I stayed at the Ballantrae with 5 other friends and we shared three rooms on the top floor. The showers were very unsatisfactory as the water would either turn cold or stop half way through having a shower. The rooms were not very clean and...More
I don ' think the price matches the room.
The ground is severally noise and our view through the window is just a pile of rubbish.
I think the manager should be more aware.
Certanly there will be avaible rooms during the week for change....More
Very comfortable hotel. Was able to leave my overnight bag at the hotel until check in time. Central to my needs in Edinburgh. Room was clean and was a good size. Staff were very helpful too. Will most definitely use again.
I have never come across such run down hotel. It was extremely dirty and filthy.
It was too late to find anything else to stay otherwise I would move to another hotel.

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.
