    Excellent stay. Friendly, efficient staff and very comfortable accommodations. The location is perfect for a visit to Edinburgh. We walked everywhere! However, buses, taxis and trains were easily available. The history of this charming hotel is exceptional- do take the time to learn about it.

    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
