              5.4

              Great situation and refurbishmment looks great

              The room is too small, no where to sit apart from a bed that is too high off the ground and too short I'm only 6 foot tall and it was far too short. The shower in the bathroom was only suitable for you if you were under 5 foot 6 inches

            • Couple
              9.2

              We loved Nira Caledonia. From the moment we walked in and saw our beautiful room we were so excited to be staying there. The staff were all so friendly and it was a lovely experience. The best shower of my life - the rooms have a "rain shower".

              It is a bit further to walk than most hotels in Edinburgh - but this also means it is quiet. Lots of stairs to climb, which didn't bother us but might be a problem for some people.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              the bed was comfortable and plenty of hot water

              5* exec suite was a dissapointment broken glass on the drawer top and not even any treats to have with the b&b style tea and coffee b&q jacuzzi and no tv in bedroom area £390 for 2 nights gutted

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Staff were friendly

              The room was in the basement no outlook, felt very dark.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              close to the city center, nice staff

              the hotel has passed its best days, the shower was leaking, the wall paper was distroyed, couple of screws where coming of the wall,

            • Single
              7.4

              The staff were exceptionally helpful and the breakfast was very good.

              Nothing I didn't actually like but there is some scope for improvement. Room (No. 9) classed as 'small double' but would only be suitable for single occupancy (I was travelling alone so that was ok).Very comfy bed and excellent pillows but did fall down a little on the shower room - no hook for towel, no toilet roll holder, no shelving or anwhere in the shower to put soap, shampoo etc. Full size kettle but too large to get under tap to fill! One heater wasn't working so room a little chilly. Mirror in awkward spot with no easy access to electric sockets (for hairdryer etc.) - I had to shift the armchair. No full length wardrobe - just an oriental 'armoire' with hanging space but it meant my full length coat and skirt were screwed up.

            • Couple
              9.2

              We had a fantastic stay. The hotel is in beautifully restored town houses which really retain the Georgian period's features. Lovely location too with lots of private houses and garden squares away from the busier areas of the centre.

            • Couple
              6.6

              The entrance lobby and dining room were very impressive, and the hotel staff were extremely accomadating. Breakfast was excellent.

              The room we booked was extremely small (as was the bathroom). The room contained a lot of furniture which was far too big for the size of the room! I feel the price was too high considering this major factor.

            • Couple
              10.0

              We have stayed there many times, very accommodating and good location and price.

              It has now changed, we have always had a full English breakfast included in the price, this time it was not the case, not even Continental breakfast was included, this was a shame and may stop us staying again.

            • Single
              10.0

              The interior design is simply stunning, giving you a real feeling of luxury. Very Unique..

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              We loved the ambiance of this hotel. The staff was great and the rooms were tastefully decorated. We would stay there again for sure.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Lovely hotel, great location. Undergoing refurbishment at the time we stayed which was very disspointing as no restaurant or bar which we really did want. Other than that the hotel was very special and I'm sure ordinarily would have met all expectations.

            • Couple
              9.6

              The staff were excellent, very polite and extremely helpful, I would recommend the hotel highly and wouldn't hesitate to stay their again if visiting Edinburgh in the near future.

            • Single
              7.8

              Helpful polite staff, effeciently booked a taxi on time, pleased with a room upgrade on arrival

              Height of dining tables - too high for chairs

            • Couple
              8.8

              Had a huge room with a jacuzzi which was great. Breakfast was very good. Great place for a romantic break. It is about 1 mile to all the major touristy areas

              I was a little surprised that there was no mini bar fridge and that the safe had a key entry rather than setting your own code. We were at a low level but be warned that there is no lifts
