We travel a lot and have stayed in many hotels. The Bonham is not a Four Star hotel, it's a Two Star hotel. Think Motel 6. My husband and I had wanted to stay at the Bonham since our last trip to Edinburgh in 2008, we were then staying at the Edinburgh Residence and had breakfast at The Bonham daily.... More

Have just returned from our second stay at The Bonham. We were attending events at The Commonwealth Games, and although expensive, this hotel was a cheaper option and far superior than anything on offer in Glasgow. The hotel is only appoximately 5 minutes walk from Haymarket station so easy for our journeys into Glasgow. Our bijou room (209) was indeed... More

Had a wonderful 1 night's stay at this beautiful hotel. The staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. The room was amazing and the food was delicious. Could not fault this hotel. So Close to Edinburgh but in such a quiet location. Would not hesitate to return there and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

No one in out party had a negative thing to say. Very much exceeded our expectations and helped make a great weekend for us. Room excellent too. Brill.

We stayed at the Bonham Hotel at the start and at the end of a Rick Steves 10-day tour of Scotland. Both the rooms we had were large. The hotel identifies itself as a "Luxury Boutique Hotel". I might classify it as a very nice business hotel. All of the hotel's staff are very polished. The hotel is located near... More

We have just returned from Edinburgh for a fabulous weekend, watching the BBC concert and Tom Jones, as always the Scottish hospitality was second to none. We had read so many good reviews about this hotel so it was all the more disappointing when we checked in, the hotel itself is obviously every "foodies" paradise, they have concentrated heavily on...

Beautiful quiet hotel close to Princes Street but tucked enough away. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and from around the world. They had excellent restaurant recommendations. The breakfasts are amazing and very hearty.

We stayed here for one night as we were four ladies wedding dress shopping. Quirky little place. Very comfortable and clean. Staff really helpful & friendly. Well priced. Excellent breakfast. Will certainly stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bonham is a boutique hotel in Scotland with a very contemporary spirit. It occupies a series of Victorian buildings in the West End of Edinburgh, whose soaring natural proportions have allowed us to create a truly dynamic set of rooms and public spaces. At The Bonham hotel in Edinburgh, we have used bold colour, rich texture and contemporary art and photography to build an environment that is fun, upbeat, welcoming and with the unmistakable buzz of being part of a great Scottish city.There are 49 boutique rooms and suites at The Bonham, each individually styled so that, among them, you will almost certainly find the one you have been waiting for. ... more   less
