I had originally wanted to book my husband and I into a B&B or hostel in Edinburgh but honestly I couldn't find what we wanted within our budget and in a good location. I started looking at hotels and this one popped up - and let me tell you, what a find!
We were lucky enough to get a room with a view of the castle - fantastic! The hotel is basic but has everything you need. You only get 30min free wifi per day - but go to a coffee shop nearby and you'll get free unlimited access :). We didn't opt for the breakfast option, instead choosing to go to the local coffee shops. Finding the front door can be tricky at first, it's wedged between 2 stores and then you take an elevator immediately up to reception.
You are a 20 minute walk up to the Royal Mile, or you can hop on a bus that's just on the next block. It's really quiet and safe walking around the area at night. We went out for meals in New Town on 2 nights and walked the whole way, the streets were really quiet and we felt really safe. Great bars on Rose Street behind the hotel with live music, drinks and great atmosphere.
