We paid extra for an early check-in (from 12.00 noon) and extra for a window room with view of the castle. Our double room was on the small side, but that's what they advertise so not entirely unexpected. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding extremely good quality, there was space hollowed out underneath the bed to store our... More

The hotel was rather poor. The room we had 2.10 is a shoe box, smaller than a inside cabin on a cruise ship. No natural air or light, a fab was provided... Really? I would not recommend this to anyone, for the price you'd be better getting a tent and staying on the grass across the road! At least if... More

The Easy Hotel is right on Princes Street, so could not be more central. Our room had a brilliant view of the castle, but had its downsides. The noise. The stairs. The buses and trams go on all night and the people seem to get loud about 3am that’s when they woke me, but only for a short while. Additionally,... More

Not giving this place four stars on the basis of the quality of accommodation as let's face it, it's a smaller scabier version of a travel lodge.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood 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.
