The apartment is located on the Royal Mile down Old Fishermans Close. The walk from High street down to the apartment is s steep walk but doable. The apartment decor is modern. The kitchen is fantastic, as is the bathroom and shower. The views down Old Fishermans Close (circa 1400) are amazing. Make sure you go on the Night Ghost...

We stayed here on 12.10 and our 3 bed apartment was stunning. Towels, toiletries and tea/coffee provided. The kitchen had a washing machine, dishwasher and there was also a tumble dryer. Great for a longer stay. The only downside to our stay was that it was very noisy during the night. The cathedral bells didn't bother us as much, it...

I met up with two friends in Edinburgh, and they had booked us at the apartments, in a two-bedroom. First off, the location is amazing. Right on the Royal Mile. Second, the decor and furniture are well laid out. Great beds and showers, as well as a laundry machine which, at my stage is travel, had become quite important! :P...

For 6 of us, 3 couples, this was cheaper than a hotel and had the benefit that we could sit together of a evening to chat, we could cook if we chose and have breakfast in our PJs. We were in the actual St Giles apts, top floor in flat 6, which is 3 bedroomed with one bathroom plus one...

From the moment we arrived could tell it would be a lovely stay. Due to arriving early the 2 apartments weren't ready but we were able to leave our bags in reception which helped rather than having to lug them around. Apartments were very spacious and modern. Everything was clean and tidy and very comfy beds. Apartments are easy to...

It worked fine for our use, which was a pied a terre for the fringe festival. The place is 4 star, so I don't expect it to be top end. For our purpose, it suited us fine, beds were comfy, bathrooms were good, kitchen was very useable. Location superb. I would rate it 5 but it's missing the little things...

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment on Advocates Close, about 10 steps off the Royal Mile opposite St. Giles' Cathedral. It was an amazing location right in the middle of everything.

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.
