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.

Our bucketlist trip to Scotland
By Brinder
We had been planning this trip for a couple of years now and finally made all the arrangements. From start to finish, our entire experience was painless. Since we had never traveled to Scotland [More] before, we were a little anxious about making reservations in a place we were not familiar with but the process was easy. Upon arrival, we were pleased with the way we were acknowledged by the staff and their willingness to assist with anything we needed. They had information for us regarding taxis, bus and train schedules and local attractions nearby for us to make our trip memorable. The room was neat and clean and we were pleased with all of the facilities. Breakfast was a huge bonus for us and the selection was very welcome. We will stay here again when we travel back to Scotland in the future and Holiday Inn Express will continue to be "first choice" in our travels. Thank you to everyone for being so accommodating and making us feel welcome! [Less]
Good Location and Good price during the week
By Davo-AF
Had a pleasant visit here. USB Charges built in so no need for conversion plugs. WiFi worked great. Had a nice view of the church right next door. One block from a few major bus stops and the hop on [More] hop off. Bed was only double size so not as comfortable. Should at least have been a queen size. [Less]
Friendly staff, clean room
By Polgara
We received a friendly and smiley welcome and the room was clean. However, the breakfast disappointed us. We have stayed at other Holiday Inn Express Hotels and this was not up to standard. No rolls [More] or fresh fruit as advertised. [Less]
Back Again
By Dougie41
Never been disappointed yet, from arriving to departure, Reception are always extremely professional and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast has always been a bit of a disappointment, but [More] is getting better, but still a long way to catch up on others that include breakfast in the price. Get that bit right and will stand out from the rest. [Less]
