My daughter and I stayed here for four nights in the middle of a four week tour of Europe. It was like a touch of home after so many hotel stays. It was wonderful to have room to stretch out and watch television, eat a few meals in instead of going out three times a day. The views of the... More

We had the pleasure of staying in this flat for 5 nights. First, the apartment was very large and the views of the castle were amazing but the best part was the attentive owners, Eric and Moira. Eric met up upon arrival and gave us great tips on places to eat and see. He provided every possible map, bus route,... More

Booked this apartment for my daughter's graduation. The location was perfect as just down the road is the famous Royal Mile, the graduation hall is within walking distance and behind are the numerous pubs and eateries. Well equipped apartment (#11), large reception room, 2 br, 1 bath and a well equipped kitchen. Will book again or recommend to friends.

I started my 5 1/2 week trip of Europe (which I'm still on as I type) staying at this apartment beside Edinburgh Castle and the South Wynd Stairs. It is centrally located in Old Town with lots of sights and hundreds of restaurants nearby, and was easy for my friends in Edinburgh to access on public transit. It was fantastic... More

We had read about this gem on the internet, and it fulfilled our every expectation! Our hosts, the Bowmans, went out of their way to communicate with us, help us with our route into the city, and with nearby parking. The welcome kit they provided was complete and very welcome -- all the staples one needs for a few days!... More

My very first trip to Edinburgh and I was lucky enough to stay at this wonderful apartment in Old Town! Arrived on a Tuesday morning and was greeted by the owner, Eric. The apartment is spacious, clean and full of AWESOME views of this beautiful city. This place is clean, centrally located, and comfortable. And a big thank you to... More

Unless you somehow score a room in Holyrood Palace, you won't find a better place to call home during your holiday in Edinburgh. I was lucky enough to stay at this large apartment again during a recent 6 day stay. The location is perfectly situated right in the shadow of the castle and above Grassmarket so it's close to many... More

My family of four very much enjoyed our stay. Eric welcomed us to the apartment. He provided lots of information on the city. The apartment was comfortable, and the location was ideal (right off the Royal Mile). We were pleased with our choice, and we would definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

The service and staff in the office were extremely friendly and helpful. Castle View apartments had stunning views of the castle and an ideal location, the lounge/kitchen area had plenty of space, stunning views and had everything you needed to make your staff stress free. Both bedrooms had plenty of room and again had everything you needed.

We stayed here for a long weekend, having stayed here on several previous occasions over the last 12 years. The apartment is directly adjacent to Edinburgh Castle so the view from the living room and both bedrooms is amazing! It is superbly located for exploring all of the sights of the city. The apartment itself was clean and comfortable with... 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.
