Neighbourhood
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.

When we arrived the room had clearly not been cleaned properly as it was dusty and there were stains on the toilet seat of an unsavoury variety. Later on our first night, the toilet flush broke and we were moved to a more dependable room. The second room had also not been

We stayed here for two nights, it was further from Princes Street/Waverley than we thought, about 20-25 minute walk, the surrounding area wasn’t particularly encouraging. Staff were friendly, breakfast was plentiful. Our room was sufficient but could be better, quite tired in

A smaller hotel but well sited for those happy to walk into centre. The surrpunding area is not attractive however. Hotel perhaps is also not quite as nice as pictures suggested! Our room was ok, rather cramped, couldn't walk around the bed! Limited storage and hanging space.

It’s about a 15 minuit walk from the train station and not so straightforward. There’s taxis right outside and I paid around £6 for the cab. Once your at hotel walk back Into town to get your bearings and then it’s pretty straightforward! Enjoy

is there an easy way to get here from the airport?
You can get a tram (run every 7 mins I think) at the airport to Haymarket, the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from there, I'm sure someone will be happy to give you directions 😃.
