Edinburgh Thistle Hotel
Edinburgh at Christmas
Thistle hotel was lovely to stay in, staff friendly & very helpful. They took time to ask if they could be of any help etc, ordering taxis and advising on bus routes. Continental breakfast covered all our needs, more than adequate. Recommend this hotel.

Very Good8.0
Lovely quiet hotel in the west end of Edinburgh, there are a few good bars within walking distance, and it is a pleasant area.

Edinburgh Thistle Hotel
Ok, but not worth £85 per night
I stayed in room 27. The room was very dated with 80’s melamine bedroom furniture. The extractor in the bathroom (which couldn’t be turned off) was very noisy and the shower was not so great either.

Edinburgh Thistle Hotel
One nights stay as down to see a friend in her end of year drama show. Hotel close to venue of show. First impression was very old fashioned and dirty “loud” hall carpet. Climbed the 4 flights of stairs to get to our room. First impression looked ok, although looking at photos of hotel on this site I think we had a very small room. Small double bed with a solid mattress. Bathroom tiny and shower in much need of replacing. Disgusting. Curtains did not reach floor so sun streaming in the room at crack of dawn. Skirting boards were filthy. Paper peeling off wall. Breakfast. Continental selection was very basic. Cooked breakfast was good but waitress did not get my order right. Sugar pourers were all choked with damp sugar and none of them worked. Staff were strange and not very friendly and welcoming. Bar closed at 10.30 and we were told to leave the lounge! Won’t be recommending or returning

Needs a refurb! but pleasant and good location.
Needs updating, staff pleasant, rooms more like a guest house. Breakfast ok. Location good. Room was warm in a cold winter. Bed clean and comfortable.
