Featured Edinburgh Hotels

Whether it's business or leisure that brings you to the Scottish capital, you'll find spacious rooms, comfortable beds and modern amenities are waiting for you at all Holiday Inn Express® Edinburgh hotels.

Check in then check out this fascinating city that blends medieval castles with modern architecture and offers world-class museums, excellent shopping and dining, and festivals year-round.

Edinburgh's city center is divided into Old Town and New Town with the Princes Street Gardens directly in the middle.
Both Old Town and New Town have been honored as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and if you choose one of our Edinburgh hotels in the city, you'll be happy to know that these areas are easily accessible by foot.

Old Town dates back to the Middle Ages and offers the big tourist draws:
the storied Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile and Mary King's Close, underground tenements that date back to the 16th century.

The Georgian New Town is the commercial heart of the city and dates back to the late 18th century.

Here you'll find the city's best shopping and arts.
The National Gallery of Scotland features both masterpieces and traveling exhibitions, and if you're craving a little theatre during your Edinburgh hotel stay, you can catch a West End show at the Edinburgh Playhouse, Europe's largest theatre.

Edinburgh is also a great destination for sports enthusiasts.

Murrayfield Stadium hosts the UK's biggest rugby matches, as well as regular games for the official Edinburgh Rugby team. Edinburgh also boasts two professional football clubs (soccer to American audiences) and an American-style football team, the Edinburgh Wolves.
If you're staying at our East Edinburgh hotel, you can enjoy the big game, then head to the waterfront district for dinner and cocktails. Or skip the sports all together and enjoy a leisurely day at the beach.

Of course, this is only a small sampling of what you can expect.
Our Edinburgh hotels also make an excellent base during the summer festival season and popular Hogmanay New Year's celebration.

A totally trouble free experience.
By Jockalita
As an older traveller I found and have always found the hotel easy to use.The car parking is a blessing as my partner is disabled.Every facility does what it says on the tin.I cannot fault any member [More] of staff. [Less]
Great Hotel ,Comfy Beds, Clean room and friendly staff.
By Chatty Matty
Good location and courtesy bus reasonably priced. Rooms are spacious and clean and the beds are comfy. Nice breakfast is included. [Less]
A representative stay at a HEX
By adricornell
It is literally 5 minutes away from the airport, so if you have an early flight, it is ideal. The shuttle to and from is reliable as well and didn't take more than 10 minutes to arrive. Continental [More] breakfast starts at 4, which is a good touch, considering it's location, but one downside is that they don't offer to go bags, which, quite frankly, most people with a super early flight would prefer above wasting time eating in the hotel when they could be sleeping! The beds were a little soft for my liking but fine, the room was an ok size for one person and including a small sofa, which I liked. Outlets were decently available, so no issue there. They don't have any bathtubs in the hotel, which was a bit of a bummer for me. Although they have a 24 hour menu, all of the really good warm foods are only available from 5 to 945pm! All in all, it was a decent stay. [Less]
Still great !
By Bazman
I have now stayed at this property several times and plan to stay there every time I am working in the area. I have even planned to stay there privately next year as I am so pleased with the whole [More] aspect from the checkin to the checkout. Like others have mentioned before I do sometimes miss not having bacon on the breakfast menu but cannot in all honesty mark the hotel down for this as I am well aware this is in common with other H.I. Express hotels. I can only say - keep doing what you do as it is fantastic ! [Less]
Welcoming experience

The hotel lived up to expectations, comfortable, warm and relaxed atmosphere. [Less]
Bog-standard HIX
By Pungent
Entirely adequate but unremarkable stay. Exactly what I expect at a HIX. The one non-standard thing was the amazingly friendly receptionist. [Less]
Great Location
By cheyenne452
Great location and friendly staff. Early booking meant really good price. [Less]
An inexpensive place to stay.
For convenience and comfort when visiting the Capital of Scotland, look no further than this hotel. [Less]
Central for city and great value too!
By Cottesmore
The Holiday Inn Express at Picardy Place is all you need for a great city break. It is comfortable, ideally placed for seeing all the sights and if you book ahead there are some real bargains to be [More] had. Despite being beside a very busy road, the secondary glazing on the windows kept all but the emergency vehicle sirens at bay. Our friends found things very much quieter in their room at the rear of the hotel, so if you are a very light sleeper you might bear that in mind. Finally, the Christmas Festival is a must, it is a great way to start Christmas, complete with the German Market stalls, big wheel, Carousel and 'Star Flyer'. Google 'Edinburgh Christmas' for more!
