We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel in early September. We were on the top floor with no lift. The rooms were very clean with tea and coffee making facility's and extra tea coffee and sugar on the landing if needed. The breakfast was very nice but unfortunately the staff are all Eastern European and don't understand English very...

The hotel seems to have a variety of room sizes. Looking around, some had large four-poster beds. Ours was a small, top-floor room with a tiny bathroom. On the other hand, it was clean and had big fluffy towels. The location; just two to three minutes walk from the Haymarket bus stops, the tram stop and the railway station, couldn't...

Was pleasantly surprised by this small hotel we had a room downstairs with its own garden and good size bathroom. Good transport network to Princes Street (bus) just around the corner and the Haymarket station. Excellent breakfast choice and lovely polite staff. Special mention to Roman our host could not have been more helpful and easy to get on with,...

Look. This is presents as a small hotel in a large city. It's fine. Yes the rooms a on the small side but it's clean, tastefully decorated and in a safe area. My only gripe was that E Booking have this parking available. There is but its on street and you pay a parking meter.

In short: overpriced, far away from city center, small, poky rooms - despite the fact that it was booked for 2 people (we're not a couple) they gave us a tiny room upstairs with a double bed, it was not a hot summer day, but the room was a sauna and we could not sleep. Overpriced, greasy breakfast too (skip...

Convenient and Quiet Location. Friendly and helpful staff. Room very comfortable and excellent bathroom. Breakfast enjoyable with very reasonable choice. Ideal place for me on my own. Have stayed in a lot worse at much greater cost.

The location was convenient and the room was nice and tidy but we would recommend going elsewhere unless you enjoy unfriendly, rude customer service. The light switch in the basement down the stairs where the room was, was broken and not fixed in the 3 nights we stayed. The manager met us at check in on Saturday night and when...

My wife, I and two friends decided on a trip to Edinburgh for 4 days. We chose a Hotel that had a real Scottish theme to it, The Lairg. As we approached we expected a nice warm Scottish welcome but instead standing at the door was a menacing Lithuanian Gangmaster who with a forced grin ushered us inside. He told...

We stayed over in a gorgeous building with a gorgeous clean room with lovely amenities except for intermittent wifi Our stay was very nice but unfortunately after a long day previously we were awoken at 8.30 by the abrupt Latvian manager screaming and shouting at the residents next door who seemed to have complained about something John Cleese eat your...

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.
