A modern Edinburgh hotel in a Georgian building within walking distance of the city's top attractions

Holiday Inn Express® - Edinburgh City Centre hotel is a 10-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station in the city's New Town. It's a short stroll to the York Place tram stop, which has a direct connection to Edinburgh Airport (EDI). The Edinburgh Playhouse theatre and OMNi Edinburgh's restaurants and cinemas are right across the road. Princes Street and George Street's shops are a few minutes' walk away.

You can ramble over the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle, 20 minutes' walk from the hotel. Or experience more royal flavour, less than a mile from the hotel, at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official Scottish residence. Amble through the expansive Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, half an hour on foot from the hotel, or wander into Princes Street Gardens to spot the huge floral clock.

Business guests are on the doorstep of the financial district around St. Andrew Square and George Street, while the Edinburgh International Conference Centre is less than 10 minutes' drive away. The hotel has two smart meeting rooms, plus limited paid parking on a first-come, first-served basis.

Enjoy free WiFi and an inclusive hot Express Start Breakfast. A nearby fitness centre is available to guests. Unwind after a busy day's sightseeing over a cool beer in the lounge bar.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 874 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bella esperienza l' Hotel è pulito, il personale è cortese anche se parla solo inglese. da apprezzare la vicinanza al capolinea del tram da e per l' aeroporto. Inoltre in pochi minuti a piedi si raggiunge il centro e la città vecchia June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel Decent and clean hotel with very attentive staff. The blinds in the room shut out the daylight if you need to, but otherwise it is light and airy. June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy central location and a comfortable stay I stayed for 4 nights at this hotel in June 2016. The main reasons were the location within walking distance of the city centre, the availability of car parking and trust in the Holiday Inn Express brand to provide a reasonable standard of accommodation for the price. It met or exceeded my expectations in most respects. Friendly helpful staff, a larger room than I'd expected and a high standard of cleanliness were some of the highlights. The included breakfast didn't have the greatest choice of food items, but seemed reasonable for the price and they're happy for guests who are in a hurry to take out food for a "breakfast on the go". I used the hotel's car park as I had little option but to arrive by car - central Edinburgh isn't car-friendly, so it's better to come by train if you have the choice. The car park is very small, it's not cheap and it wasn't possible to pre-book/reserve a space, however it worked out OK for me. Overall, I was very happy with my stay. June 20, 2016
