King Edward Hotel
Ranked #27 of 28 Banff B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Nice hotel on the main street of Banff, near all the gift shops, bars ,restaurants.
Things to improve:
TV remote controls are unavailable
No breakfast.
Was a little bit noisy due to parties in the bars outside
Things that were nice
popcorn machine, microwave available
We traveled not at very high season( at May), so the free parking behind hotel was available for the night

Room Tip: choose room window not to the main street if you want quite, opposite if you want to have a view on...

this hotel can be had for a lot cheaper if you wait for a sale or coupon posted on-line.although
the place needs some imorovements, but hey, if its centrally located where coffee shops,lively
bristros,family restaurants,all kind of shops that sell from nik-naks to trendy ones are all within
a few steps away. just request rooms away from the main street if you want peace and quiet.

Room Tip: rooms on the west (alley) side are quieter

We have stayed here twice and we love this hotel. The location is amazing, the availability of heated secured parking, in room coffee maker and friendly staff makes this our place of choice.

Yes, it's a little tired and could use some updates, but you get what you pay for. Having traveled extensively through Europe and Asia, this place could be considered a very nice place to stay, based on some of the places we have been. :)

If you like a value and are not looking for anything other than a hot shower and a place to have a sleep, this the place for you.

We stayed two nights in the King Edward Hotel, in Banff, Alberta. The service was decent. Overall the hotel was pretty dingy. The floor was more comfortable than the bed, there was what looked to be blood on the top blanket, no fitted sheet on the bed so it kept sliding off. My next visit to Banff I'll spend a few more dollars to sleep in a clean comfy bed. Also don't exchange your money their. Take it down the street, it's way cheaper.

Took almost an hour to check in. Beds are horrible. Hotels in desperate need of a renovation, old and dusty. May be cheap but not worth any money. Also bedbugs.
