We stayed at the Novotel Edinburgh for my 40th birthday. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and even left me burthday cake and a lovely card in the room at check in!! The room was clean and modern and the bed very comfortable. Rooms were cleaned every day. The facilities were great!! Swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room all in good condition and the jacuzzi was very relaxing. Breakfast was amazing. Full selection of hot and cold food and even had a waffle maker!! The hotel location is perfect. Right in the city centre and limited parking is avaliable under the hotel so were were able to park up and walk everywhere to experience the beautiful sites of Edinburgh. All in all i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good quality, clean and comfortable hotel with access to all the major locations in Edinburgh. The only negative comment i would make is the rooms are not soundproof as stated. The first night we had some nosey neighbours, which we could hear clearly through the wall. Luckily they checked out the next day so we didnt tell reception, however i am sure they would have dealt with the issue quickly and professionally. Thank you to the Novotel for an amazing stay and holiday!!

I am an Accor Gold member and I received a welcome gift in my room and a drink at the bar +/- bed was good but narrow + location + friendly staff + it was recently renovated +/- breakfast was simple but good - narrow bathroom - there was a chlorine smell in the reception hall from the pool in the basement Are you satisfied and would you come back: Yes satisfied but I actually wanted another hotel but they were 2x the price of this one... It's a great alternative.

Nice hotel with a very good breakfast. Location is perfect to visit Edinburgh. Good pool to relax. Decoration of hotel is at the hallways a bit outdated (old carpets). Price/quality compared to other Novotel hotels could be better (due to the relative high price).

The hotel is a 20 minute walk from old town so it's not super convenient. It is by the University. The rooms are a normal small size but renovated. The breakfast is below average. Not a lot of options and average tasting food. The poached salmon at dinner was very good. They have a pool but it comes with a lot of annoying rules / covid requirements.

The photos look great but the reality was slightly cheap, dated furnishings. The room was stuffy and hot and too noisy to sleep with the window open. Even with the windows closed I had to play music to drown out the noise of the launderette or fans (something mechanical!) from the building across the road on Lady Lawson street. A room elsewhere may have been quieter and I would have asked to move if I had been there more than one night. I didn’t have breakfast.
