Myself and my partner wanted to enjoy a nice night in Edinburgh to celebrate our anniversary! We booked the old Waverley as we have stayed a couple of times before. We paid the little extra to get a room with a Princes Street view and...More
Right on Princess Street within a very easy walk of Waverley train station. Good views from bar area as the hotel is elevated above the ground floor. Not very suitable for those who can't climb stairs. Decent rooms. Stayed in what they described as a...More

I like this hotel as it is ideally located on Princes Street and it is a nice old building but it is maybe a little tired. I have stayed a couple of times and the staff are always nice and friendly but the rooms clearly...More
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.
Depends on the booking. I booked through a booking site and could choose between two prices - one with breakfast included and one without.
Breakfast there is really good though, and well worth the price.
