living near Edinburgh I knew this hotel had an excellent location for a night in the city. Although a German hotel chain this hotel has a very Scottish feel to it, in a renovated building in the Old Town.It is within very easy walking distance from the newTram and Waverley train station.
The reception / bar area is warm and cosy a lovely place to have a drink. rooms were clean and fresh ours had a view over Princess Street Gardens.
The breakfast looked good (cold continental)but I would recommend going up Cockburn Street to the Southern Cross Cafe to have a full cooked Scottish breakfast.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful, at the end of our stay they were happy to store our bags till our our late train home and being right next to the station this was very convenient..
All accommodation in Edinburgh is expensive during Festival when we stayed, but even at this peak time it was a very good price for such a central location.
