Princes Street Suites

Recent guest reviews

Great location and very spacious suite. I would stay here again.

Very nice hotel only 10 minutes to the Royal Mile. Rooms are clean and there is a nice kitchen . My only complaint would be that there is only one bathroom. I think it would be ideal for another bathroom if you have four or more people in your family or party Staff is very friendly and very helpful

I wish we would have booked our entire stay at this location. We had a huge 3 bedroom, 2 bath suite which over looked Princess suite. Very close to the train station and major bus stop. Also close to all the shopping on Princess Street and a short walk to the Royal Mile.

Very confortable and fantastic installations completed with a beautiful view of Old City of Edinburgh

We visited Edinburgh for a 5 day gateway for some sightseeing and visiting the highlands. The hotel apartments look great and have everything you will need, I even got some ideas for our apartment back home. The apartment is cleaned and towels are changed daily which is not the case for most other apartments. The view is great and the large glass windows instead of wall on the side of the building enhances that as you can see it from anywhere you are sitting. The staff is also very helpful and kind. We will definitely stay there again!

We saw sites, ate food and walked the town. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was immaculate. I was a little disappointed with the connectivity of the wi-fi, however it was free of charge. The amenities were top-notch. They will simply give you a double bed (we wanted two twins) if you do not call-ahead, even though we had requested it online.

Great big rooms, which would be good for people traveling in large groups. The location is very central in Edinburgh. The rooms were not especially clean and we found them to be noisy.

Great location, quiet yet convenient to all transportation, shopping, restaurants, and sights.

Had to spend the first night at another hotel d/t overbooking- all arrangements were made by Princes Street Suites personel. When I finally got to check into hotel the next day, they did upgrade me to a very large suite, which was more than expected. Everything was nice, except the floors were dirty and the beds weren't the most comfortable I've slept on. They are fairly new, so maybe a few wrinkles to iron out yet? You cannot beat the location for train station access, bus access, and a very short walk to either old town or new town. I would reccommend this hotel, just call or email before hand to verify that you will have a room.

This was a one week research trip to Edinburgh. The room was spacious and comfortable. While we received an exceptionally good deal-possibly the best in Edinburgh-there were definitely some rough edges. The towel service came when it wanted and not every day, some of the furniture was in bad shape and was fairly flimsy. Still, we had a large, modern room. This is clearly a budget hotel that doesn't look like other budget hotels.

This place is incredible. Definitely the best place we stayed on the UK trip. For about the same price as a standard hotel room, we got an apartment with a full kitchen and laundry. The décor was quite modern but situated in an historic façade. Don't be fooled by the look of the entrance, this place is first class. It is a little hard to find initially and the cross street is about six stories below entrance level. That said, the location couldn't be better with all major attractions in walking distance. A few things that would have helped me: Parking is free on the street in the evening, but you'll need to find a garage during the day. The desk has a few to recommend, but we chose the cheaper option at the train station and ended up parking all weekend for 6 pounds since we went in after midnight. I think normal rate is about 13 pounds per day. Grocery is just about five blocks away and has everything you could need if you choose to use the kitchen. The studio is really a quite large one bedroom, but since the bedroom does not have a window, I guess they have call it a studio. Plenty of room for two people. Good views with big windows and of course, check out the roof top deck. I can't recommend this place enough – we didn't want to leave.

Check in smooth but rooms were two doubles not the queen and twins requested. We were told we'd get moved the next day since we were there two nights but never heard from them. Allowed us to store luggage until late in evening when train left. Overall very nice modern spacious apartment.
