“poor air con!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Fantastic location at a reasonable price but the air con was far to noisy for what is supposed to be a new hotel. Virtually no sleep at all which was disappointing. Refund was offered but its not what we wanted.We had big plans for the weekend for which we needed our energy but instead we spent our day tired and grumpy. Did not see many staff around but the staff we did see seemed pleasant enough. Otherwise a reasonable hotel. Invest is some decent air con units!

Perfect location in Centre of Princes St Edinburgh.

Bedrooms very comfortable and a good size.
Breakfast was great, especially the view of the castle from the dinning room.
Staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful.

Very impressed as this was my first trip to Edinburgh. Will be back !

Room Tip: Book early

Stayed here for one night for my husbands 50th. Requested a castle view and got one, room 615. Very quiet at night. Lovely helpful staff and excellent customer service. Breakfast great and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to others

You know what you will get with a Premier Inn. Comfortable rooms and pretty standard amenities. This is a new hotel facing the castle on Princes Street. Excellent location for Edinburgh's fab public transport system being a ten minute walk from Waverley station and handy for local buses.

The staff were excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a room on the second floor at the back which had a little noise from the bins being emptied each morning and the air con was also a little noisy tho could be turned off. The Saturday night was an interesting experience due to a large hen party though this seemed to be the norm for Edinburgh weekends. Sunday and Monday were much quieter.

Breakfast was pretty good and felt decent value for money. The views from the restaurant over Princes Street and the Castle were brilliant.

My O2 phone reception was patchy and the free wifi was a bit hit and miss in our 2nd floor room. I would stay here again but would request a castle view room on a higher floor. Good value stay, great service and very handy for all Edinburgh's sights.

It's a Premier Inn and so you know it's clean, tidy, friendly and with all the basics covered. Great sleep in a comfortable bed; large bath and a good shower. Bright and modern.

There's no car park for this hotel because it's right in the City Centre. Out of the door and you look right at the Castle.

My room had no view and the window didn't open but that didn't matter.

The only problem was that I couldn't find it at first - even though I had the correct address. The hotel is behind and above the main shops on Princes Street so the entrance looks like a private entrance to an office block or the staff entrance to the adjacent shops. It's really easy to miss. The nearby bus shelter has a sign pointing to the entrance.

Best location for the attractions but not if you have a car.
