This inn is perfectly situated for making the most of your time in Edinburgh, especially if you like to explore on foot. Right on the Royal Mile, it is just blocks from the Edinburgh Waverly Train Station, Edinburgh Castle, Carlton Hill, Holyrood Park, and the Scott Monument. There is enough to see on the Royal Mile and in the Old Town shops to fill a day, but for more adventure, hike up to Arthur's Seat.
The room was nicely appointed, with thoughtful provisions made for a comfortable experience. There were plenty of outlets, hair dryer/iron, a desk, and wardrobe. They provide laundry service and, yes, help hauling luggage up the stairs. There is no elevator.
I would probably suggest eating in Old Town rather than eating every meal at the pub, but the pub was a convenient option for food at the beginning or end of the day. The noise from the pub does carry, particularly on the first floor directly above. There was a World Cup game the first night of our stay, which was as rowdy as you would expect. The volume on the second night was audible, but not disruptive.
If you want to make the most of your time in Edinburgh, enjoy the charms of Old Town, and travel with only as much as you can carry, this is the place to stay.
