We had a very pleasant stay here and would recommend this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helped us out in an emergency situation where we had to take a kid to the hospital. Simple and good breakfast- a few more options would help.

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
