Returned guest. High class hotel but toiletries are not as good as before. All Edinburg hotels charge are way more expensive than before pandemic.

A very old-fashioned hotel, full of Scottish style. Personally I don't like it very much. The location is perfect, just out from the train station and next to the commercial street. It is convenient for eating and shopping. It is within walking distance to several major attractions. Edinburgh is originally a place for slow travel.

The appearance of the hotel is very beautiful, the interior decoration is warm and elegant, the facilities are complete, clean and sanitary, and the service is enthusiastic. It is a great experience and I will stay here again if I have the opportunity.

Very good hotel. Compared to hotels in London, the environment and price are worth it.

The location is very good. It's just outside the train station. The room is also good. The breakfast is also delicious. The service is very good and very welcoming. It's very close to the attractions and can be reached on foot. I will choose this place again next time I come to Edinburgh.

This is the most satisfying hotel in this trip. I hope I can stay a few more days next time. The hotel has a beautiful appearance and the rooms are large and Scottish-style. Compare the prices of five-star hotels in London that cost only one, two, and one night The Balmoral 5k per night is well worth it! It's also very close to Waverley Bridge, just on Princes Street. Nothing to say about the location
