The Royal Scots Club Edinburgh, Edinburgh
Historically Interesting
The Royal Scots Club is rich in history and architectural interesting throughout the lobby, club and common areas. The dining room is quite luxurious. Unfortunately the rooms seemed a little lacking for what appears to be quite a posh hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean but the bed was not very comfortable. As well, we had two sleepless nights as our room was on the street side and the single paned windows original to a historical hotel were not at all soundproof. The breakfast however was delicious.

Great location, good balue for higher-end room.
We stayed for one night. This is a great location, very nice, high-end accommodations. Everything was great *except*: The windows are single-pane and were noisy and drafty facing a busy street; the hallways are like a rabbit warren; narrow and winding with numerous doors - not good if there is an emergency; the key cannot be kept when leaving - need to check in with the front desk on each departure/return from/to the hotel. Very nice breakfast, loved the large rooms, high ceilings, and luxurious washroom facilities.

A comfortable and friendly place to stay.
The Royal Scots Club is a fabulous hotel. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and our waitress was always cheerful and friendly. All of the people at the Front Desk were very friendly and extremely helpful. Natalia was great, especially with directions;she was so kind and personable. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and friendly place to stay while in Edinburgh.

I love the RSC stay here every time I’m in Edinburgh- its quiet comfortable clean and the people are super nice - rooms are very comfortable- location is fantastic - just a couple of blocks from George Street- love the New Town - this time I arrived at 3:30 am on a flight from Athens- they were expecting me- helped me with bags and gave me a late checkout- hot bath, tea and cookies and ready for bed in fabulous comfort- always ! Perfect after sailing for 10 days!
