It could be great, It is walking distance from the city centre, public transportation in the corner and only one block from Haymarket train station. BUT this hotel needs a deep reimbursement, especially in rooms and bathrooms

When we are chosing hotels for city trips, we look for three things: location, WiFi and breakfast. The hotel was offered by our travel agency as a flight+hotel deal, so we can not tell much on regular prizes. And yes: it is in an acceptable reach to the city centre of Edinburgh. The room we got was less tidy and... More

Booked a bed for two. Wanted to take my mother away somewhere nice. But they gave us a room with cracks all over the walls, damp and hair all over the carpet. The sink kept blocking and the place was very dated. It was just so disgusting and I couldn't believe I payed so much for this place. I felt... More

As the title suggests, s rather basic hotel that is quite run down and okay if you are looking for a place just to go back and sleep. They have no restaurant and a simple breakfast is served in the bar, which doubles up as a reception.

We stayed here for my partner's first trip to Edinburgh and couldn't have picked a better place, it was a nice ten minute walk from Princes Street so close to the centre without being in the middle of it. The room was just spectacular, a gorgeous four poster bed. Staff were friendly. Nice place for a romantic getaway. We actually... More

Booked this by phone over a month before travel after problems with booking sites. Prices go up and mysteriously only a couple of rooms were still available when you go back to the web site. Worst was the Hilton across the road, who repeatedly offered a price in adverts, but it was double when you tried to book. In the... More

We went to stay in this hotel as a mini break away, after travelling from Ireland we arrived at the hotel early in the morning and requested that if possible could the hotel store our bags until check in time whilst we went to explore. Our bags were stored and we left for the day the hotel manager informed us... More

Having read some of the reviews about this hotel I'm wondering if these people stayed in the same hotel. My partner booked this hotel as a surprise overnight stay in Edinburgh for us. The pictures which were on the booking site are not a true reflection of what you actually get. According to the new owners these pictures are old... More

Our assigned room had no toilet seat. After complaining, we were given a different room. The windows wouldn't lock and there was mold on the frames. Paint was peeling on woodwork. Exposed mattress base was old and stained. Linens felt and looked like they had been used since the 1950's. Broken towel rack. Broken kettle. No handle on inside of... 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.
