Perfect place to stay in Scotland's beautiful capital. I could not have been more pleased and the staff were excellent and tended to my every need. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Edinburgh - just be aware that the hotel is a good ten to fifteen minute walk from Waverley station, so not ideal if... More

I stayed in this hotel last year & it was excellent so I returned. The location is perfect & hotel/staff are brilliant. Views of the castle are amazing to wake up to every morning! Would always recommend

Myself and my parents stayed here for 2 nights. Decent hotel, clean and friendly staff. We decided to share a room between the 3 of us, slightly disappointed that they couldn't be bothered to arrange the extra bed properly sticking it by the wardrobe instead of across the other side of the room. We phoned up to see if they... More

The rooms are clean, and fairly spcaious for a city centre hotel. The reception area was clean, bright and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a great location for grassmarket and royal mile. Walkable to princes Street and most of the city centre. Nice little bar attached.

Same standard you'd expect at a doubletree... nice welcome and decent room (after we were moved due to being in someone else's room). We were here for a gig in the castle so was nice and close. Had food in the restaurant which I'd eat in again.

Great City Hotel, with a great Service. The Breakfast buffet can be better with a wider choice of different food. The Gym is well furnished and the equipment new. But all in all good value for your money. Around the hotel you can find nice Pub's and Restaurants.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
