Hotels in Old Town Edinburgh

The old town is just what the name says it is. The oldest part of Edinburgh city centre. Nearly 8000 people are resident here today but this is far fewer than there used to be. Around 1750 there were reputed to be 25,000 people living in this small area. There are tales from one of the public houses (The Worlds End) that toll gates were placed around the old city and if you didn't have the cash, you could not get out. Online booking of hotels in Edinburgh Old Town is available below.
