          This hotel has an excellent location in central Edingburg. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are quite small and in a need of some renovation. I would book this hotel for my next visit in Edingburg.

          But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
          are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
          look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
          beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
          Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
