Not a very good hotel it’s cheap but staff are very poor. I would not recommend this hotel unless you have nothing else to go to! It’s a real shame as it is the greatest location. Not your normal holiday inn express!

Good value to stay in Edimburg because it’s near the station and just one street from the royal mile. The breakfast was just correct and the room, for three has a poor free space. The safa bed was not very comfortable.

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
