As we were a group of seven traveling together we were put into a large apartment big enough for ten. It was fabulous to have all that space and we could almost feel the residents of the long gone past; hearing their skirts rustle as they came to peer with us out the windows onto the street below.

We booked these apartments last minute, and what was supposed to be a relaxing night before a flight, turned in to one of the most stressful! Firstly trying to find them is no easy task, after calling the number they give you several times and getting wrong directions, we finally found it. There is no lift so my daughter and... More

Hi Kate, We would normally welcome feedback in order to continually improve but we are very disappointed with this review is completely false and inaccurate. At time of booking we sent you detailed instructions to the location of the apartment which you understood - the difficulty you had was with finding a suitable car park (which we do not provide)...

The apartment is overall okay and the location is excellent, being very close to the railway station as well (Waverley) However, there were some issues, which can be improved. The wash basin did not work properly (constant waterlogging in the bathroom wash basin) and the sofa in the dining room was very old and dirty. Also, some of the places... More

We only had 1 night in Edinburgh so wanted to do the touristy thing. This location was fantastic...right on the Royal Mile and a short walk to numerous attractions, quality food and shopping. Parking was easy and only a 5-10 minute walk away using the Blackfriars St Carpark (which is now £24 for 24 hours, not £19). The apartment itself... More

The apartment provided to us had the majority of amenities and was clean and ready for use on arrival. Location of the apartment is ideal to essentially everything you want to do and see within the city. The only complaint is that the bathroom was very small. Shower water couldn't be prevented from going throughout the bathroom and the sink... More

Be careful when reviewing the pictures on the website. This are for sure from several years ago and don't show the actual state of the appartment; At least not the one we rented). They are positioned as luxury appartment but ours for sure need a refresher. Old grey industrial paint, walls slightly damaged, windows not sound proof, refrigerators not working... More

Well equipped apartment on the Royal Mile. A stone's throw away from the train station and all the attractions in Edinburgh. Very helpful staff. The only downside is the spiral staircase leading to the apartment.

Stylish and comfortable apartment centrally located on the Royal Mile. Apartment was extremely comfortable and very well equipped to meet all our needs. Although it was on the Royal Mile it looked on to a quiet courtyard near the writers museum. Would definately stay here again.

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.
