Stayed one night and had a fine stay. We had a large room on fifth floor with great views of Arthur's Seat.The two queen beds more than adequate for a family of four. The room was nice and tidy. The check in was efficient and friendly. The location is perfect, both for shopping and sightseeing as it is just next...

Stayed here for 5 nights on my stay to Edinburgh with my family. Upon check in, Emma, the front desk manager was so nice and immediately created a great check in experience along with checkout on the last day! The hotel rooms were very clean modern, and stocked daily with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. We had executive lounge access...

Located a few feet off the Royal Mile. Very modern room with American style perks. We were a party of 4 (parents and two teenagers) and the queen beds were more than adequate. It was nice being able to duck into the hotel for inter alia bathroom breaks when out walking the City. My only complaint was the absence of...

Service, room, executive lounge and breakfast were outstanding. The location in the center of it all is really what sets it apart. Close to sights, train station and airport bus. This is one of my favorite Hilton's.

Extremely poor service, heating in an executive room not working and the staff and Hilton honours never contacted us without me contacting them. I reported all problems on the evening of our stay and the staff were either overworked, understaffed or couldn't care less, I'm not sure which.

This is a quality hotel but expect a few snaggings for a month until all is well. There is no spa but there is a gym. The food is excellent and probably the best choice for breakfast. On the 4th floor, no noise from outside. Not too long a wait for the lifts either which was a problem before. large...

Stay here! Great location. Walking distance to train station, Royal Mile, great resturants, and the Castle. Great value for the money. Clean, large rooms, freindly staff. We did not eat at the resurant but heard that the food was great. We will be back.

This is the most comfortable hotel that we stayed in in Scotland. The public rooms and guest rooms are spacious and comfortable. The dining room and food -- especially the breakfasts were excellent. Guest services could have been more attentive. Several times it was quicker to catch the elevator and visit the front desk rather than wait for the phone...

This was a wonderful hotel in the perfect area of Edinburgh. Rooms were very large and clean, and the breakfast was great. My only complaint is that we booked this hotel expecting a swimming pool for our 2 year old niece to enjoy and when we arrived we were told they didn't have a pool or the spa that is...

Helpful staff on reception, who gave me all the information I needed about my stay. On arrival in the room, it was very cold and seemed as though the air conditioning wasn't working. A quick visit to reception saw them change the heat settings and eventually I got the room warmed up. The air conditioning unit was very quiet but...

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.
