I had previously stayed in a studio apartment in this block, on this occasion I stayed in the three bedroom apartment, which was huge and would be ideal for families and groups. The location is excellent with stunning views to Princes Street, and Edinburgh catle and most other tourist destinations are within walking distance of the apartment.

Just back from a few days stay in Edinburgh and would like to reiterate what a lot of other travellers have said about Capital View Apartments. The location is excellent. On your doorstep you have two exits - one towards Prince's Street and another leading to the Royal Mile. The apartment was perfectly sized for our needs (a couple wanting...

This was our fourth stay at Capital View Apartments and there will be many more. The apartment is always clean and comfortable. Since we stayed more than one week, Jill provided us an extra set of linens and towels. The view is amazing, the location is fantastic, and Jill is extremely nice. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting...

I stayed here with friends for the Hogmanay celebrations; we were all very impressed with the size and location of the apartment. It slept our group of 8 very comfortably and was the perfect city centre base for exploring the city. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend and would happily stay here again.

I stayed here with three friends over New Years Eve and highly recommend it. The apartment has wonderful views over the new town, is perfectly located for sightseeing in the old town and could not have been a more perfect location to enjoy the Hogmanay celebrations - so convenient in fact that we could pop back to the apartment to...

A wonderful few days in the penthouse apartment attending our son's graduation . The usual fantastic views over Edinburgh, lovely to see the Christmas lights being switched on without leaving the flat! Very comfortable, well appointed and well equipped. We will return again!

The most excellent location in Edinburgh, better than the top hotels' locations. Being in a venerable old building with views over the city and a friendly cafe a few doors along that opened by breakfast time what could be better. It is a studio apartment, so mainly "one-room" living, so you need to be freindly, (we were grandma, daughter with...

We have stayed in this apartment a number of times. We keep coming back because it's so conveniently situated for the old city and also the new town and shops. The apartment is very small but has everything you need. It is very clean and has splendid views. For the first time we stayed in the lower apartment on the...

Location is about the only thing the Capital View apartments has going for it. We stayed three nights in September. The first thing that happened was a rickety toilet seat that fell off. The bathroom is cramped for space, with no place to put toiletry items or an outlet for hair appliances. The towels were old and bleach-stained; by the...

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.
