    Neighborhoods

    Explore our neighborhood.

    Edinburgh’s New Town, the world’s finest example of Georgian town planning, has remained spectacularly unchanged since the 18th century. Minutes from our beautifully converted Georgian townhouse hotel, you’ll be strolling graceful avenues and squares as you discover Edinburgh’s many charms. Hit Princes Street and our famous Harvey Nicks department store for one of the UK’s best shopping experiences, and when you’re done, check out packed pubs on Rose Street or sleek cocktail bars along George Street. Minutes from our hotel, you can take in our city’s top art museums and galleries, get lost in the medieval warren that is the Old Town, and visit the magnificent castle on its craggy perch. All that our spectacular Scottish capital offers is within an easy walk of the Hotel Indigo Edinburgh.

    Edinburgh Castle

    This mighty castle has dominated the city’s skyline since the 12th century. Part museum and part garrison, it houses the glittering Crown Jewels and the Stone of Destiny, an ancient symbol of Scottish monarchy. If you’re here in August, celebrate our heritage with bagpipe music at the castle’s Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

    Royal Yacht Britannia

    Here’s your chance to live like royalty. Queen Elizabeth II’s floating palace now resides at Ocean Terminal in Leith, having put in more than 40 years service. Tour sumptuous staterooms, peek into royal bedrooms, and glimpse a Rolls Royce with its very own garage. Finish up in regal style with afternoon tea on the Royal Deck.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Royal-Yacht-Britannia-720x720
    Arthur’s Seat

    The highest point in Edinburgh sits in gloriously wild Holyrood Park. Several footpaths wind up to the volcanic summit of Arthur’s Seat, with the shortest taking 30 minutes from Dunsapie Loch. The (often literally) breath-taking views sweep over the New Town to the Firth of Forth, taking in the Castle and Scottish Parliament Building.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Arthur_s-Seat-720x720
    Princes Street Gardens

    A respite from the milling crowds of Princes Street, these elegant gardens sprawl at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. Stroll immaculate lawns, dawdle in shady nooks, or catch a concert in the bandstand. You’re surrounded by statues of famous Scots – look for the “Gothic Rocket”, a Victorian spire honoring author Walter Scott.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Princes-Street-Gardens-720x720
    Stand Comedy Club

    Steps from our hotel is one of Scotland’s best comedy hotspots, a pioneering venue credited with kick-starting the careers of some of Scotland’s best comics. Its diminutive stage, overlooked by a crazy mural of a suicidal cowboy, has seen the likes of Frankie Boyle and Stewart Lee, and is now the Fringe’s fourth-biggest venue.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Stand-Comedy-Club-720x720
    Edinburgh Playhouse

    This gorgeous theatre is set in a beautifully converted 1920s cinema. It stages all the big-name West End musicals and other hugely popular mainstream shows year-round, but it’s also one of the main venues for the Edinburgh Festival and the Fringe Festival, when you can catch anything from contemporary dance to satirical comedy.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Edinburgh-Playhouse-720x720
    Scottish Storytelling Centre

    The contemporary Scottish Storytelling Centre is a top Edinburgh Festival venue on the Royal Mile. Visit and you’ll be spellbound by the traditional storytelling sessions and performances at the cozy Netherbow Theatre. Right next door, you’ll find exhibits on Reformation leader John Knox in his 15th-century former home.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Scottish-Storytelling-Centre-720x720
    Edinburgh Festival

    Every August, hundreds of thousands of people descend on our city for the world’s biggest celebration of theatre, dance, music, literature and leftfield comedy. Several events roll into one, including the International Festival, the Fringe and the Book Festival. Our hotel’s central location places you steps away from many venues.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Edinburgh-Festival-720x720
    Turquoise Thistle Bar and Restaurant

    Our elegant Turquoise Thistle Bar and Restaurant has you covered with a day-long menu of locally sourced delicacies. Kick-start yourself with a full Scottish breakfast, pop in for hearty Scotch Broth at lunch or pair burgers with a pint of local ale. Round the evening off with a choice of malt whisky nightcaps.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Turquoise-Thistle-Restaurant-720x720
    Milnes Bar

    An Edinburgh institution with walls plastered in literary memorabilia, the wonderfully wonky “poet’s pub” was once the haunt of Scots wordsmiths Hugh MacDiarmid and Sorley MacLean. Follow in their footsteps by ordering a pint of “heavy” and join the friendly banter at the wooden bar, or perch by the warming fire and tuck into haggis pie.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Milnes-Bar-720x720
    The Sheep Heid Inn

    If you tramp up to Arthur’s Seat for glorious views, treat yourself afterwards to lunch at this rustic, 600-year-old watering hole. Settle in by the open fire for a classic Sunday roast or beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips, washed down with a pint of local ale. Finish off with a game of skittles in the charming vintage alley.

    Hotel-Indigo-Edinburgh-Sheep-Heid-Inn-720x720
    The Gardener's Cottage

    A stone cottage set in abundant gardens makes a magical setting for some of Edinburgh’s top contemporary cuisine. Join diners at communal tables for inventive dishes featuring Newhaven lobster or Scottish partridge, paired with superb wines. Perfect for a romantic dinner and just as good for a long, leisurely lunch with pals.

    Testimonials

    • This was our first time staying at a Hotel Indigo and we weren't disappointed. We have stayed in Holiday Inns many times and this is a world apart from them in terms of luxury and comfort. Our room was on the ground floor not far from Reception but not at all noisy. We had a little patio which we would have used had we more time. The decor was different but nice. Our bed was lovely and comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. We also loved the complimentary refreshments and thought the bathroom was excellent. This hotel is in a perfect spot for central Edinburgh and we had no trouble parking the car in a nearby multi-storey at a discounted rate. Overall a great stay.

    • Having stayed here before the hotel was as excellent as ever - the location is great and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Very comfortable room and would recommend the restaurant for dining. Even better now that the tram from the airport stops literally outside the door, however the rooms are very soundproof so this does not disturb your sleep
