Stayed here 3 nights during the Edinburgh Fringe festival. Everything working, our room (I think we were in 1) was gorgeous and the bed was very comfortable. Despite being at ground-zero for Fringe/Royal Mile activities, we slept like babies, noise was never an issue. We slept too well in fact; slept in the last day and nearly missed our train... More

We stayed in Room 2 recently for the Festival. This is the 3rd time that we've stayed here so we must like it and Room 2 is not too tiring on the legs as there is no lift. However...... There are a few design faults in the beautifull looking room and although it looks v good it really isn't too... More

Rather than being an actual boutique “hotel”, the Inn on the Mile comes across as being a stairwell of stylish, serviced, private apartments attached to a comfortable, spacious ground floor bar. Right on the corner of Nicolson Street (the North Bridge) and the High Street (the Royal Mile), this is pretty much centre Old Town Edinburgh, walk anywhere. Rooms, bar,... More

This is an old bank building turned into a small boutique hotel. The location is great; service very good; food in restaurant good. Walking up to the top floor would be a real challenge if you are disabled in any way. We did have help when checking in, but not when leaving. Traveling light would be recommended here.

Having had one of the most incredible stays in a hotel/inn last year, we returned this year in hope of repeating it. The hotel is perfectly located, with a stunning bar area offering live music, and beautifully appointed communal hallways. However, this was where our experiences stopped being equal. Last year, we had a large, beautiful room with a brand... More

Recently stayed on the Inn on The Mile for a short break. Food was superb. Staff could have been friendlier. Rooms are sleek and modern with the best showers ever. Beware of the stairs though as there is no lift. Coming back to stay in a couple of weeks.
