Catch up with old friends

Pros: Lovely hotel in centre of city with good access to train and bus stations as well as shops, pubs and restaurants. Hotel felt safe cosy and friendly.
Location: Ideal for sight seeing or in my case the city centre shops. Local bars and restaurants all great
Christmas shopping trip to the city and Christmas markets. Great time and able to catch up with my old friends. Did the Christmas market last year in Berlin and Edinburgh didn't disappoint.

Eriääin hyvä sijainti. Kävelymatkan päässä kaikesta mutta rauhallinen. Liikenten äänet eivät kuuluneet.

Thank you for taking your time to rate our hotel. I was very excited to read that our location was satisfactory for you! Indeed we may be just off the beaten path, but the area itself is just on the edge of the Old Town so everything is a reasonable distance away from us. Should you ever choose to visit Edinburgh in the future, we would be delighted to host you again! Kind regards, Patrik Heiling Night Duty Manager
