    I stayed 1 night at Halcyon. The room was clean and tidy and very spacious. Breakfast included and friendly staff. A great location within walking distance of Calton Hill and Princes Street, convenient to getting in and out of city centre.

    Thanks for your review. I am really sorry you found the hotel not to your liking. During the festival rooms are sold at a premium. Our hotel is a very traditional Georgian historic building and I appreciate may not suit everyone's taste. I will investigate...More
