Beautiful spotless apt all the basics catered for slightly more out of the way to the apartments previously booked, as normally up by st Giles but still decent location. Two double on suite bedrooms with separate additional bathroom. Only criticism would be seating which could be more roomy. Few minor problems which were sorted immediately by the more than helpful...

when you pick up the keys at 375 Giles Street, you will be at an apartment block. The office is not here, so please look a couple of doors down to your right to Byrones Close, this is where the office is. A little confusing, but got there in the end. Pleasant staff on arrival at the office, you read...

We stayed here for my 40th with a group of friends and we occupied 2 apartments. The apartments are beautiful and have everything you need for your stay there. They are situated right in the Royal mile right outside of the cathedral. The views are spectacular. It's only a short walk up the hill to the castle and down the...

The St Giles apartments are exactly as they are advertised as. Luxury apartments. Absolutely spotless and so much cheaper than hotels. Check in staff very friendly and efficient. Would love to have stayed longer than the one night. We normally book through Edlets when we stay over in Edinburgh but we will be using St Giles Apartments from now on.

Check-in staff were very friendly and efficient and the welcome pack of tea, milk and water was great after our journey.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood 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-flavoured 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.
