clean and comfortable, good staff.
No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.

... John Grey, a night watchman for the Edinburgh City Police in the 19th century. When John Grey died, the dog reportedly spent the rest of his life sitting on his master's grave. We had (another) pint at the adjacent Greyfriars Bobby pub and reflected on our love for dogs - and how much we missed ours back home in the States.

However, Edinburgh is a small city and I can walk to Leith from Merchiston Crescent easily in an hour or so....walking back will ...
