You cannot go wrong with this place in Edinburgh, especially if you are a tourist with us. Pleasantly surprised by this apartment. Situated in the heart of Royal Mile; next to St Giles cathedral. The 2 pictures of St Giles cathedral in my post were taken from my room. Within walking distance to Scott monument, Edinburgh castle, Scottish whisky tasting...

My friend and I had book the apartment for a 1 night stay in Edinburgh. It was £100 for 1 night for a 2 bedroom apartment. It was amazing value for money. The apartment was extremely central, 2 minutes away from princes street and the royal mile. The apartment itself was stunning. It was beautifully decorated everywhere. I particularly like...

The location was great but the beds were very small and uncomfortable, also the shower flooded the bathroom really badly and we got locked in our apartment as the key wouldn't unlock the door from inside, luckily we were on the first floor so went out of the window to unlock from the outside to get out again.

Only stayed in the St Giles apartment for one night but would be great for a longer stay. Really nicely furnished and decorated and everything in the kitchen you'd need if you wanted to eat in. But the location is great opposite St Giles cathedral so everything in your doorstep. Easy and quick check in with staff who take you...

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.
