    This is a really nice hotel, placed on the foot of Arthurs seat. And its only 100 m to Roayl Mile, just through a close and you are there. The room is absolutely excellent. Clean and nice Personal is Good, the service in lobby good.

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
    this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
    visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
    that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
    place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

    What are the hours for your breakfast? Do you offer "to go" options? I'm hoping to get a hike up to Calton Hill before the start of a CIE bus tour this summer and it might be fun to eat up there.
