We stayed as a family of four and absolutely loved it. It was tastefully decorated, had everything we needed, the best location ad the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The beds were ridiculously comfortable too! Only issue would be the wifi as the connection was poor and slow - but it wasn't a huge problem as we were out...

Wonderful location just in the heart of Edinburgh (Old Town). Walking distance to the Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish Parliament, the St. Giles' Cathedral, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and numerous monuments, old houses. Very lively place with bars, restaurants, shops, coffee houses and pastry shops (ex: Patisserie Valerie Northbridge). The apartment we stayed (flat no. 10)...

This place is perfect not only for the budget but for the location. It is within walking distance to any location including the new town. Nightlife is all around and meeting points for tours are right down stairs. Will return!

We had a 1-nighter in Edinburgh and through the hotel booking sites ended up taking a 1 bedroom apartment from Stay Edinburgh. The booking experience was simple and straightforward. I received an email confirmation and then a personal email asking about my arrival time so they could prepare the apartment in time. This was a nice touch. The reception being...

Absolute value for money. Upgraded to a 2nd apartment on the second floor with amazing views over the High Street. Master suite quiet and bedding extremely comfy. Everything you could possibly need in an apartment. Staff on arrival extremely friendly. But hard to find the address at first as the door to the office is situated within a shop. So...

We recently returned from a three-night stay in Edinburgh and we are SO glad we opted for these guys! We accessed their office via the souvenir shop and were greeted so warmly, then shown to and around our apartment by a lady who answered our questions, made suggestions, and made sure we knew we could call for anything at all...

Great apartment wonderful old building. 200m from castle on the high street. Parking is a challenge. It does have turret steps so be aware you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs. A perfect base for your trip in Edinburgh.

Right slap bang in the heart of Edinburgh, yet still quiet and discrete. Accommodation well maintained and supplied with all the essentials..(no egg cups though). Could not be better located for some of the best pubs ( Jolly Judge....Bow Bar..Sandy Bells) and restaurants (Grain Store) in Auld Reekie.... Unfortunately when these buildings were built all those hundreds of years ago.....

I stayed here with my mum and little boy of 5. We were taken to the apartment earlier than check in so we could leave our belongings. The cleaner was still cleaning and it was no problem. When we returned it was spotless. The apartments are very clean with all commodities you need while staying. I shall be returning. Very...

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.
