          Great location for visiting the sites in Old Town Edinburgh. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. We especially enjoyed meeting people in the pubs located in the Grassmarket square. The castle, museum, St. Giles Church and looks s of shopping and restaurants are nearby.

          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
          Courtyard Edinburgh West
