We spent 3 nights here in May and it was great to spread out and have a living room and a kitchen, rather than just a hotel room. It was centrally located and within easy walking distance of most attractions. The bottle of bubbly and the shortbread was a lovely touch .Elizabeth was most helpful and the books provided gave...

We spent 3 nights in the Royal Mile Apartment along with another couple. It was ideally suited for the 4 of us. It is up one flight of stairs.

I would definitely recommend this appartment for a city break in Edinburgh. The location is great if you are getting the train or driving as parking is also available (a rareity in Edinburgh). Just off the Royal Mile and 10 minutes walk from Princess Street, also walking distance of Grassmarket mean this is a well located apartment. We were met... More

Thanks a lot for posting your review. We think the quiet location is one of the best points of the apartment, too. You are literally a stone's throw from the bustle of the Royal Mile, but because the entrance to the street is narrow - it comes though a historic tunnel, under the former Toll-house - there is very little...

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.
