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.

This hotel had everything we wanted. Comfortable bed, proximatey to the city centre, pool, jacuzzi friendly staff etc. Couple of nice touches, a cloakroom to keep our bags before we checked in and after we checked out. Abundance of towels at the leisure centre, nice touch.

Hi! We haven’t rent the car while we were in Dublin thus I can’t be of help. I would recommend to ask the hotel itself.
