We stayed at the Bonham - twice - in June. There is a lift, so no need to haul your luggage up the staircase. Our first room (401) was very nice with a view of the Dean Village area and the water. 401 was very roomy and had a skylight in the bathroom. The WiFi access point was just outside... More

We stayed here for three nights. The standard room was fine, except for us the bed was a liitle on the small side (one matrass). The hotel can use a little freshing up. The upholstery on the chairs in the lobby are torn, the carpet in the hotel looks rather dirty. On the other side, the staff is excellent. The... More

Our last multiple night stay in Scotland, the Bonham exceeded our expectations. The staff members were very accommodating and excelled at service, from checkin to checkout. There was a problem with the WiFi in the room we were assigned and we had some trouble connecting while in the lobby area. We were move to a different room on the second... More

This hotel is in a nice location. The room was large and had an excellent view. The overall feel was a bit down at the heels. But the service at the front desk and lounge were indifferent at best and generally unhelpful.

Really convenient for seeing sights, lovely room, lots of character, pleasant helpful staff, pay a little extra for superior room if you can but doubt it is essential as high ceilings would make rooms feel big anyway.

We stayed here recently for 1 night while having a special meal elsewhere in the city. Having stayed previously for a birthday celebration we knew it was good. There's a small car park at the rear so we headed straight there and entered by the back door. The receptionist is a bit surly till you speak to him and he's... More

I stayed here on business recently with colleagues for an event being held locally. Fantastic customer service from the staff who helped me organise a corporate dinner in the restaurant on our first night. The service for the dinner was a little slow, and one of our guests had to miss his dessert as it was getting on to taking... More

I had lived in Edinburgh for years and have walked past this hotel many times when on my way to and from the city centre. Whilst travelling I stayed here when returning to Edinburgh for a weekend. The hotel has kept a lot of the original features of this lovely building. It is spacious and almost maze-like (which I love)... More

My boyfriend and I were staying in Edinburgh for a couple nights on a trip to the UK. After literally hours (probably days) deliberating on hotels, we decided to splurge on this one, and it was one of the best choices we made for our trip.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
