I stayed in this property (Having been moved from Lauriston Place) while my wife was working in the local hospital - when she told me we were staying in a Premier Inn - I admit to turning my nose a little. Well how wrong can you be, the new look Premier Inns are light years better than similar priced hotels...

Fantastic location. Right on Princes Street with views of the Castle from our room. The staff were superb, going above and beyond when they found out we were celebrating a family birthday. We were genuinely touched with their efforts. Thank you!

This is our second stay at this particular Premier Inn. The location is second to none. Our family room had views towards the castle and is more than adequate for a family of 4. The beds are so comfy and we all love the breakfast selection which is such a bargain if you have kids too. It was our youngest...

We stayed for two nights in a family room . We could not fault the service provided by the friendly helpful staff or the quality of both the room and the breakfast. A perfect location for a family break in Edinburgh. We can't wait to return . Thank you to all at Premier Inn Princes Street.

Perfect location for shopping, eateries & visiting the sights of this very lovely city. As always you know what to expect when you arrive at a Premier Inn, but the service here at reception, in the restaurant and at the bar was exceptional. The views are to die for and the food was very good too. Perfect in every way...

Premier inn as usual lived up to expectations. Great price for an overnight stay in a great location in Edinburgh. The room was so comfortable and clean and the bathroom was excellent. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. A lovely bar and service excellent as well, even though they were quite busy .

Stayed for one night in February half term 2017 and found everything about this hotel to be excellent. We came by train and the hotel was a 5-10 min walk along Princes Street. Stayed in a family room which had a superb view of Edinburgh Castle. Breakfast was very good, the atmosphere was relaxed and again there were good views...

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

All the delights of Princes Street are literally on your doorstep, while all the heritage and landmarks of Edinburgh are just a few minutes away. Stroll along pedestrianised Princes St to enjoy top name brands on one side, and one top notch view of the park on the other.
