The location of the guest house is excellently central considering how reasonably priced our room was; close to Edinburgh Castle and a wide range of lovely restaurants. Everything was clean, staff were very friendly, and we would definitely stay there again!

Brilliant. Incredibly friendly, and professional. The appartment was clean and tidy, plenty bug enough for a family, let alone 2 people. We will certainly be back here! facilities were plentiful if you were wanting to cook for yourselves too. Not a great view on the bottom floor - but we were in appartment 1, and had access to the garden...

Guest house is in an ideal spot. It's close to the shops, trams stops, old Town and castle. Yes as people have previously said there are a lot of stairs to reach some rooms and breakfast but please don't be put off. The rooms have everything you need for your stay. The breakfast is served on 3rd floor a combination...

We originally booked two nights but decided to stay for three to explore more of the city. Castle View is extremely central and within walking distance of most common and must-see attractions. The room was comfortable albeit a little noisy after hours (which isn't really a complaint because it's something you have to expect being SO downtown and close to...

The guest house is right in the city with great views of the castle. It is such a good location, in walking distance to shops and restaurants, the old town, Haymarket, Dean Village and the railway station, to mention a few. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin and Magic and they were especially helpful with our luggage. There are...

My daughter and I have just returned from a three night stay at Castle View - I have to say it's a little gem of a place. You will struggle to find better value in Edinburgh - the location is perfect and within steps of Princes Street, and very handy for the airport bus. We arrived late on Sunday evening...

Was here for 2 nights on business. This guest house was fabulous, unless you don't do stairs. The reception and lowest level rooms are on the first floor, which is approx 20 steps up. The dining room, which actually has the castle view, is on the 3rd floor, a mere 46 stairs from the 1st floor. It was fine for...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
