This hotel was in a great location , just a ten minute walk from Princess street - the main street in Edinburgh. We arrived early (about 12) and check in wasnt for hours but the lady had our room prepared so we got to check in early. Very friendly and helpful staff at reception desk. Interior was a bit dated...

Typical britain's small hotel (old style, moquette on the stairs, etc), not so far from the city center and near to the bus stop. Perfect for a fast trip but not so cheap. The staff is friendly and affordable

I stayed here back in February. My room was very cheap and for the money it was very good. The breakfast room was rather dated and service was very slow. It would be nice if there was a lounge area to relax rather than just the room.

We had a lovely stay in a large beautifully furnished room. The hotel was clean and tidy with a nice atmosphere.The rooms are kept very warm so if you are a cold bug this is wonderful, but if you don't like too much heat you need to turn down the heating. Remus and his colleagues were a delight and nothing... More

I stayed here on a thursday and friday night it was really good and well priced and a short 3 minute walk from the Haymarket station. I stayed in a double room with 2 double beds which was amazing after some of the previous stays this week in other cities with single beds. The hotel staff was friendly, I had... More

We stayed in a basement room that was bright, spotlessly clean, warm & with a modern bathroom. The hotel is very handy for Haymarket station & buses & trams to Edinburgh & the Zoo. We walked to Edinburgh every time which was a pleasant 20 min stroll. No complaints about the breakfast which is served between 7.30 & 10am. The... More

We visited Edinburgh in February and stayed for two nights there. Our first impression was a definite negative one, once we realised that our room smelled horrible and that the bedclothes weren't changed at all and filled with someone else's hair.We arrived around 11 o'clock, to be fair, so a bit earlier than expected and that might be a semi-plausible...

My boyfriend and I chose to stay at this hotel about a week go. We were expecting more for our money to be honest with you, that's not to say we didn't have a good stay. We arrived fairly late, about 10pm, a pair of sorry sights with our luggage and under eye bags having taken an evening flight up... More

The hotel is close to Haymarket station on a pleasant terraced street. The building is pretty old, but very clean and well maintained. We were given a large, family room which was amply heated despite the size. Breakfast was good and included hot and cold options including tea and coffee. The owners were very friendly and obliging, allowing us to... 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.
