Husband decided to run edinburgh half marathon at short notice so hotels near start line were pretty much booked out and didnt have any family rooms, so we booked this hotel and we're not disapointed. Staff friendly room clean and spacious. Brilliant location just off Royal Mile which meant lots of shops eating places near by. Only had one issue...

Very good four star hotel in the centre of edinburghs trendy grassmarket area. Rooms are to a high standard with fast wifi for emails. Breakfast, although not cheap was of a good level and all staff both on the desk and at breakfast were very well trained and attentive.

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.
