About Mercure Edinburgh City - Princes Street Hotel

Charming hotel with dramatic views of Edinburgh Castle

Between Old and New Towns

Mercure Edinburgh City - Princes Street Hotel lies midway along the main shopping thoroughfare, which divides the original medieval town from the magnificent Georgian 'new' town. It's 5 minutes' walk from Waverley train station, and within walking distance of many key sights.

Castle and Royal Mile

You'll be a 10-minute stroll through Princes Street Gardens from magnificent Edinburgh Castle, perched atop an extinct volcano, and you could visit the Scottish National Gallery on your way. It's also 10 minutes' walk to the Royal Mile, lined with museums and historic buildings.

Afternoon tea spread

The hotel's Princes Dining Rooms include a brasserie for light meals and hearty British and international fare, and a lounge serving snacks and an elegant afternoon tea. Vast floor-to-ceiling picture windows offer panoramic views over Princes Street Gardens to Edinburgh Castle.

Free WiFi, great views

Every room comes with flat-screen cable TV and free WiFi, plus a work desk, and many have castle and city views. Superior and Privilege rooms have extra perks including Nespresso® machines and free movies, and 7th-floor Superior rooms each have a balcony with magnificent vistas.

Good hotel and great location.
Overall, I had a good time staying at this hotel. Majority of the staff were nice. The only 2 things I wasn't too impressed on was there wasn't a safe in my room, so couldn't keep all my personal things locked and had to bring it to reception each morning. Also for breakfast, they didn't have a few things like scrambled eggs or vegetarian sausages. Certain things were missing.
