Old Waverley Hotel, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Great but be careful which room you stay
Great location for access to the train station, castle etc but noise in the room we were allocated a the side of the hotel (406) was dreadful from midnight right through to 4am with bin lorries, street clearing, bottle emptying. Only had a one night stay but would have had to move if longer.

You'll love Edinburgh and The Old Waverley Hotel
The location couldn't be better. To be right in the heart of downtown and with a view of Princes Street and the Scott Monument and Jenner's was the best. It was convenient to walk everywhere or take advantage of the Hop On/Hop Off Tours. The entrance is a little obscure at first, being tucked in among the shop windows, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is grand. Wish we could have a history of the hotel that is printed on the dinner menus. That history adds to its marketing value and in patrons making their choice. Put it out there on the internet. .

Warm rooms.
Some parts look a little tired, room was very warm with no aircon which makes it hard to sleep in warm weather.

Beautiful old hotel in the city center. Fabulous location across the street from the Scott Monument and National Gallery, and very convenient to the Edinburgh Castle and Royal Mile. Very friendly, attentive staff. Comfortable accommodations.
