Just returned from weekend in Edinburgh and stayed at Braveheart. Have had a lovely weekend, although tiring. The hotel is close to city centre and was very clean, comfy bed and good breakfast. The proprietor was very helpful and staff friendly . Would recommend for a very reasonable price.

Friendly staff who were always ready to help. The breakfast was very good. Parking is a bit of an issue but that's the case for most places in the city. The beds themselves weren't were comfortable and were very narrow.

A good location on bus routes. The staff were helpful with maps, directions etc. I stayed for two nights and had a good breakfast both mornings. I got what I paid for. It was a good base for me to explore Edinburgh during the festival. I would stay there again.

We stayed in a room for 5 on the first floor. One of the beds was broken and squeaked every time my son turned in bed. Bathroom was smelly and very small, added later into the room. The general look of the hotel was not good. Beds and the room were clean(ish) but very worn and old. The breakfast was... More

We went there as we were looking for an accomodation in Edinburgh city with breakfast and parking close to the old town. We didn't expect something amazing for the price we paid. However, we've been informed (after booking) that parking was not available anymore. (There are only 2 spots and way more rooms!!!) The alternative was a nearby private parking... 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.
