We ended up here when our original apartment had an plumbing issue and were booked here by them. I think we got a good deal as this apartment would sleep 6 comfortably so we had a room each! Great apartment. No issues except the corkscrew was broken (LOL) Comfortable. Located about £10 cab fare from city centre. Nice neighbours who...

Auld Reekie has all the basics you need in a low budget kind of way. Everything is clearly pretty cheap but it's warm, there's hot water and you get a towel each. It's adequately clean but I would say it's been a while since it was deep cleaned or had any money spent on it. 64 steps up to the...

Stayed for the weekend with friends and overall the apartment was clean, in a great spot and just what we needed with 6 of us. Well kept and spacious. The tiny gripe for us was just the little touches like no tea or coffee or salt and pepper. In the grand scheme of it they are not important but litle...

After a five day walking tour staying at B&Bs, it was great to be able to prepare our own meals and wash our clothes. While there was a washing machine, no washing powder or sachets was provided, which did mean the purchase of a box at the supermarket to do just one load of washing - rather wasteful. However the...

This is a very pleasant apartment near the centre of Edinburgh, within easy walking distance of many of the city's attractions. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay: it's quiet, well-maintained, spacious and everything was in good working order. Free WiFi was a bonus for the very reasonable price. I would note that there are...

This review is for a 3 bedroom apartment just off the royal mile that is on the third floor of an 1850's building so no lift. The stairs are a bit of a hike, not too bad but elderly or injured should not book this flat. The apartment had 1 3/4 baths which were redone by the owner/proprietors and are...

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.
