Positive Reviews

Location is great.

If you are travelling to the Twelve Picardy Place hotel from Edinburgh airport, getting there you’ll find it a breeze as there is a tram service straight to the centre of the city and then it’s only a two minute walk to sheer relaxation.

Funky décor.

Guests have remarked that the hotels décor is rather appealing and looks really amazing. The quirky rooms are very clean and are of a decent size with high ceilings, great facilities and delightful bath tubs, there is nothing more you could want after a hard day.

Exquisite meals.

If you decide to opt for a fine dining experience, the hotel has its restaurant in the adjoining sister property The Steak house No.14, that offers all guests staying at the hotel a 10% discount off their meals. Former guests say you can expect nothing less than haute cuisine.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast buffet preferred.

Guests have expressed that they would have preferred a breakfast buffet rather than having a bar located on the premises. If you prefer to start your day with a hearty meal, your choices are either stay somewhere else or to trek to the nearest café.

Noise control.

Guests have suggested that you ask for a room to the rear of the building, as the noise from the front is facing a busy street and levels are quite excessive. The Twelve Picardy Place Hotel is a period property and has no double glazing.

Hike up to all floors.

God forbid you don’t suffer from arthritis and you are young and fit, as the hotel has no lift which is to be expected from a small Georgian property set over three floors. Guests have found it pretty tough going hiking luggage up to these levels.
