The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and welcoming. Our room was on the second floor with amazing views of the castle. (All family rooms have...

Friendly staff on arrival and the room was luxurious and comfortable with beautiful views of the castle. There was however a locked a joining door to the next room which meant the noise from the next room travelled very easily and loudly!

Excellent location and easy to walk to main attractions. Great view of the castle. Pool is ok with small changing rooms and only a sauna. Breakfast was a let down. Good food but service slow and staff were confused about orders. Would go back though.

Loved this Hotel, wanted to stay longer. Close to all amenities. We had a view looking onto the Castle, was wonderful, even slept with curtains open so I wouldn't miss it. Managed to get a great deal, don't know if I could afford it otherwise. Will certainly be looking out for more. Will certainly be back.

The hotel is is a good location with a 5-10 minute walk up the hill to Royal Mile. Bars opposite are really good. Hotel staff were very helpful and welcoming and the hotel is very clean. Could not fault the rooms.

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.
