OK stay

Pros: Quiet hotel with good sound proofing of rooms.
Cons: Signage is poor and its not clear which building the hotel actually is.
Location: Good location plenty of restaurant's and bars.
Overall a good stay, but room was too hot even with window open. Room and bathroom a good size, but the shower screen is not movable so anyone with mobility issues would find it difficult getting in and out of the bath tub/shower. Breakfast was a continental style ( not much of a range) or for an extra £2 a cooked breakfast was available. We ordered the cooked breakfast (menu was varied), well cooked, portion size medium. Overall, stay was good but not outstanding. One other thing to look out for is that Tower Place is the official hotel address, but the parking is only accessed via Tower St.

Lovely hotel

Room was beautiful, but the heating was turned up too high to the point it was uncomfortable over night which resulted in not sleeping much! And no thermostat in the room to control it! Food in the hotel was beautiful! But there were far too many fish dishes on the menu so i had a burger as there were no chicken dishes, the burger was to die for! Possibly one of the best I've eaten! Great location only 10 minutes max from the train station and was in a quiet location! I would definitely stay again though as the room was clean and comfortable!

Sehr schönes Hotel direkt am Hafen. Gutm

Für uns leider nur ein Übernachtstop in Edinburgh; die Stadt hat viel mehr zu bieten, als man am einem Tag schaffen könnte. Das Hotel hat alles was man braucht und sehr freundliches Personal. In dem angegliederten Restaurant kann man sehr gut, wenn auch nicht unbedingt günstig essen. Der Hafen und die Innenstadt sind fußläufig zu erreichen und es gibt einen kostenlosen hoteleigenen Parkplatz.

Chaotische Zustände

Das Zimmer auf den ersten Blick war in Ordnung, wie von den Bildern erwartet. Das Bad war leider nicht so sauber, wie man sich das gedacht hat. Zudem waren den halben Nachmittag Reparaturen im Flur über die wir nicht informiert worden sind. Als wir am Abend uns etwas auf das Zimmer bestellen wollten, haben wir festgestellt das das Telefon nicht funktionierte. Nachdem ich dann etwas wieder durch den sehr kleinen etwas unstabilen Aufzug nach unten gefahren bin, kam kein Wort der Entschuldigung. War wohl nicht unüblich. Das schlimmste jedoch war das Frühstück. Es war für den Preis von 14/ p.P recht teuer, daher haben wir schon etwas erwartet. Das Frühstück war 0815. Ein paar Müslisorten, total übersäuertes Obst, Marmelade in kleinen Gläsern und etwas Brot. Also da hab ich für weniger Geld schon deutlich schönere Buffets gesehen. Zudem haben die Kellner in dem Raum so einen stress verursacht da sie mit 6/7 Personen ständig durch die Menge gelaufen sind. Wir waren zum Glück nur eine Nacht dort, hatte an dem Tag noch eine lange Reise vor uns und hatten extra das Frühstück gebucht um entspannt in den Tag zu starten... haben wir uns anders vorgestellt.

Fijn, luxe hotel

Malmaison is een mooi hotel in de wijk Leith in Edinburgh. Leith was vroeger een apart havenstadje en dat is te zien: Malmaison kijkt uit over het water en naast het hotel zit de straat The Shore, vol met leuke pubs en restaurants. Met de bus, die elke tien minuten vertrekt, ben je binnen een half uur in het centrum van Edinburgh. Dit is dus een prima hotel voor iedereen die graag een citytrip wil doen zonder middenin de stad te verblijven. Het hotel doet luxe aan, heeft goede service en hygiëne. Het is er erg rustig en het personeel is vriendelijk. Wel is het jammer dat de extra faciliteiten (het restaurant, de minibar en de wijn op de kamer) en bijvoorbeeld de roomservice vergeleken met de prijs van de kamer erg duur zijn.
