12-15mins walk to Princes St (centre of town) on the New Town side. Lots of restaurants on the way between hotel and city centre, so lots of choice without going all the way in.
Hotel itself is fine - bathroom all good (not big, but perfectly functional), bed comfortable, tv good, brand-name shortbread & hot chocolate included on top of usual tea& coffee facilities - both replenished each day. Full wardrobe and desk.
Yes, it's a little old and not shiny-new-modern. The walls are pretty thin, so pray you get nice neighbours (ours were all perfectly quiet- but we could hear when they got in and out of bed... so we were very glad they weren't noisy at all!). But if you get a good deal on this, and make use of reception if you have any problems (we didn't!), you'll be fine! :)
Oh, and they let us use their big storage cupboard all day even after we'd checked out, so we could use our last day there properly and go up the volcano etc without our backpacks!
