Check in was pretty smooth and the reception gave us a map with some on the Christmas market location. It is very accessible from the Waverley Train station, around 5 min walk from Market Street, turn into Cockburns road and walk uphill. It's right behind the Starbucks. It is at the old town area, within 5-10 min walking distance to...

We stayed here by end of October for a short break. It's basic but good and bed is comfortable Best thing about this hotel is that the tram is just a 4- minute walk. We will definitely use again when we go back to Edinburgh.

Location excellent. Close proximity to all major sight seeing places and shopping. The one disappointment was that, despite making the reservations weeks ahead, without asking any questions, the front desk agent had awarded us a handicapped room - sink was way down, toilet was up and a very small room. In totality the was not comfortable by a long shot,...

Very helpfull staff, clean, tidy, easily reached by foot from station. Only issue was if you're not on the Hunter Square (front) of the building, and end up on the 'alley' at the rear, you might hear some drunk revelers walking down to the bars in the Cowgate/Grassmarket . Great spot though, If you fancy a breakfast out - I'd...

The hotel is superbly situated in the heart of the old city, and it took me 5 minutes to walk to the Waverley train station, and almost the same time to get up the hill to the castle! The room was really big, comfortable, and the bed was amazing. I loved how they decorated the room, and the fact that...

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.
