Situated directly on Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile, the 74 luxurious apartments at Cheval Old Town Chambers put you right in the centre of the city’s historic Old Town. You’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Castle, with a wide selection of restaurants and attractions on your doorstep. The apartments range in size from studios to three-bedrooms, and include spectacular penthouses and a 15th-century two-bedroom townhouse with its own front door.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

4th time in 2 years and I absolutely love Old Town Chambers. Fabulous location and ideal for me as a solo traveller. All the staff are really friendly, the apartments very well equipped, clean, comfortable and some have fantastic views. It really does have a welcoming homely feel. I even learnt a new skill of “casting” to the tv - every day is a school day! Hope to return again soon.

This stay entailed all of the modern comforts set in scenic and old Edinburgh. Was blown away by the hospitality I received the moment I stepped foot inside. Daniel was a great host, and gave me a detailed run down on all that my room had to offer. When I’m back in town, I whole heartedly intend to stay here again :)

Have stayed here before and am so happy made the decision to return. Reception staff are just so friendly and it feels like ‘coming home’. Daniel very kindly helped us to our room with our suitcases. Pls consider staying here if you come to Edinburgh and want the flexibility of having a home from home stay whilst being in the middle of this fabulous city.

Absolutely fantastic stay in our favourite location in Edinburgh. Our 3rd or 4th stay here and we loved it. Staff were all so friendly and helpful. We arrived early and staff rang us when room was ready, which was not long wait. Our bags were waiting for us in the room. My request for my favourite apartment was fulfilled which we Love. All our favourite bars and restaurants are on the doorstep, Devils Advocate, Monteiths, The Witchery. 5 minute walk from train station ( though those stars are a workout ..) Edinburgh is very special to us and Cheval our favourite stay. We have stayed in Cheval Grand Edinburgh also which is fantastic but location of Old Town Chambers wins it for us personally. More relaxed vibes here too.

Ilkeston, United Kingdom41 contributions32 helpful votes
My positive experience at this property started before my trip had even begun! The day before arrival, my daughter was unwell and I was unsure if me and my husband would be able to travel so I contacted the hotel to ask if there was any flexibility in the booking terms as I had booked a pre booked rate. They advised me that they could change the date to a new date if I wished, but I would need to inform them by 8pm that day. As my daughter was starting to feel better we decided to leave it as it was. Luckily by the next morning she was much better so we were able to travel as planned. Upon arrival we were checked in by the friendly staff and we went to our room. We had booked a deluxe one bedroom apartment with balcony but we were put in to a deluxe apartment with loft. We preferred the balcony so we went back to the reception and explained, and they moved us straight away - actually in to a two bedroomed deluxe apartment with balcony - with absolutely no issues at all - everything was dealt with swiftly. The room was amazing, couldn't have asked for anything better. On the second night of our stay we had a letter under our door to inform that due to some emergency works close by to the hotel, the power would be cut off at points throughout the evening and may be intermittent. There was an offer of a free drink in the bar attached to the hotel but as we had planned to go out for the evening anyway we carried on with our plans. When we arrived back at the hotel, the power was off. After an hour or so the manager came to our room and apologised and offered us to move to the other section of the accommodation that wasn't affected, or even to transfer to their sister hotel, The Edinburgh Grand where we could have the same room type as we were in and we could choose to finish off our stay there or return to our original room once the power was back on. As it was late in the evening we decided to just stay we were, it did get a little chilly with no heating but it sound warmed back up again and it really wasn't an issue. The hotel dealt with this matter in such a professional way, despite it being out of their control. The next morning we got an email offering us free breakfast for the next 2 mornings at the restaurant next to the hotel. Again, amazing service. All in all I cannot fault this hotel at all. The location, staff and service is fantastic. The room was cleaned to an extremely high standard every day and I would return here if we choose to come back to Edinburgh. I will also look at other hotels under the Cheval chain for future trips to other cities.

Need a hotel in Edinburgh old town? Seek no more... This is the outstanding spot for you. All aspects will exceed your expectations....the location, the cleanliness, the services, the time preceding technology, the decoration and most of all the breakfast which is a la carte but what you get is certainly beyond expectations. The receptionists are all very elegant, smiling and welcoming, ready to render any assistance that you may require. On departure day i requested a late check-out and it was approved on the spot taking in consideration the busy touristic season at the time. The room is spacious and bright, the view is stunning, the cleanliness makes you feel you are the the first guest to use the room. Now for me...one of the main attractions of Edinburgh is Cheval old town.
