Had such a lovely stay at the Chesterfield. Gorgeous and well appointed apartment. Large, comfortable lounge - it almost seemed a shame to be going out all day! Wandered into nearby Stockbridge and was great to explore a new area after so many visits to Edinburgh. All the staff were friendly and helpful. My husband had prearranged a birthday cake... More

Location was superb for Edinburgh Festival, our apartment was luxurious and spacious. Our room was tidied to a very high standard. All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious! There was one awkward moment, when we overheard two housekeepers talking about how one of their, I imagine superiors, who has been not working very well and something about tips.... More

Great place to stay in Edinburgh. Clean, welcoming, comfortable. Two minor complaints, the kitchen isn't the best equipped if you're looking to do several days of self catering (we weren't so we got around the minor issues) and the shower in our 2 bed apartment clearly isn't up to the job and the staff know about this. When we mentioned... More

Sometimes it's nice just to have some space to relax on a long trip and this was it! Very spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was modern and two flat screens added a nice touch to wind down for the evening. Hotel staff is accommodating and very helpful. TIP: Book the parking early if you have a car. They...

Lovely individual apartments with high end bathroom, bedroom, living room & kitchen appointments. At nearly $500 per night (Fringe/Festival month) in Edinburgh - one cannot be on a budget. Staff were fabulous & welcoming. We felt the drawbacks were 1) rock hard uncomfortable bed & sofa 2) # 7A was 3 flights of steps up. We came home exhausted from... More

Traveling to Edinburgh on holiday with 3 kids. Lovely high quality 2 bedroom apartment, walking distance from everything. Lots of good restaurants and cafes nearby too. We stayed in 6 places in 3 weeks. This was probably the best.

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.
