We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment on Advocates Close, about 10 steps off the Royal Mile opposite St. Giles' Cathedral. It was an amazing location right in the middle of everything. It's less than a 10 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and about a 20 minute walk to the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the other end. The apartment was much... More

Loved it. Possibly the best place i've stayed for a city break. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a bigger apartment than the one i originally booked. We stayed in a 3 bed apartment overlooking St Giles Cathedral. Staff at check in were wonderfully helpful. the arrangement is that you go to the office to check in and... More

This was a great way to stay right in the city and have lots of room and comfort. The check in office is down a close, but that just made it all the more interesting. The staff was very nice and helpful and the apartment was very nearby in Old Fishmarket Close. Ya, it can be a bit hard to... More

Situated right opposite St Giles Cathedral, it could not have occupied a more central location on Royal Mile. Parking can be a bit of a hassle if you are driving but loading and unloading are not a problem right in front of the entrance. You have to park either at the Blackfriars Street Carpark, which is closer but more expensive,... More

If you want an apartment right next to all of the action on the best part of Edinburgh, then look no further than St Giles Apartments. I could see St Giles Cathedral from my window, the Heart of Midlothian. Facilities are modern and extremely comfortable. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Outside street noises minimised by good sound... More

It was hard finding the place to pick up the keys. It was hidden down an alleyway. After picking up the keys, we went to the Johnston apartment. Lots of stairs from the road to the first floor flat and once you entered the hallway, it was downright scary since there was very, very little light. But once you got... More

I've stayed in Edinburgh many times over the years for both work and family breaks, and by far the best ones were here, at the St Giles apartments, literally across the road from St Giles cathedral and a short walk from the castle. The apartments are clean, modern and well managed and all the one I stayed in had WiFi... 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.
