Booked here for two nights for a wedding and it had everything we wanted from it. My partner and I got room 502, which is in the top floor. Keep in mind the lift doesn't go up that high so you need to get it to the 4th floor and walk up stairs. I'm guessing if that is a problem...

The Grassmarket Hotel is a very trendy hotel, probably a little too trendy, with all metal furnishings and Dandy Comic wallpaper. Service was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Biddy Mulligans Pub is connected to the hotel and is handy for breakfast and obviously drinks. Location is in the old town which has a very nice atmosphere....

Very good location, close to bars, restaurants and Castle access. Room very clean and a comfortable size for two. We had a room looking out on the square and noise wasn't an issue. Everybody very friendly. Would go back again

My sister and I stayed here for a night. Firstly, our room was upgraded so we ended up in a huge 4 bed room with a lovely view of the Grassmarket. The bathroom was massive with two sinks and the tea/coffee/biscuit selection was amazing. Got a food discount for the pub next door so went there for tea. I absolutely...

Centrally located near the castle & a short walk from Waverly station. Tour bus stop outside . Plenty of bars & restaurants nearby. The Royal Mile & other key sites are also nearby. Rooms are certainly snug but a good sized bathroom . The absence of a lift to our room on the third floor was difficult as we had...

This was my third time staying in Edinburgh and this hotel did not disappoint. Characterful and with great service, it's a lovely place for a short stay. The room was fairly small so for a longer stay, it may not be the ideal choice but for a business trip or weekend stay, it's ideal. The room was clean, comfortable and...

The hotel was located very central and near everything. Very possible to walk to all the location. The room was really nice and modern. Good pubs in the area. The hop-on-hop-off buses had a stop outside the grassmarket square.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The newly refurbished Grassmarket Hotel is the perfect choice for work and play, and is centrally located only a 2 minute walk from the famous Royal Mile, 10 minute walk from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and moments from the best attractions Edinburgh has to offer including Edinburgh Castle and the historic Royal Mile. If you like to unwind after a hard day in quirky stylish surroundings, you won’t be disappointed. Our designs bring a distinctive and fresh flavour to the Edinburgh hotel market whilst incorporating traditional Scottish twists, with a few surprises along the way! The hotel has newly refurbished guestrooms, ranging from cosy (single room), comfy (standard twin/double) and comfy plus (triple or 4 singles) all complete with rainfall style showers. Can’t cope without your iPod? Pop it in our dock & kick back in sound proofed rooms. Each bedroom has a large flat screen plasma TV. Oh and if that wasn’t enough to keep you occupied, we also have free Wi-Fi. New to the city? All rooms have wall sized magnetic map that will point you in the right direction and air conditioning as standard. ... more   less
