After booking the apartment months in advance for a work weekend away, our apartment got changed several times due to double bookings. When I tried to phone Ian Scott, he never cared and told me so himself. I think I sent around 10 emails, getting 3 responses in total, some of which were one word answers. We first booked through...

I booked an apartment big enough for 25 of us through stagedinburgh.com, and was a touch worried after reading some of the reviews on here about properties through this company - we were moved to a different location a week before we were due to arrive, but it was about 5 mins down the road to Queensferry St, and didn't...

Upon booking via HEN EDINBURGH some doubts were there and after calling Ian he accepted that it had been a bit of a mess but was being deep cleaned for our arrival! 22 hens arrived and the place was a disgrace! Rodent droppings in the bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms! Sockets hanging out, sockets broken, showers broken, no slip mats in... More

The Phoenix apartment was ideal for our stag party for 2 nights. The location couldn't have been better - we hardly had to walk more than 100 metres all weekend; close to the train station and city center too. The owners were very helpful in advance and on meeting us there. The apartment itself was quite basic but it was... More

Please don't make the same assumption as we did, booking 4* luxury accommodation from Edinburgh festival apartments for 22 hens. (Above the door it says Edinburgh city centre b&b) I don't understand how this business has been allowed to operate for so long! I would not describe this accommodation as being 1 star, iv stayed in better youth hostels in... 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.
