We were welcomed by friendly staff who took us up to our room. We were on the top floor and the place has no lift but the stairs aren't a too bad climb. The room was spacious and had all mod cons. The GHDs are a great bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

I cannot thank the Inn on the Mile enough for the hospitality they showed me during my stay in Aug-Sept. As a single female traveler, I so appreciated their help and kindness during my four night stay, not to mention the charm that comes with staying in a hotel with a bar for a lobby!

Great stay at a prime location. I highly recommend it. I loved Edinburgh and if I ever return, I will stay there again. Not your typical hotel with a lobby. The pub itself serves as well a pub, reception and lobby. Very welcoming and friendly.

I had a full veggie breakfast before a day of sightseeing in Edinburgh. The interior was lovely and the food and service was great. Looks like it would be a nice place to stay in the centre of the Royal Mile and would have a lively nightime pub scene.

Me and my sister stayed here 2 nights and loved it. Great service, great room and great location. Lovely touches in the room like nice toiletries, straighteners and beautiful bathroom. Located right on the royal mile yet noise from outside was never a problem when we were in our room.

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.
