Felt like a four star...
Liked: Everything was perfect. The room was small (a single) but very well appointed, comfortable, clean, pretty. The bathroom looked new. Great shower. They cleaned the room daily without having to request it. The staff was pleasant and helpful. And the breakfast was amazing (hot food from the kitchen and a nice buffet). The attention at the restaurant (where breakfast is served) is outstanding. The hotel is not in the touristy center of town. I find that a plus. There are 3 different buses just outside the door. They all take you to the Royal Mile in 5 minutes. Two go on through Princes St. One takes you to Leith, where you can tour the yacht Britannia. The setting is beautiful, next to Arthur's Seat, in the university area. I've been to a number of three star hotels in the UK. This one is clearly better.

Liked: Comfort and style
Disliked: Arrived late so had to check in with the scott.. No door bell, so we were a while waiting for someone to answer the door

A great place to stay,...
Liked: The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It was the perfect location for us to stay as my husband was doing the Edinburgh marathon so we were the right side of town. We hadn’t booked breakfast but ended up having it all 3 mornings - it was very reasonably priced when pre-booking the day before and had a great selection, including porridge, perfect for race day!
Disliked: Something on draft in the bar would be a great addition.

Great rooms, Excellent bathrooms, Well...
Liked: The Scholar is a well managed hotel, great room and a very comfortable bed. In fact the bathroom was spacious and modern. The whole facility is both modern and homely - excellent facilities all round. Great location and handy bus options for accessing Edinburgh city centre. The best part of the location is that it is a quiet neighbourhood.
