About Malmaison Edinburgh

Set within a former ‘house of ill-repute’ in the suburb of Leith, Malmaison Edinburgh has rejuvenated the 1883 building, with mod-cons and old charm.

The Malmaison’s Standard and Superior rooms are offered as double or twin, while further creature comforts come from the Suite and The Port of Leith Suite. All come with digital TVs, hotel toiletries, complimentary Wi-Fi, iron and ironing board.

The hotel’s catering facilities offers a boutique service across four rooms with a variety of set-ups to suit the wedding, meeting or function.

The Malmaison’s Brasserie offers a range of Scottish and British classics served inside or al fresco on the terrace. The hotel’s wine tasting room caters to private dining, matching food and wine, while Malbar serves respite from cold nights with a warm atmosphere, cocktails and cool beers. During the day Malbar brings forth its Café culture with coffee and croissants.

On the waterfront, near Malmaison, is the Royal Yacht Britannia and the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre.

Negative Reviews


While many guests found the hotel was luxurious at the right price, some found the hotel and experience over-priced, suggesting it was ‘mid-range’ and ‘average’ for its boutique positioning.

Bad Breakfast

The Malmaison Edinburgh’s dining experience is open to both guests and non-guests of the hotel and a popular destination in Leith, and while many have enjoyed their meals, some guests found the breakfast to be cold, over-priced or not up to scratch.

Airless Without Air Con

Perhaps it’s the old building, but some guests found the rooms to be airless and stuffy, suffering from no air conditioning, and while windows can open, it can be musty and hot.

Old Furniture, Not Vintage

The Malmaison Edinburgh’s furnishings are fun and stylised but some former guests expressed some items were getting tired, worn-out or stained.
