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.

We were so lucky to stay in Moira's and Eric's castle apartment. It is not only comfortable and felt like home but is located near all of the sites and activities that Edinburgh has to offer (which is a lot). The hosts were very helpful and made sure that our stay was perfect.

Because we had such a good experience when our family stayed in Apartment by Castle's 11/1 apartment in 2015, I made reservations again for a visit with friends, this time in the 16/4 apartment. Location, of course, is the biggest plus of this rental. We were at the foot of the s

Does this place have a website? It is not clear how to make a reservation or find out the rate. Thank you
Sorry for the delay but have been away on holiday. Tripadvisor do not allow me to send you the website information however if you do a google search we can be found at apartmentsbycastle and also abc-edinburgh. Hope this suits.

Does each room have wi fi connections?
There is wi fi in the lounge which can be picked up in the double bedroom but I am unsure if it will be picked up in the twin bedroom. Unfortunately I have never tried it there and there has not been any comment one way or another from any previous guests about it.
