Fodor's Expert Review The Edinburgh Grand

42 St. Andrew Sq., Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH2 2AD, Scotland

Despite all appearances—the classical Edinburgh exterior, the Corinthian-columned art deco lobby, the friendly and attentive concierges, and the in-house high-end restaurants—The Edinburgh Grand is not a swanky hotel, but rather a collection of grand and luxurious serviced apartments. Guests can expect large living spaces complete with comfy king beds, roaring fireplaces, giant TVs, and a choice of marble bathrooms, as well as kitchens stocked with food essentials, cookware, fridges, and dishwashers. If you want a night off from cooking, you'll find the consistently excellent Hawksmoor restaurant downstairs, as well as the less excellent Register Club on the fourth floor. The location is incredibly convenient, too; the tram from the airport stops right outside, while Edinburgh Waverley train station is just around the corner.

PROS

  • beautiful apartments with supercomfy beds
  • ideal location for trams and trains
  • all amenities included

CONS

  • perilously dark corridors
  • no doors on some bathrooms
  • Register Club food disappointing and overpriced
