Beautiful old brownstones, great location. Our room was located on the lower level, in the front, and you could hear street noise and people walking by. The furniture is a bit tired, could do with better couch and chair. I loved the bathroom, the shower...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

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.
