No one can help much w/o more info.

What is your budget?

When will you be there?

How many days?

How many people?

What sort of atmosphere do you like?

Thanks much...I will check all those out..and I apoligize for not giving more info..I'd like a hotel that is central to walking about ( is the old city and the Royal Mile area the key to that.?)...one that maybe includes b-fast or at least near local restuarants, moderate in price..say no more than $125 US...old style architecture not a proglem as a matter of fact the ambiance is better for me...thanks again for all that have helped

Do you mean for a single or a double? $125 (£75-ish) wouldn't actually be considered 'moderate' in Edinburgh for a double room. It would be pretty low. For example, the Radisson mentioned above will run about twice that.

Channings can be had for about £95-£100 for the standard rooms

The Apex International will have rooms just above your budget-- maybe £85-£90 ($135-$145-ish). It is in a terrific location.

To get under your budget, you'll probably need to check B&Bs

This summer, I was able to get the Holiday Inn Express-Royal Mile on Cowgate for $145/night through Priceline (non-bidding).

In addition to Priceline, you can try Booking.com and Venere.com for prices.

Bit modern for you I suppose but 10 Hill Place was quite a good location for us last year.

I wouldn't say 10 Hill Place is close to the "walking sites".

To the OP: you need to look into a B&B or Guest House (Scottish term of art for B&B with 6-10 guest rooms) to stay within that budget.

And $125 isn't mid-priced for any major city in the US.

It's only a suggestion Russ !

It was perfect location for us, less than a mile to golden mile. Easy when you can walk.
Guess it depends where you want to walk to.
Then no where is perfect
