Having been to Edinburgh before, I have experienced how loud/crazy the Royal Mile and Haymarket can get at night. So when I started looking for an apartment for our family (2 adults and a child) plus my parents (2 adults), I initially didn't really look in the old town. Airbnb had many apartments, but they were very clearly geared towards...

We recently spent two weeks in Edinburgh and had booked with Stay Edinburgh as we wanted a little more room and the ability to do laundry while we were away. We were placed in one of the Bloor Street apartments as it had a lift. Our apartment looked out onto south bridge. Our initial impression was not good - Bloor...

The Apartment is strategically located in the heart of the Old Town just a few steps from the Royal Mile. The building is equipped with a lift that makes it very easy to reach the rooms. The one bedroom apartment is spacious and can accomodate a small family with plenty of room to move around. The kitchen has everything you...

Stayed with my daughters for a few spring days and loved every minute. It s familiar and nice, not fancy but so charming and you really can't beat the location. Will definitely stay again, even if being very challenged in stairclimbing ability, it was perfect, and the view from the fifth floor beautiful.

We are right now in apartment #3. Our dining room and living room face right on the Royal Mile. We can walk to the castle and princes street very easily and I have mobility issues. Lots of steep hills and good pain meds are a must for old in body, but very young in heart. This is my second April...

As staying several times before I couldn't have faulted it but this time I was very dissapointed. Apartment smelt of smoke as if there was heavy smoker been staying there for a while, flat was little unclean and the beds were very uncomfortable. I don't know what to say really considering you only have 16 apartments and that is how...

Beautiful, modern and cozy apartment on Cowgate street, we really felt good here. Right beside Grassmarket and High Street, just a short walk to the Royal Mile, the Castle was really close, and the rest of the interesting places to visit were also near as we just had to walk down the Royal Mile. The apartment was fully equiped, warm,...

Fab apartment on the Royal Mile...High Street area near to Castle. Was a few minutes walk to castle and go the other way and you will find Palace of Holyrood ... central location and a fabulous apartment. Was pleasantly surprised to find we had two bedrooms, along with tea and coffee facilities. Would not recommend this apartment though if you...

Stayed in Edinburgh city apartments with my in laws, my wife and our 2 year old son. The apartment was more than we expected - lots of room for my son to play in, as well as enough space for 4 adults to relax after bedtime. Close to many attractions in the city. Great service and everything was very well...

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.
