Neighbourhood
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.

nice hotel great beds and showers, very informal. Be aware there is a big shared party square in front of hotel, but they rooms at the back a quiet. Staff informal but not too much. Breakfast options are great and extended hours.

If you want to sleep don't stay here on a Friday night. There is a bar associated with the hotel that plays music loud until 2:30 am. As we had to be up super early to leave for our tour it made the night miserable.More
