There is nothing executive about them. Have just spent a very enjoyable weekend in Edinburgh returning with trepidation at night to the apartment. It was cold, the very flimsy door rattled everytime someone closed a door elsewhere in the building. The windows might as well have been open all night they were so draughty and when the wind blew it...

My daughter and I booked a twin room for her pre-wedding shopping weekend. We picked up the key to no. 4 and arrived late evening as planned. The hall was in darkness with no working light, we had to find the room by mobile phone light. We were met by the smell of stale urine and found that the door...

This has to be the worst apartments I have ever stayed in. Stains everywhere, windows open ( constantly) to ensure ventilation as there was damp. The Sofabed was covered in stains, the floor wasnt level ( the whole apartment needs re-levelling) and the bathroom leads much to be desired. We stayed in 3/11 of castle Apartments weekend of the 29th...

We arrived at 22 Annandale room 3 and we were a bit apprehensive at the door to the 'suite' The door was very flimsy and not very secure. The room was large and airy and we were initially pleasantly surprised at the decor, but unfortunately this was short lived. The cooking facilities were a joke, we had pots and cooking...

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.
