The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The A/C wasn't working very well, but otherwise a beautiful hotel. Super comfy beds and designer toiletries. The view out our window of Edinburgh Castle was breathtakingly beautiful.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers

Yes, there are a number of restaurants that are open for breakfast within 200 ft of the hotel. You can look them on Google map. We ate at a coffee house right next door and it was pretty good.
