This was our first trip to Edinburgh and our first time renting a flat versus hotel accomodations. We were a bit nervous but Trip Advisor reviews were so positive. We needn't have been worried -- the flat lived up to our expectations and more. The location is perfect and the flat was clean and had all the comforts of home....

Hello Gabriella Z Thanks so much for this lovely review! The jump between a hotel and self-catering can be scary, I know - but there's so much more flexibility, as you say! And you really don't need to compromise on comfort - the apartment is a bit like a Mega-suite in a 4 star hotel - in an ideal location....

This is a very nice flat that is centrally located. We were able to walk to it from the train station and to walk to every attraction. Liz, the owner, provided very helpful advice at every step. The kitchen, living room and bathrooms are nicely sized, but the bedrooms are rather small and cannot fit a dresser or your suitcases...

Hi Emily C Thanks a lot for taking the time to write this review. We try hard to keep our guests happy from before they book until they leave - providing advice and support. I'm sorry you found storing the cases tricky, we'd usually put them under the beds - all of them are open. And, although there's no dressers,...

This is a really lovely flat just a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Expect a really warm welcome from the owners and a lovely clean and smart flat.

We've got nothing but good things to say about Atholl Brae apartment and its owners who we had the pleasure of meeting. Modern amenities, spotlessly clean and luxurious just off the Royal Mile. Secure underground parking. Comfortable beds, briiliant attention to detail with board games for kids and a handy file containing plenty of local information about sightseeing, restaurants etc....

This is a lovely flat in the heart of Edinburgh. The location is great (just off the Royal Mile) and so convenient to pop out and back again. The service is great.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay, in general. We have meantime found solutions to some of the areas which didn't please you - 1 - Moving the bed away from the wall, just a little, made a big difference to the creaky noise you mentioned - I think it...

Thr appartment is very centrally located, but quiet,well equipped and furnished. We were two adults and four children, which made it less comfortable, becuase the opening sofa was in the living room, and as such made it less cossy. As a whole, we do recommend this place, and certainly will be back the next time we go to Edinburgh.

Two couples visiting found spacious flat with two decent-size double bedrooms. Simple, uncluttered and well maintained. Most everything you are likely to need for a short stay. Easily accessible from Waverley Station rear exit, definitely not a pretty route, but don't be put off: for day to day back and forth, the short step to the bottom of the Royal...

My 14 year old daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights in August, based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The location is just fantastic - right off of the Royal Mile.

This apartment was spacious, well-appointed and beautifully located just a stone's throw off the Royal Mile. Our family of four - two college-aged kids and my husband and I - booked this property nearly a year before our June 2011 visit to Edinburgh.

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.
