Staff were friendly and attentive, and the castle view is great, but I felt the room was overpriced for the value. Free WIFI is only available for 30 minutes a day, windows couldn't be opened and the toilet smelt strongly of disinfectant.

Right in the heart of Edinburgh close to all the main attractions the Premier Inn on Princes street is excellent value for money. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and polite and the breakfast is fresh and plentiful. No complaints whatsoever.

I stayed here with 2 of my friends for 2 nights and I am so glad that my friend chose this hotel!! First of all the hotel is in a fantastic location for tourists - the trams, buses and stations are no more than 10 minutes away and the hotel has a fantastic view of the Castle. Also, there is...

The location of this Premier Inn could not be any more ideal, in the middle of Princes Street, a couple of minutes walk away from a Tram stop which takes about 30minutes to get to the airport. We had a room at the back of the hotel so we didn't have a castle view which I was initially disappointed with,... More

From arriving the service was amazing. We left our bags at the hotel when we arrived and when we were waiting for the train on the Sunday afternoon without an issue. The hotel was easy to find next to Starbucks. Check in was easy and the information provided by Corrina was also top quality. We went for a meal deal... More

Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the location as it was centrally located to all the major sites. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise given most European options. Dinner was also good after a full day of touring. Starbucks right next door also helped ;)

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.
