Very convenient, close to everything I wanted to see. Nice staff, cute hotel. Bathroom small. I banged into the towel rack when I exited the shower. No grab bar of any kind and a slippery floor made the shower a little scary to use. I...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
