Scene

Basic modern hotel with colorful bar and restaurant    

The Premier Inn has an energetic vibe, given its location near the International Conference Centre and Haymarket Station. It draws a mix of business and leisure travelers, who congregate in the lobby and in the colorful restaurant, which has striking aquamarine walls and lampshades, and violet-colored soft chairs. The bar has a big-screen TV with live sports. Rooms have basic wood furniture with violet accents, along with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. The staff is friendly and helpful, and eager to offer dining and sightseeing recommendations. 

Location

West End location within a five-minute walk of Haymarket Station, and within a 10-minute walk of Princes Street shopping    

Premier Inn Edinburgh City Centre–Haymarket is in the Haymarket section of the fashionable West End. To the northeast is an elegant residential neighborhood, and to the west is a funky area with numerous ethnic restaurants and local pubs. Haymarket Station is conveniently located within a five-minute walk west of the hotel. At the station guests can catch the T50 tram, numerous trains and buses, including several that go east to Old Town and tourist attractions. Edinburgh International Conference Centre is a three-minute walk east, and the Usher Hall concert venue is a 10-minute walk in the same direction. One of Edinburgh's best walking areas, the scenic and charming Dean Village is a 15-minute walk north. The western end of Princes Street is a 10-minute walk northeast. The city's major attractions – Edinburgh Castle, the Grassmarket, Old Town, the Royal Mile, and the Scott Monument, are all about a five-minute drive, a 15-minute bus ride, or a 20-minute walk east of the hotel. The Premier Inn is a 15-minute drive east of Edinburgh Airport.
