I stayed for four night by myself at Holyrood apartHOTEL in May 2016 I had a basic Studio and was THRILLED with my accommodations: a beautifully appointed, large, almost luxurious room with all mod cons and a nice, deep bathtub! HURRAH! Easy to access, staff super-nice and accommodating, too! Right in the middle of all of the action, I can't... More

We stayed at this hotel in June 2016. Our 2 bedroom apartment was clean, spacious, had comfortable beds and was located in a perfect central location. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very quiet with a very charming view from the 2 bedrooms and lounge area. There was a full kitchen with tea, coffee and... More

Washing machine, sink, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, crockery and cutlery, iron and board, spacious bathroom with a decent sized bath, all brand new (there maybe an older wing?), enough for you? Add to this a supermarket three minutes walk away stocked with everything you could ever want (we cooked breakfast and lived on delicious microwaved meals every evening, so much better... More

We liked the layout of this studio apartment and the clothes washing machine was a bonus. Everything was functional. The reception staff are very nice and helpful. The only negative was a very uncomfortable bed - gave me neck aches. We stayed 3 nights. The hallways are too warm and stuffy - no airconditioning so you have to leave the... More

Good location just off the Main Street that leads to the castle, clean rooms and helpful staff. Has facilities to leave a bag which was handy. Ideal hotel for a short break in Edinburgh. The reception has maps and guides. Whiski bar was a nice place to grab a great haggis meal with a fine local beer or whisky. This... More

This hotel is accessible through one of the many closes (alleyways) that lead out of the Royal Mile this one (Nether Bakehouse) takes you through a large open courtyard, past cottage style houses until you come across a modern and ugly building which turns out to be the hotel you are seeking. But do not let the exterior put you... More

I liked the hotel. I would give it 3 1/2 stars, my wife says 4. Good: Location- within walking distance of all the Edinbugh sites and lots of restaurants and shopping. There's also a Tesco that is open late with groceries, sandwiches, and such right around the corner from the hotel. Amenities- We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath room... More

We stayed overnight en route to the Highlands. Our room was spacious, with a really large bathroom and all conveniences including a fully-equipped kitchen. We could have stayed a few days comfortably. The building itself is undistinguished but the location is great - right around the corner from the Royal Mile and not too noisy. Its appeal is its convenience... More

We stayed here after 5 days in London. This is a great place to stay, especially if you've already been travelling for a while. Washer/dryer, fridge/stove, dishwasher, towel warmers. They even had milk in the fridge so we could make a cup of tea right away. I would definitely stay here again. Staff were helpful and friendly. Location is perfect... More

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.
