Property Description

The West End Hotel offers stylish, comfortable accommodation in a mixture of tastefully decorated standard and ensuite rooms in the centre of Edinburgh, close to all that this magnificent city has to offer. Providing a high standard of customer service and with a great location well-equipped accommodation; the West End Hotel is a great choice, whether you are visiting Edinburgh on business or pleasure.

The hotel is located in a quiet residential area, while still in the heart of the city, just a 15 minute walk from the West End of Princes Street as well as being conveniently located within walking distance of Edinburgh's many tourist attractions and the city's main business districts.

The high ceilings, beautiful traditional cornicing, bay windows and warm colour scheme complement one another wonderfully.

For larger groups or individuals looking for shared accommodation, we also have some dormitory rooms.

The bar is open daily and serves a wide variety of traditional Scottish malts, wines, bottled and tap beers and lagers. This venue is a great place to relax and have a quiet drink, meet with friends, watch international sporting events on the two large television screens or listen to live music. Live music nights take place each month on a Friday and Saturday night. Please contact us or look on our website for details of upcoming events.

Latest Review

" The beds were not clean, upon arrival the sheets didn't smell fresh and it was clear that someone had been sleeping in it before (hairs in the bed). Almost no chargers in the hostel which is very annoying, you can basically only charge your phone at the entrance of the dorm (not anywhere else after 11pm). The staff is great and very helpful. There were white spots in the Jars of jam (I think it was fungus growing in it) "
