Booked this hotel at the last minute since our main trip to Barcelona was cancelled due to the French Air Traffic controller strike. Booked this hotel via a hotel comparison website and since it was done at the last minute we called up the hotel directly as well just to confirm our booking. The reception we got from Robert and...

Located in New Town, Edinburgh, the Frederick House Hotel is centrally located, allowing easy access to the Scottish National Gallery, the Portrait Gallery, dozens of restaurants and shops. If pubs are your thing, you'll be stumbling distance from Rose Street, a safe, pedestrian street dotted with traditional and trendy watering holes catering to all ages. Two streets from your hotel...

Lovely hotel in a very good location; nice view down the street; helpful and friendly staff; a large, clean room with comfortable beds; a nice bathroom with good water pressure in the shower; decent breakfast across the road -- all in all a very nice, welcoming hotel. One bigger and one smaller complaint: The big one is that we had... More

When I mentioned how awful the mattress was the receptionist almost argued with me & told me most of them were brand new. I... More

I always judge a room by its bathroom and these were great (nothing worse that a shower that dribbles water) ! only complant would be that room was a bit warm, although a common complaint with many hotels. Staff friendly and good breakfast.

Very comfortable clean hotel in the City centre. Excellent value, very friendly helpful staff. Close to many bars and restaurants. A bargain booked through Trvago. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The only drawback is that it hasn't got a car park.

Superb location on edge of New Town in city centre, about 5 - 10 minutes walk from Waverley Railway station. Rooms are fine, especially rooms 1, 2, 3. First night disturbed by rowdy revellers and staff were brilliant in giving me one of the quieter rooms next to front desk. Young lady on desk particularly friendly and helpful. Breakfast served...

I have stayed at this hotel several times, and each time it gets better. Lovely rooms with the best showers in Edinburgh. So close to Princes Street. Kalina [sp?] and the rest of the staff are wonderful.The best thing about the hotel is the staff, who are charming and very helpful with a cheerful and naturel warmth. I cannot think... More

I stayed on the first floor near the reception desk and it was very loud. You could hear the slamming of the door and conversation between the receptionist and guests arriving at the hotel during most of the hours. This was really my only complaint, other than that good location and decent room.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
