Me and my mum booked this hotel as we were going to Edinburgh for one night for the fringe. When I saw the room I nearly cried. I was considering just getting the train home and if we had to stay in that room I would have went home. Our room was at the very top of the building, the... More

The young staff are very friendly and helpful, but it's obvious there aren't enough of them and that they are obviously paid peanuts for working their butts off. The hotel itself is very dated and in need of some TLC and a good spring clean. It has an unpleasant musty smelly throughout. Very good tea and coffee facilities in the... More

Stayed here for one night for the Fringe, knew it would be basic given the price but oh me i did not expect how bad. This has to be the worst place i have ever stayed, had it not been the Fringe and accommodation difficult to find i would have left. The place smells as soon as you enter, it... More

The staff were very friendly, but weren't very good at cleaning the rooms. Our room hadn't been hoovered, and the duvet didn't even fit the bed. We hoped the room would be hoovered after our first nights stay, but this was not the case. Someone had been in to make the beds and refill the soaps, but only did half... More

Keeping in mind this is my first accommodation in Scotland and I'm not sure what the comparitive standards are yet, I guess you get what you pay for. This is cheap and clean and about half an hour's walk from the castle. It is also very near the city tram line. It smells a bit funky at first as it... More

Hotel a bit tired but excellent location and clean enough. The price is very good for the middle of Edinburgh many attractions walking distance. Parking a bit of a problem at busy times. Would stay here again.

An old rambling dog friendly hotel that's smells of urine in the public areas and is not very clean. My partner awoke with over 20 flea bites. Not happy ... Oh and the breakfast is really bad. It's directly opposite the Hilton so well located, but it's just not an option. Very disappointing

We stayed here for one night. The building is an amazing building but as other comments desperate for a freshen up. Staff were helpful. Our rooms carpet was very stained and yes room could have been cleaner but bed was fine. Breakfast was not the best continental u could wish for. Cereal toast and pastries available. But pastries are not... More

A long weekend, 4 nights, in Edinburgh, Scotland UK. We stayed at B&B in Grosvernor street, which jokingly is called the Ritz. The place is friendly, with spacy rooms. two staircases with Scottish tartan carpet. Rooms are comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast is better than adequate, however, no yochurt. No cooked breakfast provided. The place is... 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edinburgh Ritz Hotel was originally built as a town house in the 1860s right on the edge of Edinburgh's historic New Town right in the heart of the city. After a spell housing the Scottish Coal Board the building was converted into a boutique Hotel 50 years ago.Every effort has been made to retain the original features, including the beautiful cornices, rose crowns and staircases, whilst simultaneously providing guests with all necessary mod-cons. ... more   less
