Whether you fancy a cuppa or a cocktail (or cockt-ale: Drinks are topped off with a splash of beer), a complimentary drink on arrival, and chocolate-covered strawberries in your room, are just two of the thoughtful touches designed to take your mind off the fact that there's no lift in this listed, eye-catching buildings on the Royal Mile. You don't need to worry about lugging your bags upstairs, however: That's all part of the service. This self-styled contemporary inn with boutique hotel- style rooms was refurbished in 2012. The nine rooms (split into Mile and plusher Royal Mile) are spread across three floors. Think a pale gray-and-white color palette, wood floors, mirrored wardrobes, and giant padded gray headboards. The bar with its soaring ceiling, black-and-white tiled floor, and industrial columns offers live music every night. Don't worry though, there's good sound-proofing. You won't be kept awake by the noise from the bar but, if you sleep with your windows open, rowdy revelers on the Royal Mile might be another matter.
