I really don't know what to say about our stay here. Everything from the moment we arrived just seemed... Odd. Within five minutes of checking in, two men were trying to let themselves into our room. No knock, didn't introduce themselves as hotel staff and when we didn't let them in, they walked away. The room we stayed in was...

Reviewed 28 February 2017 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights during 6 Nations in February. Arrived early on the Friday and was pleasantly surprised to find one room available for an immediate check-in. The check-in process was smooth, and staff both professional and polite. The rooms we were allocated were on the second floor with views on Princes Street-lovely, spacious rooms with nice modern bathrooms and...

Located just across Princes Street from Waverly Railway Station, this is a convenient stop for rail travelers. Finding your room can be something like solving a three-dimensional maze, but the rooms are comfortable and well-equipped. Views of the Castle, the National Museum,and the Park.

Very well appointed hotel with large and well furnished rooms. The Princes Street hotel is almost directly opposite Waverley Street station so ideal if you travel by train. The location also means that you can be straight out into Princes Street/Rose Street for shopping/dining and it is also a manageable walk to the Royal Mile/Castle area. The staff are very...

Out of the three countries I visited, Hotel Indigo, Scotland was my favorite choice. I wish I had stayed there longer. I felt comfortable and at home here. Everyone is pleasant. ( I have yet to meet a Scot that isn't) As described, It is a modern yet old world charm hotel center of the cosmopolitan, New Town area. It...

This review is actually to acknowledge the huge helpfulness of Laura on reception. I am a Spire Ambassador with IHG and found myself in Edinburgh on route to a very important appointment when I realised I needed to print off a crucial document. I am not staying at the hotel as this is a day trip just for this purpose...

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.
