An 8-minute drive from Edinburgh Airport, ibis Budget Hotel Edinburgh Park lies just off the City of Edinburgh Bypass and 30 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Park Train Station.

Very good for a supposedly three star place, it felt more like 4 star, reception had food, beer and drinks for sale; all staff were friendly especially one Polish speaking receptionist who I got to speak to in Polish, she was very good, I forget her name unfortunately. The cleaning guy woke me up a lot the first morning knocking every hour, however the reception workers were able to enter DND in the system and this didn't repeat, showing an easy way to fix a minor problem. Free coffee even after checking out was very good, breakfast was ok-standard. The location is good, and going back on the tram you can hop off at Islington park and ride to save yourself the airport fare, as it is just a 10 min. walk to the airport from there. The TV was very good and useful, had so many channels, I got to end my stay in Edinburgh by watching Trainspotting again. The music channels were also great, more than 1 available for chilling with a beer. For just 48 quid or so a night I would definitely stay again in my next visit in the summer or autumn if the price remains steady. For contrast you pay like 250-400 euro a night for a hotel almost anywhere in Ireland now. I think Scotland will be my new home away from home for reasonably priced holidays with friendlier people. I get real sick of unfriendliness living here in Prague. Everyone in Edinburgh was great and a professional friendly hotel staff made the last day very chilled.

Matt was the most welcoming and helpful host. The Ocean Mist was so unique to stay in and was extremely well maintained. We enjoyed settling in with a drink on the upper deck. The night host Danny couldn't do enough to ensure we had an extremely early breakfast before our flight. Highly recommended.

FAQs about hotels in Edinburgh

A Feast for the Senses

A city of heritage, heart and of course Hogmanay, Scotland’s capital is vibrant and edgy. Whether or not you come for one of its many festivals, Edinburgh is quite simply a feast for the senses.

The wealth of Edinburgh sights ranges from Holyrood Palace to the Botanical Gardens, Princes Street to the Royal Mile. Overseeing them all is majestic Edinburgh Castle. Be there at sunset on a clear day to see the city below bathed in a warm, orange glow. Simply stunning.

Wandering the streets, the smell of fish and chips wafts by, with the unique twist of salt ‘n’ sauce – a must-try variation on this favourite dish. Follow it up with a smooth whisky and you’ll start to feel like a local.

For a taste of Scottish culture, a kilt-wearing busker often plays the bagpipes on Waverley Bridge, while traditional folk music can be heard in some Old Town pubs. Complete your stay with a rugby match at Murrayfield or a round at one of the city’s 14 golf clubs, and you’ll have the true Edinburgh experience.

Whether you are looking for hotels near Edinburgh Airport or accommodations in the city center, Booking.com has a great range to choose from.

    The city is a great size for seeing everything on foot. Christmas markets were a great attraction, so many brilliant independent coffee shops and restaurants to visit. Visited solo, and the city felt very safe, always lots people around.

    November is not the right time to visit highlands.

    November is not the right time to visit highlands. The weather is cloudy and trees have started shading leaves. But yes you can feel the christmas vibes in the leading streets of edinburgh. Summer is ideal time to visit and soak in the beauty. But the cobbled roads, gothic architecture they surely charms one the moment one steps into the city from Railway station.

    I would recommend the hop on hop off bus tour, it gives you a perfect overview of the sights, and where you might want to spend longer, public transport is fabulous too, it’s quite hilly in places but worth it for the wonderful views, the Christmas market was lovely and the streets and shops were decorated fabulously, there’s plenty of cafes and pubs to enjoy on your travels☺️

    Edinburgh is beautiful, even on a grey day.

    Edinburgh is beautiful, even on a grey day. There are so many places to go, and the public transport is excellent. Get a bus pass (1 day or longer depending on stay) so you can go anywhere, then take your pick. In summer, Leith and Portobello can be a treat; the river walk by the Waters of Leith is delightful; Surgeons Hall museum is gruesome and interesting; go up Calton Hill for the views, down Grassmarket for people-watching, George Street for fancy eating and shops, Rose Street for atmosphere... My favourite eatery was Pomo on Morrison Street (near Haymarket station), but Auld Hundred and the Boozy Cow on Rose Street both provided good pub grub. And there are some excellent gelati around: Mary's Milk Bar and Ciao Roma come to mind. And if you are of small build, can cope with heights and narrow spaces, climb up the Scott Monument!
