The Rabble is a top choice for a few days exploring Edinburgh. Though the style is slightly quirky, checking in through the restaurant, the ambiance and staff make you feel at home. As you can expect from a city-centre hotel, there is some noise during unsocial hours from the outside but it's totally bearable. The rooms are well-equipped with everything you need for a couple of days, incl. hairdryer, straighteners, bathrobe etc. as well as complimentary nespresso coffee and tea in bed. I would recommend getting breakfast included; it's delicious and definitely worth the price! What makes the Rabble stand out is its staff - all of them (morning and evening) greet you with a smile. Thanks for a great weekend!

I do absolutely recommend this place, if you want to spend some days in Edinburgh. The Rabble is located right in the centre (easy to reach from the airport by tram with an additional 5 mins walk) close to most of the places you’ll like to visit. (On my opinion discovering Edinburgh by foot is the best way.) The room is nicely decorated and has everything you need (incl. a Nespresso-machine). Yes, it can be a little bit noisy in the mornings, but: for silence please do book in the countryside ;-) The staff (every single of them) is absolutely friendly, helpful and so nice! They give you the feeling of being home from home. (More than I experienced in some B&Bs!) They even carried our bags upstairs into the room! The breakfast ist simply great: nice options on a small menu (but big enough) accompanied by friendly staff makes the start into the day a really good one. Another great benefit of this place is the restaurant and bar. A perfect place to rewind after a long day out before going to bed.

Stayed 29/2-2/3 Overall great stay in a lovely quirky place. Bar staff were fantastic especially the guy working Saturday night and Sunday all day, made me a gorgeous not on the menu cocktail, lovely accent too. GHD hairdryer and straighteners in room, lovely bathrobes and towels. Really comfy beds and great curtains = great sleep! Great minibar selection. Negatives: wi-fi dreadful and next to no 4g signal in room. No bin in room. Bathroom needs updating and wasn’t spotless, hairs in bath and black mould along glass shower screen.

A smattering of rooms above the popular restaurant / bar. Bed was comfortable and staff were most obliging. No car parking but on street parking a 2 minute walk. Good selection of drinks and cocktails.

We stayed here for one night on dinner BB. The hotel itself was lovely and had everything you need and more. We were in room 10 and can honestly say like previous reviews the noise from the street did not bother us at all we only heard it in the morning when we were up getting ready. As it is a city centre hotel we expected some noise. Dinner was lovely with a glass of prosecco and bottle of beer included. Breakfast I would say was not the best as everything was deep fat fried but apart from that everything was great we would def return again. Hotel is in an ideal location. Only thing is there is no parking at the hotel the hotel offer a 50% discount on the NCP carpark which worked out at £15 for the overnight for us. The car park is around 10 minute walk from the hotel.
