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.

Great value
By Goatygoatster
Great hotel for the money, the pool and gym are good, and the breakfast is lovely. Also rooms are clean, well sized and beds are very comfortable [Less]
Lovely stay!
By Adele4982
Room was very clean. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. Friendly, helpful staff and just a generally lovely experience. Only downside was the breakfast charge. Paying for a hotel for the [More] night I'd expect breakfast included. [Less]
Conference venue
By Jeff_uk_1
The conference facilities were good the room was well laid out and not cramped. The room was fine however there was noise from outside during the night. The bathroom was very small, and the towels [More] were hard. The best thing was the room temperature was just right for me, about 18c. Breakfast was not the best Holiday Inn I have had, and the layout is a bit chaotic. It took several attempts to make myself understood when I asked for tea, and I had to hunt down waiting staff. Then I did not get a tea pot ! [Less]
A wonderful stay in Edinburgh
By Clydebuiltbob
The service I received at the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Royal Mile was excellent and I can thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a stay in Scotland's Capital City. [Less]
Great room and friendly helpful staff
By spenny1958
We stayed 2 nights. The room was very clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable (probably the best I've had for this type of accommodation). Breakfast choice was very plentiful with [More] cereals/muesli , pastries, fruit & yogurt, toast with jams, marmalade or honey, and a limited but very nice choice of sausage, beans & scrambled egg. Staff at front desk very helpful, especially Amanda. Not too far from shops, bars & restaurants and nicely located for exploring Edinburgh and surrounding area. A very enjoyable stay! [Less]

Good sleep and great location
By b163
I've stayed at this Hotel Indigo before and was impressed by the great location of it; very easy to get to the bus and train stations, and no distance from shopping areas. The room was great and bed [More] and pillows very comfortable. All the staff I met were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was lovely. [Less]
Modern
By Esselle27
We booked this hotel based on a previous Hotel Indigo experience in Liverpool, prior to arrival I'd communicated with the hotel on a few occasions regarding room options and parking. All responses [More] were good and came back quickly from the helpful reception staff. The hotel is located centrally in the city and looks great on the outside, and as you enter. The communal areas are really warm and welcoming, as are the staff. We were lucky enough to have an upgrade to an Executive King room overlooking York Place. The rooms are very colourful, modern and vibrant - anyone staying here should probably check the website first to see if it's the type of decor you appreciate. We loved it, and the room definitely had a good feel to it, nice and warm with lots of amenities and extras such as a complimentary mini-bar (soft drinks and snacks) which were replaced daily. The bed was extremely comfortable and we liked the large screen TV which was elevated above some storage at the bottom of the bed. Room size was plentiful and it was clean and well-kept, there was some 'city-noise' that could be heard and could affect some travellers who are light sleepers so bear this in mind and request a room on the opposite side of the hotel. The bathroom was without a bath but had an amazing walk-in overhead shower that definitely did not disappoint. We did not use the bar, but had breakfast in the hotel both mornings. Atmosphere was very relaxing - we can imagine it being a nice place to enjoy an evening meal. Breakfast comprises of a continental offering which is buffet style and a served hot breakfast. Service was a little slow and disjointed with food arriving before plates were cleared but it was not terrible and the relaxed atmosphere lent itself to covering up for these small hiccups. The food was very nice and we enjoyed it both days. This a really well located hotel, with great amenities close by and transport links to the main attraction literally on the doorstep. Hotel Indigo as a brand offer something a little different, that really works for us. A great modern environment that still has a warm and cosy feel – we’d definitely revisit this hotel and will look to stay at others in the UK when we travel again. [Less]
