The hotel is in a great location. It’s in the middle of old and new town. Clean and cozy . Helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was tasty but I think it was not cheap enough. The room has private and clean bath.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
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
