A short walk away from the Grassmarket with plenty of places to eat and drink just round the corner. Very reasonably priced compared to other hotels in Edinburgh and the rooms are warm, a good-size and with comfortable beds - Breakfast also included.
The staff is very polite, helpfull, friendly and accomodating.
Every request we made was accomplished.
The position is handy since you can walk to the city centre or take the bus just in front of the building.
The building is old but very confortable, we...More

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.
