    Lots of fun things to see and do and just a nice place to hang out. Loads of lunch spots; we would recommend the Whiskey and Haggis arcade and suggest try the Robert Burns Famous Haggis with whiskey sauce; one portion is enough for 2 people.

    The real St Mary's Close.

    The real St Mary's Close. Amazing "Museum" which is actually a series of uncovered streets that were originally built beneath the current road, below the town. When the plague hit, the poor were entombed there. The history of it was mind-boggling. A must to see. The Mile itself just great to walk, stop, sip a drink or two. The Dome restaurant and Bars wonderous at Xmas. Fantastic array of external and internal Christmas lights, trees.

    Loved walking up and down the Royal Mile, it was the Fringe Festival while were there, it was a hive of activity and street performers were dotted along the mile. There are also some interesting shops selling souvenirs, if that's your thing

    DON'T go in peak season! The historical interest is completely obfuscated by the crowds and tacky souvenir shops. Taking a walking tour with Mercat tours at least gives one interesting historical information

    Hopefully you'll get a chance to walk the entire length.

    Hopefully you'll get a chance to walk the entire length. Always a bustling area with lots of interesting things to do and see. Too much to list here. Check online. the Whisky adventure is a must for those who like a tipple, Camera Obscura at the castle end. Holyrood Palace and park at the other. Book the top end restaurants well in advance of your visit.

    This hotel is located close to the Royal Mile. You can explore Edinburgh Castle, the grass market, Arthur’sSeat, and more, all within walking distance. Breakfast is very good and available for a good amount of time in the morning. They also offer to store your luggage if needed before or following your check out time. Very helpful and nice.

    This is a great hostel in Edinburgh! The location is amazing. It’s right next to the castle and the royal mile. Each bed has a plug and a little shelf to set your phone and stuff while it’s charging overnight. The lockers were a good size. You can fit a whole packed backpack inside. In my room, there was a little sitting area to get ready without being in the way of others. Breakfast was basic, but good. Lots of great amenities.

    The property is centrally located on the Royal Mile but was generally quiet due to good soundproofing. The little studio apartment was extremely clean and it was useful to have a washer/dryer machine and a kitchenette with dishwasher. The gym was large and well-equipped for a hotel gym, particularly for weight lifting. There were treadmills and rowing machines.

    The location really can’t be beat for visiting Edinburgh. Right in the heart of the Royal Mile. The apartment was clean and well appointed. It’s a multistory walkup, so be prepared for that. And it may seem strange to pickup the keys at a pizza place, but it totally makes sense once you do it. Just make sure you knock on the door and don’t stand outside waiting for something to happen. Like we did.

    The location is extremely central, especially if you're arriving by train. The hotel is just a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley station. It's also a quick and pleasant walk to the Royal Mile. The room was spacious and clean and the staff was very friendly. I will definitely stay again if I'm ever back in Edinburgh.

    It is a very well located apartment, if you don't have problems with walking a little, it is very close to everything, in our case we went to Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and Princes Street on foot. The apartment is super comfortable, we were four people and up to eight can stay, which means that we were very comfortable.

    Excellent location -- in the heart of historic Edinburgh. Easy walk from the train station, and close to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Royal Mile, etc. No meals served in the hotel, but you did get a discount for meals at very good restaurant and pub just across the street. My room and private bath were quite nice, and very clean. I was able to send out my laundry in the morning and have it back that evening.

    Haymarket is fantastic - very clean, safe area, short walk to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, and very affordable. However, you may want to use the apartment's website to book directly for additional bonuses (we used Booking but we didn't know about the bonus features).
