An elegant boutique hotel with twelve beautifully appointed guest rooms and 9 luxury serviced apartments. 5 are 2-bedroom and 4 are 1-bedroom, 2 with a private garden.

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 the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

A very comfortable overnight stay in a lovely spacious room overlooking the West End of Princes Street. So central yet very quiet, despite street life outside. Friendly staff at reception and at breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Do all one bedroom apartments have a microwave ?
My kids were all beyond the age to require babysitting, so I don't have personal knowledge of this. Trip Advisor lists this hotel in the top 5 hotels in Edinburgh with babysitting, but I would check with the hotel directly if I were you - and let them know the ages of your kids. (On a related note- look for a toy chest full of kids games in the apartment you stay in- we didn't see it until we were leaving).
