The Bonham Hotel, Edinburgh is a boutique hotel in Scotland with a very contemporary spirit. It occupies a series of Victorian buildings in the West End of Edinburgh, whose soaring natural proportions have allowed us to create a truly dynamic set of rooms and public spaces. At The Bonham Hotel, Edinburgh, we have used bold colour, rich texture and contemporary art and photography to build an environment that is fun, upbeat, welcoming and with the unmistakable buzz of being part of a great Scottish city.There are 49 boutique rooms and suites at The Bonham, each individually styled so that, among them, you will almost certainly find the one you have been waiting for.

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.

We spent a very pleasant night in this hotel which is very well situated - about a mile or so from Waverley Station and not too far from the Dean Village neighbourhood. It was a Sunday so the phased refurbishment had no impact on our stay. The room had a very elegant decor,

The rooms are good but the service is lacking, such a missed opportunity. This was one of my favourite hotels in Edinburgh but sadly it is not living up to its reputation of the past. Attention to detail and warmth from the reception staff is what is needed,

Does anyone which rooms are the superior rooms? What is the difference? Thanks
The superior rooms tend to have the best views. We stayed in one with a gorgeous view of Edinburgh. The hotel was absolutely beautiful.

How close is laundry facilities? Do laundries have self - dispensing soap?
We never found a laundry-mat in the area. However, there was a cleaners/laundry about a five minute walk....but, their prices seemed a bit steep for wash, dry and fold. Maybe that was because it was during Festival. I would recommend asking at the hotel. Good luck!
