This penthouse apartment on the 9th floor was perfect for us. The back-door led out onto the upper end of the Royal Mile and the views over Edinburgh to the coast and beyond were phenomenal. The bathroom was the only disappointing part as the door didn't lock and the shower was rubbish. Well equiped kitchen and huge central dining and...

We booked for five nights starting August 14, 2013. First impressions are not great as the communal areas are shabby, carpets have seen better days and could use a good clean. We had apartment 8B, so appreciated the elevator. For the price, the apartment would be good value for money. As other reviews stated, the view is lovely and the...

We stumbled across this penthouse when searching for group accommodation online and could not have been happier with it. The location is amazing - really central, just a few minutes walk from the train station/airport bus drop-off point, and with incredible views across the city. It was the perfect location for exploring different parts of the city on foot. Inside,...

We were a group of six girls away for a chilled out Girlie weekend. The Penthouse apartment was in the perfect location, just 5 mins from the train station and just off the Royal Mile at one side and looked out towards Princess Street on the other (again just a 5 min walk). Jill, who dealt with the booking, was...

I stayed 5 nights in one of the 8th floor apartments. Although the apartment was very clean & comfortable, the bed was UNcomfortable. It was 2 singles held together by latches on both ends. The sides of the beds come together in the middle leaving a bar to lay on. Kinda like our fold out sofas except the bar ran...

My family and I stayed in the penthouse apartment in May. While we were there the weather in Edinburgh was really chilly - but the apartment was always pleasantly warm.

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.
