          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

          I don't know the number of the bus but I can tell you that if you don't have any heavy luggage you can easily walk to the hotel through one of the main roads of the city. It's a nice walk of 15-20 min.
