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.

Excellent hotel in good location near the Royal Mile and around the corner from our favourite Italian at Vitoria on the Bridge and also plenty pubs nearby. Good service and rooms very nice. Check in was quick and easy and staff all friendly.

It’s a steep climb from the train station. When we went my daughter booked an Uber cab, cost was under £15. Avoids all the hassle.
