The metro restaurant is located in Apex hotel and head chef is local Tony Singh who's menu has a twist on east meets west. Staff guided us through the menu and sharing platters are an excellent way of tasting dishes you probably would not choose...More

We had dinner here one night as we stayed in this hotel. Their Mushroom Soup was very good; fish was average. Service great.

We escaped the busy grass market and a group of us went to the bar to drink a mixture of cocktails and wine. The cocktails were competitively priced but a large glass of red wine was over £9 a bit steep, we thought.

The great thing about this restaurant - and the hotel - is the superb, caring and friendly staff. The food is consistently just-ok but when combined with the great staff is perfect if you've been travelling hard and and want some no-hassle dinner nourishment. Breakfast...More

Close to our hotel. Great service. Terrible food for dinner. Frozen butter with cold bread. High prices for small portions, entrees were tasteless. Wish we would've known not to go here.

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
