          Great location being close to the train and bus stations. Helpful staff, though some of their foreign accents make it hard to understand what is being said. Room comfortable and breakfast good. Tea and coffee provided in the room.

          Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
          is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
          But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
          are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
          look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
