    I stayed on the fifth floor with suitcases and the elevator was off all the time. Inflexible regarding cancellation and poor service. The room had no plugs in all the beds and the bathroom was terrible.

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
