Very clean, very friendly staff, incredibly close to all major tourist attractions. You can walk to all kinds of shops, restaurants, and pubs within a couple of minutes. I would definitely stay here again next time I’m in Edinburgh.

It’s a steep climb from the train station. When we went my daughter booked an Uber cab, cost was under £15. Avoids all the hassle.
