These apartments appear to be a bit of a lottery. The one we stayed at - No.10 James Court - was a little rough around the edges, but it was clean and offered one of the best locations in Edinburgh for a mere £25 per head, based on a family of four. The WiFi was fine and although the owner...

I'm a little confused on where some of the other reviewers stayed. Some of the reviews were definately not at the Castle Apartments that we stayed at. My wife and I had an apartment on Lawnmarket. It was one of the apartments on the top floor. It has a stone, spiral staircase with a rope handrail on the last spiral....

I recently went on a college trip to Edinburgh, arriving at the hostel on the 20th January and departing on the morning of the 22nd. There was a group of around 36 students staying at the hostel on Queen Street, in a total of 4 rooms. Personally, I stayed in Room 2, a room that accommodated 9 people altogether. On...

Stayed here with friends for a long weekend November 2013 Staff were helpful when we went to collect keys and answered our questions about places to go, eat etc. On first glance the apartments are nice- a HUGE bath in the bathroom which was a nice "treat". The twin bedroom was incredibly drafty and duvets paperthin- keeping in mind this...

Our castle apartment was in a great central location right off the Grassmarket and only a five minute walk from the castle and the royal mile. Our small two bedroom was clean, convenient, and worked well for us. We had no major complaints other than the fact that the location is prone to loud pub-goers until late into the night,...

Paid the rest, 181GBP by credit card when we collected the key at Queens Street office. On our arrival what a dismal let down not at all like the web page information, no nearby parking, closest...

Fantastic stay!!! perfect for couples and families . The homely feel was the kind of change we needed as we were tired from the soulless hotel rooms. The remote check in went in smoothy. The location was second to none. although the check out was by 1000 hrs , The Managing Director, Scott was really helpful. Please keep up the...

We had such a brilliant time despite the horrendous downpours on day 2 of the trip. The cocoons were perfect because we stayed dry. the first night and full day, the weather had been excellent and the outdoor camp fire was ideal for a BBQ. After an evening walk in the grounds, and a relaxing spell in the hot tub,...

We stayed as a couple and found the apartment perfect for our needs. It was basic but clean and tidy and couldn't wish for a better location. An easy walk to the castle and just off the royal mile. Apartment was up a small flight of stair so if you have trouble with stairs this might not be the place...

Group of five women stayed in the two bed apartment you see in the pictures with all the stone walls (3 James Court, Apartment 1). While it was not the most modern of apartments I have ever seen, it was clean and very comfortable. Idealy located a stones throw from the castle and many other tourist attractions and also Grassmarket,...

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.
