Visited Edinburgh for christmas market. Excellent room which was very comfortable. Great location and value for money. We would recommend to anyone for short break. Loads of pubs and dining in local area which was a lot cheaper than main Street. Easy 15 minute walk to city centre.

We decided to book this hotel because there was a promotion and special package for it, and we had never stayed in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh. From stepping through the door towards reception to leaving 2 days later our stay was fantastic. The room was well appointed, large, warm and clean with 2 settees and 2 televisions. The bathroom...

Fabulous hotel Friendly staff I had the pleasure of having my birthday at the hotel. I was given a lovely birthday greeting plus a drinks voucher, which was incredibly nice and generous. The location is excellent for all local attractions and history. Our room was a city plus and was extremely comfortable. Only criticism is that there were no drawers........ More

Hotel is perfectly located in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh. Loads of cute shops and quaint pubs around. Everything was within walking distance of the hotel including Princes Street, Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, as was every Scottish person we met! The interior of the hotel is decorated to a very high standard.... More

We've been several times before, and I always loved this hotel, but it's no longer value for money. Too many little things went wrong (e.g. blocked shower drain, meat served to my vegetarian daughter, noisy guests next door etc)

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.
