A family trip for the Calcutta Cup rugby was made superb by a stay here. Perfectly placed for rugby fans, shoppers and sightseers, it was very comfortable and welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised by the amenities, including a friendly bar and reasonably-priced restaurant, which we used for breakfasts and dinners. Edinburgh was heaving with rugby fans all through a cold,...

We spent one night at the Premier Inn, Edinburgh. Whilst the location is great, our room was disappointing. We couldn't open any windows, which perhaps explains the unpleasant lingering smell. In addition the noise of what sounded like an extractor fan, going on and off, didn't make for a good night's sleep. The chewing gum on one of the towels...

I would highly recommend this site it's in the centre of Edinburgh. Accessible to transport. The only thing that I've notice is the noise from the hall way, you can hear other people when they talk. In spite of slight problem, I still recommend Premier Inn.

This is overall a nice hotel, good location, clean, friendly staff, and good value of money. The breakfast was good but no much variety. I would recommend this for anyone, however there are no much facilities.

All other premier inn' s need to learn from this one. Unbelievable customer service. The staff could not do enough for you especially Gary, Corrina and Lewis. We have been to many premier inn's and even though they have all been good I can't fault the service provided from this one, the best we have ever been to. Please go...

We were really happy with this premier inn. The room was basic but clean and services to high standard. It is within walking distance to shops, station, castle (though uphill!) art gallery, museum of Scotland lovely restaurants and other places of interest. Highly recommend getting an 11 or 22 bus from outside to the ocean quay to visit royal yacht...

Perm inns are pretty much the same up and down the country but I have to single out this one for the staff alone. Very accommodating and friendly from beginning to end. Prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent.

We were travelling with a family of four plus our parents so we had booked two double rooms. We were given 2 large double family rooms with our own third door to keep our two joining rooms open with privacy.

Perfect city centre location for your city break. Waverley/Haymarket train stations are both within walking distance. Reasonably-priced, clean comfortable and friendly - all you would expect from a Premier Inn. There are some rooms which have a Castle view and if this is important to you, ensure you ask for this when booking as these go fast as you would...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As its name suggests, Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Central (Princes Street) is situated on one of the most famous streets in Scotland, if not the world. 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. Walk the Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh Castle, a destination steeped in history. Step out in style if you're coming to enjoy Hogmanay or the Edinburgh Festival. Then turn your feet homeward and come back to great food at our restaurant and a lovely comfy bed. ... more   less
