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

Out of all the hotels my mum and I could have chosen we certainly were meant to stay at the Ritz Hotel. It was quaint, endearing and has lots of character.From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and our whole experience and time staying there was relaxed, peaceful and with plenty of laughter.The staff were...

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.

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.
