Comfortable clean hotel

Three nights stay, ate at hotel every night, all very pleasant except for last night. Must have been a different chef as food bad and what were sold as premium sausages with haggis were definitely not. They were not to temperature and when the young barman was asked his reply was simply not sure.

Convenient

Our stay at this hotel was great. It is reasonably priced compared to some other more expensive hotels closer to the city. There is a city bus stop nearby, which was convenient as we didn't want to drive the car into downtown. Our room was about average. I believe this hotel was a rebrand from a Best Western and they were going through a phased renovation. When I do revisit Edinburgh again, I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

I used the hotel for my overnight stay before flying off. Close to the airport and was perfect for my stay. Free parking was an asset.

Edinburgh Capital Hotel

First night was tough , could not find the street finally asked some drunks coming out of the bars at 2 am and finally found it , street name missing 3 or 4 letters from name(street name not on GPS I purchased a couple days later , arrived around 2:30 am after terrible 30 hour trip from west canada and an overbooked flight , crashed in the not so comfy bed with only a bottom sheet and a quilt on top , was woken up early by what sounded like people dragging furniture but was so exhausted we managed to bear thru it , went out for breakfast and got a 60 pound ticket for parking where everyone else was parking , when we returned that evening we tried our keys but would not work , so back down to the desk for new ones , spent another night and was woken up at 2 am with pounding and more furniture dragging , I finally investigated the noise and found we were over a banquet hall in the hotel and they were putting furniture in storage closets , I went down to the desk to complain at 6 am and he said I should have phoned and they would stop , I explained my plight to him and he said they would stop ,he gave me a coupon for breakfast to appeize me that I was to pay 10 pounds ($20 canadian each for a continental breakfast which where I come from is free ,they did stop for half an hour so we got up and showered but did not have face cloths , when asked about the face cloths did not understand what we were talking about , I guess Scots don't use them , when we were leaving I asked for another room , they were hesitant so I had to demand it or I was finding another hotel and I told them I thought the coupon for breakfast was a slap in the face and did not appreciate it , they could not believe it was not a great gift for keeping me up 2 nights in a row , they did give us another room in the rear of the hotel and it was finally quiet but still the same uncomfortable bed(king bed is 2 singles put together) but in a much smaller room and in an area not easy to get to 2 man elevator , we tried the restaurant the next night and tried the Appetizer plate which had steak strips on it , fair at best , the next night we I tried a sirloin 8 oz steak , pitiful excuse for a steak as big as the palm of my hand and 1/4 inch thick and tough with a mushroom abot 3 inches across and disgusting looking and a little cup of fries for 23 pounds($46), my wife had the chicken , a few veggies and mashed potatoes pasty and bad tasting , after that we found a McDonalds that was a serious step up in quality No apology for keeping us up or having to move rooms All in all I reccomend that anyone looking at this hotel keep looking for another one "NO" I would not reccomend this hotel to a friend , an enemy maybe

pretty basic but a decent value

The floors were squeaky in our room. The carpets had some stains. Overall it really was a decent hotel but certainly not exceptional.

Good time

In a town where the dollar (£) doesn't go far, this hotel was a good value. While not cheap, it had enough amenities to make up for the price. Clean, in good repair, no real complaints. It's a 25 minute bus ride to the city centre and the bus stop is close to the hotel.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Get your food at Tesco before going into the city centre. The food at most restaurants leaves much to be desired and is quite expensive for what you get. Spend £3 on a sandwich and crisps at Tesco and walk away from the many vendors and cafés that will charge £2 for a can of juice in the centre.

Edinburgh trip

I loved the location, very picturesque. From the restaurant, you can look out towards the Forth of Firth (I think) and see the airport, but the views are spectacular. The room was nice and fit my needs as a lone traveler perfectly. The staff were very accommodating and made me feel very welcome. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Edinburgh.

Buy a day pass for the Buses. It was £3.50 and you can use it all day until midnight. The 26 bus will pick up by Rannoch Road and the 1 bus will drop you off right behind the hotel.
