We booked a very last minute deal to Edinburgh and genuinely think it was such a great price for two nights in the capital. Nice modern bar, great service, nice rooms and great location. It isn't far regardless of some of the comments a 5 minute drive or taxi journey isn't that big of a deal. However the bars and...

The Malmaison Group very rarely fail to live up to expectations. The magnificent building in Leith is no exception. A free upgrade to a superior suite didn't receive any argument from my wife and I. Looking over the other recent TripAdvisor comments.... Yes, it's pricey. No, it's not in the heart of Edinburgh. But, go somewhere else if you want...

We stayed here for two nights in May 2017. The first impression of the hotel and staff was pleasant. Although the hotel is not very well situated for the city centre and all it has to offer, it is a good base if you wish to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. The room was clean but this is the first...

As a 4/3 star hotel, you would expect a certain level of facilities, as you get them in lower grade economy hotels as standard. NO in roof safe! NO air conditioning! A sash window, but only able to keep open with a book! Radiator on full blast, when it was 25degrees C outside! NO view, we overlooked a workshop. I...

Bar is nicely done. Plenty of seating now. Prices aren't cheap so don't expect your bar bill to be low. Nice atmosphere. Music doesn't match but I liked it all. Not sure others will. I'll definitely be back :)

Thoroughly enjoyed a birthday Sunday lunch for my mums 80th. The girl at reception gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. The private room was set up beautifully. Mum was made to feel very special and the two lovely waitresses went out of their way to make sure that we were all very well taken care off. The...

The Malmaison chain is still a good choice for a city break, and the Edinburgh hotel has the usual well-appointed bedrooms, decent restaurant and usually friendly and professional staff. But there are one or two niggles that suggest room for improvement: the bathroom I had was tired and becoming shabby, with chipped paintwork, old tiles and surprisingly poor lighting. Good...

Stayed on business and was very pleased with how I was looked after. The building is very impressive and in a good location just a short distance from the City Centre but still close to the Playhouse and in a very attractive area. The rooms may need a little up grading but it was clean and very comfortable. The staff...

On visiting Edinburgh for work I booked this hotel for a Monday night with what appears to be a very good rate compared to advertised. There was plenty of car parking space at the back of the hotel. The building looks very impressive and is in a really nice setting with plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants in the area...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's the mother of all Malmaison's. The former house of ill-repute now has a reputation that's second to none, and it's also just a short taxi ride away from Waverley Station. Malmaison Edinburgh bides at Leith (as they say up here), just a stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia, but offering far more funky luxury. Yes, when you want exciting hotels in Edinburgh, this is the King, not the castle. Our Edinburgh hotel puts you close to all of Edinburgh's cobbled splendours, incredible shopping and famous galleries. Then it's back to Mal for Scots dining with a twist, a fine selection of single malts and mojitos in the bar and then back to the slinkiest and most spectacular rooms in the Scots capital. ... more   less
