On first impressions I was put off by the dirty doormat and stair carpet that needed hoovering and still needed a day later.
Our room was old fashioned but it was clean with plenty space and toiletries so we were happy with that.
The rooms are quite big, and the hotel is about 8 min walk from princess street. The wifi doesn't work and when we asked, we've been told that it must be because of our apple devices. So don't expect to have wifi when staying at...More

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.
