Holiday Inn Express® Edinburgh – Royal Mile is a 5-minute walk from the Old Town.
Catch trains to Glasgow and London from the nearby Edinburgh Waverley station or take off from Edinburgh Airport (EDI), 30 minutes away.
Amble along Princes Street or stroll up the Royal Mile to explore the 11th century Edinburgh Castle. Head to the luxury stores at Multrees Walk or browse the high-street shops at St James Quarter for some retail therapy. Delve into the city’s past; go underground for a guided tour at The Real Mary King’s Close or brave the depths of The Edinburgh Dungeon if you dare.
Boggle your mind with five floors of interactive optical illusions at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions or climb atop Arthur’s Seat, an ancient volcano in Holyrood Park, for views across Scotland’s capital. Visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse to see the Royal Family's Scottish residence.
Browse social media on the fast and free Wi-Fi and relax in your room with bedside USB ports, a flat-screen TV and en-suite with power shower. After a day exploring, unwind with a pint or gin from the bar and a light bite from the 24-hour menu. In the morning, refuel with cereal, bacon baps and coffee from the inclusive Express Start™ breakfast.
