Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Old Town refers to the oldest part of Scotland's capital city. Its ancient topography, known as "crag and tail," dates back to the ice age. Old castles and centuries-old theaters await your perusal. The Royal Mile features most of the shops, bars, cafés, and bars that wend and wind through small alleys.

National Museum of Scotland, St. Giles Cathedral, and the Scottish Parliament are among the most notable and historic ways to discover the history of this charming country. You can walk everywhere in Old Town, following in the footsteps of kings, invading armies, the condemned, and the celebrated.

    Really loved this hotel. Right in the middle of all of the action. Super walkable to several must see sights around the royal mile. Convenient steps to and from the Royal mile and Edinburgh castle. I really enjoyed this property and its location. A wonderful surprise as we were in our room with the do not disturb sign on and that staff left us a lovely basket with treats, fresh towels water and lavatory supplies......LOVE this. I even took a picture. Pouring rain when we left this am and the gal at the front desk loaned me a huge umbrella to go get the car from the parkade! Thank you

    Great central location. Fantastic front desk service. Bathrooms had a bit of mould from all the steam from the shower which also steamed up the room quite a bit, but overall it did not detract from our fantastic time in Edinburgh. Good breakfast.

    Property was neat. Magnet map wall was cool. Staff was nice. Checking in was easy. Street was noisy through the nights. Didn’t get a lot of sleep until after the pubs closed. Lots of noise, windows didn’t seem to block any sound at all.

    There was a weird smell coming from the bathroom, most likely from the plumbing

    Great Location

    Great Location near the castle. Staff were exceptionally helpful. Clean, modern Bathrooms were very nice. Bed was comfortable and the TV was decent - especially considering how much larger it was compared to the size of the room. If you are over 6ft beware - the ceiling on my first floor room was very low. Room did feel a bit stuffy & the key card=power aspect did not allow me to run the fan to move the air around while I was at supper in the evening before I turned in for the night.
