It is a great pleasure for me to write about St Giles Apartments ! This has not been my first time in Edinburgh , as I deeply love this beautiful town, so it happens that I can make comparison between different places, all of which I have already reviewed during the past years.

We stayed here in late July during the height of the Scottish "summer". Needless to say we welcomed the heating system in the apartment! The apartment came just as advertised. The location, off the Grassmarket, was fantastic and was secluded due to it being in a close off the main street. The only noise we heard was from the restaurant... 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.

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.
