Stayed at West End Hotel for a weekend with a large group, had a good time. The hostel is nice and clean, and everything was in good condition. There's phone lockers in the room with sockets that are handy, and the beds were allright. Friendly staff Only three showers for the whole floor, which is not enough. Breakfast was okay.

The beds are so hard it's impossible to sleep, it's so noisy with doors constantly banging, day and night. The acoustics are terrible, all hard surfaces with loads of fire doors clattering shut at all hours, this is the worst hotel I've stayed at ever, and not the cheapest. I complained to the bar staff (at 1am) that the music...

Hi Matt, Thank you for providing feedback on your stay at The West End Hotel Edinburgh. I am sorry your stay was not as enjoyable as you expected on this occasion. We do provide live music at weekends which always finishes at 11:30pm and we ensure is is acoustic to avoid noise travelling to hotel rooms. Unfortunately as you stayed...

I stayed in an eight bed dorm and was really pleased with the hotel and the level of service I received. It was clean and modern, and the staff were really friendly to me, particularly Lisa behind the counter. I would definitely come here again when I come back to Edinburgh!

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.
