Positive: Clean large room. Cab ride from waverly station is about 5£. Hotel is on royal mile, BUT its still a good 20 min walk uphill to castle and 15 min walk to waverly station Negative: Got into argument with lady at reception about lack of ANY free wifi at the hotel. Unfortunately I didn't get her name but she...

This was the second time that we have stayed here, and both times we booked a 1-bedroom studio apartment, but were upgraded to a 2-bed 2-bathroom apartment. The apartment has everything you could want for a few nights stay (or longer - it was actually bigger than the 2-bed flat we live in, and better equipped!). On arrival there is...

I had an excellent time staying here when I visited Scotland. I went there with my family and my brothers family. We stayed in the two bedroom apt. It was very clean and comfortable. I had visited there during the Xmas hols and the weather was very cold but the apartment heaters ensured that I was warm when indoors. The...

I had a great time staying at Holyrood with my mum, sister, brother in law nephew. The apartment is about 10 minute walk from Waverly train station. Taxi will cost about 3-5 pounds depending on how many passengers and baggage you have. As soon as we arrived we were very happy with our 2 bed apt - extremely clean, bright,...

Had an absolutely lovely stay here when visiting Edinburgh with my Mom and boyfriend - having two bedrooms/bathroom with a common living room and kitchen was amazing as we had our own space but were easily able to come together and hang out as well. We were tired enough from wandering around the city after the second day we actually...

I brought my niece and nephew here when they were on a visit from the U.S., and it was a perfect choice. For an excellent price, we had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a big living room, a dining room and a kitchen, so we could stay together while having lots of privacy when we wanted. The place was thoroughly modern...

Excellent position, great value, friendly, attentive staff, very few restrictions. Royal Mile 1 minute away, Holyrood Park 2 minutes, Scottish parliament 1 minute and so many others (Museum 5 minutes).

Stayed here for a week with the family. The location at the bottom of the royal mile was perfect. Secure car park with small Tesco beside. The beds are comfortable, facilities good quality (4 star quality). Price extremely good value. Can not recommend highly enough

Just returned from a short stay at these apartments. I travelled with my two sons and nephew (age range from 8 - 15) so the two twin roomed apartment was ideal.

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.
