I booked the Howard from Australia some months back, as a treat for my husband.
We had been staying with family for 2 weeks and this was our little holiday away .
I could go into loads of detail about how lovely the hotel (...More
I loved the discreet, and charming atmosphere! Felt like home away from home.
Quiet and warm with excellent size room and bathroom, excellent decoration and very friendly staff!
Definitely the place to stay in Edinburgh!
Stayed at the Howard for the second night of our visit to the Edinburgh Festival.
The room was an adequate size and very nicely furnished and decorated in a traditional style. The bathroom was large and had a separate shower. The bed was super comfy...More
My family and I have visited the Howard on several occasions over the past ten years but were disappointed this time.
First of all, we slept very little. The walls in the Howard are so thin, you can hear the sounds of the other guests...More
We were upgraded by our vacation agent into this hotel because he did a mistake in our other booking. It was the best upgrade ever. The butler was super kind and offered prompt service. He took care of all our demand with no blink.
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

According to google maps we are 15 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge. There is a good public transport link from the train station to the hotel. The local bus services 23 and 27 will get you here in under 10 minutes.
I am a fast walker and it took me about 15 minutes. It is up a slight hill as well. It would be a very short taxi ride. My wife and I walked it back from pubs around the castle which is further every night and enjoyed the... More
