Back Again

As a regular business visitor to Edinburgh we find the Capital Hotel to be excellently located, the standard of accommodation and facilities are consistently very good and the staff to be friendly and extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Edinburgh as a tourist (the Christmas Markets and fairs where excellent this year) and as a business centre ideally located for both the City and Airport. We will certainly be coming back again soon.

Regular Visitor on Business.

I would easily be able to recommend this Hotel to anyone looking for a well placed base for which to visit Edinburgh. The staff are always a treat to meet when you have just travelled a long distance, they make you feel welcome and have always been willing to go that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The facilities are of a high standard, excellent restaurant, comfortable bar, and if you are that way inclined the fitness centre has all the kit you need and there is also relaxing pool. We have stayed at this hotel seventeen times this year and are looking forward to staying again before the end of the year. Give it a go, you won't be disapointed.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

When leaving Scotland, always try to spend all your paper money before crossing the border into England. Because, although Scotish money is legal tender in England don't be surprised if shopkeepers ask the question "what is this" when you try to spend it.

Capitol Stay

A good stay at the Capitol, location is good, there is a bus stop around the corner with only 20 minutes to downtown. Beds are a little firm, there is no air conditioner in room so it gets a litlle warm during the night. Free car parking is a plus however the spots are small and tight. Food in the restaurant/bar is good.

Paid for breakfast

The only thing we were disappointed in was not getting our packed breakfast. We had paid for our breakfast and had to leave early to catch our plane so we arranged for a packed cold breakfast to be ready for us at the desk at 5;45 am when we checked out. It wasn't there and after waiting 5 min. while they checked with the kitchen we were told they knew nothing about and could we wait until it was put together. Of course we could not and that is why we had pre-ordered it. We felt gipped. We feel that a refund is in order.

great room, average staff

Nice hotel, slightly isolated though, 30min bus ride to the city. Room was great, spacious and clean. However wasnt impressed by the staff. Some had a bit of attitude, were not very helpful when asked how to get somewhere, the "free' breakfast voucher was actually a 2 pounds discount on an overpriced and average 12 pounds buffet.

Although hotel staff may encourage you to get the 1.5 pound single bus ticket to get to the city, spending 3.5 for the day pass is def worth it.

Quite pleasant

We stayed here a couple of nights and were very happy with our time here. It was comfortable, included a nice breakfast and the restaurant was quite good for a dinner as well. The only issue we had was being woking up early on our second morning when the fire alarm went off! But these things happen

Not Happy

Very disappointed to find we had been allocated 2 rooms in the basement. No lift to the basement, and carrying our luggage we had to navigate a very poorly lit, dingy staircase and found our corridor only with the help of a passing staff member. The carpet was stained and grubby and we felt we were staying in the service quarters of the hotel. As this hotel has 111 bedrooms and the booking had been made months earlier, and not a last minute booking, we were amazed that we were 'dumped' in the bowels of this hotel. Had we been staying for more than 2 nights we would have asked to be moved to a more acceptable part of the hotel. Our rooms, however, were clean and comfortable, but the light in one of the bathrooms did not work, but in fairness this was attended to quickly. One of the large double glazed units in one of the rooms had a broken seal and was steamed up inside the casement, and the handle on another window was hanging off making it unusable. Also one of the alarm clocks did not work. On the 2nd night, although we had booked and paid for 2 rooms for 2 nights, we were unable to access one of the rooms and had to be provided with a new key. On the plus side, free parking and we had a nice meal in the Westview Restaurant although the menu was limited. The self service breakfast was very good with an excellent choice.
