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.

A nice hotel, in the centre of Edinburgh. Close to the railway station. The pub in the backyard of the hotel keeps it going until 3 in the morning weekends, so if you’re looking for a relaxing hotel, this is probably not your first choice....More

The room was clean and mostly quiet and the staff was lovely. You could hear a bit of the noise from the party at three sisters bar. If choosing between this and Grassmarket as a family GM may be a better fit.More
