I stayed here on business for a couple of nights. My first issue was finding the place! Google maps doesn't seem to know how to find it. But I eventually found the small doorway on Princes Street between New Look and Starbucks. It's a nice hotel with great views of Edinburgh castle. A bit of a strange lay out I.e...

The hotel is in a great location, looking right across a park at the castle. Lots of shopping right on the door step. The staff are so friendly and helpful and could not have made us feel more welcome. The breakfast buffet was so tasty. And the rooms were spotless. Great value for money. I have stayed here before and...

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.

All the delights of Princes Street are literally on your doorstep, while all the heritage and landmarks of Edinburgh are just a few minutes away. Stroll along pedestrianised Princes St to enjoy top name brands on one side, and one top notch view of the park on the other.
