Hotel Info

Overview

The Malmaison Hotel is located on the waterfront of the bohemian port of Leith. Princes Street and the historical city centre are just a five minute drive away and this stylish hotel is surrounded by a fine array of boutique shops and excellent restaurants. The hotel’s brasserie has recently been restored to its original atmospheric glory with an abundance of candle light and wrought ironwork, creating a romantic and seductive atmosphere. During the day the outdoor terrace overlooks the water, adding to the cosmopolitan feel and guests can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere with a cocktail. The hotel also has a funky bar, five versatile meeting rooms and 24 hour gymtonic health club facilities, making this an ideal choice for the business and leisure traveller alike. Guest rooms within the Malmaison Hotel are uniquely designed, some with bold colours and stripes, others with muted subtle tones and harbour views. All rooms come fully equipped with the modern amenities one would need for a comfortable stay.

fabulous

The whole stay was a pleasure. I have stayed twice before and there was a welcoming card in the room hand written to me. Staff were courteous and very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was amazing the eggs benediction with smoked salmon was magnificent. There were little blue ceramic pots of yoghurt which were lovely over the fruit salad. There are many high quality eating establishments in the vicinity. Can't wait to return. Mary mcarthurx

Nice but breakfast not so great...

The hotel was nice with efficient check in, we had room 220 facing the front of the harbour. The breakfast service was not so great, some staff members had an attitude which left a lot to be desired. We waited 20-25 minutes for the breakfast we ordered, having to chase them up to receive it and the waffles I had we're so salty they were totally inedible and my partner had a cooked breakfast that tasted of salmon clearly because the scrambled eggs had been sitting on the salmon in the kitchen for some time. The staff forgot about my tea and also the couple we were with had the same service problems and they forgot to bring out one of their breakfasts, not a great end to a nice stay!

The best thing about my stay was...

Nice room.

A delight to stay here

I booked the Malmaison for my partners birthday. More recent reviews after booking were a little worrying to say the least!!! However we were not disappointed in any way. Lovely location by the water. Easy check-in. Our room on the third floor had a view of the castle. Room clean good size and with a bathroom to die for!! Breakfast was lovely, really well presented, fantastic dining room. There is a bus that runs into the centre every few minutes and a day travel card is £3.50. So easy as it was less than 10 minutes to Princess street.

Disappointed

This was the 3rd time that we have stayed in the hotel. It is now looking a bit tired and I was quite disappointed. Our room was ok but not certainly not luxurious and our bath was quite dirty with a lot of hairs in it.... In the room it said breakfast was till 11 but when I went down at 10.35 I was told it was finished although the cold buffet was still sitting out so I grabbed a pastry and orange juice. It used to be such a lovely hotel but it desperately needs some TLC, sad.
