I read other reviews that said about the noise. You need to ask for one of the larger, quiter back rooms. rooms 203, 204,205,206,207 overlook a quiet courtyard area at the back. yes you are looking at the backs of other buildings which are higher up and quite some distance away and an area overgrown with weeds, but when on a break most people tend to be out all day. any rooms ending in 3,4,5,6,7 will therefore be quiter . I saw the room opposit mine which looked really cramped with a double and single squashed in. My room, 203, had a double and a single and lots of storage and room space.
Breakfast was very good all you can eat buffet, with fresh fruit, yoghurt, variety of cornflakes, toast, croissant, bacon, sausage, eggs, beans, hashbrowns, juice, hot drinks. Try to get it as part of the room deal. because it costs £9 if you have to pay. If not,there was a tiny cafe up near St Giles that does a full breakfast for £5. The hotel also serves quite good value meals through the day, which you can call up from your room and go and collect when it is ready if you don't feel like eating in the restaurant.
There are free safety deposit boxes in the foyer ..but BEWARE...you have to sign a waver staing that you have to pay £100 for a lost key!!
if you arrive by train, go up the escalators to the walkway. follow the walkway all the way round to the right. at the end will be some steps. go up the steps and turn left. At the moment there is a barrier there for road works. the road splits into two and you take the right fork up the slight hill for the hotel. It takes 2 minutes from this exit to the hotel. If you have heavy bags, you will need to exit the station by the slope and then turn left and first left again.
There is a pathway with steps at the back of the hotel straight onto the Royal Mile. at the top of the steps turn right for the castle, St. Giles, Gladstones land, and camera Obscura. Turn left for The Palace of Holyrood, Arthurs Seat,John Knox house.
A tip for anyone travelling with children, get hold of I-SPY EDINBURGH.I bought one for £2.50 in the castle whisky gift shop, but you can get them on-line.It has loads of hidden things that you might miss if you didn't know they were there.
