Fantastic sized twin room in a well lit basement. Caring, knowledgeable staff. Great breakfast, Just a bit strange being in the next door annexe and the stairs were a bit narrow when carrying luggage.

On arrival the lady on reception was friendly and helpful. However I was shocked when I was asked to pay upfront for the two nights stay. This is usually paid after the stay on checkout. The room was big, bathroom clean and recently decorated. Pillows were dirty, stained and thin. Quilt basic and thin. Room overlooked the back and faced... More

Not my cup of tea, looks not too bad but it is noisy, no space or room for our luggage. We had to carry our bags up steps, no one to help us and not a great location. Sorry but this misses the mark. Our room was on the bottom floor and we were staying for a prolonged period of... More

We stayed here on the nights of April 27-29, 2015, largely due to its location near the tram and bus lines at Haymarket. This charming stone-block hotel is off the main street so there is little traffic noise. Our room was downstairs below the main level in a corner where noise was not an issue. It was a small room,...

I stayed there as the last stop of my tour in UK. If you have a lot of luggage choose a ground floor, there is no elevator. The quality of sleep is really good, it was a really big, comfortable room with street view. Very good located, just 7 mins by foot from Princes Street. The staff is helpful and... More

We stayed here for three nights over new year 2014/15 and couldn't really have been happier with our choice! Granted, we somehow found a mega bargain having booked in around June last year, staying the three nights for a total of just £150, but I must say, even if we had paid the going rate, I would still find some...

We booked to stay at the Haymarket hotel for one night as we were attending a concert and thought we would make a nice treat to stay in Edinburgh after the show. We checked in only to be met with a woman who appeared stressed out as she was attending to some guests in front of us. We were asked... More

We stayed here in February 2015. a very friendly staffed hotel who couldn't help us enough. The room was immaculately cleaned every day. Full Scottish breakfast started the day well with all the attractions a gentle 20 minute stroll away. Recommended for couples wanting to see Edinburgh, but not be right in the middle of things.

we stayed here for 3 nights in March and loved it. We were upgraded to the family room on arrival for free and had a four poster bed which was the comfiest bed I've slept on in hotels/b&b accommodation. I usually suffer with insomnia when I'm away but got off to sleep really well. the hotel is in a good... More

Very clean room, everything you need. Stairwells look a bit tired. Mira shower, worked adequately but not a power shower, but then not advertised as such. Breakfast excellent. I managed to get wifi in room most of the time, although advertised as public areas only.

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.
