Working in travel myself i often like to take advantage of the special rates we can access and the Hilton has never let me down where ever I have booked. Booked about a month before arrival as was a quick decision for a January weekend break. I got a very good deal on an executive king room with access to...

I stay in hotels on a weekly basis for 3 or 4 nights; I don't tend to find much difference in terms of hotel quality but I notice a drastic difference in the quality of their staff - and this is the difference between a great and a terrible stay. The Hilton Carlton is very new and as a result...

This is a very nice hotel with good staff. Only criticism was the tables in the dining room were too close together. There were six tables in a row where there probably should only have been four max. The music was also very bad (rave type music) so I think you shouldreconsider playing more subtle music.

Modern, stylish and spacious in all public areas. Comfortable clean rooms, mine with a great view. In Edinburgh for business, I will return to stay here again. All of the staff were attentive and professional. I felt I was in good hands. The corporate event team were great and kept checking whether our event was going ok and if we...

The right of the hotel is the high street and it's a five minute walk if that and to the left is the royal mile and that around a two minute walk. There are resteraunts shops...

It was excellent. the chef had put time and thought into making the Afternoon Tea as delicious for me as for my non vegan companions. Well worth the visit and would definitely go back. Thank you so much.

We have just returned after a lovely weekend. We booked one night at the hotel. We were greeted by very nice friendly staff on reception. Our room was an executive king on the 4th floor with wonderful panoramic views over the city. The room was very nicely decorated. Lovely decor. Spotlessly clean. Clean crisp bedding. Bathroom was a good size...

Comfortable, accommodating, friendly, prime location, and great food. This hotel was amazing, I could write a massive long review about all the things we enjoyed about it but I think you have to go see for yourself. Thank you for a lovely stay, we'll definitely be back.

Just off the Royal mile the hotel Edinburgh is right outside the front door! The hotel staff are attentive and were keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Ate at the bar on the first night as we arrived quite late - great club sandwich. The room was comfortable.

We had a Groupon for an afternoon tea for two in the bar here. Firstly, we were "squeezed in" on a Sunday as Saturdays fully booked, but the place was empty. The waiter didn't explain any of the things on the tray of food he just set it down and left, you do not get to choose from a selection...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
