We visit Edinburgh quite a lot and would usually prefer somewhere old, quirky and indulgent. We stayed however this time at The Holiday Inn Express on Cowgate for a half term break with our 11 year old son (his first trip to the Capital) and...More
Found this hotel through a web-search. It is about a 5 minute walk away from Edinburgh High Street. Room was very good and in addition to having a double bed also had a sofa bed where you could sit and watch TV. I believe it...More

Good Holiday Inn Express to stay in - right next to the Royal Mile in Edinburgh which is a centre for lots of bars, restaurants and activities including Edinburgh Castle being a whisker away. The rooms were all very clean and tidy and the staff...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
Lothian bus stop was just up the hill maybe 3 minutes. Waverley train station was about ten minute walk. Skylink and Airlink shuttles from the airport stopped at Waverley bridge about ten minutes away.
