Neighbourhood
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.

We loved this hotel. The location of the hotel was really good. The room was a roof-room but very lovely and clean. The breakfast was good. The library is a cool place to work or rest after a long day walking around the city.

A lovely building with friendly & helpful staff, breakfast options were good (including GF) and relatively good location - in terms of distance to centre. My side of the bed was slightly uncomfortable but I think that could be luck of the drawer.

Nearby? The Bonham about a block away was great. The Devil's Advocate, about a mile walk, or short cab ride was great too.
