This hotel is ideally located with most of Edinburgh just a short walk away. We really enjoyed our stay in a spacious room at the front with great views. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Sarah, the manager, was very helpful!

This hotel has only been open a few weeks and it is perfectly placed on Princes Street literally on the opposite side of Waverley train station exit. We stayed for a few days over Hogmanay and could not fault it. It was right on the street party. It is a quirky hotel similar to other Indigo's across the country and...

We booked this hotel last August and we went just for one night and wish we stayed for two nights. We had a perfect view and it expensive but worth it. Everything just in place and the room is very nice.

Brilliant location for Hogmanay! Room 206 was a very boxes room - no view but very quiet which meant we could have a long sleep without being disturbed. The bar was good fun on New Year's Eve - we popped in and out from the street party all evening and the team were super welcoming. The bar has a huge...

We stayed for New Years' Eve as the location was in the area of the NY celebrations. The hotel is in a great location. We sadly had to move rooms in this property as the first room was smaller than a box room and wasn't cheap (understandable for the New Year period). I'd expect a King superior room which is...

Recently renovated and brought into the Indigo chain. Rooms are excellent standard, good beds , modern bathrooms and air con that works! The location is bang on Princes street so you walk out to great views of the castle and city centre. Slightly deceiving entrance and reception one floor up confused me for a few minutes (they need to do...

The pros with this hotel are the location- it's just perfect. I could've gazed from the dining room all day! The staff are friendly and efficient too. The new decor has made huge improvements without spoiling the age and character of this hotel. Breakfast was delicious and the buffet selection more than adequate. What stopped this from 5/5 was our...

As a regular with Indigo/IHG this new addition in Scotland's capital is perfect for both Leisure and business. Opposite Edinburgh Waverly train station and next to the tram stop from the airport perfect for connecting hassle free. It's only a month old which means there are still remnants of the old hotel visible however the service, comfort and quality of...

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighborhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
