    Very tired rooms with poorly maintained decor. Toilet seat was loose. Bed was about 1 foot off the floor. Internet connection was slow. Continental breakfast offering was pathetic. A hotel living off its past glories.

    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable

    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
