I stayed a night at this hotel for business. I have stayed in a few Novotels and the rooms are identical with the same furnishings even down to the pictures on the wall, so you know what to expect. I chose the hotel for its price, being relatively inexpensive and its location, close to my first meeting. I found the...

Great place to stay, central to the castle and all the other attractions staff friendly, buffet breakfast very good, only downside was the strong smell of chlorine from the pool as you walked in the door and given the wrong directions to find an atm. Good long walk from the castle down the mile.

Though we got a room at the far end of the corridor and the room slightly smelly (nothing too much to be put off), it was a good experience. Good solid breakfast buffet, good facililites (I used the turkish steam bath for myself and swimming pool with the kids). The hotel prepared breakfast bags as we had an early checkout...

Stayed here twice, both times for the Fringe. Enjoy this hotel very much, it's well positioned for the city centre, has a pool which means we can chill out back at the hotel having a swim, sauna etc. Breakfasts are generous, plentiful and tasty. Nothing is too much trouble if you ask for it. Very quiet, great views, comfortable. Will...

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.
