I frequently have to go to Edinburgh because of my job and I have now stayed in the Capital View Apartments for around six weeks over the last 6 months. The main reason for why I keep coming back is that the beds are really comfortable, the view is amazing, the interior is pristine and the apartment is light and...

The view and location was great.. When we discovered that the Ladies Close Stairs took us to the Royal Mile and the Hop On Hop Off. The Wash Bar personnel were awesome and very helpful in getting the logistics. The apartment was clean and the free laundromat was great. The apartment could use a few more cooking utensils, like a...

Terrific place that was reasonably priced (for Edinburgh) given its location. I slept on the chair-futon, which was perfectly comfortable, and the youngsters I was traveling with took the beds. It's big enough for three people, though probably not four. Absolutely terrific shower & a great way to warm up after some cold, windy walks on the Royal Mile. :)...

This apartment is in a great location and is clean and modern. Provided a perfect base to explore the old town and easy access to the rail and buses for further afield. I really enjoyed coming 'home' each night to this space and the views are fabulous. The owners were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Happy to recommend...

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.
