Excellent location just round from Haymarket station. Very clean and well presented rooms and friendly staff. Only problem was that the water lay in the bottom of the shower tray and did not drain away even after 10 mins without any more water being added.

This Hotel is well located. That's it. It's on the way centre-airport, serviced by a tram (5£ pp). Bar, deli and taxi around the corner. Impossible to park in the Street, very few slots not dedicated to residents, the closer parking (16£ overnight) is at 15 minutes walk. Policemen control every hour and give stupid fines.

The hotel is very close to haymarket great for the tram and buses. It is also close to tje town centre. The staff are all welcoming and helpful. And the rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. Only drawback is that the rooms are quite stuffy. The hotel is clean and well maintained throughout.

We came to Edinburgh for a family visit and chose the pirie hotel because we thought it would be a quaint hotel in the old style of Scottish buildings high ceilings and space.

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.
