Guest reviews for Best Western Edinburgh South Braid Hills Hotel

3 out of 5

Nice historic hotel, disappointing view and size!

Pros: Perfect location and nice lobby decoration.
Cons: Size of rooms should be managed better, and the window view should be improved somehow!
Location: Perfect with just 1 min walking bus station that takes you to the center which will leave everything to visit in Edinburgh just around you.
A nice hotel that gives you a nice experience with a perfect location, nevertheless, if you are taking the standard room you might be VERY disappointing. The window is facing a wall with very very little view. The room size is smaller than expected.

Good evening, Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately the "Classic double room" you had booked is not categorized as having any views. We do have "Classic Double Rooms with Views" these were bookable at an additional £10.00 per night and would have guaranteed you a lovely view of the Braidburn park and firth of Forth. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Happy New Year.

Beautiful hotel close to bus route and city center

Lovely hotel and staff. The girl at the front desk was so helpful and pleasant. We were there only one night but had a great sleep and delicious dinner.
