There was always bottled water and a latte machine. Eggs could be ordered your way at breakfast. The building had an interesting history. A bar lounge was a good place to meet up in evening. Laundry services were available. Quite a charming place.

I stayed three nights here in early May, 2017. The room was comfortable and clean and the service was very good. Breakfast was also good. And the rate was very reasonable for its central Edinburgh location.

We stayed for five nights and had no complaints. The room was good sized, the bathroom large. We looked out to a nice little park and the castle in the distance. We were on the street side but it was a quiet street, no noise. We walked there from the train, Hay market station. We walked every where. So many...

I would go back and stay at B+B. The staff were really friendly and helpful, always nice and with a smile on their faces. The location was good, took about 15min to walk to the "city" and it was on a calm street.

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.
