Stayed at the Premier Inn on Princes street for 2 nights. I had checked in on line before visiting so that made check in really quick and easy. Room was for a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. It had one double,one single bed and a pull out bed. It was clean and adequate for our visit. Bathroom was... More

Brilliant location, on Princes Street, opposite the Castle and in the heart of the shopping strip. Castle views from the restaurant which also offered a special Summer menu. The usual high level of comfort and facilities found in all Premier Inns and very friendly and helpful staff. John, the Manager, seems to be everywhere all the time! Would definitely stay... More

Good sized room with modern appointments. Clean and efficient. The location is ideal. Great for business or pleasure. Shower and tub, tea/coffee maker, desk, sofa. Very comfy bed. It's a little hard to find. The entrance is just a door next to Starbucks and you take an elevator to the second floor for the reception kiosk. The only negative is... More

After staying in a lot of premier inns all over the country I knew what to expect, but I have to say this is the best one I have stayed in. The manager and his team deserve 10 out of 10 for care and attention to every detail. The hotel is spotless. The breakfast is amazing, with so much choice.... More

We (7 friends) spent 3 enjoyable nights visiting Edinburgh at this hotel. Very friendly staff. Great location near royal mile and castle where we saw the Tatoo (which was amazing). We and another couple were accommodated with rooms overlooking the castle (which may not always be available). Our twin room was clean and adequate. The bathtub/shower required a high step... More

A long check-in: the trainee in charge of reception insisted we had booked 5 rooms not 2 rooms. It took some time to unravel. I had booked the rooms 9 months in advance & completed online check-in 2 days before arrival. I had rung to request a low floor room because I don't use lifts. I was told two "reception... More

There was a double-booking problem with our room so we were offered a lovely room with a great view of the Edinburgh Castle as compensation. The staff are so polite and helpful with suggestions of places to go. The bed was comfy! Breakfast was great! Perfect way to start each day. And you can't fault the hotel location - right... More

We stayed here for six nights overall. Great location on Princes Street right opposite the Castle. It's about 10 minutes walk from Waverely Station at the other end of Princes St and about 10 minutes from the Old City (Castle and Royal Mile). Princes Street is the main shopping street. The Premier Inn has a winning formula if you are... More

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.
