hammam, rock sauna, aromatherapy room, biosauna, etc.
Cons: The location is a little further from the city center than I initially anticipated, but it wasn't a huge problem. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the Edinburgh Castle and 20-30 if walking at a brisk pace to George St, Princes St, etc. where all the shops are. There isn't much to do around the hotel itself, particularly at night - it seems like a business neighborhood + convention center next door.

Pros: Rooms were lovely and beds very comfy. Bathroom very modern and shower was amazing.
Cons: Requested an iron in the room prior to arrival but it wasn't there.
The heating came on at 6am and was very noisy. This woke my partner and I up and we couldn't get back to sleep with the noise.
The tea/coffee machine in the room did not work.
Left my straighteners behind in the room but when I contacted the hotel to enquire about this they said they checked and they were not there. That is a mystery to me.

Near everything. Breakfast was inexpensive and the good way to go if choosing whether or not at time of booking.
Located in Old Town, this hotel is steps from City Chambers, St. Giles' Cathedral, and Real Mary King's Close. Princes Street Gardens and Greyfriars Kirk are also within 10 minutes.
Pros: Great location, superb interior design of the room. Very modern style

2016/2017 TripAdvisor Hall of Fame-Certificate of Excellence The Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh has been sympathetically designed to blend in with its' historic neighbours.

The hotel is popular with both business and leisure travellers as its' central location places it within easy walking distances of the main business, shopping and tourist areas.
Pros: A very centrally located hotel with a freindly and helpful staff. The room was of a fair size with all you would expect of a hotel of this standing.
Cons: Although the room was finely furnished the room lighting was poor.
Pros: Location. Friendly Staff. The new bar/restaurant area looks good however the only downside is the seating area near the bar soon filled up and even though there were empty tables on the lower floor level there seemed to be a reluctance to give these to guests who just wanted a drink.
Cons: The reception area is still going through refurbishment which meant long queues soon began to build up when guests began arriving in numbers which was an inconvenience to be honest. No doubt this will be resolved when the work is completed.
Pros: Location, cleanliness and the staff who welcomed at door. They have a great manner and seem genuinely want to please guests.
Cons: Reception staff need much more warmth, smile more and actually treat people as such. Rooms clean bu quite small for price - felt a little cramped at time.
Pros: Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.
Cons: Got bait and switched. Upon checkin was told that breakfast was included with the prepaid reservation. Great! Upon checkout was informed I owed something like £60 for breakfast. Tried to argue my case but had a train to catch and ended up with a "discount" to £40. Extremely shady. Will let my CC company take care of this.
Cons: There was no air conditioner in the room. The room I got was in the basement close to a very noisy load and unload area. Eventhough they had better rooms available, they asked me for extra payment in case I wanted a different room.
Pros: Location and reception areas were great.
Cons: Room was terrible. Really hot. Could not open window and AC not working. Staff unwilling to help.

Pros: This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Fraser Suites. I love the location right off the Royal Mile and right above Princes Street. Easy access to everything.
Cons: The bed was a bit firm and aggravated my sciatica. And the tub was higher than normal or I am short!!!
Pros: My wife and I got married in Edinburgh, and we stayed at the Fraser Suites. It's in an excellent location, just a few steps from the Royal Mile and a 10 minute walk from Waverly railway station. We had flowers delivered to the hotel while we took the train up from London; we called in advance the night before and the staff had no difficulties with dealing with the flowers; they were waiting in our room when we arrived. We booked a junior suite, which was nice; it has a living room with a little wet bar, and a bedroom with en suite. The room had tall ceilings, nice finishes in the bathroom, huge windows to let in lots of light; we really had the impression of being at a top-end hotel. Staff were professional and friendly. No hitches in checking in or out or with housekeeping. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Cons: As nice a time as we had at this hotel, we did have two minor complaints: once, there was some mould in the tile grout in the tub surround and the caulk joint between the surround and the tub itself, which was a blemish on an otherwise great room. A somewhat bigger problem was that it was windy (hotel can't do anything about that, of course), and this is an older building with older windows; the windows rattled pretty badly at night, and I'm a light sleeper, so this kept me up. Had we stayed longer, I might have raised the issue with the front desk, and it might have been possible to fix the problem by just sticking a coin in the window frame, but it did spoil the experience somewhat.
Pros: The shower
Cons: Noise from the neighboring business disturbed us all night. Room was in the "daylight" basement; small and closed in. Staff was condescending.
Pros: Appeared recently updated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location close to the train station and right off the Royal Mile. Large elevator. Bathroom very nice.
Cons: Bathroom shower did not have any kind of shelf for shampoo, facecloth, etc. No where but the floor to put anything. Safe did not work, but maintenance replaced it sometime our first day. Sliding doors for closet and refrigerator, microwave area did not work. Very difficult to move doors. They ground off aluminum off the track when moving doors. All of the lights in the room were either all off or all on. Window would not close all the way.
Located just off the Royal Mile, this boutique Edinburgh hotel is a 5-minute walk from Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle, and just steps away from St Giles' Cathedral.

Cons: Looking a bit tired. Desk in room had big scratch on it. Also, on a previous stay breakfast was on the top floor which was lovely. This time we were in the lower part of the ground floor restaurant. The continental breakfast choice was quite poor considering the price. The toast was merely warmed up bread and coffee wasn't particularly hot. My elderly parents in their 80s, who were also staying, were unable to shower as they couldn't get in or out of the very steep sided bath.
