We recently stayed at one of the St Giles apartments on Johnston Terrace. The position was fantastic (just below the stadium) and was within easy walking distance to all of the attractions and great restaurants. The apartment was well appointed and very clean, with a spacious and modern living area. I would definitely recommend staying here (apartment 2). It was... More

Modern, clean and well-appointed condo in heart of Royal Mile. Included a washer/dryer combo in unit and bathroom was large with tub and shower. Location could not have been better. We were within walking distance to Edinburgh Castle as well as many restaurants and shops. However, the walking tours stopped under our window EVERY night and regaled their groups with... More

The location was perfect - right in the middle of Edinburgh opposite St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile. The apartments were not easy to find at first and were not situated close to Reception. Four of us stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment with one bathroom. When we first went in the heating was turned up high and it was... More

Dear Miranda, while we appreciate feedback when it is fair and constructive we are very surprised by many of your comments. Our office is located right opposite St Giles Cathedral, roughly twenty meters away from the Cathedral itself, and only two minutes’ walk from our Old Fishmarket Close apartments. We do have the heating set on a timer because Scotland... More

23/06/2015 to 27/06/2015 Excellent accommodation directly opposite the cathedral. Easy access to most of the main tourist attractions. Despite the central location, the layout of the apartments meant we were not disturbed by noise from the city centre. Staff very helpful and responsive to issues.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood 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-flavored 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.
