We travelled to Edinburgh in order to attend the Rugby at Murrayfield and booked the room to stay overnight. We were aware there was no breakfast facility and that some rooms were not en suite. We had an e mail in the days leading to our stay asking our likely arrival time, this was to be earlier than the 2pm... More

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from Princess Street yet the area is nice and quiet, especially at night time. We were welcomed by the manager Lukasz, who can provide you with information on where to eat or places to visit. Our room was in the basement, which has its own access. The room is basic but clean...

Good points were the handy location and bed was clean and comfortable. Bad points were the private bathrooms were a walk down a public area, the fact that we got no hot water cos they had switched it off, the amount of stuff on every surface- ornaments, lamps, cushions, photos etc etc and lack of heating. It's a bed and... More

This was a really lovely place to stay, clean, comfortable, friendly, lovely décor, with the possibility of relaxing in a beautiful sitting room, very helpful staff and close to the town centre. We were also allowed to leave our luggage as our departure was not until the early evening.

I visited here with my Dad a few days ago for the Military Tattoo. It was his first flight so I wanted it to be as perfect as possible. I always worry about hotels, especially when you find them to be a lot cheaper than hotels in the vicinity so I was a bit wary about what we would find.... More

I stayed with my mum this weekend, we had a beautiful room, very clean and comfortable. Hotel was nicely decorated, and very welcoming. Lovely location, a nice 15-20 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and the town, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. Lukas was very polite and helpful-thank you! Not necessarily a negative as there was... More

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.
