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.

Stayed here only one night, but loved it. The built in blutooth speakers, the rain shower head and all of the services offered were great. Centrally located to everything in Edinburgh. Shares a courtyard with Three Sisters sports pub.

During my short stay I found the staff very attentive and the location great. Just a short walk from Waverly station. My room was very comfortable and the style of the room and hotel as a whole was fun, modern and funky. I would definitely be returning and would recommend.

Stayed with the Stay Central Hotel for 2 nights in January and it was perfect, lovely clean spacious rooms and close to everything Edinburgh has to offer, the adjoining 3 sisters bar is a great starting point for a Saturday night out.

Hello! What's the best transport from the airport?
Hi badmoon81! The easiest and quickest way to reach us from the airport is by taxi - this will take around 25 minutes and cost approximately £25. However, a cheaper option would be to use the Edinburgh Tram or Airlink 100 Bus, both leave from outside Edinburgh Domestic arrivals at the airport and after a 30 minute journey will drop you at Princes Street. From there the hotel is just a 10 minute walk. Both will cost around £5! I hope this has been helpful for you however please do not hesitate to call us directly on 0131 6226801 should you need more details or have any further questions. The STAY Central Team
