After much research, I booked 54 Frederick Street for 4 nights. It was an excellent choice. The owners were lovely - even if most of our interactions were at 8 a.m., the minute Tessa opens the office! Tessa gave us our room early (appreciated after a rough night on the night train from London), provided helpful suggestions as to wool shopping and I enjoyed talking to her about cats (Henni is adorable.)
We booked a room without an ensuite bathroom - but we had a private bathroom across the hall. This was no issue to us, given the price of the room. The room itself was spacious, with a very large bed and plenty of storage. Free wifi, with a good signal. The rate provides breakfast at Rick's Cafe, adjacent to the lodging. The breakfast was excellent, and we also had dinner there one night as well.
The location is perfect. You are right on top of George Street, Rose Street and Princes Street. We walked everywhere - including Britannia (we recommend taking one of the buses back though - there are three that will bring you back to the hotel).
I would return in a heartbeat.
