Lovely staff, great facilities and an amazing room with a view, upgraded for a birthday surprise! Lovely little touches for this too.
Breakfast was a bit disappointing for the price, missing items and staff member on the phone wasn’t very knowledgeable regarding allergies etc!

Beautiful building with friendly staff and a great location.

The service I received from all staff was exceptional and amazing at the hotel. My mother passed away last week which is why I had travelled up from London but the kindness shown to me and my family was just so lovely and sincere - it really made my stay at the Waldorf Astoria slightly easier to bear in a very painful time of my life. In particular, Jamie Wood was brilliant and so helpful with everything I asked for - going above and beyond. I’m originally from Edinburgh (many years ago) so I will always know the hotel as “The Caledonian” but I will definitely look to stay at the Waldorf Astoria again for future trips to Edinburgh. The room was superb as the size was perfect for the three of us and the castle view was amazing to see. As for the location - it is also perfect as you are between two train stations but you are in the centre of the city and Princess street is a 1 minute walk as well as many other attractions not too far away.
Nothing - it was all great!
