About the hotel
Our building dates from 1860, when built amongst the last of the New Town. We are Grade 2 Listed , which means sadly we cannot install a lift and there's a LOT of stairs, great if you are into exercise, but not so great if you aren't able bodied. Our founder was Eliza, who had spent her youth in Service, from Large Estates to Hotels to private residences.
She had vision, and was ahead of her time, when she converted our buildings from National Coal Board Offices in 1962, to an eclectic hotel with en suite facilities, TVs etc ; one of the first to do so in Edinburgh. Eliza had seen that the Ritz in London was founded by Cesar Ritz, who liked her had worked his way up , and with her sense of humour, she couldn't resist calling her hotel The Ritz! She wanted the hotel to remain as true as possible to its heritage, and as you look around, you will see a sympathetic conversion of an 1860 New Town Town House. Also it means, no two rooms are the same! And we have original cornices! It is a philopshy we like to continue in her memory, and we are in the process of some changes, which will take time, but we wish to remain true to her memory and keep it original & quirky!

Good location but needs upgrading
The room we were allocated was a good size.
The quality of the room was very outdated, pink tassel lampshades and poor quality bed linen. The duvet and sheets were very cheap feeling and thin. We stayed in a twin room and the single bed had no valance to hide the bed base. No lock on the bathroom door and the shower had no hot water.
The tv was the only modern thing in the room but we didn't watch it. If you're looking for a cheap hotel in a central location then it's perfect. The bar area was lovely and the barman very kindly called us a taxi.
If the hotel was to upgrade and be modernised I'd stay again, even if the price was to increase.
Very friendly staff, clean room
Very Nice and cheap hôtel in the heart of Edinburgh.
The staff has been extremely friendly and helpful. The fourniture in the room was à little bit outdated, but overall very clean.
Would stay again there.
