Was only a weekend break at Edinburgh, we stayed in Ibis Edinburgh Centre just a corner away from the very centre of Edinburgh, 5 minutes to the bridge that takes you to Princess street. We took a taxi and left my bag with passports and money in a taxi. The receptionists called the police and the taxi companies and to...

One of my go to hotels in Edinburgh. Staff are friendly and efficient, rooms are refurbished, pleasant, modern and clean. The beds are comfy and there's actually enough water pressure for a proper shower! Free bag storage is a bonus too.

Great location right in centre (just off Royal Mile) but no noticeable noise in the evenings. Very welcoming and helpful staff and bar area a nice extra. Rooms were more than adequate for the price and spotlessly clean. Late checkout of 12 pm a bonus and were more than accommodating in storing our cases after that. Cannot fault the hotel,...

Use this hotel for its location and was very happy. Hotel is just off the Royal Mile and very easy walking distance to all of the major sights and events. Breakfast is buffet style and constantly topped up if anything ran short. Rooms are small but adequate - as we spent little time in the room, this was not a...

Perfect location for visiting Edinburgh. The hotel is modern and clean. Rooms are very small but perfectly formed. When we first checked in we were given a twin room instead of a double. One call to reception had us moved to a double room within minutes, no fuss. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel so can't comment on that...

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.
