It is very well located; Grassmarket is in the Old Town, 5 min away from the Royal mile and 10 min walk from the Museums. Room was fine and clean and they leave in your room complimentary coffee, tea, water and cookies. If you book your breakfast the day before, it is 10 pounds and you can order everything on the menu. They have a mini bar with fruits, cereals, cheese, ham, etc. If you do not book in advance it is 16 pounds I think. Right in front of the hotel (Grassmarket) you have plenty of restaurants, pubs and it is very lively between 5 and 9 I would say. The hotel seems to host many events like festivals, weddings, etc. so watch out for the noise if you are on the first floors. I was on the 4th and it was OK, but I'm not sensitive to loud noise. Staff is sometimes very nice and attentive and other times just OK. There is a small interior pool and gym. Overall, I had a pleasant experience.
