Beautiful dining room with views of Edinburgh's Old Town and the Castle. Food was superb, I had the Twenty burger and my partner had the Mac & Cheese with lobster tails. Although the restaurant was fairly busy, service was quick and our Spanish waitress Miriam was delightful and very friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

I stay in IHG hotels in Edinburgh quite often but this is the first time in this 'new' hotel. Location goes without saying - opposite station entrance and very central. Car parking is a short walk away but that's normal for any city centre hotel. The welcome at the desk was excellent! The room I was given was very good...

The hotel has only been under the Indigo brand for 4 weeks so still early days. It's in a great location but no car park within a decent walk. The exec room is on the small side but beautifully appointed and the size in to be expected in this location. My only concern is the number of staff and the...

Stayed over the Hogmanay weekend with my wife and had a great time. The hotel is lovely and in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The food was great. Would stay again.

This hotel is ideally located with most of Edinburgh just a short walk away. We really enjoyed our stay in a spacious room at the front with great views. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Sarah, the manager, was very helpful!

This hotel has only been open a few weeks and it is perfectly placed on Princes Street literally on the opposite side of Waverley train station exit. We stayed for a few days over Hogmanay and could not fault it. It was right on the street party. It is a quirky hotel similar to other Indigo's across the country and...

We booked this hotel last August and we went just for one night and wish we stayed for two nights. We had a perfect view and it expensive but worth it. Everything just in place and the room is very nice.

Brilliant location for Hogmanay! Room 206 was a very boxes room - no view but very quiet which meant we could have a long sleep without being disturbed. The bar was good fun on New Year's Eve - we popped in and out from the street party all evening and the team were super welcoming. The bar has a huge...

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.
