We stayed at Edinburgh Capital Hotel for over a week while visiting relatives -convenient to the airport and their house. Did not have a car but could easily take a bus into town . Used taxi twice. The hotel was very nice and very clean, something I am particular about. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a large standard room with a queen bed. View from our window was beautiful: we could see the Forth and Pentlands. Used the gym and pool and was happy with them. Full Scottish breakfast large and good quality, also with a variety of cereals, fruits, cheese and beverages same every day, however. There were 2 large parties on the weekend but our room was extremely quiet. (In response to other review: for washcloths,bring your own, not usually supplied in UK or EU) Hotel refurbished in 2005&very slightly worn, only reason for "Very Good" rating.
