Good value. A clean, spacious and comfortable room with a large screen TV. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The shower has good water pressure and hot water. A little further from town than expected however manageable. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

How to reach Edinburgh Thistle HotelBy car
Head for the West End district of the city. The hotel is clearly marked on our MAP page and we suggest that you print this off. St. Mary's Cathedral is the nearest landmark if you are approaching from the north. Other landmarks are the Haymarket Train Station if you are approaching from the west or the Airport and Edinburgh Castle if you are approaching from the east or the south.
Haymarket Train Station at the West End is Edinburgh’s second station but many of the trains stop here. If your train does stop at the Haymarket, we are only a 5 minute walk away.
From Waverley Train Station we recommend a short taxi transfer (approx: 5 to 7 minutes) or alternatively walk (approx: 20 to 25 minutes) or get a bus from Princes Street (outside the station) going to the Haymarket and getting off at the end of Shandwick Place (2 minutes walk from there).
From Edinburgh Airport:
Airlink buses run a frequent express shuttle service approximately every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day (in conjunction with Night Buses - N22) and takes 25 minutes. get off at the Haymarket and it is a 5 minute walk.
By public transportation
From Waverley Train Station & Edinburgh Bus Station:
On Princes Street get any of the following Buses: 3 / 4 / 12 / 25 / 26 / 31 / 33 / 44 and get off just before the Haymarket. Turn right into Manor Place and walk down to the end. Thistle Hotel is on the right-hand side.
