Spent two nights at the apartment on the Royal Mile near Edinburgh castle. Convenient location just a stones throw from the Ensign Ewart pub. This was an old world, massive four bedroom, three bath unit on the third floor. If not willing to climb the four flights of spiral steps this is not for you. The unit was upgraded with...

Clean and well appointed. The three flights of spiral stairs were a bit of a challenge but we needed the exercise. Excellent location right on the Royal mile, down side was we were using the front room also for sleeping and was a little noisy at night - could do with double glazing

The location of these apartments is superb..a stone throw away from Edinburgh Castle and dropped right deep into the Royal Mile esplanade of historic buildings and touristy attractions. So lots to see, eat and drink right at the foot of your doorstep. The management agency couldn't be more helpful providing as much information as possible prior to our stay even...

Stayed in a spacious apartment across the way from Greyfriars. What I enjoyed most was how much the apartment felt like home, even on holiday! The apartment included a full kitchen and washer/dryer combo, which was great as we had been on holiday for over a week and desperately needed to do laundry when we arrived to Scotland. Everything was...

Everything was very good: location in the centre of old town, spacious rooms, cleanliness, kitchen appliances. Staff was amasingly helpful, they even washed our clothes as a complimentary service. We are very thankful to the staff and highly recommend these apartments!

Location is just perfect. 5 minutes from the castle, 5 minutes from the train station. The walls are nice thick as they are in older houses, wished I could say the same about the windows, the city noice finds it way in. And as mentioned in other reviews, the stair is not in the best shape. But if you walk...

We arrived slightly earlier than we had said but this was not an issue. We were checked in at their office, which is in the Crest of Edinburgh tourist shop and given the keys. Our apartment entrance was right next door and were given one of the penthouse apartments. The views were great looking out over Edinburgh and the whole...

We had a friendly welcome to a very nicely styled and spacious apartment in the heart of Edinburgh. Being a few floors up is great for noise reduction but you need to be mobile to climb the worn stone steps. We couldn't have chosen better and will return.

I have nothing bad to say about the apartment or the service we received from Stay Edinburgh City Apartments staff, From the moment I booked with them they were in touch to confirm the booking and to make sure i knew how to find them (Which is very easy as its up the hill from the bus station) they stayed...

Great apartment in central Edinburgh. Right on the doorstep to lots of bars and restaurants. 5-10 minutes walk from Princes Street for shopping. Can get slightly loud at nighttime with people leaving the bars but this is only a minor issue as the apartment I stayed in had good, thick windows.

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.
