Our tour group put us up at the Waldorf Astoria. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Although the rooms are not large, they are cozy and the beds are really comfortable. The included breakfast was great.
We stayed for three nights whilst attending the Tattoo. Everything about this hotel was fabulous - as expected! However, what was NOT expected was the fantastic level of service we received. Every single member of staff went the extra mile - A HUGE 'thank you'...More

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian Scotland
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

It is worth the five stars. Some unreasonable guests have a misplaced sense of entitlement to quibble. The service at the Edinburgh Waldorf is superb and totally due to excellent management, staff training and recruitment.
