I stayed at the Novotel Hotel City Centre in Edinburgh. The room was beautiful and everyone in the hotel was kind and helpful. The concierge at the front desk helped with giving directions to the places I wanted to see. My room was clean and new linen was replaced every day. The wifi in the hotel was easy to access...

Overall I found the hotel to be very pleasing! The rooms were clean, quiet and the staff was always pleasant and accommodating! The beds are quite comfortable - which is what one usually finds in an Accor Hotel. My Superior Room was very light, as I had a complete wall of double windows which helped with the Edinburgh grey and...

Novotel is always a good deal and that was also the case in Edinburgh. It was clean, fresh and good service. The kids really liked the pool in the basement. We would recommend this hotel every day of the week

Novotel's Edinburgh Centre Hotel has a fairly standard hotel atmosphere, but you cannot beat its location, a block and half walk to Brougham Street in one direction and a block walk to a view of Edinburgh castle in the other, and a nice little neighborhood of its own with cafes, restaurants, etc. The Novotel's breakfast will set you up for...

the room in this hotel was good - clean and comfortable. The location is relatively good but I would like to have been closer to the centre. The food was very average. Room service was not very good at all.

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.
