          Nice room,friendly and helpful staff & excellent location.

          I had troubles with the internet in the beginning, it was really very poor. After complaining in the reception it was improved and worked very well.

          This was the 2nd time I had stayed at this Hotel, having stayed just 1 night when going to a gig at Murrayfield last year. It is very well situated for seeing all the sights in Edinburgh and shopping, (John Lewis etc is very close by) Probably not the best Hotel if you have a car to park. But that wasn't a problem for us as we were flying up. We sayed 3 nights this time and decided to eat in the hotel on 2 nights, where we found the quality of food and choice to be excellent. The Breakfast choice was very good as well. The Restaurant staff were hard working and very friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the little fridge/mini bar well stocked. I will definately be using this hotel again. This Hotel is far removed from "faceless chains" where I have had the misfortune to stay before. At only a 1/5th of the price of "the main 5 star Hotel in Edinburgh" it represents in my opinion very good vale.

          Just a warning to anyone with mobility issues, some of the rooms require you to go up in a lift, then down 2 flights of stair to access them, with your luggage, this was not a problem for us, but might be worth speaking to the hotel when booking to ensure a room with easier access.

          The staff were excellent and allowed us to check in early. The room was ok, quite small and was covered in dust it obviously has not been cleaned very well. The hotel was in a excellent location and the breakfast was really good. I really enjoyed my visit I was only put off by the room not being clean.

          The room was not clean.

          Super find in the heart of Edinburgh and with weekend parking for only £4 a day at Waverley Station Car Park which is within comfortable walking distance, this makes a super city break hotel. The restaurant food was superb, although if staying for more two or three nights one would find the choice rather limited. House wine delicious and served at a perfect temperature. Enjoying a drink from the bar is like being in your sitting room. Such a cosy place with very spacious rooms. Loved it.

          The location is fantastic. Only a few minutes walk from Prince's Street, the Royal Mile, etc. It is situated on a quiet lane that gets hardly any traffic, so it's extremely quiet. One of the main reasons I chose the Parliament House Hotel was for the free wifi. The room I was in was tastefully decorated, as was the rest of the hotel.

          I found the staff at the front desk to be a little cool. Not exactly unfriendly, but they didn't make particular efforts to be friendly. The cleaning staff I encountered, however, were both friendly and jovial. Although the lack of an elevator didn't bother me too much as I'm young and pretty fit, I imagine it would be different for older or more out-of-shape guests who may have to carry their luggage up four flights of stairs.

          The hotel is well located in a quiet street (no disturbance from traffic or people passiing by) but within walking distance of shopping, the station and the castle. There is a good choice for breakfast and the staff are polite and helpful.

          Our room was rather shabby. The net curtains were dirty and torn and there was black mould along the shower door runner. The room seemed very dark due to a combination of poor lighting, dirty net curtains blocking much of the daylight and the heavy curtains unable to be drawn all the way back. Perhaps we were just unlucky and the other rooms may be cleaner and brighter.

          The reception staff were lovely and so welcoming. Breakfast was really nice. Room was spacious and very clean.

          Windows were not double glazed and our room was a the rear of the hotel so you could hear the noise from next street when people made they way back in the early hours of the morning.
