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.

Not Exactly The Royal Mile but quite close.
By Fozzy1224
Typically good standard of hotel as expected of a Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is well located for access to the Royal Mile and within walking distance of Waverley Train Station via Jeffrey Street [More] and St Mary's Street. The Cowgate leading to Grassmarket is a vibrant area with a wide selection of restaurants and drinking establishments. Friendly helpful staff. If you book up well in advance of your stay chose the option whereby you can cancel without penalty, the price drops down nearer the time of your stay and you can then rebook at a lower price provided there is availability.
