West End
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

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 place is a very nice bed and breakfast within walking distance from the Haymarket train station. It's on a quiet street but with pubs and supermarkets nearby. You can get to the Prince Street (centre of Edinburgh's tourist and shopping area) in 5-10 minutes...More

Nice and clean room, very friendly owner, amazing breakfast (try the scottish full!), quiet neighbourhood... It was great! It's close to Haymarket with some really nice pubs, and it takes around 15 mins by walking to the historic city centre.
