Head for the West End district of the city. The hotel is clearly marked on our MAP page and we suggest that you print this off.

Haymarket Train Station at the West End is Edinburgh’s second station but many of the trains stop here. If your train does stop at the Haymarket, we are only a 5 minute walk away.
From Waverley Train Station we recommend a short taxi transfer (approx: 5 to 7 minutes) or alternatively walk (approx: 20 to 25 minutes) or get a bus from Princes Street (outside the station) going to the Haymarket and getting off at the end of Shandwick Place (2 minutes walk from there).
