    Location was good and the staff friendly. The hotel ordered us a taxi to the airport in advance. Our room was quiet and very large (3 persons in the room). Definitely got the hipster feeling from this place. Modern and clean rooms.More

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
