Neighborhood
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.

Lovely hotel, clean and smart with a cosy lounge area, and friendly, helpful staff. I didn't have breakfast or dinner here so I can't really comment on this, but when you go direct you can get breakfast with your stay. Room was lovely, and I got a good deal. I arrived a few

We stayed here overnight after a concert at the Usher Hall. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Usher Hall and there were plenty of eateries/pubs on our route. We’ve stayed at the Brooks Hotel previously and have enjoyed the afternoon tea/prosecco/breakfast deal

My husband and I stayed here for one night last weekend. The room was a bit shabby and cramped, and for £119 it was not good value for money as that did not include any breakfast. On leaving, the reception staff had to be reminded that I had paid a deposit!
