Booked to stay here to see a concert in Edinburgh. Lovely building from outside and welcoming and efficient front desk staff. Had a fabulous first floor room with view over the square. Comfy bed, both slept like logs, and nice bathroom with good shower. Only minor criticisms are the shower curtain leaked water onto the floor and the tv remote...

We booked this hotel as a special treat for a long weekend. We arrived very early (11:00) and were told our room was not ready (no surprise) but we could put our bags away securely. Very politely and efficiently booked in by friendly front desk staff. We went back around 4 pm to get into our room and freshen up...

Love this hotel. We have been there at least 4 times in the past few years and it's always the first one we look at when we know we are coming to Edinburgh. Friendly staff, lovely rooms and great breakfasts.

Stayed at the Bonham for 2 nights on a business trip, and would definitely return. The hotel is in a lovely quiet location in residential Dean village area, with big windows looking on to lovely views both front and back. Rooms were generously sized, with very large and comfortable beds. It's not 'designer' in décor, more quietly stylish and comfortable,...

Had a wonderful stay at The Bonham and to be honest struggle to understand some of the more negative reviews. The staff at check in were very friendly and attentive and were much the same come the next morning when we left our baggage and at check out later that day.

We travelled to Edinburgh for my Christmas present and were very pleased with our choice of the Bonham. The hotel is situated in a great place just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the Princess street area. We were in room 317 which was more than adequate to meet our needs.

My room was nicely decorated, but with some issues; no drawer space at all, and no safe, which is unusual in this day and age. The room felt as though it had been designed by an interior decorator rather than a hotel designer. Staff were generally good, but there was nobody at reception when I arrived, with approx 10 people...

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.
