Featured Edinburgh Hotels

Beneath the shadows of the more than thousand year old Edinburgh Castle, comedians, filmmakers, actors, artists, authors, businesspeople and tourists clatter across Edinburgh's cobblestoned streets. Just like you, they've come for business and play, but also to snag a seat at any number of the city's important cultural festivals. Accommodation books up fast throughout the year here, so make sure to reserve your boutique Edinburgh hotel early to guarantee your prime location near all of the most intriguing cultural and historical sites.

Serving as the capital city of Scotland since the 15th century, Edinburgh has long been a cultural, social and political hub. Begin your stroll through history at Edinburgh Castle itself, St. Giles Cathedral or the iconic Scott Monument, which provides excellent views atop a mere 200 steps. The 150 year old Camera Obscura also provides a stunning 360-degree panorama of the city.

The Greyfriars Kirkyard, also located in Old Town, provides a healthy dose of history, with many famous names on the stones and highly dynamic tour guides to regale visitors with tales of ghosts, grave robbing and English invasion. Alternatively, the Scottish Parliament will provide a much more modern look into today's government. Be sure to snag a pair of free tickets to watch the parliament in session -- just be ready to watch a much more dynamic approach to parliamentary debate than you'll find at home.

Alternatively, take your cultural meanderings inside to the Museum of Scotland, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, or any of the boutique galleries along St. Stephen Street. Here you'll find the distinctive Millenium Clock, pottery dating back to the Roman era, and world class seasonal exhibitions.

Those looking for a little bit of fresh air will find a number of options. A stroll along the Water of Leith will occupy an idyllic afternoon, as will a meander out to the Pentlands Hills Regional Park just south of the center, which provides ample views of the city's tallest buildings. Or, pack a picnic lunch and eat beneath the blooms at the Royal Botanic Garden or the Princess Street Gardens, the latter of which sits right in the heart of the city.

Looking to get a little shopping in? Princes Street, Cockburn Street and Victoria Street are all sure to satisfy, with both large retailers and boutique shops on offer. Princes Mall, St. James Mall and Ocean Terminal are also popular options. If you're going to be headed to a rugby match at Murrayfield Stadium or a football (soccer) match at Tynecastle Park or Easter Road Stadium, make sure to buy a jersey while you're out and about so you can support the home team in style.

From Old Town to Leith and the West End, Edinburgh is chock full of dining options sure to suit any palette. If you're a fan of fried food, you can get it in just about every form here, including fried pudding. However, there are a number of Michelin rated restaurants available, and ethnic cuisine that spans the globe.

No guide to Edinburgh would be complete without exploring the city's many festivals. Attend the Edinburgh International Festival for a glimpse of the festival that preceded all others; the Edinburgh Military Tattoo for your fill of kilted bagpipers; the Edge Festival to see some of today's top bands; or of course, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which invites artists of numerous disciplines to perform in what is now the largest festival of its kind. Just be careful not to trip over the countless barkers as they try to usher you into their shows up and down the Royal Mile.

Edinburgh is easily reached via the M8 motorway, as well as by bus, train and plane. When you arrive, ensure you've got a comfortable and quiet place to rest up at night by booking into one of our boutique hotels in Edinburgh. With world class amenities and helpful staff, your stay with us will keep your rested and ready to embrace all that this dynamic city has to offer.

Latest Edinburgh Hotel Reviews

Nice room and overall design
By mjk22
Indigo hotel in Edinburgh is conveniently located and gives you a boutique experience in a major chain. Georgian terraces are not easy to convert into modern spacious hotels and the Indigo is [More] probably one of the few hotels that manage to keep character yet give modern feel. Rooms are comfortable and well designed if small and some can be cramped if you are a business traveller who needs to work. Only issues - it was noisy overnight, the internet is a bit slow and the choice of TV channels is limited. Didn't eat in this stay but the bar and restaurant area are welcoming and food has been good in the past [Less]
great stay
By loeby

Very comfortable hotel with great service
By Betmac66
Excellent base for visiting Edinburgh City. Only two miles from the centre and in nice quiet location to allow for a good sleep at night. Food very good and staff could not be more helpful. [Less]
Handy Hotel for the West End of Edinburgh
By Wee Mental Davy
Uncommonly, there is ample free parking here. I was given a large room with an excellent view across Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. Good breakfast. [Less]
Happy to be back!
By TerryD
One of my regular monthly business visits to Scotland. My "Scottish office", as I fondly refer to it, lived up to the usual standards of friendliness, comfort and good service that I have come to [More] expect and certainly enjoy at this well managed hotel. I shall return in November for another ego boost and thanks to all concerned who make my stays here so pleasurable. [Less]
Good Location, Nice Stay
By Kennymac777
Had a very pleasant stay at the Edinburgh Crowne Plaza. Close to the city but far enough away that noise isn't a factor. Different to the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow in that this isn't a purpose built [More] hotel. Before you book enquire about the discount parking deal with a local car park as you get a good discount (unfortunately i only found this out after i had booked the parking). Only slight downside i found with my stay is their isn't much choice in the bar and when i stayed the pool was unavailable due to it just having been repaired. [Less]
great location and Staff
By ScreamingLemur33

By DunTravelling
Created from a series of Georgian townhouses, this hotel provides excellent facilities and a VERY quiet, peaceful venue. Comfortable, good service. All one could ask for. [Less]
