This hotel is in a great area of the city, quite central. Minutes away from plenty of shopping and restaurants. Not too far from tourist attractions. Took the Airlink 100 bus and got off at the stop just before Waverley, which is only a few minutes walk to the hotel. We arrived early, and they were able to store our... More

Apart from its excellent central location, this hotel has great, helpful friendly staff. Our room was at the front and overlooked the gardens and the Mound - we had a great view of the firework display one night! The room was spacious and the bed was (as with all Premier beds) super-comfortable. (Having tried their beds a few times, we... More

We really enjoyed our short stay here. The rooms were very nice and the staff very helpful. We were able to store our luggage even after we checked out so we could take a day tour before we left the city. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. We were able to get there from the airport using the... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights during the Fringe Festival in August. Check-in was fast, and Chris at the front desk very kindly changed our room from a disabled room (which the website said was the only one available), to a much nicer one with a castle view. This made all of the difference! Prices were quite high... More

We have just returned Sunday from the premier inn on princess st. This visit was booked for my husband as a surprise for his 60th birthday. When I booked this in January I spoke to a lovely young man at the hotel called Chris, after explaining what I was looking for I asked for a castle view room of which... More

Excellent city centre hotel, 10 mins walk from waverley station Facilities to leave luggage, delicious breakfast, pricey due to time of year but clean and comfortable. Close to shops, cafes, bars and bus stops to access other areas of the city. Free wifi but not particularly good, can pay for extra but didnt bother as most bars offer free wifi... More

We loved staying here. Good location right on Princes Street but still managed a good nights sleep with a quiet and comfortable room. A request for an iron was speedily managed and unlike Front of House were pleasant although the restaurant is busy so do book for Dinner and get up early for breakfast if you are on a timetable....

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
