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
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Depends on the booking. I booked through a booking site and could choose between two prices - one with breakfast included and one without. Breakfast there is really good though, and well worth the price.
