The apartment I stayed at was on High Street, just a couple doors up from Cockburn St. Location could not be beat as far as proximity to buss station, and numerous Edinburgh attractions on and around the Royal Mile. The stairs to the apartment were a bit steep and required some concentration. But the apartment was clean and comfortable; and...

Stayed at Stay Edinburgh City Apartments end of May/beginning of June 2016 in a 2 bedroom apartment. We were a family of 3 generations: granny, mum and 5yr old child. Informed staff on booking that granny was in her 70's and wouldn't manage lots of stairs. They were v helpful and made sure we had a first floor apartment. The...

Great central location, first floor flat with lift just off Hunter Square. Large bedrooms, kitchen and shower room. Very friendly helpful staff who escort you to the apartment. Some noise in the early hours from late night revellers and traffic but not too much for us. Really enjoyed Edinburgh and we will be back! Many thanks to Stay City Edinburgh...

Apartment has a bedroom, bathroom, living area and kitchenette. Clean and everything's working, except heater temperature a little strange so we had either very hot or cold shower. Asked for and got a room on higher floor. There's a nice view of Royal Mile from bedroom and living room window, but then we had to lug luggage up and then...

The Stay City apartments in Edinburgh were just perfect for our needs. We were on a weekend visit to view the university. We had one 17 year old and one 7 year old in tow. The 2 bedroom apartment we booked was wonderful. New buildings a 5 minute taxi ride or 30 minute walk from The Cathedral. The decor was...

We booked our 6 days stay in Edinburgh with Stay Edinburgh City Apartments in March 2016. The office was an easy walk from the train station and the check in process a breeze. The individual was friendly, helpful, and great to work with. Our apartment was above the office which was right in the main square of Edinburgh on The...

Traveled with my family - a total of five adults. We needed two rooms and wanted to be right on The Royal Mile. That's hard to find while keeping the costs down. So, I took a chance and tried Stay Edinburgh. We all loved it. Here's why: It's on a wonderful part of the Royal Mile. We could listen to...

Excellent city break ....... although out of the 5 days we were there, it rained endlessly. Luckily there is lots to do, visit the illusion building, it's very entertaining ...... Edinburgh castle, Holyrood Palace and grounds, the Royal Yacht Brittania, the ghost walks and of course, the underground tours but be prepared, there are cobblestones everywhere so take practical footwear,...

I was astonished by all the high evaluation of this apartment hotel. My family did a study before our trip and we are full of confidence by the photos showed. However, the quality of the entire apartment we stayed was absolutely below standard and not matching to the photos. All I appreciated is the service and attitude of the staff....

It was stunning. 4 br, 3ba, large rooms. Wonderful kitchen & living room. Lots of windows over looking High St. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to come back. Absolutely wonderful. The three level stone stairway was very charming but somewhat difficult with luggage fr this 65 year old

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.
