Located on a quieter residential street not too far from the centre of the city, this was definitely apartment living. Our apartment had a kitchen, large bathroom, separate bedroom and a very large living room with a gas fireplace. There were grocery stores nearby so we were able to prepare breakfast before heading out to explore Edinburgh.
We did not bring the proper electrical adapters to plug in our phone and computer but the hotel was able to give us a couple of them to use during our stay. The hotel staff is very attentive and bar is open all night long. The hotel also has a nice collection of DVDs to borrow to watch in your room.
Edinburgh Castle is a 10 to 15 minute walk away so it's not like you can just walk out of your room and be in the middle of the city, but the location does give you an opportunity to walk around more of Edinburgh.
I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would definitely consider staying here again.
