The location of this property is perfect - just off the Royal Mile and in a quiet close. The two room apartment we took was adequate and neat. The best part of this hotel is the fact is that it is walking distance from everything in old town. Use this place if you will be out of the hotel a... More

My apologies to this guest for the perceived attitude of our reception team - we generally have a well trained and well motivated staff so I at a loss to understand what happened on this occasion but will address it with the team directly. I am pleased to confirm that the lift issue was quickly rectified. Leon Kiteley General Manager More

I could not have been more pleased. What a surprise when I realized that instead of a small hotel room, I was getting a 2 bedroom apartment for the 3 of us! We had 2 bathrooms, kitchen living and dining room and even laundry room in the unit. It was beautifully decorated, quiet and yet very well located...just steps away... More

We arrived at 1.45, knowing check in wasn't until 2 but seeing if we could be lucky only to be told our room was "still dirty" (not sure that's the best choice of language), no offer to leave bags so we carried them round the corner to have lunch. Aware we were early but have often had better customer service... More

My thanks to this guest for their largely positive review and I am sorry to read that not every aspect of the stay lived up to our usual high standard. We are more than happy to look after luggage until a room is ready, and whilst an additional amount of pre-authorisation is standard throughout the industry, this could certainly have... More

I stayed here with my husband and daughter so needed two bedrooms, this can work out expensive for two nights and two rooms in a hotel so we chose this aparthotel, it was cheaper here for two nights than any hotel. The service was very good. It was very clean and had everything you needed. It was nice that all... More

A wonderful review for the Holyrood Aparthotel and my sincerest thanks to this guest for taking the time to share their positive experience with TripAdvisor. I would like to reiterate this guests point that car parking is limited and to guarantee a space we would ask all guests to reserve one directly with our reception team.

Located close to the bottom of the Royal Mile (between the Royal Mile and Holyrood Road) this is really handy for Arthur's Seat, Palace of Holyrood and the Parliament. Apartments are well-appointed and spacious with welcoming touches.

The service varied wildly but overall it was a nice quiet location not too far from the train station. The inside of the apartment was a bit dated and we had a few minor issues but overall clean and roomy. Suited 2 couples very well over the long weekend.

My thanks for such a positive review but I was sorry to learn that service varied greatly - there can be no excuse for a lack of consistency in service, and I will address this with the departmental heads. Leon Kiteley General Manager More

Arrived 2 May- quite late. Parking is limited and the local overnight rate (only 5 mins away) is £15. Apartment was clean, well presented and well appointed. It looks a little tired around the edges but if you ignore that it is a cracking location close to town centre. The only other point to note is its quite noisy outside... More

Although I was grateful to read an overall positive review from this traveller, I was surprised to hear our location described as noisy - we are fortunate to be in one of the quietest city centre locations in Edinburgh, and this is not a complaint we hear often. Leon Kiteley General Manager More

The Aparthotel just on the outskirts of the Park and only ten minutes from Centre. The Apartments are very well equipped and serviced well. The reception staff are very helpful and supportive. Tesco Express is only 100 yards away for food and drink. The only complaint was that the water pump under the sink was extremely noisy when a tap... More

We couldn't have chosen better.The Holyrood Aparthotel was superb. We rented an apartment which was spotlessly, clean, a breakfast hamper was available for free and was packed with everything you would associate with a good breakfast. The kitchen was fully equipped from a toaster to a dishwasher, all white goods worked well and would sustain anyone staying longer than a... 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.
