Dirty Room

While many guests have complimented the hotel on its cleanliness, others have complained that the rooms, in particularly the carpets, were dirty, while bathrooms were poorly cleaned between guests.

Noisy Nights

One of Novotel Edinburgh Centre’s perks is its proximity to the city however some guests found the hotel could be noisy at night, whether from outside their windows, other guests late at night of inconsiderate staff.

Limited Guest Parking

The hotel does have a visitors’ car park however space is limited Many guests arriving by car have had to seek parking off site, and often paying to do so Parking for guests is at a ‘per exit’ rate.

Expensive Breakfast

Elements Restaurant serves a hot breakfast each morning but many guests found it was over-priced for the mid-range quality on offer.
