We exited at Waterloo Place yesterday after our descent from Calton Hill, having entered Calton Hill from the other end at Royal Terrace/Blenheim Place. Waterloo Place is like an extension to Princes Street at the eastern end, still very centrally situated, and with hotels, yet...More

To me this would be the tourist centre of the town, right next to Waverley station, sitting on Princes street, loads of hotels, people, public transport buzzing everywhere. Just looking at the reviews I saw there was a nice old cemetery there, missed that, shame,...More

We stayed on Waterloo Place at the Travelodge for part of our stay in Edinburgh. This area is really central and close to Princes Street, where all the buses go from, and is within easy walking distance from the train station and royal mile.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
