Recently acquired (October 2016) by Leonardo from Premier Inn. Using the room keycard at the lift initially proved difficult until I asked for help at reception. I had asked for a room away from the roads and the construction site opposite which was partially fulfilled however the room was quiet despite overlooking Morrison Street. I was pleasantly surprised by the...

The hotel was good, very kind staff, easy access to public transport, 25 min of walk until the base of the castle. But we had one inconvenient, we booked a non smoking room and our room was impregnated cigarette smel, we just did not change because we were exhausted from the ride and fell asleep.

Basic hotel, but that's not to be disparaging. Fantastic prices and really good location right next to Haymarket station and a quick walk into the city centre. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were always excellent. Would certainly stay here again. Slight niggle was that I couldn't get my laptop to connect to the WiFi, but...

As mentioned by others, this hotel is about to be renovated. I think it is ready for an update but I did find the room was clean and quiet. I went to the Prete organic coffee place a lot as it was nearby. Everything is within walking distance and I really enjoyed exploring the city which can be done as...

Hotel is near to Haymarket train station and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Room facilities were good. Some of the corridors and staircases looked tired but I understand that the hotel has since closed for renovation. I enjoyed the traditional Scottish breakfast served buffet style.

Reviewed 5 April 2017

Upon walking up, the hotel building and lobby are very updated. Rooms and hallways to rooms, not as much. Very clean still and for the price, the location is wonderful. Edinbrough was much more enjoyable because we didn't have to drop half our savings on a decent room in a somewhat central location.

The location of the hotel is a little far from Old Town. The staff was not very friendly and they were not available to give us recommendations on the city, tours or restaurants. The bedroom was nice, thou the hotel is a little old. Breakfast was wonderful.

Hotel was in a great location, friendly and helpful staff but the dinks at the bar very expensive and only disappointment was that booked a double room for us both but got two single beds pushed together, not at all comfortable and spoiled a good nights sleep.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
