    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    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

    I would have thought this place is child friendly. There are no lifts however and you should ask for a lower floor room. It is very accessible to the city and moving with a young child would be easy if staying here.
