    The Highland Inn is an old and quaint hotel off of North Highland. It's clear the inn has been here for a long time while the area around it has turned into a major area for boutique shopping, dining and eclectic art with Ponce de Leon and the Little Five Points area nearby.

    The inn itself is pretty clean for such an old property. The room I saw was a double and had a sort of unusual set up with a wall separating the two beds. A tv was placed sort of randomly on a mini fridge in the room and there is a sink in the room area. The bathroom can be reached from either side of the room but it's incredibly small -- think a closet. Also, the bathroom shower was pretty old, not dirty just really old. There's a breakfast room and the hotel staff here was really nice. It's definitely a unique spot to stay and could be a good option for this looking to have a less traditional hotel stay.

    This is a quaint inn in the heart of Virginia-Highland. The place was built in the 1920s and while the original architecture is beautiful, the place smells a little old and the layout is kind of strange. However, all the rooms have flat-screen TVs, blow-dryers, minifridges and microwaves. The bathroom was tiny but the bedroom had a mirror and sink too that I promise you will want to take advantage of. You can grab a continental breakfast in the room off the lobby (and check out signed pics of some of the musical acts that have stayed there) but there’s not an on-site restaurant or lounge. VaHi has so many quirky dining options and is so walkable that it’s really not a problem. If you want to stay in a less-touristy part of the city (but close to where all the really good boutique shopping and dining is) the Highland Inn is a great option.

    Make no mistake, this is a very old hotel that comes with very few modern amenities. But the thing is, the Highland Inn has done a lot to turn the old building into something really neat and unique in Atlanta, boasting that they’re the only ‘European boutique hotel’ in the city. It’s a neat novelty, and very fun choice if you’re looking to try something a little different.

    When you enter the hotel, you’re greeted by a classic style front desk, with room keys on chains sitting in boxes. The building and the rooms are old, but maintained well enough and with a lot of charm. The biggest problem is that the room was incredibly small – even two people might feel a little cramped in a room at the Highland Inn.

    Something I’m not so sure about are the air conditioner units – they appeared to be small window units in the rooms. I visited during the fall, and the temperature was very mild and nice; but I’m thinking that during a hot summer it might be a real problem.

    A neat perk is the built in cafe, which seems to be a popular spot even for people who are not staying at the hotel. There’s also a free breakfast, and free wifi. I very much enjoyed my visit.

    From the outside of The Highland Inn I was very excited to see what was in store. The classic 1920’s design is charming from the outside and I was expecting the fun and kitschy vibe that the surrounding Virginia-Highlands area typically has to offer. The staff here is friendly, and one of my favorite features is that they still use actual keys for the guest rooms. This allows the imagination freely roam back in time a bit with the surroundings. Inside the Inn the rooms are less than satisfactory. The furniture is dated and doesn’t match the time period of the inn, the bathrooms are small and seem a little dirty, and the carpets are stained. With a little love this could be transformed into a great old world destination. Currently, the ballroom and spa are under separate ownership. The VA-HI area is a lot of fun and has easy access to downtown.
