Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, famous not only for its annual arts festival but also for the dramatic contrast between the city’s fabulous New Town and the history-drenched cobbled streets of the Old Town.

A trip to Edinburgh is rewarding on so many levels with modern attractions and entertainment options as popular as the traditional sites of Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Palace.

Most of what the city has to offer can be found in the center around the famous Princes Street and Royal Mile – and with Edinburgh being one of the most enjoyable cities for walking, a hotel in the heart of the capital is likely to keep you close to everything you want to see.

If you prefer to travel in comfort around the city, Edinburgh offers an efficient local bus service as well as city tours in open top and closed vehicles that allow you to hop on and off throughout the day. In addition, the long-awaited tram system opened in 2014 providing comfortable and quiet links from the city center to Edinburgh Airport. If you're planning to explore more of Scotland, you could consider renting a car in Edinburgh.

Very walkable, compact city where you have history and something interesting right almost every corner. Good food too, if you do some quick searching.
