great location but boy is this place run down. Our room had a view of a mouldy wall and was stifling hot next to the boiler with an ancient and uncomfortable bed. It's really a sad place but it could be fantastic with the right...More

My brother and I stayed at The Scotsman Hotel and had a wonderful experience. The facilities are great, the location could not be better and the staff was outstanding. I have never been treated better. Ivor should be given a raise!
Beautiful building, the restaurant and public spaces, room well appointed and comfortable, staff just terrific, especially Barry the concierge, he's knowledgeable and helpful.

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.
