I spent 5 nights at the hotel. When I checked in I didn't like the room so I went back to reception to request a change. The hotel reception staff were very helpful, I was served by an exceptionally professional and friendly lady called Nikola. She is the only why I would return to this dated hotel! The staff were...

I arrived at this hotel as a member of a group. The reception staff were very friendly and efficient and room keys were issued quickly. I was still at the reception area when some of our group returned to reception stating that was what appeared to be blood on the bed sheet and in another room what appeared to be... More

Stayed with the other half to celebrate graduation for 3 nights. Our logic was "We'll only be in the hotel to sleep and eat breakfast, so it doesn't matter that much - plus, if we save money on accommodation, we can do more in the city". Terrible Idea. I'll keep it in a list format to make it easier to... More

We were situated in an inside room so it was a little stuffy with no air. Big big big room! Bed was a bit hard. Breakfast was good and reasonable. Great locations. Within walking distance of many places. Be aware lots of tour byes use this location.

Stayed here for work in mid July, the price is very good, however rooms are very basic. What I did like is that they have an iron in the rooms and I was able to give my shirts the once over but the bathroom despite being huge I found the toilet roll holder about 3 metres away from the toilet...

Just spent two nights at this hotel. Rooms are very basic but are clean and comfortable. Very good location for walking to city centre. Princes street approx 20 minute walk. Good value for money in terms of the room but never ate at the on site facilities. My only gripe is the lack of attention and customer service the reception... More

We fortunately spent only one night at this hotel, choosing it as not too expensive. But a great disappointment. For sure we could have found something better, would even have been happy to pay more. The person at the reception when we arrived on Friday 15/11 afternoon was not very nice, a smile never killed anyone. Our room, number 20,... More

Not good, I couldn't sleep because they have an emergency light inside the room that is impossible to switch off. Besides that, as it was no windows and the room was a bit hot, was no way to get it a bit of air or cool down. Also the bathroom has no extractor for the humidity, plus the curtain on... More

One of the worst places I've ever stayed in my life. The pictures shown on the web does not do justice to the harsh reality. We went to do the check-in about 14.00 hours and the room was not available which is totally understandable, we have decided to visit the city then as we didn’t want to waste any time... More

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.
