Booked for a trip with friends although the apartments were equally superb for families too. The location couldn't have been better. 10 mins walk from station although 96 steep steps to the reception so be prepared to climb to get there! The apartment was perfect! And had fab cowshed toiletries to use.The shower was lovely and there were fluffy white... More

I statyed in Apartment 35. The Hotel is a collection of buildings and apartments located in Closes Advocates and Roxburgh. Challenging to find (and they know it) so they make the directions as clear as possible - once you find it, you get it! Check in was awesome - via email they send you a code. This 4 digit code...

We have traveled to several countries in Europe. It is always difficult to find lodging with a family of 6 and not have to book two rooms. This place was amazing.

We had a fabulous three night stay at the Old Town Chambers in Apartment 16. It is a spacious unit with a balcony looking over Princes Gardens, Waverly train station, and New Town.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and the location was right on the main street of Old Town Edinburgh. It was walking distance to Edinburgh Castle and to many restaurants.

The location couldn't be better. We thought our cab driver made a mistake when he dropped us in the heart of the Royal Mile. The structure was completely gutted to the bare walls and built basically from scratch just a year ago, so it's a new hotel surrounded by centuries of history. Our "apartment" was efficiently laid out, with a... 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.
