Hotel is in busy Grassmarket with lots of bars and pubs Nearby: I recommend any of the bars, Dragonfly cocktail bar Is loud in evenings as pub kick out time comes (we were on 4th floor and did have window open) but, for us who were probably drunk, it no problem. Walking distance to so many places i.e royal mile...

Rooms were large and perfect for a group visit checked in and out in seconds and someone was always there to help when you needed them. No problems with noice and a perfect central location to go back and forth from at all hours. Late check out and breakfast in bed made the stay to be exceptional.

This was my second stay at the Grassmarket Hotel and I would happily return. I admit that the breakfast wasn't as impressive as it should have been to convince me to try it again. There are so many great restaurants in the city that a pretty basic meal isn't necessary! But, in terms of the room and quality of the...

We stayed at the Grassmarket for 3 nights. Rooms were warm & comfortable. Reception staff friendly & helpful. Although there is a pub next door & in a busy tourist area it was still relatively quiet at night, although we were here in winter. Would recommend to younger travelers.

We were in the heart of Edinburgh in a pristine comfy room. Yes it wasn't too large but what can you expect from a budget stay in this city! The only thing to bear in mind is that parking a car in Edinburgh will cost you around 28 pounds a day (this hotel offers a discount which reduces it to...

We stayed in a small little double room which was really comfortable. Although it's small they have put emphasis on key things: the bed and the shower. There also also cute little extras like the extra storage under the bed, the built in speaker and the perfect bathroom lighting. Would certainly stay here again.

Excellent low budget hotel. Ideally located in Grassmarket. Spotlessly clean. Warm & quiet. The double bed was huge & very comfortable.The Tunnock tea cakes were an extra bonus & much appreciated. This is the second time we have stayed in the hotel & we will book again next time we are visiting Edinburgh.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The newly refurbished Grassmarket Hotel is the perfect choice for work and play, and is centrally located only a 2 minute walk from the famous Royal Mile, 10 minute walk from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and moments from the best attractions Edinburgh has to offer including Edinburgh Castle and the historic Royal Mile. If you like to unwind after a hard day in quirky stylish surroundings, you won’t be disappointed. Our designs bring a distinctive and fresh flavour to the Edinburgh hotel market whilst incorporating traditional Scottish twists, with a few surprises along the way! The hotel has newly refurbished guestrooms, ranging from cosy (single room), comfy (standard twin/double) and comfy plus (triple or 4 singles) all complete with rainfall style showers. Can’t cope without your iPod? Pop it in our dock & kick back in sound proofed rooms. Each bedroom has a large flat screen plasma TV. Oh and if that wasn’t enough to keep you occupied, we also have free Wi-Fi. New to the city? All rooms have wall sized magnetic map that will point you in the right direction and air conditioning as standard. ... more   less
