Booked 8 Piershill sq for a visit to Edinburgh and it became "unavailable' on the day we flew into Edinburgh airport. Was then directed to an apartment in the seedy part of Edinburgh at 11.30 at night but couldn't get in due to keys not fitting the lock. Then had to find alternative accommodation after midnight!

We have been cancelled our booking after complete payment done. They say the company is closing down, but you can request for a booking right now. It seems they have had a better offer for our stay. Of course, we get most of our money back, but we have had to pay a bit more now that we'd have to... More

The location is absolutely amazing. Walk out the back door and you are on the royal mile. We attended the Military Tattoo and were back in our room less than five minutes later!! That said, the apartments themself were just so - so. In 8A the futon covers were stained and the overall appearance of the room was not that... More

We stayed in the penthouse at Mound Apartments as a group of friends for a weekend in late April. You couldn't hope for a better location, just five minutes walk from the station a back door on to the royal mile and minutes away from Edinburgh Castle, pubs, restaurants and shops. The apartment is clean, modern and extremely spacious but... More

The apartment is so good. We slept so well on a wonderful mattress. The rooms were excellent and have been re-furbished. The heating was excellent and kept us very warm on some cold December days. The kitchen had everything we needed. All the rooms had such interesting views with the front rooms overlooking Princes Street and looking on to the... More

We enjoyed two days in Edinburgh at the Mound apartments. What a perfect location, just around the corner from Royal Mile, 5 minutes to all shops. The apartment was great, just what we needed, all amenities including laundry facilities if needed. We were on 5th floor but there is a lift, fantastic views. The Wash cafe beneath the apartment does... More

We spent a whole month in the apartment on the 8th floor and were absolutely happy about it. At first sight it looked small, but then we moved the furniture a bit and suddenly it was spacious enough.

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.
