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.

    Very nice city.

    Very nice city. I would recomend to go 2-3days max as it is not very big. After I recommend to go to the highlands. Places to go in the city are the castle, old town, river etc. Also the free tours are very good

    Always lots to do in Edinburgh. We stayed a couple of days and visited Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, National Gallery and the Britannia. Ocean terminal is great for a variety of restaurants. A day pass for the tram removes the usual city centre driving and parking hassle. Edinburgh zoo is great and will easily take up a few hours. Great city for families, couples and solo travellers.

    Edinburgh is a great city if you like culture, cuisine and comedy. There's always a lot going on. They've got a million little cafes, bars and restaurants. It's also very historical and worth a visit if you're into castles and period buildings. It is quite expensive, especially to go out at night but most places are worth the expense.

    You have to check in at the pub, which is only around the corner from the hotel. Absolutely loved the staff! They were ever so accommodating, especially with complimentary drinks at arrival. Loved the location with it being a good walk to Edinburgh City Centre - where there was a plethora of independent cafes and bakeries selling all sorts of goodies. When you're done exploring Edinburgh, then the bed doesn't go amiss, along with the en suite facility. To reiterate, a great family owned establishment at a great location.

    The location on High Street right in the middle of the Royal Mile is exceptional - almost every Edinburgh attraction is just minutes away by foot. The hotel itself is very tastefully done and our room was amazing, with every ammenity we could think of. My wife even took some photos of the bathroom to serve as inspiration for our own. The front desk staff, bartenders, and housekeeping were all friendly and helpful. Even before we arrived the concierge emailed me with tips on the best transport options from the airport.

    The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, not too far from Edinburgh city centre, we took a taxi into the city one day and it cost just over £20. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and the shower was great. We didn’t use the facilities since we were out but they have a wide range of things to do, and the pool is open late. The bar staff were very friendly, and introduced me to my new favourite cocktail!

We were disappointed to read some of the negative reviews and nearly cancelled, now very glad we didn’t as they were totally unfounded. Would happily stay at the Mercure again and hope to very soon.
