This beautiful and historic hotel is located in the centre of town and is easily accessible by public transport.

The nearest train station is the Edinburgh Waverley Station which is only half a mile, or a 15-minute walk, from the hotel. Getting a taxi from the station takes approximately 5 minutes, and the fare is between £6 and £8.

Edinburgh International Airport is just 7 miles, or 25 minutes via taxi, from The Principal Edinburgh. A typical fare is under £25 (this may be higher on public holidays).

There is regular tram service for £5.50 for a single trip, or £8.50 return, which takes about 40 minutes and stops at St Andrew Square.
