Overall, hotel stay was nice--location is great. Important to note that the elevator is on the reception level which is approximately 20 steps up from the street entry. They will help with your luggage but we observed a number of older guests having a tough time getting up the stairs to reception.

Vintage Edinburgh
Wonderful atmosphere in this old grand hotel. The furnishings were a bit worn in places but we loved it! The staff were friendly and smiley and very helpful when we needed to sort transport to the airport. We had an unexpected upgrade with a window on the corner of the building looking up at the castle. Breakfast was good and plenty of it. The central position near the railway station saved us taxi fare and there are lots of places to eat within walking distance We will be looking to go there again if we revisit Edinburgh
