This hotel is well-located in the centre of Edinburgh, which is very convenient. Easy to locate via GPS, and has a multilevel car parking facility. However, it took us a while to locate its entrance as it is located at the side that requires us to drive all around the building. Once in, there are plenty of spaces. We parked...

Staff are very friendly. She suggest me to take better rooms (We already reserved rooms) and I felt she gave me good suggestion as the rooms are very nice with great city view. Only problem we have is Parking space which is behind the hotel and we have to drive a few blocks as it is one way lanes.

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.
