Worst hotel. $500 for thee nights I thought I was getting something decent. Old run down hotel. Elevator smells like a veterinarians office. Walls are paper thing so it is extremely noisy. Management lets people party in the hall ways past 4pm!!! We got absolutely no sleep. I see why they charge your credit card at the beginning of the...

King Edward was the perfect place for a long weekend. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was warm. It is right on the Main Street so as for location, it doesn't get any better. The rooms aren't as small as I had expected with many other reviews making a...

Great location on Banff avenue for a good price. The bus stop is just outside which will take you to all the attractions. The wifi is good. The room wasn't warm enough. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. I would stay here again when I'm in town.

Incredibly impressed with the King Edward. After reading the reviews, I was a little skeptical, but couldn't go past the price. You will not find a cheaper hotel in a better location. Beds were extremely comfortable & the linen was beautiful. Rooms were small, but when you're in a town like Banff, you don't spend much time in your room...

Yes the rooms are small but for the price you pay and the location in downtown it is second to none for value for money especially when travelling with others. The internet is a little hit and miss but aside from this I would very strongly recommend staying here.

We chose to stay overnight at the last minute during a day trip to Banff last October, so we could wake up early the next morning and do the gondola trip up the mountain. The KEH was convenient, had underground parking and was reasonable in price, but the rooms had (IMO) too much furniture, leading to the sideways shuffle around...

I stayed here with my partner in a queen room in mid- late October and we were very impressed. When we checked in the front desk staff were very helpful and friendly and knew of their surroundings! The rooms were nice and clean and had just everything that we required, and if we happened to need anything extra the front...

Stayed here for two nights and used it as a base to see the site in and around Banff. Just a basic room. There are no services here, just housekeeping. The room was small, but very well kept. Only two floors of rooms, second and third floor. The lobby was very small too, but it does save on congestion as...

Banff is a beautiful town but outrageously expensive. Hotels are all overpriced but this historic one is reasonable if your are looking for somewhere to stay overnight only - it has no services. The room is small but clean and comfortable. Stayed here almost 35 years ago on a ski trip and not much has changed. The Banff Avenue downtown...

Stayed here one night, moved for the second. It was a very small room, with a tiny window, very dark. No services with the hotel, ie no restaurant, breakfast or bar and the reception is only open quite limitied hours. No parking at the hotel, so you have to ferry from the limited free parking building a couple of blocks...
