The Scotsman is located about mid-way on the Royal mile, right on North Bridge above Waverly Station. Tough to beat this location. We were not at all happy with our room as it did not meet our expectations. They were amazingly nice rooms, just didn't match the advertisement, and therefore didn't meet expectations or seem to be worth the cost. We booked two directors rooms. As advertised on the Scotsman website, all of these rooms have a nice view. One of the two rooms we received was identical to the website photo (traditional wood panelling with great view of Scott Monument and Balmoral Hotel). The second room was "equivalent" in size and quality, but was very modern and cold, had no wood panelling, etc, and had a "great view" of the underside of North Bridge and the roof of Waverly Train Station. Confirm that your room is at least on the 4th floor or above. I went to the front desk to ask to be relocated, and was treated as though I was being unappreciative or ungrateful (I was given a song and dance about how this is a boutique hotel, and all the rooms have their own unique character). At these prices, I don't expect to be made to feel badly about asking for ANYTHING, and the unique character of the underside of a bridge didn't seem so boutique.
