This modern, elegant hotel is close to everything. The beds are extremely comfortable and then showers are spa like. Each room has a refrigerator and coffee maker which is very convenient. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Both restaurants are excellent and the bar is upbeat and modern. I highly recommend staying at this gem of a hotel.

It's ultra-modern, with zingy colors and lots of chrome. Our room was a good size, with a glass wall overlooking the Royal Mile, and a wall-size mural opposite. There were all the usual amenities--a mini-bar, a room safe, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, etc. The complimentary breakfast was astounding--omelets to order, a buffet with smoked salmon, Brie, fruit salads...

The location of the hotel is perfect, 10 walk from train station and literally round the corner from the castle. Room (128) was a good size, modern and clean, our only gripe was that it lacked a little character. Bed was very comfortable. We ate breakfast in the hotel on the two days we were there and the food was...

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.
