By Bus
Leave the Bus Station by the St. Andrew Square exit, one floor above the bus arrivals level. Outside, turn left and walk to the first street on your left, which is West Register Street. You will see a map on the wall pointing to us. Follow this road around, and we will be there somewhere, between the hairdressers and Guildford Arms. We are on the top floor.

By Train
The train will stop at Waverley station. Follow the signs from there to Princes St. When you reach it look across the road, and you will see a Burger King. We are right behind that.

By Plane
The plane will stop at Edinburgh Airport. The good news is that we are nowhere near that! When you get there, take the airport bus, which will stop on Waverley Bridge(last stop). Walk up to Princes St, turn right, and you will come across the Burger King which we are behind.

More Landmarks
Landmarks help find places in a new city, so here are some to help you. As we said we are behind the Burger King. The Burger King is opposite the Balmoral, with the big clock you can see in the header of this page. Also opposite the Burger King is the horse statue. Our road is in between the Burger King and the statue.Our doorway is between the Guildford Arms and the Hairdresser. Make sure you go to the very top floor, where our reception is.

Close To Everything

Close to Shopping
Princes St is the greatest shopping centre in the world. It has all the ‘high st’ shops, specialty shops, department stores, food and more. The great thing, though, is all that is on one side of the street. On the other side is a huge garden area, a monument,church, and a rather large castle. It can only be described as beautiful, and its literally right on our doorstep.

Close to touristy things
Apart from all that on Princes St, take a 2 minute walk over NorthBridge, and you will be on the Royal Mile. This is a stretch of road (guess how long) that goes from the castle, down to Hollyrood Palace (where the royals live when they’re in town). Its an incredibly historic stretch of road, and the focus of all things touristy. The tourist Bureau is also located across the road from us.

Close to entertainment.
Edinburgh has over 700 pubs, so its pretty easy to be close to them. Indeed, we have a few of them in just our building. All the clubs and pubs of Edinburgh are within stumbling distance from us. Its great.You can somehow always get back no matter what state you are in. Theres also Art Galleries, museums, restaurants and whatever else you want close by.
