The room was very clean with both a walk in shower and bath in the bathroom. The room was comfortable with a sofa which was very welcoming after a busy day sightseeing. We didn't eat at the hotel but it all looked lovely. There are lots of bars and places to eat very close to the hotel. Would certainly recommend...

The location was perfect - right smack in the middle of Grassmarket and only a few meters (slope) from Edinburgh Castle. A lot of pubs and nice breakfast places nearby giving us multiple dining options. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and check-in/check-out was quick. Spacious and clean bathrooms (the Apex duck was cute, I took it home) with large...

Excellent location. Check in was smooth and friendly. Room was comfortable and shower, particularly fabulous being big and with good control of temperature. The room was refreshed very well too. All staff were very polite.

Stayed on the weekend of 18th Feb with my partner. Were both really happy with the hotel - well designed and spacious rooms. Stayed in the comfort plus room and paid an extra £25 per night for a castle view room (perhaps a bit overpriced as we had already paid for upgraded room) but view was great. Lovely bathroom with...

Nice Elemis toiletries and walk in shower. Free wifi. Booked DBB package. Really enjoyed dinner and good service. Breakfast had good choice of self service items but coffee and cooked order took ages to come. Think...

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in Feb. The good points are that the location is spot on, check in was easy and the hotel is quite easy on the eye when you walk in (bar, reception, hallways are all very nice). There are some bad points though. The room was like a sauna, the shower was absolutely appalling...

We upgraded for small fee which gave us bath robes, coffee machine and extra toiletries . Plenty of restaurants and shops close to the Hotel, Rooms were nice size ( bath...

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.
