When it comes to a city break in Scotland’s capital, location is key, and the family-friendly Edinburgh City Hotel is definitely a winner, and its warm welcome and good prices make it a popular choice all year round.
Less than 15 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Castle and the National Museum of Scotland, the hotel sits at the heart of the city. Bustling Princes Street (and the Royal Scottish Academy) are just over a mile away, but it’s a quick trip on the bus, and the hotel feels quieter for being a little apart from the city’s commercial centre. The Royal Mile is less than a mile from the property and, for views over the city, The Nelson Monument and Arthur’s Seat are both easily accessible.
Edinburgh has more than its fair share of good restaurants, including a number with Michelin stars, but if you fancy a night in, Simpsons restaurant serves British modern dishes, such as honey and cider-glazed belly pork or battered haddock -- the restaurant uses Scottish produce whenever possible. There’s also a bar for drinks and light refreshments. The hotel takes its environmental obligations seriously and follows initiatives to manage its impact on the planet -- it’s been awarded a VS SILVER Green Tourism Award.
Rooms are decorated in classic hotel style and all offer free Wi-Fi, a welcome tea tray and a laptop safe. Children under 15 stay and eat for free when sharing with a paying adult on the same board basis.
