Historcal hotel in perfect location

The Caledonian (Waldorf) is located precisely between New Town and Old Town. Easy walk to everything with great views of the castle from some of the rooms. The staff is excellent, from concierge to the knowledgeable bartenders. My only critique is the hotel is older and going through a refresh and street noise can be a little excessive at times. I would definitely stay here again.

We could not get in our room until nearly 4 p.m or later. The service was just okay. It is very, very expensive, for what you actually get. The breakfast was nice and service was fairly good there. I got the impression that they were short staffed. The location is good and we had a beautiful view of the castle from our room. Would probably stay elsewhere next time.

Friendly welcoming service. Lovely common areas and the room was beautiful. In particular we were blow away by the view of the castle from our room. Worth it!

My wife and I enjoyed three glorious night in a Castle view suite. The hotel is amazing with so much to offer and they take very good care of their guests. The Galvin Brasserie Deluxe and The Pompadour are both fantastic restaurants. We wish we were still there!
