I stayed as part of a tour group and was very disappointed, the worst hotel of the entire tour. The bathroom was very grungy...everything else was just ok. It was not great, but ok for a low budget hotel.

Stayed for two nights on business - would not recommend. The staff were neither helpful, nor friendly. The food certainly wasn't worth paying for, as much of it seemed to have been kept in the fridge for who knows how long. The room was fine, though admittedly the television was smaller than my laptop, the bathroom wasn't particularly clean and...

Staff are good my mum always told me to say something nice. That is where it ends what a travesty of neglect, rooms need a complete refurbishment. Cracked walls poorly fitted carpets, minimal lights, dirty and unkept. House keeping is a joke, bed not made dirty towels hung back in the bathroom which where on the floor. Lifts physically creek...

Staved there with a group of old friends on the weekend of European Cup Rugby.Not cheap--even if it was a popular weekend.Twin room was more like downmarket student accommodation.Beds were poor quality and room hadn`t been spruced up for decades it seems.Needs re-fitting.Staff were friendly enough but it feels cheap,cheap,cheap. Good location between town and Murrayfield but not an experience...

I have called it a Hotel becuase in name it is but many things dod not meet the standards of...

Visited Edinburgh for the European Rugby Finals on 12/13 May 17. Hotel was near the stadium so was good in that aspect. The price was 3 times dearer than normal for a basic twin room at £199.00, the reception actually admitted the prices were highly inflated for the rugby finals. The room was very basic, no bedside tables (I was...

We booked in a hurry in the need for accommodation. When we called to cancel it was just over 2pm (the deadline for cancellations). So we decided to stay. PAID £215 for ONE NIGHT for something not worth more than £50 AT BEST. We didn't think much at first considering we were lucky to just have a roof over our...

If your looking at booking this hotel for a business trip....DONT! The hotel only cater for Stag Do's and are not interested in any complaints. I am all for people enjoying themselves, but not at 4am when I have a long day in work the next day. Reported this to the duty manager who was not at all interested in...

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.
