Perfect location

My wife and I stayed for two nights and I have to say despite the on-going refurbishment in some areas of the building, this did not detract from an extremely enjoyable stay. The reception staff were great, the dining room is a fantastic place to eat, full of character with excellent service. The Juniper bar prices were surprisingly good for a hotel and again bar staff were attentive. The bedroom was large enough, a comfortable bed, plenty of wardrobe space and bathroom was very well stocked with toiletries. Some of the higher number bedrooms are a bit of hike if you are elderly and have to carry cases up stairs (not much in the way of an elevator), but again there was assistance on offer from reception so no need to struggle. If I could offer one bit of advice it would be the installation of double-glazing as you look out on to the very busy Princes Street and hence will hear traffic and the occasional late-night reveller. But again this did not detract form our experience. Overall we would definitely go back again - perfect location for seeing Edinburgh's delights.

Great location

The location was great, so to was the staff. The Entrance to the hotel, reception and bar was lovely. Very clean and modern, however the rooms were not like this. The rooms were clean however they were very tired and old fashioned.

Perfect City Centre Location

Not only does the Royal British Hotel have the perfect city centre location it also has very friendly, helpful staff and spotlessly clean well appointed rooms. And all at a very reasonable price. In addition it also has Juniper bar with stunning views across the city centre and a very well stocked bar. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

overnight stay

We had a beautiful meal at the hotel, the room was basic but good enough for sleeping in. Great location for shopping and sightseeing. The staff were very friendly.

A hotel that cannot be recommended for anybody

One of the most unacceptable stays ever. We booked this hotel for convenience of location and expected basic comforts like clean room, good clean bathroom, 3 star not 5 star of course. First they get the booking messed up with with our request for one double room, one twin and given two twin rooms. Second, the bathroom in one room was minus a shower as the shower tap was removed for repairs and water coming out of the shower tap going all over. Though the manager was initially very helpful, he became extremely rude. First he said he didnt know that the bathroom was under repair and then said he cannot be responsible and suggested we go without a shower during our stay. When we requested that we were given another room and he suggested we use his personal room to shower. This was insulting and not acceptable as we were two girls and an attached bathrrom is what we paid for. Finally they offered a bathroom in a room which is not sold with kitchen fumes....we had to walk a few rooms to use the bathroom...... It was unbeleivable. We requested for another hotel. This manager became very rude after we refused to continue staying by using another room to shower. Next day while we were on tour, our bags were packed haphazardly (shoes and clothese put together) by housekeeping and we were asked to leave the hotel ungraciously in the middle of the night. When we wanted to discuss the matter, even the counter staff was exttemely rude and said they will throw us out. Of course the new hotel was far better and we had just about a 4-5 hours stay before we left for the airport. This hotel should be removed from the booking list as its sold on the pretence of having all the facilities but needs refurbishment really bad. Rooms are dirty and with bare minimum facilities. lights dont work, some of the pillows minus covers etc...... For regular travellers like us who experience 5 star to 3 star accomodation around the globe, this hotel would be ranked as the worst stay ever....... But baring this experience, we had a lovely two days in Scotland

The website gives you not the right information

I was at room 216. The most stupid room, i have been in my life. Dirty, old, little and no fresh air. The window couldn t open. Only the bar & restaurant are ok in this hotel. All the rest is very bad. I booked this hotel because the rooms looks nice, it was complete the opposite. Saturday morning 04.00 o clock, big fire alarm in the whole building. Everybody was out of his rooms. Nobody came to tell what was going on.. Also the next day, nobody could explain wat was going on. So don t book this stupid dirty hotel!
