“Recommended - excellent location, food, staff and a bonus great lively bar”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Located in part of what was the National Trust for Scotland's old HQ building on Charlotte Square, this place is fab.

Good location, just off Princes Street.
Quirky contemporary decor in an old Georgian building.
Good quality food and a lively bar.
Excellent staff in all parts of the venue - hotel, bar and restaurant.

The layout is unconventional in that you walk through either the restaurant or the bar to get to the lift that takes you to the hotel above - it's not obvious at first but it kind of adds to the quirky feel of the place.

The accommodation was great, quality fittings in a large high ceiling room. The rooms are named after famous Scots, with a large black and white photograph of the person the room is named after adorning the main wall - ours was the 'Rod Stewart' room (I know! This should have been kitsch and naff and shouldn't have worked but it does!

We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the quality of the food was excellent. The bar too was great - very lively and both featured friendly enthusiastic young staff. I'd visit both the restaurant and the bar as venues in their own right.

Excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'Rod Stewart' room - looks out over the street - very nice.

First Impressions were it is a bit like a maze, had to get one lift then walk up stairs to get to our room but the room was very modern clean and tidy, especially the bathroom.
As people have said the rooms can be a little small but its nothing too much to be bothered over as everything else makes up for it, nice robes and tea and coffee making facilities etc, all what you would expect for your money really.
View however not great - looked out to the back of house and fraser...

Would stay again though

I stayed at the Angel Share on 31st oct and the 1st November. I loved it from start to finish. The food was excellent. The great young staff were hard working knowledgeable and jolly. I was inspired by their enthusiasm. The decor was superb and the themed photo walls were so interesting. There were six of us and we decided to eat in the beautiful bar which was crowed on Friday tea time. Regardless the waitresses and waiters were spot on and smiling throughout. The meal was excellent. What made this hotel great most of all was the refreshing attitude of all the staff we met. You should be proud of yourselves the way you created a wonderful welcoming Scottish atmosphere for all. Thanks for making our wee break tremendous!! Francis Mc Sherry

stayed there last weekend and would definitely recommend it, the rooms are a little small but for a short break they are sufficient, staff very helpful and hotel trendy with clean nice linens/towels - our breakfast was very good with a nice waitress on shift but what made it for me was the bar -live music the night we were there with a nice atmosphere - not the cheapest of stays but worth paying that little bit extra

Room Tip: some street noise early in the morning probably front rooms would have less

Absolutely perfect location, just off Princes Street. Very near to bars, restaurants and public transport. The rooms were lovely, I stayed in 'Denis Law' which was a comfortable double. All the rooms are named after Scottish folk such an Andy Murray and Rod Stewart. I didn't have any issues finding the lift to reception as some people have previously mentioned. Reception is on the 1st floor and was manned by a lovely lady from Poland and a lovely guy from Canada. They were particularly accommodating to my elderly parents who were also staying at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble, giving them extra tea bags and fresh milk for their tea. They stayed in 'Paul Brannigan' which was a large twin room. The rooms were furnished well. Flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities, safe and a hairdryer. Bathrobes were provided. Toiletries were aplenty in the bathroom, shampoo, shower gel, liquid soap and moisturiser. Breakfast was lovely with a good choice, you could also ask for a variation if required such as just poached eggs on toast instead of Eggs Benedict or a full Scottish breakfast. Again, staff were lovely. Stayed for three nights which was perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

Angel Share hotel is a lovely little hotel within walking distance of many lovely shops and bars. The hotel is beautifully and tastefully decorated. We spent 3 nights there back in June. The rooms are really nice with the most wonderful comfy beds. Although our room was quite small it was perfectly adequate with nice furnishings and a lovely bathroom with both a shower and a bath. There was a piano player in the bar one the evening which we thoroughly enjoyed. The bar is exquisitely decorated with very stylish lighting. My only complaints are that the French door in the room did not have a curtain apart from a net, so let the early morning light in which woke us, very early and also there was not a mirror in the room which was annoying for putting on make up and checking you looked ok before you went out.
The food in the hotel was excellent with great choices for both breakfast and dinner. The hotel is on the Guided tour bus route which was very handy as it was easy to catch a bus to go up into the Old Town rather than have to walk up the steep hill 2 or 3 times a day.
The Staff were very friendly and helpful and I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone.
