Close to the Train station
This is an old building and the hot and cold water on the sink are separate. The shower mixes the water, but be careful. The staff is friendly and the breakfast buffet is worth $10 USD pp. It is very good and so is the staff. The train station is around the corner, so we went to Aberdeen 2 hours away for the day and went to Glasgow 45 minutes away for the day as well. The hop on hop off in Edinburgh is quite a walk away down Princes street to stop #2 at St. John's Cathedral. One might want to take a tram, a bus, or a cab to get there. The concierge got a cab for us on the day we were going on a tour that met us by Edinburgh Castle. The cab was gratis, but would have been about 4.50 GBP.
