Me and my friend stayed for an overnight at the Britannia. Staff were friendly, room was a good size and was clean. Comfy bed and got a good nights sleep. Only issue was that paint work being done directly outside our room so the smell was quite strong but understand that work has to get done at some point and...

Brittania hotels often get bad reviews but they are budget hotels and usually offer good value. We stayed for four nights and could not fault it for the price we paid. They do mid week offers for as little as £99 for four nights B&B including evening meal. The breakfast was buffet style with a good choice, all the dishes...

The sheet wasn't on the bed properly, there was a wealth of dust all around the extractor fan.... the room was poorly remade after my first night - damp towels folded in the...

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.
