More modern in design, this hotel is right in the middle of great bars and shops without the hectic pace of the royal mile. One must visit the White Hart Inn on any visit to Scotland and it is across the street!

Great location, perfect for Museum of Scotland and Royal Mile. Used as a base for city centre shopping and the winter festival. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming, offered advice and directions to local attractions.

labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as

Yes, there are a number of restaurants that are open for breakfast within 200 ft of the hotel. You can look them on Google map. We ate at a coffee house right next door and it was pretty good.
