Fantastic place to stay! This is a place that wouldn't normally be in our price range but my partner surprised me for my 21st so he spent a lot more than I would ever expect. However, he says it was so worth the money with the look on my face and the service we received. Check In was quick and... More

Wonderful staff and location. Didn't have a room with a view, but quiet and huge!! Don't stray from breakfast menu (they didn't have sour cream in their kitchen) !? But that's my only complaint, everything else was excellent!! They even had a fan in my room !!!! Definitely give them a stay when you are in Edinburgh!!!!!

This hotel is lovely, doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it is lovely, the rooms are a good size and plenty of power points, both times we stopped on the first floor. Ideally situated in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh, below the castle and not far from the Royal mile, plenty of pubs opposite the hotel. Free wifi... More

Modern hotel with great location. Rooms were nice looking. Cute concept with giving guests a free rubber ducky to take traveling with you. Downsides: Bed was uncomfortable, windows didn't open much if you happened to get a non- air con room. Ask for an upgraded room if you need air con or don't want to hear the drunks at 2-3am... More

This hotel is situated in a great location to walk to all the central sights in Edinburgh. With an upgrade, and additional cost, we had a room with a view over to the stunning Edinburgh castle. The bathroom had a large corner shower that was a plus! Staff were courteous and helpful. The bar was busy and a great place... More

If you after fantastic reviews of the castle and right near the high street for the local haggis and whisky, then this is the perfect hotel for you. I went for a romantic weekend with my girlfriend and we were treated like VIPs from the first moment to the last.

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.
