Hotel is in a fantastic location, around 15 minutes walk to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle and about 10 minute walk to the nearest tram station and buses. Staff were friendly and helpful with my early check in. My room was clean and spacious. I didn't want to carry my suitcase with me for a few hours after check out, so they offered to store it for me safely until I was ready to collect it later that day. Really enjoyed my stay here.
