This a small hotel, only 9 rooms, but it was very nice. Right on the Royal Mile. The design is modern, but with the old world flavor to it. Nicely done. The rooms are very modern, and we were very happy that they actually have air conditioning in the guest rooms. There is a restaurant/bar/pub on the ground floor, and... More

The Inn on the Mile is top notch. The staff was friendly, helpful and determined to make the guests have a wonderful experience. The rooms and overall decor stylishly combines old and new. The food, drinks and location can't be beat.

A lovely hotel with wonderful staff; a stunning building that couldn't be any more central. I staggered off the sleeper train at Waverley and dragged my bag to the Royal Mile, arriving right outside the hotel. All of the sights of the old town are within a 5-minute walk. The room I stayed in (room 2, first floor, looking out... More

I only give it 4 because the rooms are so small. Nice big beds, but it is really tight getting around. Other than that, great staff and location- right on the mile. It can be noisy at night- you are right on the mile, so bring your ear plugs. And it is right above a pub, which is great or... More

We had a room on the 2nd floor. The bed and furnishings were very nice, new, and comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious.

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.
