The hotel is located two blocks south of the Royal Mile and at the foot of the Edinburgh Castle. The view of the castle from our room was amazing - the best photographs of my trip are from my hotel room! The room had modern decor and was larger than most European hotel rooms. The downside is that the hotel is right on Grassmarket Street, which is a very popluar place to party at night. It was very noisy, and consequently, it was hard to sleep on Friday and Saturday nights. Also, the staff wasn't particularly friendly, unlike the majority of Scotsmen I encountered during my trip.
