If you plan on walking or using the bus system to explore Edinburgh like I did, I highly recommend this hotel. Loved the location–less than ten minutes walking distance of Prince and Leith Streets, which makes finding restaurants or tram/bus stations easy. (I visited Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, and one of the venues was a couple buildings down the street.) I also enjoyed the interior design, especially in my bathroom (which you could tell had recently been renovated and included a rainfall shower).
Not recommended if you have difficulty walking or if you're traveling in a car. There is no lift in the building, and guests are expected to find their own parking.
