Good place , close to Wawerly Station. Outside of the station you can take the bus to the airport and vice versa . The hotel is impotent and if you are lucky you can get the higher level with a beautiful view.

Wasn't expecting much to be honest but was so wrong. Anne behind reception was brilliant, really friendly and so helpful, a credit to Travelodge. Room was big, comfortable and very clean. Couldn't have been happier with our choice. Had the best time and wouldn't hesitate to book again when we return, hopefully very soon.

DO NOT GO THERE! Firstly please note the address is Central Princes Street - it is only when you get there and look for it, you find it up a dark filthy littered lane and discover the main entrance amongst the detritus of drunks etc. The room was large enough but filthy. - I have photographs where i wrote a...

It was good experience altogether. Location was fantastic, staff was friendly and room was comfortable. Quality of housekeeping was not that impressive so need some improvement. I hope Travelodge appreciate feedbacks from the customer.

Directly opposite the train station and central to the city, typical Travelodge, clean and tidy without any thrills, I had a large family room which seemed empty as Travelodge don't provide much furniture, slightly noisy at the front and the Bagpiper busker outside wore a bit thin after 5 nights

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was quite comfortable and had a very nice view. The entrance of the hotel was not very nice but except for that, it was perfect for the price. The bed was very comfy. The location is very close to the station.

Literally come out of Waverley train station turn right cross the road and it is there on Meuse lane! Absolutely perfect location! It's great for nipping stuff back to the room or if you get caught short! Staff were friendly, we arrived a little early but allowed us to check in earlier than we expected. Buses 30 second walk away...

Hotel is basic travel lodge, the entrance is down a back alley way which was full of litter, work men building and dust. I think it was main delivery place for shops lorries coming and going all the time we didn't have a good sleep at all. Hotel and room were clean and staff helpful and friendly.

We had a nice, new, clean room with queen bed. The bathroom was very nice and they provided big towels. The hotel is a bit hard to find, but the location is excellent for touring the sights. Our first night was very warm, and when I mentioned this the next morning, they gave us a fan which really helped. There...

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.
