Hilton is the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. It is 5 minutes from the train station and only a 2 minute walk from the royal mile. Our room was very comfortable, excellent air conditioning as well. Breakfast was very good as well with all dietary needs catered for. Even at its busiest time the breakfast ran very well. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Overall good stay although pricey . The worst part is the parking . The garage they suggest is 3-4 blocks away and difficult to find. We called the desk 3 times circling the area and were provided wrong directions each time .

I had selected a twin room as I was treating my sons to weekend in Edinburgh. When my sons arrived they wer provided with a queen bed and neither one of them is a small guy. The hotel did not have any twins available so the offer was misrepresented on Expedia.

The hotel was smack in the center of the Royal mile...but with that comes the crowds and the noise. I had an issue with the bathroom that never got resolved...which is a shame because the bathroom was spacious and well appointed otherwise.
