    Hotel in a great location for all attractions. The view from our room on 5th floor of castle was lovely. We didn't eat in hotel but loads of cafes and pubs nearby. The room was clean but looked a little tired.

    Had a lovely stay with friends over Easter weekend. Rooms clean, quiet and comfortable, very peaceful spot considering you're in the centre of Edinburgh. Convenient for the old town. Lovely helpful staff. Would stay here again

    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

    Hello, If I book through Expedia how can I ensure that I will receive a room with a balcony and view of the castle. Of course I expect to pay more, but would be worth it, for my wife and I. Thank you. Paul
