This hotel was booked by a friend for a girly weekend away. I read the reviews after it had been booked and was horrified, especially as we couldn't cancel without losing our money. I was absolutely dreading it I was imagining all sorts but I was pleasantly surprised! Yes it definitely needs a refurbishment, outside of the hotel puts you... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. It was cheap, but still very nice. Compared to Ibis budget in Glasgow it was heaven. When we read the reviews on the way to Edinburgh we were horrified, but found that most of the horrible reviews were not true as soon as we entered the room.... More

This hotel well located for Princes Street. Rooms comfortable - we also had nice view overlooking the river although there was also a weir which made it quite noisy through the night even with window closed. We were bed and breakfast and food was fine. Staff could do with some training in how to speak and smile at their customers... More

Horrible experience... Charged twice and no one responding even after 10 days. Worst experience ever. Do not go there. Manager and staff are not responding even after so many calls. No one is picking up at the reception number. They gave same room number to 3 couples... Horrible

We have just returned today from a 2 night stay at this hotel. After reading recent reviews about this hotel we actually considered cancelling it but decided to go through anyway. We found all the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, towels nice and soft and the bed comfy. We asked for 2 extra pillows... More

This hotel is in the throes of a refurb, much needed, it is obviously an ex Travelodge, Room was ok, at least bath and shower were clean. No Towels or milk on arrival. Bed was not made although we were there 2 nights, bit of a "DIY" job! But good location away from the hustle and bustle, walkable to princes... 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.
