I stayed here for the tattoo, when rooms in Edinburgh are at a premium, but I had a very nice double studio with a view of the castle, with bathroom and kitchen for a very reasonable cost. This is student accommodation in term time, and I was slightly concerned at what it might be like. The room was spotless, well equipped with cooker, microwave, iron etc., and the young staff were friendly and helpful.I liked the key card access to the front door and room, it made it very secure.
It was very handy for walking back from the tattoo late at night, 15 minutes, all down hill, and the main route for the crowd, so I wasn't walking alone.
There is a Sainsburys one stop on the corner, and Grassmarket, with a fair selection of pub type restaurants is a 5 minute walk.
The only complaint I had, (minor) was the bed was a bit lumpy.
A bit of tourist info by reception would have been appreciated , with local bus service routes, as despite Edinburgh being a tourist city, I found information hard to come by.
I don't have an i-phone, but it really is essential here!
From Waverley station take a 5 minute walk down Princes St.turn left, and from outside the National Gallery on The Mound side, Lothian bus 23 and 27 will take you to Chalmers Hospital at the top of Lady Lawson St. It runs via The mound, Castle hill, George IV Bridge and Greyfriars, So no need for an expensive tour bus ticket.
