Next to train station and links (bus/tram) to airport, and only short walk to city centre. Had lovely meal in restaurant, staff were very helpful and room was very comfortable with everything you could possibly need.

Hotel close to Haymarket train station, within walking distance to Princes Street. Staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast was very nice, though I did need to wait a while for the porridge I ordered. Room service was very quick, but quite expensive for what it was. This is a nice hotel, and would be my preferred place to stay while...

The hotel is looking tired and grubby and could do with a complete revamp. Didn't eat there as there is a large number of good eateries within walking distance. Rooms could have been cleaner. Staff friendly and helpful but disappointed that our room wasn't cleaned one day as we were not a priority apparently!

The reception area was very strange - looked temporary, although the two receptionists were lovely. Room very compact, double glazing on only one of the three windows did nothing to reduce outside noise. Bed was like a water bed, very uncomfortable! Shower screen in bathroom leaked, leading to a very wet floor. £10 voucher as booked with hotel directly so...

Dear Caroline, I am sorry for the apparent problems you experienced during your stay. We do try to strike the balance of firmness of mattress to as it is a personal thing. All the rooms in the hotel have the same type of window windows and all are double glazed. There are a couple of rooms that have secondary glazing...

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.
