Sometimes you want to pay a little more to get a really good hotel experience and this hotel was definitely worth it. The staff from the second we arrived till we left were consistently attentive and helpful. My son is autistic and they were especially good with him....and for me that makes this hotel extra special. The location is amazing,... More

We spent a night in Edinburgh before traveling further north to attend a graduation. Location: Centrally located on the Royal Mile. Easy to stroll around. Building: Very old building but nicely renovated. Has a very nice mix of old and new. Pleasant. Room: We booked a family room, which comes with two double beds and a single. Very spacious and...

Great central hotel,staff very helpful and polite. Room was very clean, some of the furniture looked a bit tired but the renovations are ongoing. One thing I would recommend is ask if your room is on Niddry street side as nightclub and Australian sports bar are at that side and it was very noisy until 3am. We didn't have breakfast... More

My wife and I stayed here from April 4th through April 11, 2015. Every member of staff was excellent from the moment we showed. This hotel is perfectly located at the center of the Royal Mile. Across the street is a 24 hour market, a Starbucks, a Tesco and Sainsbury 5 minutes around the corner, The Piemaker, Pinnies and Poppies,... 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.
