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.

We stayed for a couple of nights and the hotel is really quite conveniently located in the Old Town area. The railway station was a five minutes walk from the hotel. Also most of the attractions were close by. The room and amenities were quite good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the holiday inn, was better than we thought, rooms very clean and quite large, no noise from street. Breakfast was great although bacon was steamed not grilled but that’s minor, staff were excellent assisted with all our enquires.

Recently we spent two nights here. The place is clean with efficiently organized space. The staff was very pleasant which is a big plus. The breakfast is varied and plentiful. But it is the location in old town that is really great.There are many good pubs and restaurants
