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.

Dear MrTonyBrighton, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Ibis Edinburgh Centre South Bridge! It is a great pleasure to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and you found our staff to be accommodating. The idea behind the lack of reception desk is to create a more welcoming atmosphere for the guests by removing the barrier between us. I hope this is what it felt like for you as well. Once again thank you so much for your time and we do hope to welcome you back in the near future! Sincerely, Elitsa Front Office Team Member

Hi, are there carparks nearby and what are the prices, thanks
I work in Edinburgh and parking is so expensive. If you can avoid driving I would. Train station about 3 mins away!

Luggage storage is there. Just ask the reception person. Vegetarian options are limited but being a staunch vegetarian ourselves, we could find enough food for breakfast.

how far by foot is d hotel from waverly st?
Its very near. Hardly 500m. Shortest way is : Go out at from station towards Market Street. You will see an arched staircase (mostly Fleshmarket close) going up, bang opposite side of road, Jus below the signboard "MARKET STREET". Go up the staircase and you will come out on the main road leading to IBIS.
