great budget hotel for visiting my friend in the Capital. Very central. Rooms are small but clean and do what they are supposed to. Shower room also very small but shower is fantastic. Would recommend for a short stay in the city.

My daughter & I stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting family in Edinburgh, & we opted for this hotel because of its excellent location & very low prices. We knew in advance, from tripadvisor reviews, that the rooms would be - ahem - 'petite', & indeed they were, so no surprise there. We had a room each so the lack... More

This budgetary hotel is located in princes street which is the center of Edinburgh, it has all the shops and is has a spectacular view of the Castle of Edinburgh. Personally I've found it very helpful that it is very close to Edinburgh Waverley train station as I traveled frequently using the train during my visit so that's an added... More

I've stayed in this hotel 4 times now and have been happy with it each time. If you look at it as just a place to sleep, not hang out, it's perfect. The rooms are TINY but you get what you pay for, and the location is perfect. Right on Princes Street is hard to beat. I've stayed in the... More

Clean room, comfortable double bed. No space for two people to walk about. The shower/toilet cubicle was adequate; towels and toiletries provided. I booked well in advance for a stay between an incoming and outgoing flight and paid less than £30. The location is hard to fault, right on Princes Street close to all the attractions and the tram or... More

Wow, not only was this a very affordable hotel but the view was breath taking being able to look out at a beautiful castle when you wake up is a dream come true. The hotel room is made for only two people but if you are traveling with only a few people this is well worth it because you have... More

We stayed here over a particularly expensive weekend in Edinburgh in Feb 2015, mainly because it was available and because the price was much more affordable than other options in the area on those days. We went into it knowing that the place would be small, and had read all the info about how they keep the place cheap (so... More

I knew that in easyhotels everything is "easy", but I was anyway disappointed. No lifts, not so clean, noisy and toilet smaller than in a boat! The real positive things were the stunning view of the Castle from my windows and the good position. We had the room shown in the picture, it has big windows, so it was very... More

Stopped in plenty of easyjet hotel's so knew what to expect. The room was nice and clean and the location was perfect not to far to walk to most areas and some nice shops and restaurants around the area on Princess St.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighborhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
