Location couldn't be better I believe. Walking distance from everything, loads of bars and restaurants around, and gift shops. Really well located. The rooms are nice and big enough for a city hotel, bathroom lovely as well. The service overall wasn't great, especially the bar staff, they weren't the friendliest or most helpful. Could've caught them in bad days, I...

The Hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard. Elegant reception area. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Marco Pierre White Restaurant was spot on. We sampled the Chicken Le Forestiere, the...

We were very pleased to find that the location of the hotel was so good. Very near to Waverley Station, though a very steep climb up the Scotsman steps, right next to the Royal Mile and only 5 mins to Princes St. It has been newly refurbished and is bright and light for an old building. Our room was quiet,...

While the hotel is modern in appearance, and we did receive a room upgrade, our bathroom in the suite had issues. Two days in a row there was poop in the toilet floating that was not from us, and the water was constantly yellow (urine). I think the sewage water from another room must've been backing into our toilet. It...

Very enjoyable stay at the Hilton. Ideally situated for a city break. Loads to do within walking distance and minutes walk from railway station. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Rooms were a very good standard. Ideal for a family stay.

Walking distance from train station, lovely rooms (although not ready till after 4pm so had to wait in bar), near to restaurants and shops. Staff friendly and helpful especially with our 5 year old daughter who they made a fuss of! Executive lounge small but again attentive staff. Would stay again!

Newly refurbished, lovely bar and Exec lounge and comfortable rooms. Gym is good with new machines. Excellent central location. Food could be better but in this location there are so many options you don't need to eat in. Recommended.

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.
