I spend a lot of my life in hotels and will certainly not be staying at the Bonham again. No real problem with my basement room (other than the beastly smell in the corridor outside which was successfully disguised when I complained but not eliminated!). My beef is with staffing levels and training. When I returned to the hotel at...

Only one night at our favourite hotel in the world ,in our favourite city in the world, but a delightful break in a v stressful period for our family with our little Edinburgh grandson awaiting a stem cell transplant: batteries recharged to face next stage!

We stayed here with our Rick Steves tour last month and tacked on extra days here at the beginning and the end of our trip as well. The location was good: in a quiet neighborhood still convenient to the main sights. We upgraded our room to a junior suite (I think that's what it was called) as there were 3...

Spent almost a week there recently; while I would have preferred something closer to the old city, it is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk with some nice restaurants along the way. The hotel makes up for this distance; we had a lovely, spacious room with a beautiful view; the service is impeccable and super friendly and the breakfasts each morning...

We stayed 2 nights and found the service friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable with a super bathroom. I was initially concerned that it wasn't central but it's an easy 5 minute walk into the centre of the city. The breakfast was great. We didn't have dinner so can't comment on the restaurant. The only negative thing about...

We had an Itison voucher for a chateaubriand and bottle of wine between 2. It would be hard to find fault with this, both for value and quality. Given that Edinburgh was in full Festival frenzy, the restaurant at the Bonham was a haven of peace and excellent service. The steak was superb and the wine better than average. We've...

Great historic town house in EDI, fully modernise, with huge rooms and good restaurant. Have been using the Bonham for a few months, when available. It has become my preferred hotel for EDI business trip. Quiet, comfortable, very spacious. Can't go wrong.

Not my regular hotel in Edinburgh where I stay a lot as its a fair hike into the city. The hotel is a mix of new and old rooms in a converted building on the Leith basin. The staff were exceptionally helpful in accommodating me in swapping rooms (ask for one on the estuary side if you are a light...

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.
