Nice clean hotel. A bit out the way from the local shops and city center but it's not a far walk. Nice river at the back of the hotel which you can walk beside. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Simple and quick check in for room 104. This is an older upgraded hotel, budget with the need to really invest in a comprehensive up-grade. The corridors are noisy when anybody went by the room which was basic with sockets blocked off, leaving minimal outlets. Reasonable lighting and the WIFI worked well. The twin beds were firm but “sleepable” with...

I think this hotel haven't any vacuum cleaner on site to use it for rooms. Hand towels should be a standard but you have to ask for it as you have only bath towels available in room plus not really good cleanliness.

I have been in many hostels and hotel in United Kingdom but for me this was so far one of the worst one. The firs problem we had was that when we arrive the attendant at the check-in was extremely rude with us. Secondly I stay in a humidity bedroom and the noisy of the river near my bedroom was...

I've stayed in cheap and cheerful hotels, but this is neither cheap nor cheerful. Where to start? We had two rooms over Hogmanay for our party, and the window in both rooms wouldn't shut properly filling the room with freezing cold air from outside which the tiny, antiquated Dimplex heater was quite unable to combat. Our toilet wouldn't flush properly....

stayed at this hotel for one night, was really wanting to go straight back home as hotel wasn't very clean, it is badly needing refurbished and a good painting. The cleaners are needing sacked, don't think they know what a duster is, can't see out window for dirt. Also £24 for taxis to playhouse. Would have rather have paid more...

Great location over road from Modern Art gallery. Very cheap compared to other hotels in Edinburgh so very good value. Basic but clean - staff very helpful and welcoming, including to our dog. Two cautionary notes - room was very cold - this needs addressing (take own source of heat in winter?) and would not recommend rooms in annex as...

Stayed for 1 night for Hogmanay celebrations and booked it expecting cheap and cheerful, also knowing that any place to stay was at a premium. If you want a place to sleep for the night, this is more than adequate. If you're staying for longer periods of time, maybe look elsewhere. The hotel is in desperate need of renovation. The...

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.
