Edinburgh City Holiday Reviews

Edinburgh City, Edinburgh



Book a hotel in Edinburgh and enjoy the historical capital of Scotland and its impressive and endlessly pretty castle skyline. Edinburgh offers fantastic galleries and museums, world-class theatres and great shopping, making this destination vibrant and modern with a traditional Scottish twist.

Hotels in Edinburgh are scattered all around the city, with the main concentration being in the city centre, around Princes Street and the Royal Mile. It doesn't really matter, however, as the city is well connected with an excellent bus and tram network. In most cases, the best parts of Edinburgh are with walking distance of your hotel.

As a capital city, Edinburgh offers all of the regular delights you would expect - including excellent shopping and a nightlife that is famous all over the world - yet it has so much more to offer.

  • The Royal Mile is the cultural heart of Edinburgh. In August this street is filled with artists and acts performing and selling tickets to their shows in the Edinburgh fringe. For the rest of the year, the Royal Mile offers excellent architecture, museums, The Whiskey Experience and a whole host of bars, tourist shops and restaurants. At the top of the Royal Mile, you reach Edinburgh Castle
  • Edinburgh Castle sits atop a large hill right in the centre of Edinburgh. From here you can get some of the best views of the city, you could even see your hotel! Visit the castle for a journey through Scotland's fascinating history.
  • The Palace of Holyroodhouse offers you a chance to see into how the royals live, with it still very much being one of the Queens residences. You can purchase tickets to visit the Palace from us when you book your Edinburgh Hotel


There is so much to see and do in this thriving city. To help plan your break, we have pulled together an Edinburgh Travel Guide that should help you decide what to do whilst there. What's more, if you want to make your most out of your short break, why not save some time and hop on one of our flight packages to Edinburgh So why not book your Hotel in Edinburgh and discover all the exciting things we've mentioned here.

Weekend in Edinburgh

Stay Date: 18/05/07, a customer from Sheffield who stayed at 4* Fountain Court Apartments - Grove in Edinburgh wrote this review.

I would highly recommend a long weekend visit to Edinburgh. You will never be short of places to visit or excellent eating places. A visit to Mary King's Close on the Royal Mile is a must. In 1753 See More  Read more information the Royal Exchange (now the City Chambers)was built on this site. The houses at the top of the close were knocked down and part of the lower sections were kept and used as the foundations for theRoyal Exchange. The remnants of the closes were left beneath the building, which you can visit. If you like Italian Food, visit Il Castello on Castle Terrace. It is in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. Theservice was fantastic and the food delicious - however do book as it is very popular.   Collapse  Hide

Edinburgh Festival Time

Stay Date: 18/08/06, a customer who stayed at 5* Principal Edinburgh George Street in Edinburgh wrote this review.

Military Tattoo was brilliant! You get a bit squished in the seats but you only notice that till the show starts then it's forgotten! A must see. Edinburgh in festival time is anything but boring. See More  Read more information There are loads of great shows to see and if you're lucky like we were you might even spot some celebrities! City of the Dead walking tour is a must, freaks you out suitably in a cemetry. Guides aregreat and so informative.   Collapse  Hide

Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Stay Date: 03/08/07, a customer from Superbreak who stayed at 4* Holyrood Aparthotel in Edinburgh wrote this review.

There are not many rooms that you enter and say "Wow". However when you book at the aparthotel you get two bedrooms, two bathrooms a living room and small kitchen. All this just off The Royal Mile. See More  Read more information The staff are some of the most friendly and efficient I have met anywhere. It was a perfect base for "doing" The Edinburgh Fringe. Amidst all the chaos of The Festival I also booked to see TheEdinburgh Military Tattoo - a first for me after 15 years of coming to this city in August. I always wondered what all the fuss was about - and now I know. The Tattoo is a spectacle on a grand scale.The precision of the marching bands, the rousing music, the haunting lament of the lone piper on the battlements and a firework display that lit the sky over Edinburgh Castle. It was quite a chillynight and the seating is open air but my advice is buy a ticket, wrap up warm and soak up the atmosphere. I am not sure there is a better way of spending a night in Edinburgh. Totally memorable.   Collapse  Hide

Excellent short break in Edinburgh

Stay Date: 28/08/07, a customer who stayed at 3* Old Waverley Hotel in Edinburgh wrote this review.

My mother (aged 84) and I loved our room with excellent views up Princes Street to the Castle - particularly at night when all was lit up.
