Although the price of the hotel is slightly above average, there is great value for money in terms of location. So if you are in Edinburgh for a limited time, I would highly recommend this hotel, which is situated in the centre of Princess Street in "New town". Having a direct room-view to Edinburgh Castle, we also enjoyed the beautiful... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July. Our roomwas on the 5th floor but the only problem was the lift only goes to the 4th but we weren't advised of that!! The room faced away from Prince's Street which suited us as it was lovely and quiet. As the weather was reasonably warm... More

I recently stayed one night at the Royal Over-Seas League and I had a very pleasant experience. The hotel is on Princes Street in a location that seemed to be close to so many things! My room was on the fifth floor. The lift/elevator went to the fourth floor. The woman at the reception desk asked if I wanted help... More

The hotel is in an old building, but very centrally located and just a stone throw from the Princess Street tram stop. Had a wonderful view of the castle. However, the place is in need of renovation and the bed was very worn. Got assured though that they are about to change the mattresses and also saw some renovation going... More

Visited for one night to see the military tattoo. This hotel needs a massive investment in people and money. We had a suite that cost £270 for one nights bed and breakfast for two people . The bar closed at 22 00 hours on a Saturday night so if you wanted a drink your only option was to go out.... More

For sure this wellplaced hotel is in great need of becoming an up-todate hôtel. My bed was a hard madress and to reach the level of my husbands boxmadress 4 pièces of tree were put under each leg to make it seem higher. Still they did not make it! IF YOU DONT LIKE EGGS for breakfast and prefer other than... More

Having stayed here a couple of years ago and given it a good review I have to say there were things that disappointed this time. Firstly I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the rooms at the top. When given our keys it was explained that the lift did not go to the top floor - not ideal... More

Hard to rate this and possibly unfair to even try to rate it as we stayed just one hour! We were given a dreadful room, complete with a view of a concrete wall and pipes almost within touching distance, loud generators outside and possibly a pigeon resting place. A horrid claustrophobic room that I knew immediately I could not stay... More

nice Staff and delicious breakfast. our room was small, but it was OK. We missed a wardrobe or hooks to hang out jackets. the mattress was very soft and probably defective. We had a room with a view on the castle. Nice, but also loud because of the shop-deliveries at the Princes Street early in the early mornings. The breakfast... More

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.
