We found this hotel to be clean, convenient and very well located. I believe we were in a general room since we were traveling as part of a tour. We did not look out on the castle but our room had two queen beds and space for two suitcases ( not always available in the U.K.). There was a good hairdryer in the desk in front of the mirror. There were sufficient plugs for charging our phones, etc. there are shampoos, conditioners and bar soap in the bathroom. Nice shortbread cookies with the coffee and teas and hot chocolate. Adequate closet space and ironing amenities. On the downside, the tub is a bit difficult for us "older" folk with no handrails and we couldn't find a thermostat. Our breakfast was included as part of our tour and it was okay. Nothing special but apparently there is a very nice restaurant with castle views. The lobby and bar areas are modern and didn't seem very inviting to me and to go from the entrance to check-in and on to the two elevators require quite a few stairs so not easy with luggage. However, the comfort of the room and beds and the excellent location in the lively Grassmarket more than make up for any deficits. I would stay again.
