    Staff was very friendly and decent. Rooms could be a little more modern. For calm sleep after tiring visits of the old city (and its pubs) this is really a suitable place. Easy to find and close to public transportation.

    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
