    Good value hotel. Set in central location with views of castle. Well appointed compact room with full bathtub and separate shower. Loved fluffy towels. Did upgrade for nominal fee to have robes, espresso and fridge.

    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
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
