Great central location for the old town and new town, with shops, restaurants and sightseeing on the door step. The apartment was clean and spacious with the owners adding thoughtful little touches that made staying in the apartment so easy.

The Atholl Brae Royal Mile is the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. It is just off the Royal Mile and within walking distance of all the main areas in the Old Town you would want to visit. The hosts were very helpful and punctual. Most importantly, the apartment was very clean and there was ample space for three travelers...

Everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a good range of cooking equipment if you want to self-cater. Five minutes walk from Waverley Station and just off the Royal Mile. Plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants nearby, but just far enough from the Main Street to be quiet even at busy times. Owners' communication is exceptionally good, and they...

Great place. Great location a stones throw from the royal mile which serves as a brilliant base for your Edinburgh exploration. Equally close to Waverely station too so it doesn't take long to settle yourself in. The owner Liz is very friendly and only too happy to help you.We would stay again with our three young kids.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
