The Holyrood apartHotel is located in the heart of Edinburgh, it is so close to Edinburgh Castle like to another attraction! I am in love, I will come back in the future and I will use Holyrood apartHotel as my place to sleep!

First off, this place has an ideal location. It's just off the Royal Mile and just up the steps from a small Tesco market for groceries. The price was very reasonable for two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen with washer and dishwasher, supplied with cooking utensils and dishwear. What was quirky was how the apartment worked.... More

Just a few steps from the royal mile this new hotel has great amenities for mid trip laundry in your room, a breakfast basket you can order that lasted 2 of us for 3 days. Internet was not very good in the room but was ok. Comfortable beds and great bathroom.

Stayed in an apartment on the top floor of the Holyrood aparthotel. When entering the apartment there was a corridor with doors to two bathrooms, two bedrooms, one double, one twin and a door into the living room and kitchen area. The living room was comfortable with lounge chairs, table, tv and a view towards the Holyrood park and one... More

I would not stay here again! Maybe the studio apartments are nicer. At least they look way nicer in the photos with updated floors and décor. But our 2 bedroom apartment reminded me of my college days (someone said the hotel used to be college dorms) with the stained sofa that you were afraid to sit on and old carpets.... More

Great location just off the Royal Mile - within walking distance to Royal Academy, Castle, National Museum and Holyrood Palace - among other sites. Wonderful front desk staff called up to housekeeping to find a room ready before 3pm check-in time, despite it having been sold-out the previous night for the closing days of Fringe. (OK, it was only an... More

We stayed here 2 nights and attended the tattoo on the second night. The location was perfect, close in and an easy walk to up to the castle, all the market places and fun pubs and restaurants. The hotel was very clean with a good restaurant and lively bar. We would stay here again.

We visited Edinburgh for our wedding anniversary and wanted to stay close to old town, so as to make to most of the Fringe. We had booked accommodation in a different hotel, but when Aparthotel popped up on our search, offering parking facility as well, we decided to go for this instead - bad idea!

Situated about a 2 minute walk off the royal mile. Holyrood Palace is less than a 10 minute walk. This apartment had everything I needed, the bed was kingsize and very comfortable,a washing machine and drier was a real bonus. It was very clean and the staff very helpful. Relatively quiet although I did often hear party goers heading home... 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.
