Featured Edinburgh Hotels

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, boasts more than a thousand years of history, but that doesn't mean it lacks a modern vibe. Indeed, if you time your visit right, you'll find that Edinburgh is a center for major international festivals. August is festival season, so book your visit early if you want to make sure you have a place to stay.
Of course, if you don't want to go when crowds swarm the city, you're still in for a treat. The weather in Edinburgh is best in the summer, but you can go in winter and still enjoy your visit — just remember to dress warmly. You'll score good deals on Edinburgh hotels during the colder months.
Only about half a million people call Edinburgh home, so the size of the city won't overwhelm you. Edinburgh's charming mix of medieval architecture and modern attractions will keep you busy during your vacation. How can you get the most out of your visit here? Use this brief guide to help you start planning.
dose of nature, head to the Meadows near the university, which offer a tranquil escape from the traffic and noise of the city.
In the mood for shopping? Visit Victoria Street, where you'll find boutique after boutique filled with beautiful items. There are hip shops with all the latest fashions as well as places to find vintage scores. You'll also find a joke shop, and a whiskey shop nearby, so you'll be ready to entertain at the pub.
Whether or not you know much about Sir Walter Scott, a visit the monument in his honor is well worth the time. Climb the narrow staircase of the striking building and receive a beautiful view once you reach the top.
While Arthur's Seat is a can't-miss, so is the city's other extinct volcano, on top of which sits Edinburgh Castle. The old stone structure will take you back to Edinburgh's beginnings. Before you visit, find out when the castle hosts actor-led tours. When you have someone in medieval costume leading you around, you'll feel like you're centuries away from the modern world.
If you're into art, you'll adore a visit to Summerhall, a venue that is home to art galleries, theater performances, and more. It is right next to the Meadows, so it makes for a convenient place to grab a beer and enjoy some art before you venture back out into the lively buzz of the city.
While there are tons of great
things to do in Edinburgh
proper, you may want to step outside of the city for a while. In East Lothian, for example, you can visit the National Museum of Flight, Dirleton Castle, or Tantallon Castle.

A representative stay at a HEX
By adricornell
It is literally 5 minutes away from the airport, so if you have an early flight, it is ideal. The shuttle to and from is reliable as well and didn't take more than 10 minutes to arrive. Continental [More] breakfast starts at 4, which is a good touch, considering it's location, but one downside is that they don't offer to go bags, which, quite frankly, most people with a super early flight would prefer above wasting time eating in the hotel when they could be sleeping! The beds were a little soft for my liking but fine, the room was an ok size for one person and including a small sofa, which I liked. Outlets were decently available, so no issue there. They don't have any bathtubs in the hotel, which was a bit of a bummer for me. Although they have a 24 hour menu, all of the really good warm foods are only available from 5 to 945pm! All in all, it was a decent stay. [Less]
Great Service.

Excellent stay

We have stayed here on several occasions and have always enjoyed our stay. It is handy for Ocean Terminal and has a great bus service just outside taking you to Royal Mile or Princess Street [Less]
Ideal Edinburgh stay
You know what to expect with Holiday Inn Express and on the whole did not disappoint. Excellent location with lots of shopping, eating and drinking venues close by. Free parking and good bus links to [More] the city centre. Only downside was the bed which for me was too firm ( but that is a personal thing) and pillow which said soft was same as one which said firm! However overall would have no hesitation in recommending to others [Less]
great value all round.
