We are learning to love Premier Inn's for their disabled access. This one on Princes Street was fantastic. The room we book was a wet room with a walk in shower with a seat. The room itself was very large and roomy and close to the elevators. We ordered from the restaurant and brought food up and it was pretty... More

In short. Staff, breakfast, room, location. All perfect. Can't think of one negative thing! If you want a view overlooking the castle, email once you've booked to request. The double glazing is so good you hardly hear the traffic on what is a busy street.

Had such a great stay here, everyone was friendly and so helpful. Really central, perfect location. Don't have anything negative to say 😊 we even asked for our pillows to be changed for flumpy ones and they went out to buy some to suit our needs. Breakfast was amazing, all fresh and even cooked to order if requested. Love it... More

Hotel in the center of the city. Excellent breakfast and especially the quality of the bacon. In a double room they provide only one face towel! Why/ At three o clock in the afternoon the room was not clean by the personnel of the hotel.

If you are after a central place to stay in Edinburgh then this is the place. 15/20mins on tram from the airport. 15min walk from the castle and the Royal mile. Comfy beds as you would expect from a premier inn. Overall a lovely easy stay.

Came up to reception to inquire about room prices for later on in the year for my family and I. I was greeted by a gentleman called Chris, who was smiling and happy. He was friendly and warm, and not at all myopic like the staff at some of the other hotels I've stayed in. I left feeling informed about... More

Excellent position for all the wonderful attractions this magnificent city provides. We stayed in other hotels whilst in Scotland, whilst their facilities may have exceeded Premier, non could touch it for true value. Excellent attitude of staff across the board. The breakfasts were excellent & the evening meal was exceptional value.

Stayed here recently for 3 nights. Hotel is in a very good location, near to all the sites and amenities. I asked for a room at the front with a view of the castle, was told that these rooms can be noisy as the hotel is on a main road. Said I didn't want a noisy room so they gave... More

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighborhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As its name suggests, Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Central (Princes Street) is situated on one of the most famous streets in Scotland, if not the world. All the delights of Princes Street are literally on your doorstep, while all the heritage and landmarks of Edinburgh are just a few minutes away. Stroll along pedestrianised Princes St to enjoy top name brands on one side, and one top notch view of the park on the other. Walk the Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh Castle, a destination steeped in history. Step out in style if you're coming to enjoy Hogmanay or the Edinburgh Festival. Then turn your feet homeward and come back to great food at our restaurant and a lovely comfy bed. ... more   less
