We were 5 colleagues staying at G&V Royal Mile for 3 days in November, and we all felt lucky that we had chosen this hotel. Located in the heart of Edinburgh on the corner of George IV Bridge and the historic Royal Mile, just minutes walk from Edinburgh Castle. It was a quiet area at Night. Lively at daytime. We...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in September. The hotel is ideally located; a block from everything, yet quiet. The room and the view were amazing. We had booked one of the deluxe rooms and when we checked in we were told the mini-bar was complimentary. I asked, because I had never experienced this. But true to what...

We used to visit here regularly and decided to go in to see the "new look". It took us 15 minutes to order our drinks despite sitting right beside the bar, and another 10 before they arrived.

We booked 2 double rooms for my husband and I and my mother in law for 2 nights in November. The hotel is very well located, right in the old city and near some lovely shops and the Castle. It's ideal for strolling around the old town. I had not expected the decor to be more Austin Powers than tartan...

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.
