I cannot rate this Hotel enough for a couples retreat! The hotel is really stylish and decorated beautifully as well as been super clean. The views from the room was amazing and the location could not be any better, it's literally right on the Royal Mile and is a stones throw away from Edinburgh Castle! The breakfast in the morning...

Stayed for one night here with my daughter. Very good location and central to most things. Air con in room was a must as it was very warm and sunny - wasn't expecting that in April . Room was clean and well presented , though you can see it needs a touch up on walls and around light switches. Bed... More

Staff friendly and helpful but room decor starting to look a bit tired. Suspect nightmare for domestic staff. A lot of different coloured fabrics including on the walls so not very functional. Reminded me of a Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen effort on Changing Rooms. Very unpleasant white/yellow sploge/ spray on the bed throw. Tried not to think about what it might.... More

Stayed in a standard room and it was still unreal. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, the view was beautiful & the bathroom was gorgeous! The television was a bit small but the room was just beautiful. Free movies & tea and coffee station. Slippers & robes were a treat also. Brilliant location on the Royal Mile with everything walking distance.... More

I have been here several times and they have done a lot in terms of upgrades for comfort and curb appeal. The first thing that you notice is how friendly the staff is. They make you feel so welcome and valued as a customer/guest. The front desk area is VERY clean and they even have guys outside in Kilts who... More

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.
