Great Place to stay right in the heart of Edinburgh. Superb room, probably one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in. Friendly, helpful staff; what more could you ask for? Definitely worth checking out if you plan a stay in Edinburgh

Just visited this little piece of heaven. We stayed in room 1, we checked in before 12 and left our luggage with the staff so we could go for a look around the Christmas markets as our room wasn't ready until 2pm. We came back around 3:30pm and we're shown to our room. I'd asked for a lower floor room... More

What a fun boutique hotel! Great energy in the restaurant/bar and the room was well appointed and fresh. The hotel is located right in the middle of the Royal Mile with the castle just up the hill and the palace a short walk down the hill. A 5 minute walk over the bridge and you are in the new town.

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.
