    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

    It is worth the five stars. Some unreasonable guests have a misplaced sense of entitlement to quibble. The service at the Edinburgh Waldorf is superb and totally due to excellent management, staff training and recruitment.
