Neighbourhood
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.

Firstly the positives, the room was modern and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Negatives, you really should advise guests that there is a Rugby Fan Park right outside the front door. We arrived Friday night [1st Feb] 10 mins before the kick off of the France v

It's the perfect location for those who wish to visit Edinburgh by foot and the room and facilities are modern and welcoming. Be aware that there's a pub located next to the hotel and sometimes the noise can prevent you from sleep. Overall, a good experience.

We stayed in the Family room with six people (3 adults & 3 children), and it was perfect. We had a double bed, two single beds and a set of bunk beds. The beds were very comfortable, and they even provided complimentary spring water and Tunnocks tea cakes every day. We would

Hi badmoon81! The easiest and quickest way to reach us from the airport is by taxi - this will take around 25 minutes and cost approximately £25. However, a cheaper option would be to use the Edinburgh Tram or Airlink 100 Bus, both leave from outside Edinburgh Domestic arrivals at the airport and after a 30 minute journey will drop you at Princes Street. From there the hotel is just a 10 minute walk. Both will cost around £5! I hope this has been helpful for you however please do not hesitate to call us directly on 0131 6226801 should you need more details or have any further questions. The STAY Central Team
