My cousin and I stayed here in early December 2016. Was very nice, staff were polite, the room had two double beds and they were very comfy. Location was perfect for us. Would definitely stay here again if I were to come back :)

We were there at the end of and beginning of May for a weekend break. The hotel was easy to find after the pleasant trip from the airport on the Shuttle. The room was comfortable with nice beds and television. There were plenty of good pubs and restaurants in walking distance and also the tour buses were near. The Castle...

Frederick Hotel is a 5 minute taxi ride away from Waverley station.It is a block away from Princess street, one of the main thoroughfares in Edinburgh. The staff at reception were polite and helpful and gave us a lot of tips on places to see as it was our first visit. The breakfast was at a cafe across the road,...

Gloomy, sad, untidy place with faceless staff in the very center of beautiful Edinburgh. Four stars must be joke. In my country they would desperatly fight for three stars. No safe in the room, room frige empty, short bed, sticky furniture... We have visited almost all big cities in Europe, but this was unique experience. And all of this for...

The hotel itself was fine- central with a clean room and good sized beds for all of us. However they have an arrangement where hotel guests have breakfast in Café Rouge across the road - this was a disaster. It was a busy rugby weekend so the hotel was busy - but this should have meant that Café Rouge knew...

We stayed here for three nights in April 2017. Right when we arrived we were surprised with a room upgrade to a family room. It had a double bed and a single bed inside. We had plenty of space and it was very clean. The breakfast at Rick's across the street was great and I even got to try Haggis!...

Booked this hotel at the last moment for 3 nights and have no regrets. It was only a 10 minute walk from Waverly Station and a good central location to Princes Street and George Street. The staff were very helpful and made sure our stay was enjoyable. The only minor drawback was having our breakfast across the road as the...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
