Superb location, but very annoying and unbelievably loud bangs made by room doors that wake you up at 6 o'clock. Like a warzone, without this would rate 4/5. If you wake up early and are not after luxury, this hotel is for you.

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

Yes, you can leave it with the front desk, they will hold them for you while you go out and can go back to the hotel late just to pick it up.
