We stayed there in August for 3 nights. The hotel is every conveniently located for the old town and not too far from many attractions. The room we were in was mediocre - old fashioned, no views to speak of and it was quite hot....More

Lovely hotel but not cheap. Shame you have help yourself to breakfast as waiter service at 5* would be nice. Had lovely views and could maybe return if the price is right. Staff all very pleasant and lovely cocktails at the bar.
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.
