Amy Adejokun Section editor

Piries is one of Edinburgh's few budget hotels. The hotel offers clean rooms at good value, a short walk from Edinburgh's Haymarket Station. Made up of three Victorian townhouses on a residential street, Piries has a hostel-like feel, but offers the comfort of private rooms with en-suite bathrooms. The hotel is basic, has friendly staff, and all that you need for a comfortable stay. Aside from the rooms in the basement, which were cramped and had little to no natural light, rooms in the hotel seemed spacious and agreeable. Many feature high, ornate ceilings and ample floor space, but all are uniformly decorated in a modest manner. A good choice for families and groups.

    Location 7.07 /10

    The hotel is located just around the corner from Edinburgh's Haymarket Station. Away from the touristy centre, there are plenty of cheaper restaurants, cafés and bars in the area. The city centre is accessible by foot (around 20 minutes), bus (there is a bus stop at the bottom of the street, with regular services into town), or by train (just one stop away). A direct airport shuttle bus stops outside Haymarket Station, and takes around 25 minutes to cover the 20km or so between the hotel and Edinburgh Airport.

    Accommodation 5.20 /10

    With an impressive 32 rooms squeezed into three townhouses, the size of certain rooms at Piries leaves much to be desired. Basement rooms are to be avoided if possible: aside from the obvious downsides of having little light and fresh air, the rooms seemed especially pushed for space and had an unsavoury damp aroma. At the other end of the spectrum, some of the front-facing rooms were vast, with large bay windows and plenty of light. On the whole, Piries offers basic, clean rooms that come equipped with TVs, Wi-Fi (paying), and facilities for making tea and coffee. The junior suite has additional comforts such as a large flat-screen TV, an I-pod dock and mini bar. Although the general feel of the hotel was a little bit sterile, efforts had been made in the direction of modernising and sprucing, to the extent of the odd artwork or photograph. Piries Hotel is a good inexpensive option for families and large groups, as many of the larger rooms boasted ample space for cots, extra beds and baby gear. Bathrooms were equipped with large, monsoon showers and complementary products. The incredibly noisy airing fans were a slight downer, though.

    Overview 5.95 /10

    A major refurbishment that took place in 2010 has seen the signature dark blue and white colour scheme sweep across every nook and cranny of the hotel. Aside from the odd shapes of some rooms (unavoidable in old buildings) and the labyrinth of interlinking corridors, Piries is a basic hotel that meets the needs of the modest traveller. A tartan-clad bar/salon is at the disposal of guests night and day, serving up an impressive array of local whiskies and some bar snacks. Wi-Fi is available in all areas of the hotel, at an extra charge.

    Food and drink

    The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but breakfast is served in the bar area next to reception. Help yourself to a continental breakfast buffet of cereals, toast, cold meats and cheese, with hot croissants and muffins. The bar is open for guests all day, and light snacks are available.

    To know

    There are plans to spruce up the small garden at the rear of the building. The new garden will feature a children's playing area, increasing the family-friendliness of the hotel. Piries follows strict green initiatives, allowing guests the option to re-use towels and save on product packaging.

      • Value for money 7.07
      • Location 7.13

      The Georgian townhouses occupying The Bonham have come a long way since their days as student halls of residence. Located in the The Drumsheugh Gardens triangle at the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, The Bonham is an elegant property with contemporary flair. Despite housing an impressive 48 bedrooms, The Bonham has retained an intimate feel, and each room is unique. Many rooms feature large bay windows and lovely views over Edinburgh's rooftops and down to Leith bay. The hotel supports local artists and houses a permanent contemporary art collection, on display in common areas and bedrooms. It is touches like this that remind you of The Bonham's roots in Edinburgh, a city where it fits in well and a city in which it is a welcome addition.

      • Value for money 7.01
      • Location 5.08

      Channings is a lovely relaxed hotel, with a home-away-from-home feel. The hotel was converted from five adjoining Edwardian houses in 1990 and lovingly restored to retain the superb original features, yet offer guests every modern comfort and convenience. Retaining a home-like feel, the cosy lounges, large fireplaces and charming garden are just a few of the hotel's lovely touches. Despite the relaxed atmosphere, service is highly regarded in the hotel, and guests are welcomed with a personalized note introducing that night's duty manager and concierge. Located in Edinburgh's New Town removed from the main touristy centre, Channings is a good choice for those looking to explore a different face of the city, or those in search of something a little calmer.

      • Value for money 7.02
      • Location 7.5

      You can expect a good standard when you book a Hilton hotel, and Edinburgh's Grosvenor doesn't disappoint. The hotel is spacious, clean and professional, although unfortunately lacking in character. A stylish and modern interior works well within the terraced Georgian townhouses, and design is classic and elegant throughout but original features have unfortunately been lost. The best thing about the Grosvenor is the size of the rooms. Although room shapes vary (this is one of the charms of the old building), many bedrooms boast high ceilings and large bay windows.

      • Location 7.47

      The Hudson is in an excellent location and has an intimate feel, but unfortunately the small boutique hotel looks as if it's seen better days, and doesn't quite live up to its four star rating. The hotel's foundations lie on a popular bar, and the bar-like theme extends to the rooms, which are uniformly decorated in a garish red and brown. The hotel is perfectly adequate, and the simple, relaxed style is a welcome find in a city that boasts more luxury than practical hotels. Perfect for friends or singles stopping over in the city looking for a central pied-à-terre from which to explore local attractions without breaking the bank. Not so great for couples or those looking for more comfortable surroundings.

      Dunstane City hotel and its neighbouring sister, Dunstane House, are family-owned establishments with an intimate feel and each with their own distinctive character and qualities. Dunstane City is the sleeker and more modern of the two, attracting on the whole a younger and more corporate crowd. The hotel is light and spacious with attractive rooms and friendly service. Guests can make use of facilities at both hotels, including Dunstane House's traditional Stane bar which serves up over 90 malt whiskies and has a lovely beer garden in front of the hotel.

      Dunstane House is as impressive on the inside as it is from the out. The grand detached house has retained its Victorian family home feel, despite now offering all modern day conveniences. Located in a residential area of Edinburgh, the hotel boasts comfortable accommodation and on-site parking a short walk from the main city centre. The hotel is traditional and cosy, with authentic Scottish décor and a relaxed atmosphere.

Guests are also significantly outnumbered by locals and foodies in the award-winning restaurant on the first floor and cocktail bar on the ground floor. A melting pot of renaissance chic with a contemporary edge, The Rutland lends itself to a younger crowd. The hotel also boasts a swanky nightclub, The One Below, which is predictably located below the hotel... guests staying at The Rutland are automatically put on the guest list, which is quite a privilege on a busy Saturday night!

      The Caledonian Hilton, soon to be re-branded a five star Waldorf hotel, is one of Edinburgh's iconic architectural masterpieces. Ideally located on the threshold between Edinburgh's New Town and the Old Town, The Caledonian sits the base of the infamous castle, looking out over Princes Gardens. The best thing about this hotel is its spaciousness ? a luxury in a historical town, and one that can't be changed thanks to the building's listed status. An old railway hotel, The Caley (as the hotel is affectionately known in Edinburgh) pairs period features with a modern, sophisticated decor. The hotel already has a reputation for excellence, so it's no surprise that it's going after its well-earned fifth star.

      Besides the excellent location, beautiful rooms and stunning building, the best thing about The Balmoral is its team of friendly and dedicated staff, who effortlessly give the impression that anything is possible. The hotel was first opened 15 October 1902, but didn't become The Balmoral until 1991. Expect Victorian splendor and classic elegance with a modern twist - the hotel completed a £7 million refurbishment program in March 2004, and the results are still fresh. The Balmoral is home to Edinburgh's only Michelin-starred hotel restaurant, but there are three more eateries to choose from if formal dining's not your cup of tea! Relax in the spa, lunch at Hadrian's Brasserie, or enjoy a champagne tea at the stunning Bollinger Bar. If you have time after all that, pop outside and explore Edinburgh's numerous attractions, which seem to be conveniently clustered right at The Balmoral's doorstep.

      The hotel's small black brochure warns of a ?dangerously decadent' experience, but nothing prepares you for the excessively sumptuous attention applied to every detail of Prestonfield House! Driving up to the manor is like approaching the scene of a costume drama. A winding road leads you from the suburbs of Edinburgh, through the beautifully kept fields and pasture lands of the ancient owner's manor house, where the two house cows live in luxury.

      • Location 9.23

      As should be expected from one of the world's forefront fashion designers, Hotel Missoni is an extremely stylish, light, fresh address in the heart of Edinburgh's Medieval Old Town. The glamourous Italian fashion label is renowned for its use of colour, stripes and intricately woven fabrics, and the hotel doesn't disappoint! Every aspect of the hotel screams style, with a flamboyant palette and stunning textiles throughout. Avoiding the over-employed temptation to clad everything in tartan, Missoni nevertheless sports a subtly Scottish charm (we loved the Missoni-print kilts worn by the doormen?). Incredibly confident, Missoni is quite possibly the only hotel in the world that could get away with a multi-coloured theme, silver quilted headboards, enormous circular chill pads and shaggy rugs? and still make it look cool. The hotel feels in many ways like the set for a fashion editorial, and even the brochure reads like a mood-board, stating matter-of-factly: ?Missoni. For Scotland. Bold. Forthright. Dramatic', which sums up the Missoni experience perfectly.

      The Witchery, located right by the Edinburgh Castle, is one of our favourite places to stay. Not only is it in prime location, right in the centre of town - although tucked away in a back street away from the hustle and bustle - but it also exudes some of that authentic Scottish charm, despite its original interiors. The service is friendly and efficient and the staff here will go out of their way to make every guest feel special. An ideal hotel for couples looking for a romantic getaway with a twist of originality.

Not that you'd know, there are no flags or plaques to mark the spot. Ring the doorbell to be greeted like an old friend, and enter the beautiful high-ceilinged entrance hall, where you'll be instantly blown away by the elegance of this boutique guesthouse. The property is exceptionally well-decorated, with stylish contemporary furniture sitting alongside original Georgian features. It's impossible not to feel chuffed when you're told recurrently to make yourself at home, knowing that most of us can only dream of a home half as beautiful! The modesty of this inner-city pied-à-terre makes it even more attractive. Guests are given a tour of the property on arrival, handed over a front door key, and left to their own devices. Staff mobile numbers are pinned on a clipboard in the kitchen, should you need further assistance.

      Visiting Edinburgh's Hotel du Vin you would never guess that the hotel is in fact the latest addition to a nation-wide family of 15 luxury boutique hotels. A chain yes, but the hotel itself feels like a one-off Scottish phenomenon, complete with a scattering of tartan, a whiskey lounge and a cosy cigar bothy to snuggle up in on a cold winter night. Modest and stylish, Hotel du Vin has plenty of reason to blow its own horn: 47 beautifully decorated rooms and suites (with bathrooms to die for) sitting on a goldmine of history in one of Edinburgh's trendiest areas, it would be futile to cover up the fact that this little gem was one of our favourites. With a large emphasis on dining and drinking, the hotel has a labyrinth of nooks and crannies, mezzanines and wine cellars to relax in. The restaurant itself is large, open plan and delightfully provincial. Popular amongst locals and foodies, and boasting a staggering wine list to navigate your way around, the restaurant is at the heart of the hotel.
