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.

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.

"This should not be compared to many other Novotels in other cities. Would not recommend."
"We had a cold corner room, were given a small fan heater to use.Had to keep it on day and night.Extra blankets had to be requested."
"We chose a standard double room which was plenty good enough for us."
"Beware the Exec rooms, especially if there are 2 of you"
"Ask for a high floor"
US$93 - US$335 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
