We stayed at the Rutland upon our arrival in Edinburgh. We arrived early in the morning. The young lady on the front desk was lovely. Our room was not ready but the hotel gladly kept our luggage and called us when it was ready. We were upgraded to the one bedroom apartment which was well appointed and comfortable. Really enjoyed...

We just stayed here, 21 September - 25 September, and really enjoyed our stay. It is indeed an ideal location from which to explore this lovely city. We stayed in a junior suite, which had plenty of room. Cleanliness and all the basics certainly were there - highlights were the quiet (despite being right off of very busy Georges Street),... More

We hadn't booked for dinner at their restaurant, Kyloe but the reception manager very kindly arranged a table for us. The food was amazing! Steaks were perfect. Great service from the waiting staff.

Arrived to the hotel, and the great news was that we got an upgrade. We got apartment #17 which was incredible! The decoration was absolutely fabulous and the apartment had a great kitchen and living room. There even was a flat iron!

This small hotel has a lot of charm an is quiet, clean, and has all modern amenities. We had a view if the street scene and the castle beyond from our room. One really nice feature in the room was a surround sound system where you play via Bluetooth from your own device. It even played in the bathroom, which... More

Arrived at The Rutland before the check in time. We were greeted by friendly reception staff who stored our bags so we could go off exploring. Upon arrival back some hours later our bags had been delivered to room 6 which was absolutely huge and beautifully decorated. Comfy big bed. Flat screen TV. Dressing table. Big mirrored wardrobes.

This hotel looks down Princes Street in Edinburgh, the main shopping street. Our room (11) had a splendid but quiet view of both the trams passing and the Castle. What more do you want? We both slept well, something of a surprise. We dined elsewhere but breakfasted in the hotel where service was rather relaxed and disorganised. When coffee didn't... More

Everything wonderful. Location, room, staff and services, dining. Can't say enough good things I left a significant amount of money in room. Called day after we checked out and they had it for me. Such honesty and went out of their way to make sure I got it.

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.
