For sure I'll go back. It's a lovely place to stay, so clean and comfortable with a great decoration. And the situation can't be better! Closed to the Royal Mile, the castle and many restaurants and pubs. Workers are so nice.

Made you feel you were in YOUR sort of place rather than a formal corporate hotel. Fast and friendly check in . Large spacious triple room , with comfy... More

Lovely room with modern decoration. LOVED the tea & coffee making facilities, magnetic map on the wall and the iPod dock. I was in a single room and it was the right level of cosy without being cramped. The pub next door was great too especially with the 15% hotel residents discount (and free drink) that could be used in... More

Great location, comfortable room. Delicious enormous breakfast. Great amenities in room, inc hairdryer and coffee and teacakes. Only downside is that you can hear people in the corridors however staff do ask you to keep quiet in these areas.

Very friendly and helpful , comfortable, clean and ideally situated. Some great restaurants and cafes nearby. Quirky hotel I would recommend to friends who like something that is definitely not run of the mill.

We stayed only one night in a snug double room. and it was just right. It was convenient, comfortable, clean and practical. The flowers in the window was a lovely touch! The staff is helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel for my daughters graduation. The hotel is excellent on location with most attractions being walking distance. The hotel is funky with comfort thrown in. Obviously a Dandy Comics Fan as it seemed to be the theme across the hotel. i would highly recommend this hotel.

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.

The newly refurbished Grassmarket Hotel is the perfect choice for work and play, and is centrally located only a 2 minute walk from the famous Royal Mile, 10 minute walk from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and moments from the best attractions Edinburgh has to offer including Edinburgh Castle and the historic Royal Mile. If you like to unwind after a hard day in quirky stylish surroundings, you won’t be disappointed. Our designs bring a distinctive and fresh flavour to the Edinburgh hotel market whilst incorporating traditional Scottish twists, with a few surprises along the way! The hotel has newly refurbished guestrooms, ranging from cosy (single room), comfy (standard twin/double) and comfy plus (triple or 4 singles) all complete with rainfall style showers. Can’t cope without your iPod? Pop it in our dock & kick back in sound proofed rooms. Each bedroom has a large flat screen plasma TV. Oh and if that wasn’t enough to keep you occupied, we also have free Wi-Fi. New to the city? All rooms have wall sized magnetic map that will point you in the right direction and air conditioning as standard. ... more   less
