The Holyrood hotel is well located - only a few minutes walk to the Edinburgh Castle and the Royal mile. The staff was very helpful when we needed help. The rooms are lovely and fit for a bigger family than ours. However there were too many things that didn't work properly. For example, the washing machine / dryer didn't work...

I've been to Edinburgh with another couple, and we stayed in the Aparthotel for the weekend. The location is just great, in the middle of the old town. Most of the sightseeing-spots are in walking distance, tons of pubs and restaurants as well. The apartment was spacious with 2 bedrooms, a living room, 2 bathrooms and an open kitchen. It...

Everything I could ask for. My little girl of 15 months was so excited to be in this space. Very well apportioned. Good view of Arthur's Seat. Comfortable beds and they provided a high seat and baby's playpen for us. Excellent! Tesco supermarket was just next door making cooking a breeze.

We recently stayed at the Holyrood Aparthotel in Edinburgh with some friends. We had a wonderful 2 bedroom apartment, with our own fully equipped kitchen (cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, cafetiere, etc) which made an excellent base for our weekend mini-break to Edinburgh. Situated at one end of the Royal Mile near Holyrood House and the Scottish Parliament building...

We stayed for nights. 2 minute walk to multiple hop on hop off lines. Less than a like to many attraction in city centre. Make sure to reserve the car park otherwise you'll be parking a few blocks away for 4 pounds more per night. Clean rooms with Kitchenette, refrigerator, dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer.

A very nice review of the Holyrood Aparthotel although I am intrigued by the description of the building as old - given our position in the heart of the Old Town surrounded by buildings dating from the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries, I am not sure the 12 year old Holyrood Aparthotel quite qualifies as old...

We first stayed at the Holyrood Aparthotel about 2 years ago. We chose it then because at that stage it achieved the top or near top ranking amongst Edinburgh accommodation on Tripadvisor. We really enjoyed out stay that time and thought the price was good for the standard being provided. We liked it so much that we decided to again...

Overall a very encouraging review but I was saddened to read that the guest found our bed uncomfortable. We have just replaced the majority of our beds and believed that we were now sitting with an inventory of completely comfortable ones - please let me know which one we missed.

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.
