Note: the Apex Grassmarket is literally down the block...like 3 doors down. Great location. We got to walk along Victoria Street (The inspiration for Diagon alley) every day to get to the main tourist street. Quieter than being on the Royal Mile. Lots of restaurants...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
