So impressed with the staff and service that was provided. Can not fault our stay at all. Each staff member we saw deserve recognition for being so great, they really made our stay and we will be recommending to others

We have just returned from a weekend stay with 2 families of 5. Our 6 kids range from 10-4 so it can be quite hard work when away on a city break but ALL the staff in this hotel worked so hard to make our stay enjoyable. They pushed tables together, colouring for the kids, really patient with us when...

I would highly recommend this hotel. It is very clean, has great service and really helpful staff. The location is very central being easy to walk around the City, visit the local sites, and commute to the train station and airport very easily. The highlight of the visit for me was staying on the 6th floor with the most amazing...

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Premier Inn on Princes Street. Very comfortable accommodation in a superb location opposite Edinburgh Castle. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were very good - we especially enjoyed sitting at a window with a view of the castle. WiFi was also good. Can certainly recommend.

Our room was very cosy and I liked how you could change the temperature to anything you liked. You are well respected there and the food was delicious. Good choices of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like it how you can go back for as much food and drink as you like at breakfastq. Croissants and pancakes are...

Stayed in lots of premier inns and usually love them but this is by far the worst one I have come across. Would rate 0 out of 5 if I could. Room is absolutely tiny, stinks of mould / damp, window looking out to nothing but a concrete wall and the bed is not comfy either which is unusual for...

What can I say, we booked this hotel as it's across the road from the castle, as we normally get a view of the car park we contacted the hotel and asked for room with a view of the castle. They said they would try but couldn't promise. When we arrived the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful as indeed...

Absolutely amazing location in the heart or Edinburgh. We stayed there for 4 night's for our honeymoon and were given a room at the top of the hotel with a postcard view of the castle. We were also given a hamper full of chocolate, fruit and lush goodies! We had a brilliant stay, great staff and would definitely recommend it!

We are frequent visitors to Edinburgh and usually stay in hotels in the Grass market. I was a bit apprehensive as I like "nice" hotels but I was amazed at how good this place was.

Premier inn didn't disappoint again! Excellent location on princes street, sandwiched between shops, with an unusual entrance, up a lift to floor 2. Great bar and restaurant with a lovely view of the castle, comfy chairs. Impressed with our evening meal, steak and chips, tasty, hot, well cooked, well presented and with great waiting staff, polite, chatty and attentive. Check...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As its name suggests, Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Central (Princes Street) is situated on one of the most famous streets in Scotland, if not the world. 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. Walk the Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh Castle, a destination steeped in history. Step out in style if you're coming to enjoy Hogmanay or the Edinburgh Festival. Then turn your feet homeward and come back to great food at our restaurant and a lovely comfy bed. ... more   less
