Perfect location for action and ....quiet!

The location on the Royal Mile is perfect and the hotel is easy to reach. WQe had a big and quiet room and an excellent bed. I loved the Nespresso machine and the coffee, the first time I have seen that in a hotel!!! We got great help at reception for recommendations and bookings.

Excellent Location and Superb Staff

The hotel location was perfect. Right on Royal Mile we were able to reach the Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Park with ease. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff was top notch. Extremely helpful and informative. I would recommend staying here.

Excellent location and great service

We were in Edinburgh for 3 days and because of our great location right in the heart of the Old Town we were able to see quite a few things. We also easily booked a tour to Loch Ness and the highlands that started a block away from the hotel. The restaurants in the area were all fantastic. We also visited London and Dublin on this trip, and our hotel contributed to making Edinburgh the best stop on our journey!
