The Bank Hotel is suituated on Edinburgh's Royal Mile about 4 blocks down from the famous castle.

The hotel is in an old Bank built in 1923 and the rooms are all dedicated to Scottish artists and poets.

The hotel has a lively bar on the bottom floor and offers bar food as well as a great selection of drinks. This area is also used for the breakfast in the morning.

The room was very large, nicely decorated, huge very comfortable bed and large ensuite.

The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was that it had no lift - our room was on the very top floor!
