Where to stay in Edinburgh

Old Town, New Town, Stockbridge, Haymarket… Edinburgh is made up of a whole host of vibrant districts. Explore easily on foot, thanks to the city’s compact size, or via the popular and convenient local bus network.

Here are a couple of Edinburgh hotels that we really like:

  • Premium: The Chester Residence - Holiday in one of these contemporary hotel suites and indulge in a night of luxurious details, stylish décor and attentive staff. 6 - 9 Rothesay Place, Edinburgh EH3 7SL
  • Budget: Ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - For comfortable and clean rooms in a wonderfully central location. 6 Hunter Square, Off Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH1 1QW

Where to eat in Edinburgh

  • Braw: Grab yourself something fresh and yummy all day long. They even do picnics! 54 Belford Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3BR
  • Number One: Spend a first-class evening in a Michelin-starred restaurant and sample innovative, beautifully presented cuisine. The Balmoral Hotel, 1 Princes Street, Edinburgh EH2 2EQ
  • Butternut Squash: Nothing beats home-cooked food. The atmosphere is relaxed, the prices are very competitive and you can even take along your own wine. 10 D/E Bath Street, Portobello, Edinburgh EH15 1EY

Must-sees in Edinburgh

  • Edinburgh Castle: Free guided tours, spectacular views, the Scottish Crown Jewels, prisons and all kinds of events programmed throughout the year.

  • The Royal Mile: Walk, people watch and stock up on souvenirs. There are all sorts to choose from, from postcards and whisky to kilts.

Activities, art and culture

  • Gilmerton Cove: Even today, the origins of these well-preserved caves remain a mystery. Book yourself a tour to explore the passageways and chambers and learn more about Edinburgh’s curious past.
  • Holyrood Abbey: The abbey dates back to 1128 and it’s beautiful, eerie and packed with history.
  • Camera Obscura and World of Illusions: Five floors of interactive optical tricks and illusions. Great for all ages, visit whatever the weather.

Where to shop in Edinburgh

  • Grassmarket: Impressive architecture, a great atmosphere, bars, restaurants, unique shops and a market with street food on Saturdays.
  • Cadenhead Whisky: A trip to Scotland wouldn’t be complete without whisky! Visit for variety and expert advice. 172 Canongate-Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH8 8DF

Authentically Edinburgh

  • Anteaques: Nothing screams British more than a scone and a good cup of tea! Curiously, this antiques shop plays host not only to trinkets and vintage finds but to a café with over 60 varieties of teas and infusions too.
  • Dominion Cinema: Get that old-school cinema experience at this quirky, independent cinema. The sofas and tables will make you feel right at home.
