Very good experience, clean and good service. Recommended for every traveller visiting the city, very central and with the opportunity to have good meals and breakfast on site at the pub downstairs. Clean and newly refurbished!

What a fun boutique hotel! Great energy in the restaurant/bar and the room was well appointed and fresh. The hotel is located right in the middle of the Royal Mile with the castle just up the hill and the palace a short walk down the hill. A 5 minute walk over the bridge and you are in the new town.

I enjoyed the scottish breakfast. It was quite tasty, reasonable portion and price. Service was not stellar but acceptable. The venue was the real star. Beautiful and comfortable room with an easily accessed location.

Smack in the middle of the Royal Mile, very convenient for visiting the Castle and central historic sites and a few blocks from Waverly Train station (up a hill). Room was good sized, clean, modern design within older style building. Could hear live music from the bar on a Friday night (though two stories away), but seemed to be over... More

Right in the middle of the old city in a fun building. Staff was pleasant and helpful and the room/bathroom large with some lovely amenities. We were on the second floor, on the corner, and had a great view of the two main drags. Relatively quiet given that the location was right in the heart of things. There were some... More

Beautiful hotel, the rooms are amazing! The street is a little noisy, but the rooms were so comfortable and the bathroom is big and beautiful that it makes up for it. You are definitely in the heart of the mile. Would stay here again in a heart beat!

This bar/restaurant is within a converted bank and has been renovated really nicely to provide a great dining and drinking area right up near the Castle. We were only there for breakfast, but the menu was good, the staff really friendly, and the Scottish breakfast excellent and cooked to order, and at £8.99 each, much cheaper than the nearby hotels....

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.
