Staying at The Principal Edinburgh

The Principal Edinburgh, Scotland

Considering we haven’t quite mastered the art of time travel, it’s always an incredible experience to time travel by visiting destinations that make one feel as if you’ve been transported to a different century. Edinburgh has a magical way of doing exactly that. I had the opportunity to spend a few days at The Principal Edinburgh just last month and I can’t begin to say enough nice things about this hotel and the lovely staff.

The Scottish people make up one of the most welcoming cultures I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. Add a wonderful knack for hospitality on top of that and you’ll feel right at home. Every employee at The Principal became more of a friend than a host(ess).
This, simply is enough for me to generally enjoy my time at a hotel. However, every other aspect of my stay was excellent as well. The food was fantastic, the rooms were modern and luxurious. The building and the surrounding area of town was both historic and vibrant. The whole experience was one worth recommending highly.

 

Can’t help but feeling like Braveheart in Edinburgh. Half tempted to go storm the Highlands in face paint. @principalhotels

Obviously, as you all know travel blogs work in a way where reviews are often traded for complimentary nights of accommodation. However, I can assure you that Couple’s Coordinates will never post a positive review for a hotel or brand that we did not, ourselves, have a positive experience with. We have collaborated with hotels before and chosen to either critique them openly or simply provide a very generic overview of the hotel if the experience was not exemplary.
So, as I can assure you, the experience at The Principal Edinburgh was exactly that; exemplary. Without reservation, I implore you to book a reservation with The Principal, as I firmly believe they are the best hotel in Edinburgh.

Have any of you had a chance to visit Edinburgh, Scotland? If not, make a point to do so next time you’re in London (1 hour flight that will run you about $33 RT on Ryan Air). This temperature was about as cold as can be, but the people warmed it up so well. The locals are so hospitable and welcoming that you’ll immediately feel at home while also feeling like you’ve been transported through time. This trip to Edinburgh is the first trip I’ve taken completely solo in years. It was awesome to walk around and experience the culture firsthand and just enjoy a couple days here without an agenda. I met a number of friendly people and even made some new friends who live in Gambia! @principalhotels
