In the interest of transparency I should probably say that I work as a supplier to IHG and stayed here at the recommendation of them. Well given that word of mouth is the best marketing possible I have to say that I am a new convert to the Indigo concept and will recommend it to everyone. From the moment I...

I'm a very frequent business traveler but came here on personal family vacation. What a great place! Yes, it's historic. Yes, the rooms are very comfortable, clean, discuss, and all around very nice. But the location! You're walking distance to everything! The castle, museums, restaurants, pubs, train station, etc! Highly recommend this hotel!

Spent the weekend at hotel indigo. It can't be beaten for location. The rooms were quite small but adequate. if noise bothers you I would ask for a room high up as the trams passing our room were very noisy. Had breakfast delivered to the room before check out, it was really tasty and worth the money. Will definitely be...

I stayed in this new Indigo property over in February for two nights and loved the location. Granted, it’s not in the historic Old Town, but the location on Princes makes it perfect if you are getting/leaving Edinburgh by train from Waverly Station as it’s literally just across the street. Even if you need to head to the airport, the...

This hotel is situated right in the heart of things- directly across the road from the railway station, Tourist Information Centre and bus stops for both sightseeing buses and the city buses. The staff were welcoming and polite, our room was on the 5th floor on the front, the window did not have a view because it was really high...

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.
