We stayed at apartment no 3 185 canongate 2floor. To be honest entrance is very shabby. I was with family and got worried. We stayed for 2nights and I can now say our stay was quiet comfortable. Apartment is very spacious neat and clean. Got all the required things. However some basic are missing like salt, sugar tea coffee sachets....

It was my Stag weekend. I wasn't after the type of crazy weekend I would have perhaps wanted 10 years ago, but a mix of culture, sightseeing and whisky. There were 4 of us staying in the apartment on St Mary's street, just off from the Royal Mile. The first impression is not good. A black, grubby, badly maintained door....

We spent 3 nights in the Royal Mile Apt 2, a family of 5. I am overall ok with my stay but I would not say I am happy due to the price of the appartment. Because it is an appartment and not a hotel, witohout the "perks" and "price" of an Airbnb appartment. 1. The location is great. Right...

First: very good location by the Royal mile and plenty of space in the apartment. But: the noise from the street and the nearby pubs made it impossible to sleep. The window glasses were so thin that you could hear people talk normally on the street below. I do also like to be welcommed by the host. We didn't see...

This apt is all about location, which we wanted. Right on the royal mile which can't be beat, close to pretty much everything. For that the place is perfect... but some things to know before hand, it is on the 4th floor, allot of steps multiple times a day. The apt is for 4 people, the bedroom had 2 single...

Stayed with my wife and in-laws in July 2013. I was looking for something where we could have a bit more "family life", since in hotels you usually just go to your rooms and have to agree on a time to meet. These apartments were exactly what we were looking for! Location is realy good. Not central, but we did...

We were located on the Royal Mile which was fantastic. We were only in Edinburgh for a couple of days so it was nice be so close to everything. Since we were there on a weekend, we were able to park for free just around the corner. The parking is free until 8:00am Monday morning and with an early flight,...

First read about this cottage so you know which apartment/cottage you are booking. The title is a bit misleading. We knew that this cottage was a little way out of the city so we had no surprises. Good bus service, £1.50 into the city centre or £10.00 for a cab. 5min walk to the local co-op stocking all the essentials....

We stayed for a week at the Parkside Apartment, not far from Arthurs Seat which sleeps 6 over 2 floors. From the outside it looks pretty grim and to be fair is better when you get inside. Outside there is a lovely garden but very little, if any, street parking which doesn't cost a fortune. The house could be lovely,...

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.
