The inn on the mile was the perfect way to spend a birthday. Arrived to check in and were given lovely complementary drinks and then taken to our room where my partner was delighted to find a lovely birthday card and chocolates. The room is beautiful and fresh, very comfy beds and great surround sound. Loved the little touches including...

From the moment we entered, we were greeted by extremely friendly staff to help with check in as well as our baggage and getting us settled in. This was certainly a unique experience, as the check in is done downstairs at the pub underneath the inn. We were treated to complimentary drinks, and enjoyed a nice meal before heading up...

Absolutely top drawer from start to finish. Arrived to an enthusiastic and informative welcome from Vincent despite it being quite busy in the bar. The room was clean, spacious and lovely little extra touches like the absolutely enormous bed! Brilliant location right off the Royal Mile, great service and would definitely stay here again but for longer next time 😊

Great location, however it can be noisy as the Royal Mile seems to attract party animals all night! Delightful decor and although the room was tiny, it had everything we wanted: comfortable bed with good linen, a safe, well maintained mini bar, clean and ultra modern bathroom. The downside was our room was on the top floor and there were...

Rooms are clean, albeit small...however, for the price, it was well worth it. Nightly live music in the common room downstairs with good food and drinks!

Lovely hotel in the perfect location - as the name suggests. Stayed here before Christmas and will definitely be coming back. We had to wait a while to be checked in but we received a complimentary drink in the bar while waiting so couldn't complain. From the prosecco awaiting us in the room to the live music in the bar...

I simply adore this place. It's my second visit to the Inn on the Mile and it's just such a special little experience if you're in town for a couple of nights. The location couldn't be more ideal, the staff are always lovely and helpful, and the rooms themselves are beautifully presented.

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.
