What travelers to Edinburgh are saying

Edinburgh soon became one of my favourite cities. It is very unusual in shape and atmosphere and perfect to be explored by walking. We found great restaurants, wonderful pubs and quiet parks all over the city. I love Edinburgh!!

Cheapest Time to Stay in Edinburgh

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.

  • Experience a Cultural Festival

    Edinburgh is Europe’s premier festival city. Its calendar is always crammed with festivals and events, so visitors always have something to look forward to, such as the Snowdrop Festival, Jazz and Blues Festival, and Edinburgh International Festival.

    Taste the Finest Whisky

    Enjoy one of Scotland’s national exports during a whisky tour with Absolute Escapes. Not only will you be able to taste the best single-malt whisky in the world, the whisky trail will also expose you to beautiful countryside, historical landmarks, and stunning coastal stretches.

    Practice Your Drive at St Andrews Links

    For 600 years, golf clubs have been swinging at St. Andrews Links, the most expansive public centre for golf in Europe. The Old Course is considered to be the sport’s original home. By road, the seven golf courses that make up the Links are only an hour from Edinburgh, and the courses are bookable in advance. Host of many Open Championships, the Links have something for golfers of any level. Not a golfer? Take a guided tour of the Old Course on foot. Buy tickets from the guide on the day.

    Go Shopping

    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. New Town will spoil you with its assortment of designer labels, most of which can be found on Multrees Walk. The country’s only Harvey Nichols store is located next to Multrees Walk. If you would rather hunt for vintage treasures, try WM Armstrong & Son in the Grassmarket.

    Take a Ghost Tour

    Learn about Edinburgh’s dark past while you visit the most ghost-ridden locations in Old Town, accompanied by spooky stories and eerie subterranean vaults. Mercat Tours provides tours year round.

  • Edinburgh Castle

    It is the most famous of the castles here. Learn about its unique architectural history, dating from the 12th century (St. Margaret’s Chapel), to the early 20th (the Scottish National War Memorial). Be sure not to miss features such as the Honours (Crown Jewels) of Scotland, the Stone of Destiny, and the One o’Clock Gun. Audio tours are available in eight languages.

    The Georgian House

    Part of Robert Adam’s impressive Charlotte Square, the Georgian House dates from 1796 and reconstructs 18th-century life in upscale New Town. Visitors can see how the house’s exquisite china, beautiful paintings and furniture echo the domestic and social conditions of the era.

    National Library of Scotland

    Don’t miss this research library’s major exhibition every summer. If you can’t visit during summer though, you can still enjoy the year-round events programme as well as smaller exhibitions and educational activities. Admission free.

    Belhaven Bay

    This award-winning beach within the John Muir Country Park sprawls from Belhaven to the north of the River Tyne. It is a perfect setting for long strolls—walk along the cliff-top near Dunbar and pass the harbour and castle ruins—as well as sunbathing and picnics. Look for the new interpretation centre and town house museum as well.

    Edinburgh Zoo

    This leading world zoo houses 1,000+ unique animals from all over the planet and provides them with the highest level of physical and behavioural care. Check out the new, state-of-the-art habitat for chimpanzees, the UK’s only koalas, and the famous Penguin Parade. Guaranteed to keep children delighted for hours, the zoo also boasts play areas, a gift shop, and restaurants.

    Nelson Monument

    The architect Robert Burn designed this monument in the early 19th century in honour of Admiral Lord Nelson’s death and victory at the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar. The breathtaking views of the city make it worth climbing up to the monument’s perch atop Calton Hill.
