Neighborhood
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.

It's actually now called "Angel's share". It's a cute boutique hotel. Expect the rooms to be small (I think this may be a regional thing since other two hotels I stayed in at Edinburgh were both very small). If you want to be near all the attractions without footing the bill for Balmoral, it's perfect! I'm glad I stayed here. The restaurant in the hotel is pretty decent as well. I recommend their Scottish Breakfast!

Dear Christie, Thank you for your review. Our location is as you say ' perfect' wih everything you could wish for on your doorstep. Our standard rooms are compact and offer all of the amenities of our other room types such as fluffy bath robes, mini bar, complimenatry toiletries, ipod docks and tea trays which make them a perfect base. We do also offer Superior and Deluxe rooms that offer super king size beds and a little more space. The Scottish breakfast is of huge demand - even the haggis has been well recieved! Thank you once again for your review - we hope to welcome you back to the Angels Share on any return visits you may have planned. Do not hesitate to call us for any availability queries you may have.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at angel share. I booked the hotel a couple of months ago when it didn't even have a listing on trip advisor so was totally unsure of what to expect esp since it appears to have only recently opened. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The bar is stunning. Very modern, well stocked and classy with beautiful chandeliers; when we arrived on the Sunday afternoon there was a pianist playing, and we ended up staying the whole afternoon chilling out and having a few cocktails. The place is a bit of a tardis but everywhere is clearly signposted. I totally loved the idea of each room being named after a Scottish celebrity and it did remind me of other boutique hotels I've stayed in in Edinburgh. Although compact the room was

Dear Heather, What a lovely review! Thank you! We sell the Angels Share as a ' destination venue' and from your review I can see that you certainly enjoyed your stay - visiting the bar and touring the devils cut :) We really do strive to go over and above to ensure people have the very best experience possible. It is so lovely when someone takes the time to share this. We believe that the staff make the venue what it is and we invest a lot of time into training each and every member to make this possible. The tunnox tea cakes and jogging maps are little touches that we feel are important to make us that little bit quirky - Im so glad you enjoyed them. I shall make sure all the staff get to read your review! Our pianist plays every weekend and sets a lovley ambience in the bar for locals and residents alike. We do hope to welcome you back to the Angels Share Hotel again. Please call us to ensure the best possible rate. A huge warm thank you!

We had a Itison voucher and stayed for 2 nights. First impressions are nice, welcoming, helpful and friendly staff and a great location right at the bottom of Princess Street. We stayed in the Gavin & Scott room. Nice sized room with a comfy bed. Wardrobes could be better, didn't like the hanging rail facing forward as it made hanging clothes quite tricky. (Minor gripe!!) However, our room overlooked a side street, quiet you would think?. Think again.... Both mornings (fri/sat) we were woken up at silly hours, be it glass bins being emptied, road works, workman working on the next door building. It was a total nightmare for us. At 5.20am I gave in and called reception to ask if there was another room we could move to as this was our second night without sleep, but were

Thank you for your review. I am dissapointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately Edinburgh is surrounded by building works at the moment and due to our fantastic central location we will always be subject to a small amount of city noise. Building works do not commence until 7am during the week and rarely ever at weekends. There should be no works taking place during the hours of 17:00 and 07:00 however late night / early morning bin pick ups are something that we can not avoid being in the city centre. We do not offer air con in the hotel. Being based in Scotland with we do not feel that air con is a neccessity for the hotel and we do not advertise to have this facility. We have invested in tower fans that can be used upon request. Your comments are very valid to us and I thank you once again for your review.

102 - Sean Connery room, very nice and spacious, nice touches like hand weights, decent hairdryer, good size mugs (but not the best range of teas and coffee). Room overlooks road and is immediately outside the lift (noisey). Bathroom is great size but the bath was tiny - 5ft 5 and I was more comfy with feet on the sides! Shower is fab very powerful but drowns the bathroom as the shower shield is too small. Damp damaging the floor and strange dirty fitting in bathroom (pictures) also the electrical cover on plugs under the table is loose. More attention to detail needed but overall a great idea, good location and bar staff downstairs are great (special mention for Brooke who works in the bar and is a delight). Reception is upstairs but well sign posted if a little messy with

Thank you for your review. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the touches that we feel are so important and that seperate us from the usual chain hotels. Our location as as you say is - great - however being so central we will always be subject to a little noise from the vibrant bustling city that Edinburgh is! Double glazing has been installed along with lovely heavy curtains to keep the room nice and dark. Thank you for bringing the electrical socket issue to our attention this was passed straight to maintenance on recieveing your review. Brooke has also been applauded for her great efforts! Thank you once again for your review. We appreciate all feedback and I can assure you that all comments have been acted upon.
