Edinburgh hotels: zoom on the map to update the list
Traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland, is exciting. It is the second most-visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom. When looking for hotels in Edinburgh, the possibilities are almost as bountiful as the local attractions. Whether you are looking for a royal treatment or a modern getaway, accommodation is available to suit any traveller's desires. Some of the best choices include the Radisson Blu, the Best Western Braid Hills and the Bonham, all of which can be booked at ebookers.
The Radisson Blu is located in downtown Edinburgh and is situated close to the city centre shopping area. From the outside, this unassuming building seems to promise only an architectural experience. However, the interior provides guests with all the modern comforts of home. With over 230 rooms, including suites, the bright interior brings guests into the 21st century with modern archways and interior designs. The rooms have neutral colour schemes, but many suites are decorated with dark walls, providing a contrast to the light furniture. Amenities include a pool, fitness room, business centre, free internet access, babysitting, 24-hour room service, and on-site restaurants. In addition to the air-conditioned rooms the Radisson Blu also provides conference and banquet rooms, and is ready to meet special needs of its guests. Ebookers is able to make reservations for you at this beautiful hotel.
The Best Western Braid Hills provides guests with a magnificent view of the city while being tucked into a lush green landscape. The castle-like architecture greets you and pulls you into the interior, where additional plush, warm décor awaits. Rooms are designed to make guests feel like royalty, including four poster beds and beautiful floor-to-ceiling drapes. The warm colours blended with ivory and antique details immediately transport you to days gone by in this historic city. Dining options include inside or outside, both with breath-taking views of Edinburgh. The comfortable interior is reminiscent of the days of fox hunting and old luxury. Amenities are anything but antiquated and include on-site restaurants, wireless Internet, free parking and a full Scottish breakfast each morning. As an added bonus, the Braid Hills is a smoke-free hotel. Through ebookers, low rates for the Best Western Braid Hills make this hotel a fantastic destination at a fantastic price.
If you are looking for less royal yet still refined, the Bonham is a fantastic choice. Recently named Scottish Boutique Hotel of the year, this small hotel still provides big value to its guests. It is within walking distance of shopping and sightseeing destinations. Amenities are seemingly endless, including free breakfast, parking and high speed internet access. Additionally, on-site dining, room service and conference facilities are offered. Pets are allowed, and this Victorian town house style hotel is smoke free. Interior designs of the rooms at the Bonham vary. Some rooms' décors combine antique-style furniture with modern colour schemes and accessories. Other rooms use more modern-style furniture with prints and colours that inspire guests to spend a day of historical sightseeing in Edinburgh. Other rooms are ultramodern, with both furniture and colour schemes providing sharp contrast to the lobby, conference facilities and dining areas in the hotel. With slightly higher rates than other hotels, this quaint setting is still a fantastic value through ebookers.
Each traveller will find hotels in Edinburgh to fall in love with, and the three above are the best place to start, with each hotel offering something appealing in its accommodation and all at reasonable prices on ebookers for the fiscally discerning traveller. A stay in Edinburgh will be truly memorable at any of these establishments.

Edinburgh offers eclectic options for shopping. Princes Street is where you will find standard ‘High Street’ labels, while the West End is full of trendy boutiques.
