My hubby and I have been visiting this hotel for years. We like it so much as the staff are always courteous and we even chose it to stay when we got married at Edinburgh Chambers three years ago. We were visiting this time to celebrate our three year Anniversary. We got a great deal and the hotel brought us...

Traveling for work and finding everything else booked for the weekend, I paid high season prices for the equivalent of a Holiday Inn. At check in the staff only tried to upsell us on everything. Two days without housekeeping service. Do NOT stay here if you can avoid it. Book early--somewhere else. Housekeeping staff were courteous enough but you don't...

Stayed one night on business here. Hotel is modern and smart and staff all very friendly. My room was bright and with a modern decor. I think I had the world's softest bed, I prefer a firmer mattress but to be fair I did sleep ok. The hotel is situated just off the royal mile and in a vibrant part...

The main attraction of this hotel is the location. Just a short walk from the castle and Princess Street. Our room was ok, the bed was comfortable with a choice of pillows. There is a nine metre indoor pool and a small but reasonably well equipped gym. Its a chain hotel so everything works but lacks real atmosphere. Our main...

From the minute we walked in we got a bad vibe from the place. The lobby was very chaotic and unwelcoming and there was nobody to help with our bags.

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.
