Stay Central Hotel is just a 3-minute walk from the historic Royal Mile. Located in the Cowgate, this lively budget hotel is in Edinburgh's Old Town, within half a mile of Princes Street. It surrounds the Three Sisters bar, a pub and nightclub that hosts entertainment and lively events nightly.
Dating back to 1621, the Stay Central Hotel retains many original features. Its en-suite rooms each have a flat-screen TV and on-demand movies, an iPod docking station, tea and coffee-making facilities and a bathroom with a rainfall-style shower.
Guests can relax outside the hotel, where there is an outdoor plasma screen and seating areas that are part of The Three Sisters cobbled courtyard, which attracts a diverse mix of locals and tourists.
Within a mile’s walking distance from the hotel are Holyroodhouse Palace, Festival Theatre and the National Museum. Princes Street Gardens and Edinburgh Castle can be reached in 10 minutes on foot.
This is our guests' favourite part of Edinburgh, according to independent reviews.
Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.
