Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Old Town refers to the oldest part of Scotland's capital city. Its ancient topography, known as "crag and tail," dates back to the ice age. Old castles and centuries-old theaters await your perusal. The Royal Mile features most of the shops, bars, cafés, and bars that wend and wind through small alleys.

National Museum of Scotland, St. Giles Cathedral, and the Scottish Parliament are among the most notable and historic ways to discover the history of this charming country. You can walk everywhere in Old Town, following in the footsteps of kings, invading armies, the condemned, and the celebrated.

    Fantástico!

    Perto de tudo! Bem no centro da Royal Miles, principal via de Edimburgh, a uns 15 minutos da principal estação de metrô. Quartos amplos e confortáveis com locker. A cozinha está a disposição para preparar e fazer suas próprias refeições e tem uma área muito agradável para se socializar com outros viajantes. A cozinha/copa é um plus enorme! Banheiros poderiam ser melhores mantidos em termos de limpeza mas não é dos piores. Água quente com boa pressão. Poderiam ser um pouco flexíveis com o check-in e check-out, mas possuem área para guarda de bagagens. A atendente poderia ser mais sorridente também. Às vezes estamos vindo de longe, cansados, de jet-leg, mochilando há dias e um sorriso pode ajudar no "welcoming".
