Chris D wrote a review Oct 2020
Solihull, United Kingdom

Friendly and helpful receptionist, good Covid measures, we were able to load and unload car in a courtyard at rear of property which was very handy. On street parking was available for a fee - we chose to park in a car park nearby which was reasonably priced and only a short walk away. The rooms were of a good size, modern in style with a good sized TV and bed with coffee making facilities, iron, safe etc. The en-suite was also a good size. This was a great place to stay was just a short ten minute walk from the attractions we wanted to see. Would easily recommend and I would definitely stay here again. The was a key drop box for quick checkout too - all good!

Excellent accommodation at a great price. The staff were very friendly, and the rooms were of a very high quality including a large screen tv, lots of plug sockets with USB charging facilities, tea and coffee facilities, iron and ironing board and a hair dryer.
Located a few minutes walk from the mile in the old town in the back drop of the castle, I'd highly reccomend this hotel and will definitely be going back again!

Secure front door, friendly attentive receptionist when we arrived (man with a beard), hand sanitizer upon entering and in the reception, room was spacious, with coffee making facilities, iron, safe etc. Things such as toilet seat and tv remote had sanitizer labels around them so gives the extra security during these uncertain times that the room has been properly cleaned. Tv was a great size and good quality picture. Also had a full body mirror which is a huge plus! Great quality for such a low price, would definitely recommend and return.

Lovely staff, nice rooms, quiet and classy. Breakfast was delicious and we really felt it was head and shoulders above the usual chain hotels such as the one across the road our friends stayed at. Thanks!

Fantastic hotel.
This hotel was booked as part of a British Airways flight + hotel booking. I couldn't believe the price for three nights. Absolute bargain.

Leonardo City, Edinburgh is the perfect base for your stay when visiting this wonderful city.
Good location. Walking distance to the city centre and all major attractions and bus stops (although a bit of an uphill walk returning back at the end of a long day) but don't let that put you off as Edinburgh is hill central and you cannot avoid them.

Rooms are clean, moderate size with nice bathrooms.
Our room was a twin, exactly as booked but the beds were pushed together to make a super king if needed.

We received a warm welcome and our room was ready earlier than check-in time and they allowed us to have the key.

Tea/coffee and bathroom toiletries provided so no need to drag around your shampoos etc if you want to keep your plane cabin case light.
Staff were all friendly and helpful.
There's a luggage room if you need to checkout earlier than you're leaving the city. We used this facility and was secure.

At the time of staying the restaurant/bar wasn't open due to Covid restrictions but that made no difference to our stay as we were out exploring for 15 hours a day. There are so many restaurants nearby you really don't rely on the hotel food service.

We had the most memorable stay here in Edinburgh and this hotel made it extra special for us. Do not hesitate to book.

This is an OK hotel is a decent location. Rooms are a little bit tired - TVs are about 10 years old and don't offer USB ports or other advancements such as netflix that you get in other hotels with smart TVs.
Hotel decor is decent enough. If you don't offer evening meals, then things such as ice machines/ cutlery, vending machines could be worthwhile. Rooms could be cleaner in the less obvious spots (under bed, behind TV, under desk)

Superb hotel, excellent location. Within 10 minutes walking distance to all main attractions.
Breakfast was available for €10 per person if you book the night before and was really nice , cooked freshly!
Small bar but not really one you would sit and drink in, but lots to do in the city it’s not needed.
Room was lovely, very spacious and lovely shower/bathroom.
Staff at reception were really helpful.
They allow you order food to your room from local takeaways free of charge!
Will definitely be back, an excellent stay !!!

The room was a good size, well equipped and clean. Staff were very helpful. The location was convenient - it was a short walk into the centre but far enough away to be quiet. There's no parking but we got a good discount from the hotel at the NCP near the castle which wasn't too far away. Breakfast was Covid-style - delivered in a bag to the room but did contain a hot roll of our choice (bacon, egg, etc.) and there were plenty of other things too (too much really). Initially thought room price was quite high but compared to a lot of others in Edinburgh at this time of year was reasonable really.

Very unpleasant stay. Rooms not clean- hair on carpets and in bathroom, foot fluff on floor and carpets not hoovered, significantly stained carpets and walls, crisps over chairs. We were taken to 5 different rooms all that had quite obviously not been cleaned! This is despite stating enhanced cleaning because of covid.
No hand wash in bathrooms in the foyer.

Despite this being disgustingly filthy staff at reception -Amy went above and beyond.
Cleaning is contracted to an external company who are quite obviously ripping the p***! Shame as the actual hotel staff from this chain were professional and empathetic at the horrendous state they found their rooms to be in.

I would not return to this hotel and would definitely not recommend it.

Good afternoon Jl75, Thank you very much for staying with us and for leaving a review. It’s good to read you found staff to go above and beyond, being professional and empathetic. I am, however, truly sorry that you found the bedroom not to be of our normal cleanliness standards. Unfortunately external factors outside of our control have made it difficult for us to deliver our usual standard of product and service. The impact of the pandemic, the shortage of available labour, and supply chain issues continues to present significant challenges for the hospitality industry. As a result of these factors, in this instance, we fell short of our usual cleanliness standards and for this I sincerely apologise. We are working with our housekeeping teams to ensure that this issue does not re-occur and we hope that we can welcome you back to Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels in the near future. James Customer Experience Team

what is the best way to get to Leonardo Edinburgh from Edinburgh airport? (Transportation )
Answer from CsE84
Hungary9 contributions5 helpful votes
We took the tram which is just outside the airport, but you need to walk cc. 10 minutes from the tram stop to the Hotel. For us, it was no problem, but if you have big luggage, you might find a taxi more comfortable (and more expensive).

Hello, yes you will be able to leave your bags with reception when you arrive. On our leaving day we left our bags & went off around the city, returned to the hotel mid afternoon to collect our bags before coming home. The staff are very helpful so your bags will be safe with them. Have a good time.
