I have never been in a hotel that cost almost £100 night out of season and had to drink out of a disposable tumbler! BUY toiletries at reception for £1.50 a time .... Ordered a taxi ... went down 10 minutes before it was due and waited and waited. Went to reception to be told that it had been early?...

A very nice hotel very close to pubs, bars and restaurants situated down cobbled walkways and a short walk to the Castle. Location wise I would give it 5 out of 5, it was a short walk from Princes street. The hotel staff were friendly and our room was pleasant and clean. Breakfast is had across the road at Rick's,...

We had a large room for 4 people. The beds were not very comfortable and there was a lot of noise from the street. The personnel was super nice to us and they tried to accommodate us to move to a different room. (If you use the toilet in the basement be sure to note that the light will switch...

If you are looking for a place to stay in Edinburgh that is cost effective look no further than this hotel, it was cheaper than Travel Lodge and so much better, the room we had was far better than we expected and situated in walking distance to everything that we wanted. Don't worry about the breakfast being served in the...

We stayed there for just one night and it was great. The hotel is so close to the Princes Street and all the shops. You can easily reach the hotel by Tram or Airlink. Unfortunately the breakfast was a bit poor (you have to cross the street to a Café) so I'd recommend to book without breakfast and eat somewhere...

When we first arrived late at night, we were greeted by the man at the front desk (never got his name) but he made us feel right at home. Extremely friendly and helpful as to what to do in the city. Beds were comfortable and room was very spacious! And what a deal on the price. Location was a 8...

I had read several earlier reviews of this hotel saying that it could do with some re-decorating. I booked anyway, expecting slightly tatty decor and chipped paintwork. Well, the required work has been done! In fact, I'm quite sure it has because the smell of new paint was still quite noticeable during my stay. And very tasteful it is too....

I stayed here for 2 nights and chose another location nearer to high street to shorten my walking distance because I'm lazy. I wished that I had also booked the 3rd night at Frederick's as well. It not that far from any place in town if you are walking. The clerk at check in gave me very good tips about...

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
