Great location

Nice Place, Nice Location.
Lots of stairs, but it’s a historical building, so that can’t be helped. Main floor is on the 2nd floor. Breakfast was on the 4th floor. If my 71 yo mom can handle the stairs, so can you! ;) 15-20 min walk to the castle. 10 min walk to the main bus stop. We got a 24-hr bus pass and used that to make our way around Old Town. We got to Edinburgh around 10am, and Castleview Guest House was happy to hold our luggage until check-in. When we got back there in the afternoon, our luggage was in our room.

Not worth the inconviences
The staff at this hotel were very nice and accommodating, however, the logistics of this building make it hard to recommend this hotel. There are nine flights of stairs and the first floor of the hotel is the second floor. Our room was on the very top floor so it was hot and there are no room temperature controls so we had to leave the window open all the time. There are only two plugs, none in the bathroom, and the beds were very uncomfortable. Breakfast was good, and the location was perfect for walking to everything. I also did not get the room I booked, I booked for two doubles and one single bed for four adults, but even after confirming my reservation by email, they gave us a smaller room with two singles and one double with no explanation as to why the room I reserved was "not available" upon our arrival.

Great location, comfortable room
Be prepared to climb stairs, other than that we loved our room, the location, the breakfast. There was 3 of us traveling together and we were comfortable in our room.
