    The location was great, close to everything you'd want to see in Edinburgh. Great deals in the pub downstairs as well. The beds were extremely squeaky whenever anyone moved - had a very hard time sleeping with all the noise. The breakfast was okay -...More

    Malone's is in a fantastic location in Edinburgh's old town. The promotions in the pub for guests are great, and can make the stay extra fun. Beds are fine, but rooms are a bit stinky if the window is left closed. Kitchen and breakfast are...More

    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
