A friend booked a twin room at this hotel. It was functional, but pretty poor - think substandard hostel experience. The beds were far, far too soft (seriously, by just sitting on the bed I was at risk of toppling off it - the mattress was *that* soft). There was no hot water when we returned after a night out...

The toilet sisten was constantly filling due to a faulty ballcock, making it difficult to sleep without ear plugs,water went cold halfway through having a shower, the decor and furniture were worn and dated, apart from that it was pretty average really

I had initially booked the Hilton across the road for a function but with parties expected to run till 6am, I decided not to stay in the hotel just in case the music was loud and this was half the price so thought I would take the chance. Yes, is dated but I wasn't expecting some fancy hotel in this... More

I would assume everywhere in Edinburgh puts up their prices around Hogmanay and that's understandable but after paying well over €500 for this place for three nights, I can say I wouldn't stay again. The staff were absolutely lovely and the first night we got a lovely little bottle of Scotch Whiskey which was a lovely touch. However the room... More

Having read a few reviews, I was not expecting anything good. Some insect bites? A broken bed? No hot water? My advice is to go expecting exactly that, as you will come away as delightfully relieved as I did. The hotel was a bit dated, but the room was huge, it was clean, and it was comfortable. The curtains are... More

If your looking for a modern, glitzy hotel, then don't book this hotel...!! I booked this hotel for one night only last weekend, as although I live only a few miles away over the Firth of Forth, the Forth Bridge was shut and we had to stay over after a Xmas night out with my wife. I searched Late Rooms... More

Stayed here last week while shopping in Edinburgh. Staff were friendly, room was clean and location was perfect. Betty's Bar was really cozy and warm, nice atmosphere. Good value and will be back again.

Its a shame as this hotel has great potential ! however it seems to have been forgotten a bit. The room felt very cold and I felt uncomfortable in the room, luckily we only stayed the one night, I couldn't have stayed any longer, however, we paid £79 for the privilege. The only positive was the bed was very comfortable.... 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.
