The hotel is more or less right in the middle of everything on Banff Ave. However wth that you will hear noise from surrounding bars and nightclubs. We didn't experience it too badly but we did hear the occasional snare drum beat the bar kitty corner the hotel. Also, there is parking in a parkade near by but you have...

Disgustingly loud people til 3am in the morning, staff in the hallways banging as well at the crack of dawn, weird fan/machine noises through the night... Just not good at all. I see why it was $49 a night U.S. I gave it 2 stars because you cannot beat the location, and the room itself was clean and comfortable. I...

The hotel is conveniently located, the room/hallways were clean, the beds (2 single beds is what we chose) were comfortable, and the amenities (e.g. toiletries, tea/coffee) were acceptable. We also had a decent price, comparatively speaking, for a Saturday night in ski season. The downside to this hotel is that the location/price attract a younger crowd who don't hesitate to...

We spent a night in Banff at King Edward Hotel. The rooms were clean. The hotel is located on main street and the prices are very reasonable. If you are looking for a great deal and if you just need a room to sleep as there is no point to be in Banff to stay in your room, this hotel...

The hotel was clean, not super fancy but no complaints. Reception was helpful and friendly. The location is exceptional, central Banff. The price is super affordable. Location and price are their high points.

Like other reviewers, we agree that the location cannot be beat. The rooms are adequate. The room we stayed in had a broke bed frame and despite the efforts of the young night manager, it could not be fixed. Due to this condition as well as concern about my senior mother navigating the elevator (you use a key) we neede...

The service desk was average. Not too friendly but not rude. It was a long wait before we could get our room even though we got there on time. The view from the room was great, and the service help for navigation was excellent. One of the worst parts about this hotel was that there was no fridge in our...

Great location. We walked all over town. Rooms are very small and bathroom even smaller. Was lovely to look out the window and see the busy main street filled with flower boxes in front of every shop. The deer came walking in the street at 5am. It was a bit noisy for the night life is opposite the hotel, but...

Stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. Liked our hotel, rooms were satisfactory was in centre of everything, was walking distance to all that we wanted to visit and do. Felt safe with the key feautre of the elevator use. Just had a rowdy drunk neighbor for a night but otherwise hotel was quiet.
