  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Absolutely beautiful property, well located and beautifully decorated and furnished. I had to check in to three different rooms, however, because the air conditioning was down in the hotel and no one told me that's why the rooms were so stuffy. Ultimately they gave me an upgrade to a room with large windows that opened, and everything was fine. Very gracious staff and one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever visited.

    Overpriced Experience for the Quality

    This hotel was priced starting at the $250 night plus tax, but the room we received was disappointing. It had a sloped ceiling with two skylights but no other windows. The bathroom was so small you could not enter if so one was using with extremely small low sink. The breakfast had a limited fresh fruit selection with no fresh blueberries, cantaloupe or strawberries. There were no waffles, pancakes or crepes on the menu and the service was poor and slow. The location is too far from the palace or The Royal Mike to walk. This will probably be my last Kimpton experience.

    Excellent hotel and service. Location was very good for my needs. Assigned Room 445, less than ideal as under slopped roof with noisy unit (AC?) outside that disrupted sleep. Would definitely stay again but check out assigned room first. EE

    Walking distance to Royal Mile. Right beside Rose St. which is a nice little shop/restaurant area. Pool/sauna/steam room are perfect at end of day. Very clean and lobby/restaurant is excellent

    Wonderful location. Boutique hotel with great amenities. lovely bright welcoming atrium for breakfast, a gym, and adjoining restaurant. off posh George St and v close to Princes st. Nearby Starbucks, Pret a Manger and numerous eateries. View of the castle, walking distance to National Gallery and shops. The room is small for 2 people but roomier than most European hotels. Bathroom modernized with walk in shower, but washbasin a little worse for the wear. Staff very friendly, and pretty efficient. Quite secure. Despite busy noisy restaurant below on a Saturday night, we heard no noise.

    The location was wonderful and bed was comfortable but it was so incredibly loud! All night doors kept banging and slamming. This seemed to be in large part due to the door handle design - they had to be pulled hard to close. Even the front desk staff are aware of this issue. The guests were fairly young and there was some partying noise one night.
