I stayed here with my wife and young children for 2 nights. I chose this hotel as the 5 of us could (comfortably) share one room and the price was (relatively) reasonable. Also, due to its proximity to the centre meant city attractions were mostly walking distance. Traveling with a young family, this proved to be a great choice as...

We stayed for one night as our Anniversary present to see the Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo. The tram from the airport is excellent running every ten minutes and as cheap as the bus, but quicker! Back to the Inn, we arrived early afternoon and met a really friendly and helpful chap called Chris on reception, who during the booking process...

This hotel is in a great location in the centre of Edinburgh facing Princes Park Gardens and the castle. Inside the hotel was very quiet and peaceful, and a very comfortable room. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As its name suggests, Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Central (Princes Street) is situated on one of the most famous streets in Scotland, if not the world. 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. Walk the Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh Castle, a destination steeped in history. Step out in style if you're coming to enjoy Hogmanay or the Edinburgh Festival. Then turn your feet homeward and come back to great food at our restaurant and a lovely comfy bed. ... more   less
