    Ridiculously noisy in the Grassmarket at the weekend. Noise continued til after 4am. Also had a £10 redemption as part of our 'deal' but every time we asked about using it, it was 'not valid'! But staff were very helpful and friendly.

    The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location of the hotel was perfect for us with a good variety of eateries, The little shops in Victoria Street were a delight,

    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

    Hello, If I book through Expedia how can I ensure that I will receive a room with a balcony and view of the castle. Of course I expect to pay more, but would be worth it, for my wife and I. Thank you. Paul
