Stayed at the hotel on a Saturday night and it was absolutely lovely. Very clean, beautifully decorated and the staff were so friendly! We came early in the morning and left later the next day so they kindly let us store our baggage while we wandered around the city in the day. Would definitely stay here again!

We can't rave enough about the Rutland. We reserved apartments well in advance and when shown to #15 units #1 and 3, we couldn't believe how beautiful, modern, well-appointed, large, and comfortable they were and the price was so very reasonable. Located within walking distance of the Royal Mile and its sights and shopping makes it the perfect place to... More

We have just returned from a 2-night stay at the Rutland hotel. On check-in we were told that we were being upgraded due to the fact there was availability (which isn't always the case) and we were celebrating a wedding anniversary/40th birthday combination. We were given an apartment which was just a few doors down from the hotel. The facilities... More

Stayed here recently. Place stinks lifts don't go all the way up. Bath nice but surround sound with blue tooth was a nightmare to work, even the 'engineer' couldn't work it, I eventually managed. Accusing customers of taking mini bar items when they've already paid a fortune on room service is a disgrace.

We stayed in No 15,apartment 3,which is very luxurious. Beautifully decorated throughout & extremely comfortable..... Staff @ The Rutland are very welcoming & friendly,can't do enough for the guests,particularly Jamie on reception,who was friendly,informative & helpful. Had an evening meal on Saturday night in ' kyloe' which was outstanding,best steak ever :) Definitely worth more than one return visit.....

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June. The room was functional, yet decorated nicely. The large bathtub was well appreciated after multiple nights of super small showers at B&Bs. The free muffins upon arrival were much appreciated as was the included breakfast at the hotel's restaurant. While there is not onsite parking the validated parking structure... More

Stayed in room 4 which was huge. The bed was illuminated around the base and the white leather bedhead. Very impressive. Hotel in close proximity to Edinburgh Castle and the shopping and eating precincts. Loved the cafe downstairs which was connected to the hotel.

Just finished up three nights at the Rutland Hotel. The hotel itself was a little dated, but the staff was beyond excellent. Two front desk people in particular (Jamie and Wojtek..sorry if I spelled those wrong) were fantastic. The hotel is located perfectly for traveling around Edinburgh on foot...as I did. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. The... More

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.
