    This hotel is close to Waverly train station, but if you have a lot of bags I'd suggest taking a taxi because of Edinburgh's hilly landscape. The location is actually perfect--right between the Royal Mile and Princes Street. My room was clean with plenty of space, but it could definitely use an update. The large windows revealed a lovely view of Calton Hill. I had the windows cracked open during the day, but had to shut them at night due to the noise outside.
    The bathroom could also use updating. The shower curtain kept sticking to me. EEWW!
    Overall, it was an acceptable two-night stay.

    Best Location in Edinburgh

    by

    This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of old town Edinburgh. Is down the Royal Mile (to Edinburgh Castle), and the New Parliament Building, the Queen's Gallery & Planet Earth (the newest attraction in Edinburgh). Not to mention a couple of blocks away from the bus & rail stations. Our room came with a great view of Calton Hill. The people at the reception were friendly and very accomodating, we arrived earlier than check in and they gave us a room immediately.

    Unique Quality: Great views of Calton Hill.

    Directions: Old Town Edinburgh

    Not a bad walk out the back of Waverly station BUT

    by

    The hotel was fairly new in 1995. When we stayed there was a problem with the fire alarm giving false warnings. VERY irritating in the middle of the night. We were also disappointed that, on the day of check out they even wanted to charge us extra to hold our bags for an hour, at the lobby locked area, when we were at the castle. A bit ridiculous considering we were inconvenienced twice in the middle of the night by the faulty hotel alarm system.

    Unique Quality: If you choose to stay here, check to be sure the fire alarm system has been fixed.

    The Jurys Inn was clean, comfortble and a very easy walk to the Royal mile. (Be prepared to climb hills or stairs!!) We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

    We started out staying with a tour group and stayed on after they left for Ireland. We continued to eat breakfast at the hotel only because it was included in our reservations. We found the food in all the hotels in Scotland to be very bland but nourishing.

    This is not a fancy hotel. We had a clean room in the back of the hotel, our view looked down on the outdoor staff area and they started making noise with laundry racks quite early every morning. The ice machines weren't working so we had to check the machines on other floors and by the weekend, none of the machines worked. We survived. It's wasn't as bad as it sounds. Maybe we were too tired to care but I'd stay there again.

    If you don't bring your computer, they have a computer with internet access in the lobby. We were able to keep tabs on what was going on at home without having the expense of a call. The cost of using the Hotel computer was very reasonable.

    There is no pool, our view was certainly not great but at least we were not right over the bar area. We did hear the yelling, chanting or whatever they were doing in the bar and behind the hotel on High Street but keep in mind there was an important sports event taking place while we were there. We found the excitement and celebrations interesting and were not bothered by it at all. Nice hotel.

    Unique Quality: The most outstanding characteristics of this hotel was it's staff. It's location was convenient to the Waverly Bridge and to Princess Street and to High Street and all the shops and sights on the Royal Mile.

    Directions: Right across the street from the Waverly Bus Station.

Nice Hotel, Perfect Location

by TripAdvisor Member Europebaby

I can't believe all the negative reviews for this hotel.....We had a wonderful stay at the Jurys Edinburgh Inn. We stayed for 4 days in June with our family of 9 and found this hotel to be perfect. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The rooms were spacious, clean and fairly modern. But it was the LOCATION that was the best part of all!!! Right below High St. you just go out the back door by the bar and head up the stairs and you are right in the middle of the Royal Mile. Perfect!!! The bus tours are practically right outside the door on the Waverly Bridge. We had a wonderful stay at Jurys!!!

they've cleaned up their act

After reading the reviews, but before going to Jury's on a booking I had already made, I emailed the Jury's website (no reply).
I then - with some difficulty - found an email address for the Edinburgh hotel. Nice helpful reply reassuring me that bedrooms had been re-furbished. (Thanks BK at Jury's Edinbugh)
Our room (618) was fine - great view and very clean. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
A real plus of this site is that it can be used to push standards up. Presumably a lot of people who work on the frontline in hotels want to provide a better service, and constructive complaints will help them put pressure on hotel management for something better.

Good Location, Hotel OK but not great

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were there during the festival, were joining a tour group. We went out three days early so we could see more of Edinburgh, but couldn't get a room at Jury's for the three days prior, so moved there from a (much nicer) B&B. The employees at the front desk were polite, but not very helpful. Our tour director had left us a note telling us not to wait around, but to meet him and the group at 6, but they didn't give it to us. So we waited around for over an hour for no reason. The room faced the train station, so we could hear trains late into the night, because we had our windows open for comfortable temperature. The room itself was fine - with modern fixtures, etc. It had a blow dryer, tea service, etc. The only thing it didn't have was washcloths and/or solid soap. I don't mind washing my hands with liquid soap; I do it all the time. But I don't care for taking a shower with shower/bath gel. Theirs was in a dispenser in the shower - it doubled as shampoo! Luckily, we brought washcloths and a zip lock bag from home, having had this experience in Ireland several months ago. I found a soap store on the Royal Mile, just a few blocks away, where I bought three bars of nice, scented soap. (Zip lock bags have many uses.) We got two breakfasts and one dinner at the hotel with our tour. The food was OK at dinner. Not too many vegetables, but that's true all over Great Britain. The breakfast buffet took forever - 20-30 minutes in line. The second day we got there earlier, so spent less time in line, but there were no seats in the main room, so we had to eat standing at the bar! Enough food, and a good enough variety, and it was prepared properly.

Bring your earplugs

Overall a very ordinary experience and overpriced at that. Big problem is the mediaeval central heating which is incredibly noisy and - this is what it must be like holidaying in Baghdad.
