The Ritz Hotel is a grand old lady, quaint yet majestic. It feels homely and welcoming, the perfect retreat for me (single woman visiting Edinburgh for an adventure) and a place I'll certainly come back to. The guys running the show are delightful! And are taking very good care of their guests. So thanks Joe & all! :) After a... More

My wife and I have stayed hear a few times over the past few years but our recent stay was marred by a drop in standards. We always thought that the building has plenty of character but the decor, service, cleanliness and linen is way below the standard you would expect to pay for around £75 per night. None of... More

Great little hotel with loads of character. Well appointed rooms. Great staff. Cheap and affordable. Not 5 star but you get what you pay for. Just like being at home. Found the beds great. Showers not best but good enough to wash. Has TV in rooms. Enjoyed my stay. Will be back.

Stayed at this hotel whilst having a theater weekend away. Great service and a well priced bar, The rooms were of reasonable size and very comfortable. Great value for money, when you consider its location.

We were booked to stay here in September 2014. On arrival to book into the hotel, they could find our reservation but informed us that it had been cancelled by booking.com. This left us stranded after travelling from Ireland on a Saturday evening in Edinburgh. We ended up paying £199 for that night alone! On further investigation after our trip,... More

The hotel is in the centre near train station and airport´s bus stop. It´s old but charming accommodation with agreeable and nice staff. It´s located in soundless street. We were pleased with this hotel.

My other half and I were looking for a place to stay in edinburgh, where we could also bring our dog. This hotel was the cheapest we found, so we didn't have high expectations, so long as it was clean and warm we were going to be satisfied. With that in mind, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is a... More

Superior room it's a scam. We have paied some extra money to have a superior room but we have received a 3 beds room, normal size, not at all king size. After we have complained about it, the poor guy wanted to help us giving us another room, but it was just a garage, so we took the first room.... 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.
