The King James Hotel has lots of fans on TripAdvisor:
‘A very pleasant stay, friendly staff. The hotel was really nice whilst in a great location to Princes Street and Edinburgh Waverly. We had a large top floor room, decor was as expected but we didn’t plan on spending our time in the room anyway… I’d recommend the hotel to anyone who visits Edinburgh…’
‘Great stay in a beautiful city. We found the hotel really welcoming, staff all very friendly and helpful… Room was very clean and the bed was huge. We enjoyed drinks in the bar and the food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Everyone we encountered from housekeeping staff, bar staff, receptionists and waitresses couldn’t have been nicer. Can’t wait to return to the hotel and explore this beautiful city further.’
