Neighborhood
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.

Dear Susan F, Thank you for your feedback and I am happy that you found our 'hotel, staff and food'. I am sorry to hear that your night sleep is being disturbed by the noise of the lifts and I fully appreciate you need to rest well for work. Since you are still staying with us, may I please ask you to contact myself or a member of our Reception team so we can accommodate you to a different room, further away from the lifts so we can ensure you enjoy the rest of your time with us? I am looking forward to hear from you shortly. Warmest regards, Laura Hofmans Guest Relations laura.hofmans@radissonblu.com
