good clean hotel . to find your way to reception use car park C which is about 100 metres in just past mini roundabout and follow signs to main reception. If you need to drop your luggage off you can park near main reception at the drop off point for 10 mins.

If you are staying for a conference and want cheap and cheerful this is it. It costs £11 by taxi from the airport or £14 from Waverley or £1.30 each way on the bus the 25 takes you to the door from Princes St. For £45 or there abouts you get a single room and a hot breakfast in the...

I cannot fault the cleanliness of the room. The bed was comfortable and the towels were soft. Kettle and tea/coffee/hot chocolate were provided which were welcome. The actual accommodation was satisfactory. However, I do think that the signage of where to "check in" should be clearer as the campus is quite large and there are a lot of buildings that...

I stayed here over a weekend during the Edinburgh Festival. The room was small (well, it is just a dorm room) but very clean and the en suite bathroom had plenty of hot water and was immaculate. Although it's about a 20 minute bus ride into the city centre, it is situated in a very quiet and peaceful park-like setting,...

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.

“I'm tempted to say any room but mine. I would check when booking if it is possible to have a room away from the student rooms, or at least on a top floor somewhere”
