Ballantrae Albany Hotel
Albany Hotel Edinburgh
Hotel was grand, nothing spectacular to be honest, they offer a very limited breakfast and the service from the morning staff left a lot to be desired at breakfast. Boutique Hotel might be an elaborate title for the Albany Hotel. B&B might be more fitting.

Wouldn’t stay again.
Room was far too hot and uncomfortable with no way to cool down. Toilet cistern took 30 mins to refill and was constantly loud.

Useful location but we were in a basement room which smelt damp. There was no control/thermostat on the heated towel rail which was cold throughout our stay. One bedside light wouldn't work which we reported within half an hour of arriving and it was finally fixed in the afternoon of our second day. There were no curtains to the bathroom or bedroom windows, only slatted blinds, the angle of which you couldn't alter. The staff were attentive, pleasant and courteous. It was supposedly 4* but was this self awarded? We have stayed in better appointed 2* hotels than this. We paid £301.98 for two nights which, for the quality and facilities offered, was outrageous.

Very Good8.0
Nice hotel - nice location. I had a single room and it was a decent size. I found the shower quite small and there was no fridge - but all round I would say that it was good value for money.

Great Location, but grubby and worn, overpriced
Really great hotel location. However it was a little worn and tired, didn’t expect to see stained pillows, damaged light fittings, electric shower cables hanging out of the TV for a hotel of this price.
