We stayed here for 3 nights in the first week of December. Booked back in October and hadn’t bothered to check reviews or anything. Booked to stay here as it was cheap and close enough to the town for us to walk.

A small 15 walk from city centre, rooms clean, our bathroom had toilet and shower but very small. Breakfast was good and for the price it was okay. It is simply a base to stay and if you okay with basics then this is ideal.

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.
