We stayed three nights at the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton. The hotel is completely updated in a stylish modern design. We had an Executive King room that was very large, with a sofa and desk in the sitting area. The executive lounge is not large, but adequate and well appointed. A good, typical buffet breakfast was available in the lounge. We...

Decided to stay here as it is very close to the market and also my partners birthday in December so two birds one stone. I was really looking forward to being a guest at this hotel as it has recently been refurbished and is new in the Hilton properties. Unfortunately it was not as good as some of the other...

What a lovely venue for Afternoon Tea. I have not been in this hotel since it has been refurbished. What a transformation! The hotel is beautifully decorated and spotless! The staff were very friendly and attentive. Our Afternoon Tea was delicious. We had a glass of champagne and two pots of coffee, sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and a...

Visited the hotel yesterday for afternoon tea. Really lovely hotel which I think has been recently refurbished. The afternoon tea was served in the bar which was very cosy and comfortable. The staff were excellent, attentive but not intrusive. It was served promptly but was obviously freshly made, lovely warm scones and delicious cakes. The sandwiches were very tasty, and...

Enjoyable stay but nothing special. vey expensive bar is the main communal area and like all hotel chains, the bacon in an otherwise excellent breakfast was indescribably badly-cooked, Do hotels run courses in how...

The Hilton Carlton is a recently refurbished hotel, within a minutes walk to the Royal Mile and a two minute walk to Princes Street. All rooms are very modern as is the hotel in general. Very close to all Edinburgh has to offer and a short walk to Waverley train station.

I used to like this hotel when it was the Carlton - mainly for the staff, who are so friendly and 'on it' - they really try to understand your needs, and never forget a customer. Now that the Hilton have taken over, the staff are the same but the building has been redecorated throughout in clean, contemporary creams, white...

Working in travel myself i often like to take advantage of the special rates we can access and the Hilton has never let me down where ever I have booked.

I stay in hotels on a weekly basis for 3 or 4 nights; I don't tend to find much difference in terms of hotel quality but I notice a drastic difference in the quality of their staff - and this is the difference between a great and a terrible stay. The Hilton Carlton is very new and as a result...

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.
