We have stayed at this hotel several times and each time found the staff very friendly. The hotel is right in the city centre so is idea for visiting Edinburgh. They have no parking but there is secure parking near the John Lewis store, 24hours, and about 20 minutes away. The rooms are not that large but practical with all...

This hotel is a revaluation! Such a beautiful and well run boutique hotel in the heart of Edinburgh. The staff were knowledgable and we were given a great Scottish welcome at reception! The room was classily decorated with a hair dryer, GHD and iPod! I recommend the margarita slush puppy's at the cocktail bar. Overall couldn't be happier.

I recently stayed at Rick's was really impressed with its quaintness and quietness in the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms were perfectly sized and had all the necessary mod cons. Staff were always eager to help and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Than you for your great review

This charming hotel is located in the heart of the city. For the same reason, it can get a bit noisy sometimes. Very nice experience. Many excelent resturants at a walking distance. One of the preferred landscapes for tourists, the Edinburgh Castle, is just a few blocks away.

Arrived earlier than the check-in time but we asked if we could have our room early as we had to be at a graduation for 2.30, the staff made every effort to assist and we were allocated our room in plenty of time to refresh and change.

A very friendly greeting from the check in staff in a central location to the city centre. I opted to get a taxi from the station as it was a hot day and I had heavy luggage. The taxi cost £6. The room was immaculate and was spacious and had all the facilities that you would need. The staff were...

We got a friendly greeting from the staff and the room was clean and comfortable, albeit on the small side. The location is excellent, close to the centre of Princes St. OK value for money, and a nice bar and restaurant downstairs (although it looked a bit upmarket for us so we ate at the pub down the street).

Thank you for your review. I'm very sorry you didn't manage to eat with us, as we have a great menu with lots of options for all. We are right in the city centre, so unfortunately we can be affected with street noise. Thank you again for your review

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
