    Having previously stayed at the accomodation we were aware of what to expect, and were not disappointed. As other review have alluded to, the property is perfectly placed to enjoy Edinburgh Festival, and Edinburgh in general, a quiet "backwater" in the bustle of festival life....More

    The name says it all—what an amazing location with a view of Edinburgh Castle from your living room. Being one street away from the tourist hubbub keeps the apartment quiet and being one street above the best cheese shop, recommended by our innkeeper Eric, keeps...More

    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

    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
