Had a very good stay at The Rutland Hotel in a two bed apartment. The decor is quite quirky and the room was on the second floor but well appointed, quiet and v comfortable. The shower was great. Service was charming and very helpful. All in all an excellent place in a great location. Recommended.

We stayed here for two nights just before Christmas. The hotel is next door to the Caledonian Hotel ideally positioned at the west end of Princes Street. It has a rather anonymous entrance in the adjoining high street and this low key feel is carried on in the reception area but you should not be put off by this. The...

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.
