Stayed here last weekend on a short break for a birthday. Hotel was brilliant, room was spacious and well equipped and clean. We had a top floor room which gave us a view of the Christmas markets which too were fabulous. Definitely recommend!! Only comment would be, hotel was obviously busy with it being close to Christmas but seemed to...

This hotel is very convenient for the station, old town, Princess Street, the Castle and the Royal Mile. The hotel itself has just undergone refurbishment and was experiencing some difficulty with the automatic front doors, however, they were expecting a team to fix this problem quickly. There was still some work going on but it was unobtrusive and carried out...

We had a view of the firth and Arthur's Seat. Breakfast was plentiful and restaurant staff very attentive. Will be back as hotel is only five minutes from train...

Stayed for a wedding anniversary celebration. Lovely hotel, comfy rooms and good service. Excellent location to see as much of Edinburgh as possible and only 45 mins on the tram from airport. Got our rooms on a sale for £39 per night so really good value - thank you, had a great time

Amazing location, very good service but the rooms did not have complimentary water (we were told they do provide but only for member).. Rooms did not have mini bars/fridges which is very weird for a 5 star hotel. I will definitely come if the guests were provided fridges!

I was in Edinburgh for 3 nights and only the first night was spent at the Carlton. The hotel was excellently located and close to all amenities. I did use the executive lounge and was amazed when it was only me and another couple who used it, I had been in Newcastle the night before and the lounge there was...

An overnight business stay in the Edinburgh carlton was extremely pleasant. The staff were excellent and the food and accommodation were first class. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel as a first class experience.

I stayed here with my wife for one night and only wish we would have planned for more time. The location is excellent situated right along the Royal Mile district and a short walk away from the castles. The hotel is amazing since there recent renovations. Rooms are upgraded and clean. The Executive Lounge serves a simple but tasteful breakfast....

Hands down the best hotel we stayed in the United Kingdom. The room was beautiful, immaculate and comfortable. They did upgrade us when we got there and we had a suite overlooking the Royal Mile. The service was awesome. In the Executive Lounge the staff there was so great. I wish I could remember the woman's name. She was awesome....

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.
