          Staff was very friendly and decent. Rooms could be a little more modern. For calm sleep after tiring visits of the old city (and its pubs) this is really a suitable place. Easy to find and close to public transportation.

          West End
          Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
          industrial Britain had their most desirable
          neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
          Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
          citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
          grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
          crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
          sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
