Thanks a lot for posting your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The garage is quite an asset, because not only is it right on site, but it's bit more secure than a public car park - so ideal for bikes, cars and motor-bikes. Edinburgh's a versatile destination and there's lots to see an do for all sort of...

We spent 3 nights here in May and it was great to spread out and have a living room and a kitchen, rather than just a hotel room.

I would definitely recommend this appartment for a city break in Edinburgh. The location is great if you are getting the train or driving as parking is also available (a rareity in Edinburgh).

Thanks a lot for posting your review. We think the quiet location is one of the best points of the apartment, too. You are literally a stone's throw from the bustle of the Royal Mile, but because the entrance to the street is narrow - it comes though a historic tunnel, under the former Toll-house - there is very little...

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.
