This is a great hotel in a very nice neighborhood in Edinburgh walking distance to most of the places you want to see in the city. We had a room below street level that was a good size with a nice bathroom. Staff was very...More
This is an odd little boutique hotel. My husband describes it as not really a hotel, just a bunch of rooms stuck together. Our room was downstairs below street level, with windows and a door to a "patio" just below the sidewalk, which was a...More
My son and I found the junior suite lovely, roomy and well equipped. The sofa bed was lumpy but the king, canopied bed was very comfortable. Service and staff were speedy, helpful and very amicable. Would stay again for quiet, atmospheric interior and well-located position....More
From the outside ,it looks great- understated elegance. When you got in, you realized it needs updating tremendously! Our room was spacious and that was about all. The drapes were falling off their rods, broken bathroom tray, dirty furniture, no mini bar, and the chandelier...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

According to google maps we are 15 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge. There is a good public transport link from the train station to the hotel. The local bus services 23 and 27 will get you here in under 10 minutes.
