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 enough facilities, polite helpful staff serving. Not sure why they weren't willing to bring in kosher meals. Restrooms were clean. Convenient to Haymarket station area. About a 20 minute walk downtown.

Visited with work, easily accessible from most places in the city. Did not stay here but no one in our grip did either. Facilities were brilliant and food / catering was fabulous for number of people in the group (>500) Would recommend for large groups.
