            The staff were very busy but still very polite and attentive.

            The room was nice, but it seemed like the bar was more important then the guests. We didn't get the wake up call and breakfast was late. No appoligies either. Too bad, because the location and the room were great.

          • Older travelers
            4.2

            The hotel was not value for money. The Raddisson next door is in fact better value with modern facilities. No lift in the hotel meant a heavy bag needed to be hiked up 4 flights. The room was tatty with no air con. The door didnt lock, the loo didnt flush and the shower dribbled out the nozzle. The room was tatty with paint and chips ouf of the walls and wood work with a thread bare carpet that not only looked unclean but smelt and felt un-clean also. We had to pay extra for a very small breakfast that was included in the cheaper price next door. I have never complained about a hotel before, and we stay in many throughout the year, this stop in Edinburgh at the Bank was a very bad experiance and one I hope to never have again in a 100 pounds plus per night hotel

            Location

            Ridiculous reception at the bar; dirty staircase - no elevator - certainly not for elederly people with heavy bags; very dark room with no light on the desk; dark bathroom, light so dim, you can't see your face while shaving; ridiculously huge bathroom - very uncomfortable< no bathroom items like shampoo no plugs near desk - impossible to charge or plug in your e-accessories; no wi-fi !!!- had to go at night to Raddisson and pay for my internet there; left Bank Hotel for London - didn't stay 2nd night, because it was too much to bear...

            Friendly staff, nothing too much trouble, location on Royal Mile excellent. Room was very comfortable with everything in it you could wish for.

            9.2

            The room was lovely and massive bathroom.

            breakfast not well presented

            7.0

            Really loved the quirky room - enjoyed lying in bed reading rl Stephenson (selection of his novels provided in my room) overlooked by his portraits and his various letter s and memorabilia in the room.

            Hotel is a bit noisy. To be fair, noise is a bit unavoidable in this location on teh Royal Mile. I didn't really mind it but older guests might not like being above the bar at weekends.

          • Single
            8.8

            Great location, close to main train station and sites. Interesting themed room. Handy bar and snacks downstairs.

            Wifi did not work. Shower hose was leaking.

            6.6

            The room was very impressive, very central location.

            Quite afew stairs to climb so bear in mind if youve had afew drinks. Would have liked to have known about night club next door.

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            This hotel is very poorly maintained. The bathrooms are a disaster. The bar downstairs is very noisy especially on weekends. The area, altough close to the castle, is not a good one. Lots of police activity all night long. Noisy, old and in poor shape. Would not stay there again. We checked out early and had problems with the policies. Neither Booked.net or bank hotel clearly stated you must stay all nights booked.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Rooms are newly refurbished as of October 2012. Very nice finish with a classy look.

            During our stay work hadnt been completed on refurbishment of the starcase. A bit unusual to have to duck past the builders during the day but not a real problem. Work should be completed before the christmas period.

          • Older travelers

            Large rooms

            Needs much repair Not very quiet Hotel priority seemed to be the bar business Run by young people who needed supervision

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The bank hotel is ideally located for the places we like to visit, it's friendly and lively with a great breakfast.
