Embra Gem.
I make an annual trip to Edinburgh for work in early December. Each year, accommodation gets pricier but no better. It was a happy accident to stumble across Number 45: it's characterful, comfortable, quiet, friendly, clean and serves a very nice breakfast. Although I walked from Waverley Station - a pleasant leg-stretch after sitting on a plane and tram - bus routes aren't too far away and it's easy to get into and out of town. It's also well located for roads south out of town. I really liked it.
