I had never heard of this hotel when I booked it but I must say that it is a hidden gem and I'll stay there again. It is only a short walk from Haymarket train station on a quiet street. The hotel has been wonderfully converted from an old tenement building and it has retained some wonderful features like the stair tiles.
Staff were very pleasant and friendly and we could leave our bags and go exploring before check in time and after we had checked out. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from Princess Street and the Grassmarket with bus stops near by as well if you don't want to walk. The hotel is also very near the canal which has been rejuvenated and has bars and restaurants.
The room were very nice. The only thing I would say is that ours was quite dark as only one of the windows let in light, the other looked at a brick wall. Shower as great too and there was a lot of room to hang up clothes etc.
Will definitely try to book this hotel again when I go back to Edinburgh.
