We very much enjoyed our stay in the Grassnarket Hotel. Superb location, clean room and nice to have tea with a treat each day. Bathroom had a nice warm shower. Would recommend to friends and visit again on another occasion.

Fab hotel, advanced booked a snug room. Felt like home the moment I got to my room, complementary bottle of bubbly and tunnocks teacakes replenished daily. Comfy bed, get vibe, amazing bathroom and bed room fittings. Everything was just easy and no stress. Worth the price. And in the heart of Edinburgh. I'll be back for sure.

I absolutely loved this hotel. We stayed 4 days and 3 nights. This hotel is right in the middle of all the touristy destinations my wife and I wanted to hit. the Edinburgh castle was only a flight of stairs away and Grey friars kirk was only a 3 min walk. Grass market itself is surrounded by pubs, food, and...

Hotel is in busy Grassmarket with lots of bars and pubs Nearby: I recommend any of the bars, Dragonfly cocktail bar Is loud in evenings as pub kick out time comes (we were on 4th floor and did have window open) but, for us who were probably drunk, it no problem.

Should've known by the price we paid that something wasn't going to be right. The room was horrendously small. Had to move room due to a hot water issue - which wasn't a problem for us we were happy to move and the young lady in reception was very helpful. But the water situation wasn't much better in the second...

Rooms were large and perfect for a group visit checked in and out in seconds and someone was always there to help when you needed them. No problems with noice and a perfect central location to go back and forth from at all hours. Late check out and breakfast in bed made the stay to be exceptional.

This was my second stay at the Grassmarket Hotel and I would happily return. I admit that the breakfast wasn't as impressive as it should have been to convince me to try it again. There are so many great restaurants in the city that a pretty basic meal isn't necessary! But, in terms of the room and quality of the...

We stayed at the Grassmarket for 3 nights. Rooms were warm & comfortable. Reception staff friendly & helpful. Although there is a pub next door & in a busy tourist area it was still relatively quiet at night, although we were here in winter. Would recommend to younger travelers.

We were in the heart of Edinburgh in a pristine comfy room. Yes it wasn't too large but what can you expect from a budget stay in this city! The only thing to bear in mind is that parking a car in Edinburgh will cost you around 28 pounds a day (this hotel offers a discount which reduces it to...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
