This is a hotel I can really recommend. Clean and fresh room with an amazing bed, large TV, nice bathroom and good soundproofing. The breakfast was not too big in selection, but great in quality - worth the extra price. The bar served really good...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
