The room was smaller and more basic than what we had expected - there was no table in the room and the fridge was miniature.
Furthermore, the room had not been fully cleaned from the previous guest (there were a few stains in the bathroom). Upon leaving the hotel my son crawled in under his bed to pick up an item that had fell under the bed. When he came out he had grey stains in his hair from having been close to the carpet. Apparently, more frequent vacuum cleaning under the beds would eliminate this issue.
On the plus side was the helpfulness of the attentive staff in advising us on what to do in Edinburgh. Also, the Scottish breakfast included in the booking was tasty and met our expectations.
In summary - small room, cleaning that could improve a bit, a helpful staff and a tasty breakfast.

Vi övervägde mellan detta och att hålla oss i stans parker …

Just a bit further down the road we could see the kelpies, wow, they are huge!! Unfortunately we didn't get to go in today as we needed to get back and it was a fair distance to walk for Allan so Julie and I took some quick photos as it ...
... I am trying to branch out.
The first 25 minutes of our tour involved a somewhat historic walk about the city. Then we walked down to Cowgate (a street just off the Royal mile), then under South Bridge and then up the first street on the left hand side. The Auld Reekie office was locked there, as well as the secret (not so secret) vaults under South Bridge.
Now the name Auld Reekie come from Auld meaning old and Reekie referring to ...
... with gorgeous moldings. Exactly what you want from an old building. Reminds me of my days back in New Rochelle. 3 floor walk up, tight stairways, sleeping in the attic, no air conditioning, wooden windows.... Just like home! Spent most of the day today walking. Edinburgh is a lot like Yonkers. Everything is up hill...both ways. There are a lot of closes ( closed walkways going under building, most of the ...
