Our apartment at the Castle end of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh's old city was ideally located to access all of the wonderful attractions the city has to offer. Situated on the 3rd floor of an heritage building next to the Writer's Museum, you just have to accept the absence of a lift and the climb up a spiral staircase....

We stayed in the 3 bed apartment which was so close to Edinburgh castle - 1 minute walk! Location was amazing , not too noisy either. Apartment had everything we needed, living area a little small but we didn't spend too much time inside anyway. Darker blinds in the kids bedroom would have helped with time adjustment as we had...

We had two separate stays at Stay Edinburgh City Apts - two nights in a 2br apt and one night in a 1br apt, both located on the Royal Mile. Paul and Elizabeth were most helpful at check-in. The 2br was really bright, spacious, clean and well equipped. Located at the back of the apartment, the bedrooms were not affected...

Excellent location and the apartment very comfortable, you have all the Edinburgh locations walking and the Royal Mile is just a few steps from the apartment. The people who took charge of my check in was so friendly and kind. I will stay again with them in my next visit to Edinburgh.

The apartment I stayed at was on High Street, just a couple doors up from Cockburn St. Location could not be beat as far as proximity to buss station, and numerous Edinburgh attractions on and around the Royal Mile. The stairs to the apartment were a bit steep and required some concentration. But the apartment was clean and comfortable; and...

Stayed at Stay Edinburgh City Apartments end of May/beginning of June 2016 in a 2 bedroom apartment. We were a family of 3 generations: granny, mum and 5yr old child. Informed staff on booking that granny was in her 70's and wouldn't manage lots of stairs. They were v helpful and made sure we had a first floor apartment. The...

Great central location, first floor flat with lift just off Hunter Square. Large bedrooms, kitchen and shower room. Very friendly helpful staff who escort you to the apartment. Some noise in the early hours from late night revellers and traffic but not too much for us. Really enjoyed Edinburgh and we will be back! Many thanks to Stay City Edinburgh...

Apartment has a bedroom, bathroom, living area and kitchenette. Clean and everything's working, except heater temperature a little strange so we had either very hot or cold shower.

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.
