Couldn't ask for a better location right in the middle of Princess St and only a stones throw from the train station. Breakfast is all freshly cooked to order, a wide selection to choose from and can't be faulted. Staff were so helpful and knowledgeable on anything that was asked. We had room 1 which is at the back so...

Booked using a website, the price was very reasonable for the location - on Princes Street and looking out towards the Castle. The entrance was unprepossessing and not attractive, between two shops. The room was at the top of the building, on the 5th floor. The lift only went to the 4th floor. There was a sloping roof in the...

Me and my Mam stayed here for 2 nights after purchasing a deal on Living Social. On arrival we found the staff welcoming and we had booked our inclusive Afternoon Tea which we had in the bar area. We were amazed at the size of the Afternoon Tea and staff were very accommodating with our dietary requirements and letting me...

The location is the best Edinburgh offers. I would place the hotel between average and very good. Staff are excellent and the breakfast is superb. However, the rooms,although clean and relatively comfortable, are in need of some upgrading. If you are using a voucher deal it's good value as its so convenient for all attractions and amenities.

First of all the location is excellent, especially if you come by train, just wish i'd know how good it was before we walked from the station. It's not a long walk however there are both bus and tram stops right outside so we could have saved ourselves a 10 minute walk but the weather was good so hardly a...

We had a nice room with a view to the castle. Lovely bed with fresh, crisp linen, great bathroom with plenty towels, well stocked tea tray, with water and shortbread....

I stayed here under a deal on woucher and it was fabulous value. The hotel is old, (but that's obvious) so its not a surprise, and yes, it is a little tired in places. But our room was immaculate, we had a room at the front with the most spectacular view of the castle and gardens. Our room was warm...

We paid for one of the suites at the front with a castle view. £127 per night with breakfast, as advertised with toiletries and hairdryer and the use of an iron. We arrived earlier than the time so we just left our bags and came back later to wash and then go back out. We did not have any toiletries...

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.
