Arrived at 8pm after long day at work to find no available parking and only about 10 spaces dedicated to hotel anyway so parked on the street a good 500 metres away from the hotel. On arrival there is a very poor quality "all you can eat" buffet as the only option for food available in the restaurant and everyone...

The room was ample, clean with everything you need. Iron, extra pillows, hair dryer, tv. Enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is good and location is within walking distance to the town. 10 mins from Edinburgh castle and the zoo !

This hotel is budget and I would easily live here again, because its cheap and it has everything that is needed for a short city break. The only problem is that our wing was an extension to the original building so it is a budget within budget. Room smelled, I think it used to be a smoking room before, the...

First of all this hotel does not diserve 3 stars or even 1 ! The service is really bad, the bed sheets are dirty, the night staff is useless, the wifi is not a really good one. The location of this hôtel is quite good but honestly if you have another choice you should book somewhere else.

Stayed here for three nights and I couldn't fault it. It served it's purpose for the cheap price I paid. Friendly staff, clean and tidy. Good bar area to relax with a pint. There is parking, but it costs £5 for 24 hours, which isn't bad for a city centre. It's only a 10 minute walk to the centre. Would...

I booked a single room for 2 nights for almost a hostel price. It was a double comfortable bed with private bathroom, TV and all facilities. When I arrived they were serving all you can eat dinner for £10 and I got that. Good food and nice service as well. The negative point was in the next morning when I...

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.
