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

Sorry, I don't know as I used public transport and taxis also. I would contact reception and ask them, they are very helpful. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.

The closest station to EQ2 is Haymarket, but Waverley is 26 minutes' walk away or bus 1 or 34 will take you there in 15 minutes. A taxi will take approximately 13 minutes.
