I stayed at these apartments for a weekend with my family. The office/reception was easy to find to check in but I didn't realize the apartments weren't at this location. It was quite a distance to the bottom end of High Street to our apartment. The apartment was quite small but the decor was modern and bright. The carpets could...

What a stay. Great location. Room #1 had amazing views of the Cathedral - in fact you are practically in the doorway! The kitchen and bathroom were exactly what you expect. The sunken bedroom (almost a level down from the living area) assured a peaceful nights sleep despite being right in the thick of the city! Can't recommend this place...

Myself and my two sisters stayed in one of these apartments for a weekend and I can't say enough good things about them and the people who run them. The decor is amazing as is the location. There were several personal touches like chocolates on the pillows and milk, tea and coffee left for us in the kitchen. I fully...

We have stayed in Edinburgh many times, mostly in hotels but more recently we have been seeking out self catering apartments as we like the flexibility and informality these provide. It's great to have our own lounge to enjoy after a hectic day in the city. Our recent stay in a St Giles Apartment couldn't have been better. The staff...

Smooth booking process direct on line through St Giles Apartments. We choose a 2 bedroomed apartment on Johnston Terrace. Collection of keys from the local office easy, great addition to leave our bags. The apartment had some noise from the guests above but the accommodation itself was spotless. Comfy beds and quality bedding and towels. A good location and would...

I stayed at the St Giles Apartments for 2 nights in December along with 3 other adults. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Very clean, modern and plenty of room.

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.
