Wow factor at the fantastic location.15 minute walk to City Centre. The rest was a vile disgrace to the Hospitality Industry. Tired old building where you can still see the outline of Travelodge on the wall. Presented with staff who don't know how to wash or iron their uniform. The room was dirty and we asked for our room to...

I stayed for one night when visiting Edinburgh on business and the hotel was good value for only £59 per night. Dinner was £10 for a buffet style all you can eat and extremely worth the money! Service was slow at the bar at times as there was only one member of staff on the reception and bar. Room was...

Didn't even get as far as staying - car park is way too small. Had to park on the winding street with number of dodgy looking characters around. Service slow at reception - dingy room - odour of an old people's home - en suite discoloured & stained - window wouldn't close properly. Reception refused to refund. Would recommend not...

The website says they have car park - nope, it's residents only parking and you have to pay 24hrs pass ticket. Dismissive staff - students who did not care much. It's a cheap place to stay when in Edingburgh that's all. Room smelled of weed and under a sign 'no smoking' there was an ashtray in the room. My travel...

Horrible hotel, food & staff; wouldn't ever stay here again even on a cheap special offer. Room was basic and old fashioned, food was disgusting and staff were really unhelpful and didn't really care at all

We were expecting no window because of the very low price we paid for our stay, but we had a window with lovely view. Nothing to fault whatsoever with this hotel, everything you need from a hotel room, clean with a nice bathroom, spare pillows, tea/coffee, wifi. A short walk to the centre of town. Would thoroughly recommend.

Good to know: They do not clean the rooms when you are staying. No new towels, no nothing. Breakfast is disgusting, only good choce is to have a toast. Forget about coffee. Parking has about 10 spaces, no more. You need coins to pay for it. Furniture in the room is falling apart. We were 3 in the room. Paid...

They gave us a room on the very bottom floor which was like a basement there was no windows or air conditioning and the room was absolutely roasting it was so hot! Place is terribly run down but bare in mind this hotel is cheap so it's a case of you get what you pay for.

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.
