Well situated near Playhouse Theatre and restaurants, no lifts if you have difficulty with stairs, our room had a blind that didn’t open and a bit mould round shower unit but over all clean. Enjoyed our stay would recommend.

Excellent small hotel, fantastic value and centrally located. Period decor but we like that. Stairs only to all floors. Lovely quite large room, thick towels and comfy bed. Only criticism leak under shower door reported to desk next day. Will book and stay again no problem

Ballantrae Albany
the hotel was perfectly clean and had the required facilities... however the breakfast was a complete let down. The continental breakfast consisted of sliced cucumber, tomatoes and pre-sliced cheeses and boxes of cereal. There was no hot option other than two rounds of toast put on the table as you arrived. It’s not good enough in a 4 star hotel not to offer a hot breakfast. The bar was also closed for the entire week we were there, I guess this is because we came out of season (does Edinburgh have an off season??) With regards to the room clean up, I’m not convinced the coffee cups were replaced each day as we had the same odd pair all week. Also the coffee biscuits were not replaced following the first day. The room however was lovely and well equipped and it’s clear this hotel has had a recent make over and it looks great, I think a few more staff and a better breakfast and this would be truly great hotel.

Lovely boutique hotel
Nice, clean comfortable. Very good location close to the station, and both the breakfast and service were very good. Would definitely stay again

Trouble seeing this as a 4-star hotel
I had 1/4 of a roll of toilet paper, no soap and 5 bottles of shampoo. One of the lightbulbs in the bathroom was out and I couldn't use the lights in the main room due to the fact that one was flickering intensely. Spent the entire night being woken up by other guests in the hotel slamming doors open and shut.

Bed was amazingly comfortable. Hotel a bit too hot and stuffy in the mornings, but staff were friendly and the room was clean.

Excellent location and value for money
We loved our stay at the Ballantrae Albany. It's excellently located 10 minutes walk from the centre and around the corner from the tram stop. Lots of cafes/pubs/restaurants around if you choose not to eat at the hotel - we found the fridge in the room a lovely surprise so that we could have breakfast before heading out. The guests upstairs were a tad noisy but otherwise no complaints.
