    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

    Does this hotel offer free breakfast, or do you order and pay for it in the restaurant?

    Traveling in July. Is this OK for family of 3 (teen and parents) ? Some of the reviews about crazy partying and the place smelling of stale beer concern me.

    What is your answer?
    Posting guidelines
    Are the management in this hotel taking heed to any of the negatives/problems/issues that seem to be letting the place down? Are these things being addressed? I've seen comments about the food and staff from months ago and then recent comments re the same. No one wants to have expectations then turn up and they get blown out the water. Especially after having a look at the website's projection of the hotel. The noise won't be a problem to me but: Can you get breakfast at 7:30am or not? Will the tables and chairs be clean? Will breakfast be hot? Are the staff respectful? Do the staff have the correct attitude to suit the work they are doing? Thanks
