Stayed at the hotel last night and from the very beginning Vincent on reception was kind, courteous and extremely helpful. The room itself was beautiful with an excellent view down South Bridge, we also had complimentary prosseco and chocolate strawberries. The bathroom was ultra modern and very nicely done. This is one of the nicest places I've stayed in a...

We stayed here last month during the festive season and I couldn't be happier about it. The hotel was exceptional, very clean, tidy and modern with everything you need. The breakfast was lovely and typically Scottish with fantastic staff that were very helpful. Location, can't beat it. In the centre of old town on the Royal Mile, a perfect location...

Have stayed at the inn on the mile a few times now and love it's convenient location. It is a small hotel with only 9 very well appointed rooms and a lovely relaxed, casual bar. Much nicer than the usual chain hotels.

Stayed here on a short visit and were absolutely delighted with this hotel. Staff are excellent, welcoming and attentive but not intrusive, with lots of attention to detail. Our rooms, No 1 on the first floor and No4 on the second floor, were warm, spotlessly clean, with huge, very comfortable beds and good linen. There were excellent finishing touches too,...

From the moment we entered, we were greeted by extremely friendly staff to help with check in as well as our baggage and getting us settled in.

Absolutely top drawer from start to finish. Arrived to an enthusiastic and informative welcome from Vincent despite it being quite busy in the bar. The room was clean, spacious and lovely little extra touches like the absolutely enormous bed! Brilliant location right off the Royal Mile, great service and would definitely stay here again but for longer next time 😊

Great location, however it can be noisy as the Royal Mile seems to attract party animals all night!

The downside was our room was on the top floor and there were...

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.
