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.

    Loved the central location. Very easy to get to the Castle, the bus station and the train station. Plus our Rabbie's Tour left from very close by. All within walking distance! Staff was very helpful and friendly. Food was incredible!

    Great central location - easy walk to the station. Clean bright and modern rooms and great breakfast. Only caution is there is a massive construction project going on very close to the back of the hotel, and they start work early.

  • 6.0.Good

    We loved how clean it was! So nice to feel comfortable when travelling & it’s much easier in a clean hotel. The restaurant wasn’t great, the food was mediocre and the service was subpar and disjointed with about 4 different staff attending to our table. Our first room had broken AC & it was frustrating to have to move, we waited for a call back then it seemed like front desk had forgotten us we called and they agreed to move us, broken AC would have been a reason to change hotels for us. We didn’t have any staff interactions during our 3 night stay, I was surprised that I was charged for a bottle of prosecco for my hubbys 50th bday when so many other hotel guests have commented on their complimentary gift - guess that didn’t apply to us....

    Hotel is close to trains and Tram and the Castle. I was in Town for the Rugby game and although the weather was so so, better than the weather in Canada.
