I’ve not stayed there but it looks like a decent location. You should be able to get to both the Grassmarket/Castle area in the Old Town and Princes Street (City Centre) in the New Town within around 15 minutes walk.

Edinburgh doesn’t really have a financial district, possibly George St that runs parallel to Princes St is the closest thing as some of the banks have offices there.

Enjoy your trip

Looking at your details (age and interests) I would say that you would find the area to be okay. It is definitely a student area and as a previous poster says, about a 15 minute walk from the Grassmarket. Oddly enough, when he was at uni my youngest son had a flat on Gillespie Place, which is just a street further on from Gilmour Street/Place, so we know the area reasonably well. The main road is busy and not very elegant but it's safe enough and it is a student area. And there is reasonable public transport. If you are visiting as a tourist i.e. not as a student, you would perhaps be better trying to find accommodation in a hostel nearer the centre of the sights - they are at a comparable cost. Any other quesitons, plase feel free to email me and I'll do my best to answer or else ask the "once-local resident"!

The area around the EICC is now known as the financial district in Edinburgh so you are within a short walk from that B&B.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Hike to the top of Arthur's...

by KPajonas

Hike to the top of Arthur's seat. Its just outside the city, and the hike isn't too high at all. Once you've reached the top, you'll be blown away by the winds (literally - so be careful), and the view is spectacular as well. Take a tour of William Wallace's castle and experience the history of Braveheart.

Visit the Tourist office. ...

by SusanneBeck

Visit the Tourist office. It's really great and has lots of leaflets on Edinburgh and the area around it. It has a lovely shop full of interesting and good quality souvenirs. There are also lots of people to ask for information and there are even internet pcs!!! I'm not sure if the tourist office is technically on Princes Street but it looks like it is! It's on the opposite side to the shops. Trying to get my friend to understand vt and why I just had to get on those PCs..

Murrayfield Stadium

by huwhit

Rugby at Murrayfield, what an experience!!! Try and arrange a visit to Edinburgh from May to June, during the Six Nations, or during November, for the Autumn Tests, to experience something special.

When the Stadium is full at 67,500, the place is amazing. All these screaming Scots belting out 'Flower of Scotland', it gets the hairs on the back of your head going.

The first time I visited Murrayfield was in November 2001, for there Autumn Test against the All Blacks, it was great.

Last time I was there I abseiled into the Stadium as part of a Cancer Research fundraiser. That was spine-tingling!

Also got there in November of 2004 to see the mighty Wallabies get up (easily) over the struggling Scots.

Royal Burgh

by margaretvn

Among the old buildings and the cobbled streets of this Royal Burgh on the River Forth you can relive the life of the 16th and 17th century. There is a refurbished palace and garden which date back to 1597. An exhibition and video in the Town house show something of the burgh’s 400 year history. It is a charming little place.

12 miles west of the Forth Road Bridge Fife

Traditional Folk Music

by Nemorino about Sandy Bell's

This is a very small pub where they play live folk music seven nights a week. Usually four or five musicians gather in the back to jam.

Admittedly I took this photo in the afternoon, not at night, but they were already playing music and drinking beer. I've been here several times, and there was always some kind of live music going on.

And it was always VERY crowded, so don't go if you are claustrophobic.
