    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

    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

    I know someone previously asked this question but they received no answer so I thought I'd put it out there again. Are there washing machines in the apartments or in the building and if so how do they work? Coin operated? Locked laundry? Thank you.
