The hotel staff are terrific- pleasant and friendly. The apartment is very nicely done; modern with a lovely bathroom and fantastic Cowshed toiletries. Very nice to have a kitchenette and washer-dryer. We went for a family vacation and to see the Tattoo; the city was packed due to the Fringe Festival. So, there were a lot of late night people...

Maybe the location wouldn't be the best one we had chosen (apartments are strictly at city center, Royal Mile, and we prefer other less touristic locations more quiet and authentic, but if you look for being on city center, it won't disappoint you). However, apartments are really beautiful furnished, completely new, big and with stunning comfortable beds.

Thanks for the review, if you prefer a quieter place perhaps you could have a look at our apartments called Merchiston Residence, they are in Morningside and have all the creature comforts of Old Town Chambers, but are a little out of town. We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay and our beds! Plesae just let us know... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2015. We took apartment 18/Town House which has to one of the most incredible places we've ever stayed at.

The staff was so friendly and welcoming, allowing us to check in as soon as the room was cleaned. Our beautiful accommodation was multi-level and very spacious for three people. As a bonus, the bathrooms included deliciously scented hair products and soaps. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Visited as a treat with our pregnant daughter. Was very modern and to a high specification. Location was second to none, accessible to both the old and new towns but surprisingly secluded. Had all the mod cons you could wish for (as well as extensive instructions). The only thing that would improve it is a vending machine for late night... More

I can't really give this hotel other than an Excellent rating. The stay started off with me getting a shock when I arrived and discovered that when I'd changed my booking from a studio apartment to a one-bedroom apartment, they'd also changed the date!

We could not have been more thrilled with the accommodations or the location. Located right by St Giles, it gave easy access to everything, especially with the use of the "Close" passages. The kitchenette was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. When in Edinburgh we would stay here again without hesitation.

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.
