A pleasant stay.
I enjoyed my stay at the Leonardo Edinburgh City. It was welcoming and the room was as stated;a standard room. I was on the ground floor so not a brilliant view. The breakfast was tasty and plenty of choice. I would recommend this hotel as it is approximately 20 minutes walk to the Royal Mile and on a main bus route.

Great well located hotel
We were very happy with the Leonardo. On Inirial impressions it looks a bit like a backpackers, but it is well located, the reception staff were very friendly helpful. We had a ground floor room which was clean, a good size and very quiet. We did not have breakfast there. Location is great, close to Grassmarket, local restaurants and buses as well as the tour bus stop. Would definitely go back.
