We stayed stayed in the Novotel Centre for two nights last weekend for our first trip to Edinburgh. Even before arriving the customer service was excellent, I had the help from Sabrina to organise a bottle of prosecco and some desserts to be put in our room (for my boyfriends birthday) for when we arrived. They even put a card...

Really great hotel with friendly members of staff. The room was great with fantastic view of the castle and was very clean. The only constructive feedback I can make is that there were not enough plugs for charging phones. The hotel was in a good location and I would definitely recommend the breakfast and staying here. I would definitely stay...

Pretty much one of those depressing places that make you think, thank God its just for one night as soon as you arrive. Staff pleasant, It was clean and the beds were comfortable to be fair, but the positives end there. Rooms are very small and dated. I didn't eat breakfast after looking at it, my wife attempted to eat...

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.
