New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

This was the last location we stayed in on our weeklong visit to Scotland. Probably the best hotel that we stayed in during our entire trip. The only downside is we were on a bottom floor apartment which gave way to all of the noises from the street. The hotel itself is

Dear Fatma, Thank you for your question. We do have an elevator in the building to all floors except the ground floor. The first, second and third floor apartments are all lift accessible, however there are a couple of steps to the elevator on the first floor. Best wishes, Susann, Digital Marketing Manager
