Budget hotel. Decent breakfast. But that's about it! No heating! Had to endure a really chilly night! And nobody at reception to address this as after 10PM there's no staff!! Staff very friendly over phone. But they need more staff to cover nights..

Staff were quite polite and helpful, especially the lady on night shift. Lovely dining with computer (though very old) to use; the computer saved my day when my laptop disappointed! Good fruits all day long, clean environment and maps to guide you around. The bed and doors were queaky though, and need to be changed.

I stayed at the St.Valery en route home from Holland and was very impressed. The owner was very accommodating with arranging a late check-in. The room was a wee bit small but this was no problem as we were just staying one night. The room facilities (nice teas, toiletries, dressing table with special lights, safe, mini bar etc) were good... More

With only one night in Edinburgh, The St Valery guests house was the ideal place. Great location near Haymarket tram/bus stop. The staff were very helpful, upgrading is to a larger room. Comfy bed, warm room, ensuite was tight but adequate. Breakfast was fantastic and huge so be sure to take your appetite with you.

Very helpful staff, excellent breakfast, the small bedroom is comfortable enough for a few night stay. A good walk from the center but bus stops are close and also Haymarket station where trains and buses from Glasgow stop. We reserved a small bedroom which is not big indeed, but it's OK. However the bathroom could be a little bit bigger.... More

A guest house with standards higher than many 4* hotels we've stayed in on city breaks. The friendly, welcoming service couldn't have been better. We had a spacious room with comfortable twin beds,a kettle with a selection of teas and coffees, a large flat screen TV, and a strong, free WiFi signal. A small bathroom, but with a powerful, easy...

Excellent location! Everything can be done by foot! Unbeatable price! Magnificent rooms! Friendly staff and owner! Special attention for my boyfriend's 40th (wine, flowers and swiss chocolates in the room for us) Will come back here next time and recommand this place to all my family and friends for sure!

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.
