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.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed here in two rooms for our family's first trip to Edinboro. This hotel is very well located, within walking distance of all of the things we wanted to do and see: Grassmarket, castles, parks, train station. I recommend reading about 30 - 50 reviews which is what I did.

The hotel was clean and the staff were really helpful. The swimming room was nice well looked after and hygienic too. The only reason I didn't give it the full 5/5 is that we decided to eat in the hotel on our first night because we were tired from traveling. Unfortunately the

Stayed here for two nights as part of our bus tour and found it met our needs just fine. The location was great, easy walking distance to what we needed. The room was big enough by European standards and the bed was very comfortable.

Hi! We haven’t rent the car while we were in Dublin thus I can’t be of help. I would recommend to ask the hotel itself.
