Good afternoon Montserrat,
We're so sorry you found the room dirty, this is highly unusual for our hotel and comments regarding cleanliness are almost always positive. However I have looked into it and we had a new housekeeper on duty the morning of your arrival...More
No frills accommodation! Lovely clean room, plenty tea and coffee and comfy bed. Can't argue for price. Right in the middle of things! We had a lovely view across the gardens. Bar next door was brill and cheap too.

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
