We stayed here in July for one night on our way up to St. Andrew's. I chose the hotel because of its location on The Royal Mile since we only had 24 hours in Edinburgh. It was very modern, very comfortable and very clean. The staff was excellent: friendly and helpful. The concierge's recommendation for a quick, easy dinner for... More

I loved this hotel from the moment I walked into its foyer. It is modern, quirky and creative and a lovely place to go for a drink or (lucky me) to go on business. The rooms are stunning, immaculately furnished and with a wonderful walk-in shower too. We didn't have dinner here unfortunately but the panini lunch we had was... More

This was a rare night off for my husband and I, who were looking forward to rugby, dinner and drinks in Edinburgh and crucially a decent nights sleep as we have two young and restless children. The location is great and the staff are friendly however we were woken early in the morning by plumbing noise which appeared to come... More

Location: This hotel could not be situated within a better location - if you like to be amongst everything! You are right on the Golden Mile; a quick walk around the corner, in one direction, you have a Edinburgh Castle and in the opposite direction you have the shops. After exploring Edinburgh, the old part (which is where this hotel... More

It was a surprise trip for my boyfriend and it couldn't be better. Central location, room quiet with nice views and wonderful breakfast. The staff was attentive, polite and friendly specially Luis and Lucia who recommended us some places to visit. Nice hotel if you are looking for a relax time in Edinburgh.

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.
