We booked this hotel online on the same night of our stay and were really pleased with the room...a deluxe two room suite for 55 ,what's not to like.
The Original Raj Hotel
Friendly staff, good location, lovely rooms.
A Low budget Bangladeshi hotel
I was told that the accomodation booked for me was in their Apartment and not in the main hotel.
When I visited the apartment, it was horrific. It doesnt deserve even 20% of the amount which I paid. I immediately conveyed my displeasure to the staff, and thankfully since there was some cancellation they accomodated me in the main hotel itself. The main hotel was also very average but its far far better than their so called apartment.
I really liked this hotel, they where very help with all my questions and helped when I had a problem with a tour group.
the only thing was that my side of the bed was very creaky but it didn't disturb my sleep because we had very packed days. breakfast for perfect, the atmosphere and decorations where wonderful and perfect distance to the city centre and zoo!!.
A mixed review for the Raj Hotel
For what you pay the Raj Hotel isn't too bad and for a short city break it offers a comfortable stay.
Its within easy walking distance to the city centre and with a bus stop right outside its no problem getting around.
Good points to the Raj: Room was clean and tidy. When spoken to the staff were helpful and polite. The basic breakfast was adequate to set you up for the day.
Not so good points to the Raj: Staff could really work on their customer service skills to make guests feel more welcome. Although the bed in our room was made each day and the bin emptied and changed we were not given fresh towels each day and had to ask a member of staff for more toilet paper when the one roll we were given ran out. On one of the nights during our stay some guests stayed in the room next door luckily it must have been unoccupied the previous nights as it quickly became apparent that the walls are very thin. so if you are a light sleeper and do not enjoying people singing when they return from the pub on a Saturday night this is not the hotel for you. Also with no car park at the Raj it offers little for those who drive. Having been our first stay in a hotel in Edinburgh I would not stay at the Raj Hotel again. Next time we would pay a little bit more money for somewhere with better customer service, better room service/laundry service, a more varied choice of breakfast, better sound proofing in the rooms and a car park.
Nice friendly hotel, easy access from Haymarket and bus stop pretty much outside.Friendly layed back staff and nicely done rooms.
If you want something different from bland chains and sterile rooms then i would recommend the Raj.
Always good service
Very warm and comfortable bed
