Leonardo Boutique Hotel Simpson Edinburgh, Edinburgh
Hotel is in a great location and is easy walking distance from the main site. I stayed 5 nights and had a wonderful stay. Note, if you are driving, make sure you get directions for where to pull in for the hotel. They have an area to park to unload your bags and then very discounted parking as well.
