Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by terryc never lets me down!
I am a regular visitor and whilst I have a choice and have tried other Edinburgh hotels from time to time, I always come back to Edinburgh City West to enjoy a friendly and comfortable stay and have never been disappointed. As with all venues it starts at the top and the G.M. is a very personable and hands-on guy who takes a real interest in visitors views and is genuinely pleased when they compliment the Hotel and concerned if they have issues. It follows that the staff respond to this positive style and are always cheerful and friendly, which is important to someone like me who is away from home a lot. I sometimes read negative reviews of the hotel and wonder whether the reviewer has actually stayed at the same venue. However, I guess you get out of life what you put into it and maybe their own approach to staff is not as friendly as others, or they are hyper critical! Anyway, for my money Edinburgh City West is an ongoing good experience and I look forward to my next visit, for the week commencing 15th September.

Sehr freundliches und kompententes Personal. Für Reise mit Kind (groß) das Zimmer mit 2 Doppelbetten optimal. Auf Anfrage glutenfreies Frühstück möglich. Frühstücksbuffet toll. Lage und Erreichbarkeit sehr gut.
Kleine Mankos: Badezimmerbeleuchtung eher gering, kein Kosmetikspiegel im Badezimmer, keine Steckdose für Föhn im Badezimmer. Bei Reinigung im Bad/Zimmer leider Haare von Personal zurückgeblieben.
Gesmat: Sehr gut

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Khokan Experience in Holiday Inn
Overall a good experience. Peaceful stay but away from City Center and therefore somewhat inconvenient for the tourists with short stay. Staff is helpful and courteous.. I would have preferred choice of few more restaurants. I had visited with my wife and son and stayed in a suite. Perhaps I would have appreciated a little larger drawing room.

Enjoyed a relaxed family visit. We were provided with all our room and food needs without any problems. The bar was pleasant place to meet friends and the children enjoyed the outside playground. There is a large car park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reefbabe Brilliant!!
absolutely brilliant stay; we both enjoyed ourselves at the Holiday Inn so much. We have stayed in Holiday Inn hotels preferentially in the past and the standard is excellent in all cases, but I think Holiday Inn - west edinburgh was the best! Well done to all the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveinBeds Great Hotel & Casual Dining but Better Signage Please!
I think the new Holiday Inn menses are just right for both lunch and dinner. The breakfast buffet is very good but I do not like that you have to order fried and poached eggs; just never sure how long before they come.
Only real criticisms are that the car park is too small (arriving back late twice there was nowhere to park properly) and, unlike almost all Holiday Inns, it needs much better signage from the road, especially approaching from the west where the entrance is not very visible.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Toots55 Excellent staff but pity about the sofa bed
Delighted to be given an upgrade to Junior Suite on arrival, but not so pleased when my 92 year old mother and I saw only one double bed. The extra sofa bed was very uncomfortable with lots of crumbs in the folding mechanism. Only a very light sheet thrown loosely directly on top of the mattress with nothing in between. Only one remote control for two televisions. Shower 'switch' failed to work in the bathroom. Mean tea tray with no biscuits .... but excellent breakfast and delightful staff who made our two night stay very special. The staff are a credit to the management, especially at breakfast and in the bar. Will return because of its good location, but I felt that the prices were actually pretty steep for two sleepless nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patriot 186 Great place to stay in Edinburgh
This hotel was a great place to stay with very friendly staff and just a short distance frome the centre of the city.
Bus routes outside the entrance made it easy to come and go should you not want to drive by car.
Made to feel at home and after staying the 8 nights I got know the great service team.
They had very good knowledge at the front deck for a varity of tours you could go on and very pleased to help you should you ask for any thing you may have needed. Would come again when staying in Edinburgh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jay jay blondie small bed and great service
this hotel is perfect for a city break, handy for the city centre, opposite an outlet shopping mall, fab views across the city, good food, very caring staff, my only complaint if you can call it that, is that the beds are standard double beds and we are used to a king, we felt cramped and hot, so i would advise a twin room, it was july,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gemmalou A truly lovely hotel with brilliant staff!
I use this hotel frequently for business and I always receive the same warm welcome from the helpful staff. It is always a pleasure to stay at this hotel because of this fact and the face that, as a lone traveller, I feel safe and secure.
I would highly recommend this as a venue for business meetings and for anyone looking for a great base from which to explore Edinburgh - Excellent!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pmazsnr Hotel well situated within walking distance of West End
The hotel situation is good with free parking and within a half hour walk from the west end of Princes street. In addition you can easily walk to the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh and the Newtowns area.
The hotel is pleasant with good facilities. The only draw back was that the beds had very hard matresses, not leading to a good sleep.
Breakfast was fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fossil367 Great suite
One night spent at the hotel to attend Edinburgh Castle Concert.
Staff member on check in desk was excellent, couldn't have made us feel more welcome or been more helpful.
Bar and restaurant staff were also very friendly and obliging.
Breakfast was very good, but chef needs to keep an eye on the scrambled egg drying out becoming inedible, and overcooking the black pudding. Other breakfast items were very good quality.
Well done to all the City West staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strimmer Nice Hotel - Nice Staff - Nice Location
How nice it is to be able to park the car not far from entrance without additional fees and restrictions of pre-booking for space. And how nice to check check-in with staff that cares.
Even a hitch with my pre-booked room was not a problem and quickly resolved without hastle and my family not being concerned as to what was happening at the desk. Full marks to front of desk and other staff for a pleasent stay. Just a nice hotel altogether at a good location within reasoneable taxi distance to the main events in Edinburgh. Without doubt better than fit for purpose for short stays.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Renamus A nice hotel in a good location
The hotel is in a good location, and well placed for a short trip to Leith (by car) or in town (by bus). The room was a fine size - make sure to ask for a room on an upper floor facing the castle, as the view is stunning. Breakfast was fine, and the star were very friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sg7861 front desk
arrived at noon --had informed that we will be checking in early.Still had to wait for 45 mins to get a room
also, the bigger issue--the front desk wouldnot answer the phone despite me calling multiple times.They could have put me on hold and tell me to wait..The bell would keep on ringing without any response.That was frustrating

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KimbleM Very nice room and attentive staff
The view from the room over Edinburgh was great, the room its self was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The staff were all excellent, very efficient and happy which was nice, the breakfast selection and quality were excellent. However the stay was spoilt for me by two things. The access to the internet is unreasonably expensive and in this day & age should not be an expensive extra when booking a room. The other disappointment was paying 25Pounds for a Chicken Caesar Salad with chips and a 200ml glass of wine from room service.
Overall though a very nice two night stay.
