This building is in an excellent location, very easy to walk to Princes St, the castle etc.. Stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding. Stayed in apartment 10 which is on the top floor, at the top of approx 4 flights of a spiral stone staircase. You need to be relatively fit to get up the stairs, especially... More

Close to the castle and main train station made this a perfect choice. Be prepared for some stairs in getting up the the Royal Mile but the views are wonderful and your FitBit stair counter will go into overdrive (lighthouse badge?!!) . This ancient yet internally modern apartment was expertly outfitted and matched exactly to our needs. We had laundry... More

What a gem of a place and in a prime location. The apartments are wonderful, clean, spacious with comfy beds. Staff were very accommodating & helpful. The price worked about much cheaper than a hotel for 4 adults. Will definitely stay here again.

We'd been travelling for a week so were so happy to get to Edinburgh and find there was a washing machine in the apartment. The customer service was outstanding. We were walked up to our apartment which was just a stone's throw from the castle. We even had a tv with hdmi ports which meant we could indulge in a... More

We arrived early into Edinburgh and were welcomed by staff that allowed us to store our luggage in the office until later in the morning when our room would be ready. Once we returned, we were again welcomed and provided a tour and overview of our apartment. With 2 teenage boys and my wife and I, the 2 bedroom apartment... More

Stay Edinburgh City were great! I had booked another apartment with another company for 20 people and the company had double booked us however Stay Edinburgh came to my rescue and with short notice was able to provide me with 4 fantastic apartments. They were totally understanding and to be honest it worked out for the best because the apartments... More

This was the most amazing location and we have seldom in many years of travelling come across such friendly and amenable staff. We had a huge amount of heavy luggage, but there was no hesitation by the greeting staff to carry it upstairs to our fabulous apartment where the view from the 4 front windows directly onto the Royal Mile...

The staff was easy to work with before and during the check in process. We had a one bedroom apartment not far from the Royal Mile. The apartment was very nice and fully furnished for us. With having the apartment, it made our time in Edinburgh very nice.

Location was fantastic. large room. Enjoyed having separate lounge and access to washing machine ( great when you have been travelling a while). Staff were helpful on check in. Great pubs and restaurants directly across street.

Con - window is not soundproof and very noisy even in midnight - wood floor needs some maintenance with sounds when walking or car passing through outside - no cleaning provided during the stay and we're required to clean the kitchen before we check out to avoid penalty charge. so additional housework. Pro - Spacious 2bedroom apt with all well-maintained... 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.
