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.

Loved Edinburgh
By Nandanamsu
Had a great stay in Edinburgh, made better by our stay with Crowne Plaza. A good hotel, but could be improved by smartening the rooms. [Less]
IHG Club Quality
By JO747
As an platinum IHG member, we were offered club access for breakfast and early evening drinks. Both were somewhat deficient in terms of food quality and variety compared with other Crowne Plaza [More] hotels. Breakfast items were limited as were appetizers with evening drinks. Otherwise, this was a superb, well-located property which enhanced our visit to Edinburgh we would recommend highly. [Less]
Very private
By Jayindriff
Loved the large spacious room and being in the quiet zone made me feel like I had my own private apartment in the city [Less]
great staff service, breakfast and cleanliness.
By Toonee
Everything about our stay was excellent in terms of hotel service and food. However, the only minus, was the number of 'smokers' who were standing at the front entrance of the hotel on arrival and [More] departure. But I would definitely stay there again. [Less]
Service and Facilities Good - Internet poor
By JimG99
Lovely location, clean room and friendly helpful staff however the internet provider (G5) does not provide access to Microsoft cloud files (this is based on consistent messages from diagnostic [More] software tools that determined the ISP provider had blocked these services). I sat in the bar and connected to another provider from across the road to access my cloud files. I stayed for 4 days and had the problem for all of the days. This is the first IHG Group Hotel with this problem. [Less]
Great Staff - Great Location
By JawjaPeach27
Very enjoyable stay! The building is old but the rooms were very updated and nice. I would absolutely stay there again if I ever go back. [Less]
Fantastic Hotel , great location
By Shanky91
We stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 young kids, aged 10 and 6. The hotel is fairly centrally located within a short walking distance to Princess street, Waverley station etc. There are plenty of [More] eating options , restaurants cafes close to the hotel which was very handy. The Hotel itself is very good and neat and clean. Could not fault with anything at all to be honest. Rooms were very spacious and we were given 2 interconnecting rooms which was very convenient with the kids sleeping in their own proper beds rather than roll-on beds which are not so comfortable in my opinion. Bathrooms are very good with modern suite and Aveda toiletries. Breakfast is decent with good cooked breakfast but not matching the otherwise outstanding standard of the hotel. The options are limited for continental breakfast. It would be really nice to have some more choices in that section. Otherwise everything was brilliant. I would be happy to stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh. [Less]
Edinburgh Visit
By Defender007
The only negative comments I have about the hotel are the following: 1. The elevator didn't go to our room so hauling two big suitcases up and down was a challenge. When we checked, a gentleman took [More] our large suitcases to our room but he was busy when we checked out so I hauled them downstairs. 2. The shower door did not extend completely. That is, it only closed half way so water got on the floor. The door should be extended or something else needs to be done to prevent water from going all over the place. [Less]
Would definitely choose it again if price remains competitive.
By Edinburgh lover
Absolutely no complaints except that the bedside telephone in my own room was dead, and we had to queue to check in. I brought in my own food and ate out, as am a strict vegan. I wanted to give top [More] marks in the bottom line on the previous page but the system disallowed it. [Less]
