We stayed for one night at the Brooks Hotel after attending an event at The Usher Hall. The location was ideal, really central and perfect walking distance for Usher Hall. Lots of bars, restraints and shops nearby too. The hotel itself is beautiful, the lounge is very cosy, comfortable and welcoming and we enjoyed taking advantage of this. The room...

We had an overall enjoyable stay at the hotel. We had breakfast only once there but both the continental buffet and the cooked breakfast were very good. I personally loved the decor in general and the room being so adorably small but very functional;Bed was also very comfy. Cleanliness was spot on and they always refilled our box with complimentary...

Great Hotel, Great Location staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast and Afternoon Tea was delish. Will return to hotel soon. Walking distance to the centre tram also available. Disappointed that there was no underground parking left so make sure you book in advance.

A good quality hotel located within walking distance of the main attractions and shopping areas. Friendly staff. The rooms are a little small, but clean and tidy. Standard of breakfast is good with a wide range cooked to order. The lounge and honesty bar are a nice touch too. Would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.

A lovely building and a good sized bedroom with nice decor. As other reviewers have said, the bed was amazing if you like a nice soft mattress as I do! The hotel is conveniently placed for exploring Edinburgh, with everything just a short walk away and some fantastic places to eat right on the doorstep. I stayed at this hotel...

Had an overnight stay here recently just for the evening with afternoon tea and prosecco deal. Afternoon tea was a little disappointing however breakfast the following morning definitely made up for it. Staff were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Bed was very comfy and the room was very clean, not too far away from grass market or fountain...

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is decently located - just ten minutes walk from haymarket train station and around 20 minutes from princes street. It has a tesco metro and many little cafes nearby. The hotel itself is well decorated. There is a lovely common room with some board games. Staff were friendly. Our room was fine....

Conveniently located near Haymarket station close to a number of cute cafes and restaurants. It's a short walk to the city centre. Very friendly staff and tastefully decorated main lounge area. Standard double room was small but had everything you would need. Very stylish and clean. Great value for money!

This is a very pleasant hotel, with more character than typical chain hotels. It has an old world charm, with friendly and helpful staff. It is well situated, a short walk from the tram station which comes in from the airport. It is located in an area with some decent bars and restaurants within walking distance, but also close to...

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.
