Stayed for 2 nights with mum and daughter. All areas spotlessly clean, however, we had a deluxe room which wasn't that spacious and in need of some diy, handle missing from window and marks on wall covered with paint that didn't match. Minor details but let the room down. We ordered room service on the Saturday night as we'd had...

Having stayed in multiple Hilton's worldwide, this is by far one of my favourites and in my Top 10 globally.

Spent 2 nights here whilst attending a conference. As you can see the view from my room was exceptional. The bartender was excellent and very knowledgeable without being overbearing. Room was pleasant and breakfast staff were also very pleasant and courteous. Great location and will definitely return in the new year.

First class hotel with first class staff. Location is superb especially if you like the Old Town. Ample car parking available.Everyone to their own but we are a well travelled fit and able couple in our early 60s and we found nothing not to like about this hotel and its location. Will definately stay again.

The location initially seems off the beaten track- but a quick left and right and your in the thick of it. Breakfast is good and easy and the room are spacious and clean by a bit dark. Staff are friendly and the warm cookie on arrival is a nice touch.

Lovely hotel with lovely rooms. Great breakfast and service. We would definitely stay here again. The little one enjoyed her stay. Great location, which made it easy to just walk to the city center to go to the Christmas markets and shopping.

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.
