We stayed in flat no. 4 on the first floor for 5 nights. Excellent location. Car park is a bonus! Flat clean, comfortable, well equipped. Shower in the en-suite is excellent! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in Edinburgh for the end of the festival. The clean and spacious appartment is in the perfect location to explore Edinburgh by foot and really includes everything we could have possibly wished for. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and it was the perfect home from home for us.

The apartment was just off the Royal Mile and so convenient to everything. The owner provided many thoughtful touches and was very helpful in every way. She provided great and helpful information . Th suggestions for restaurants were all excellent and we probably wouldn't have found them on our own. I would highly recommend this apartment.

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.
