I stayed there this month - I was aware that the windows in the room did not open when booking however even in a mild March this caused the rooms to be stuffy, windows to be full of condensation and a musty smell on our arrival. The AC worked but only went down to 19c ?? The hotel was quiet,...

Great location, with all attractions within walking distance. Typical premier inn style, clean. We used the tram from the airport £8.50 return with stop nearby, great bar overlooking the castle and star bucks next door. Also very friendly staff.

For location, this one is hard to beat, particularly as Edinburgh is easy to walk around. The room was clean, functional and quiet. The breakfast was good quality and plentiful, so much so that so that we didn't need to get lunch. What will make me really remember this place is the staff. They were super friendly, very helpful and...

Really comfortable hotel that is very conveniently located. Staff were incredibly friendly nothing was too much trouble. Only thing missing in the room was tissues. It was super clean. The security also made you feel very safe at night.

We stayed at this hotel on a recent "girls" trip to Edinburgh. The hotel and staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is great and overall, a perfect place to stay for a long or short stay.

This hotel is in a prime location with views of the castle and gardens. Good value for money, good breakfast and excellent cleanliness. We had a family room which was spacious and clean and because we were high up it was very quiet. I highly recommend this except when I'm ​visiting so i can be guaranteed a room.

My husband and I were returning from holiday and arriving after the last train home. Very tired after our flight this Premier Inn was very easy to get to from the airport bus. Very quickly booked in by a very nice young girl, excellent sleep with no disturbance and finally an excellent breakfast with a beautiful view of the castle....

Chris, the young man who works in this hotel is an absolute asset!! Such a pleasant, friendly, warm young man - who is genuinely interested in his guests! The hotel is around a 15 min walk from Waverley Station.

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.

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.
