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.

This is our go-to hotel when we are in Edinburgh. Always clean, friendly, handy for railway station and ideal location for meeting up with friends. I would highly recommend. Breakfasts are varied and great quality. Staff very helpful and happy to help. Service is prompt.

Had a beautiful break in Edinburgh last month and pick this Premier Inn as our Base. We arrived early Sunday morning and there was not room ready which does not surprise me having worked in Hotels for years myself but by time we got lunch and went back our rooms were ready check

We slept well in the comfy bed. Enjoyed breakfast. Helpful staff. Located really close to EICC and also the Meadows. Enjoyed a lovely walk round the Meadows in the morning before breakfast. Would be perfect for a morning run if you were that way inclined! Would stay again.

Stayed at this hotel for the weekend at the end of February. Ideally placed that you are not too far from main attractions but far enough away that it is nice and peaceful. Staff were all very helpful and courteous. Parking is approximately 5-10 minute walk away and the hotel

Does the hotel provide parking? And if so does the hotel provide parking tickets you can buy at the front desk?
Thank you for your question. We offer discounted parking at the NCP Car Park at Castle Terrace(EH1 2EW) for guests which provides up to 24 hours at £14 as opposed to the normal £28. A validation ticket will be presented upon check out. We no longer have a partnership at Riego Street. I hope this helps you with your enquiry. Paul D, Duty manager

"Ask for a room that does not overlook the streets as these are quieter,"
"Stayed on 4th floor not much of a view in November 😂"
"All seem good - some will have views"
"Luxury prices but mid-range facilities. Room 510 seems bigger than usual."
"Geta room on an upper floor for reduced traffic noise"
