I stayed here one night and wanted a place that was in central Banff so I could ditch the car and walk around. This hotel could not have a more central location. It is the exact middle of Banff and perfect location to explore Banff. My room was small and basic overall, but I found this hotel to be perfect....

This is our favourite hotel in Banff. We always stay here because it has a great location opposite 2 of the best bars in Banff; Wild Bills and Touque. It's right on the main street and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's a great price and we always enjoy staying here. If you are after 5 star luxury then...

Scenic view of the town when outside, short stroll to the river/park/gardens/bike path museum one way, and equally short stroll to a decent supermarket the other way, Restaurants and shoppes along the way both directions. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet, free ice water, and elevators was efficient and fast. Staff was polite and helpful.

This hotel does a good job at not setting you up for disappointment - they ensure you know it is a 2 star hotel with limited services. They do not have parking, but it is nearby. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It was incredibly convenient. I found a room for $76 online and it was absolutely...

My boyfriend and I stay in Banff and few times a year and decided we would try the king edward as it is in the centre of town. Bad choice, we won't be staying again. The elevator was scary and barely worked. The room seemed okay when we walked in, it was small but was fairly clean. That evening we...

Quick Review: Although the room was a clean, the heat along with the bedding, was unbearable and really ruined the entire stay. It is conveniently located and has underground parking but other than that I would not recommend it and you should save your money. On Thursday March 16th my boyfriend and I booked a night in at the King...

I stayed here for a romantic weekend and was seriously disappointed for the price we paid. Outdated, bed was horribly uncomfortable, bathroom was just gross. Great location, but that's about all it offers.

Comfortable, clean and good value for money. Each room has a fridge and there is a communal microwave. However the walls aren't very which and you can expect lively Australians acting like fools throughout the night. That said the staff are great at dealing with these issues and just call the police and have them removed. Perfect for a couple...

Stayed Feb 11/17 Saturday Night - Very shocked at the size of room, Bed was Queen Size probably more like Double and absolutely terrible, could feel the springs thru mattress, TV was size of my IPhone, and Bathroom very out dated, and dirty. Price of room was more like a $64.00 not $154.00. Website does not JUSTIFY.
