This hotel is a restoration of former offices of the Scotsman newspaper and is about as different from a chain hotel as you can get. It was my 60th birthday and they gave us a fantastic room on almost the top floor. The room was not huge but had an alcove up some stairs that led to a tower with four windows that gave a 180 degree view over Edinburgh . Just stunning. The bathroom was huge. Unfortunately we had to leave early so could not try the breakfast. The location is as good as you can get in Edinburgh. Only 2 minutes to the train station and 2 minutes to the Royal Mile. Nice Scottish gent will escort you and your bags to the room however we were disappointed by the eastern European receptionist who asked a scot if this was his first time in Scotland. Talk about robot questions.
