What you will not get is a room like the ones advertised, we expected a room with a sofa, kitchenette & a separate bathroom/toilet, what we actually got was a double room with barely enough space to swing a cat, nowhere to store your luggage...More
Single glazing means you hear every sound. Broken sofa bed that was propped against wall. Spiral stone staircase with rope handrail and no lift meant only suitable for the mobile or fit. No plug in bathroom sink which also took five minutes to drain.

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.
