    We stayed here in February 2017. Location was great, but the room size wasn't enough for 1 adult and 3 children. Staff were helpful and nice. Decent breakfast. Nice little hotel for those who need to stay close to main tourist attractions.

    Good location just off the royal mile. Friendly helpful staff, nice clean room with comfortable beds only let down by low water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was a decent cooked self service buffet.

    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-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
