Conveniently placed hotelConveniently placed hotel just off The Royal Mile. Good selection of food at buffet breakfast. Clean room if a little lacking in storage when staying for several nights.

Well priced, near the city centre and transports.We had a good experience overall, shame our window didn't open fully as the room was extremely hot, no aircon. Overall is a good budget hotel, close to the Haymarket station and other public transports. A 20 minute walk from the city centre. At the bottom of the street there's a lovely deli.

Great location with easy access to the bus and Sainsbury's across the street. Room was decent, however the bathroom vent was not working potentially and therefore it smelt like milldew after a shower. However it was still very nice having the full bath in the room and a kitchen in the appartment! ...

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a small city full of unexpected contrasts. In the centre you will see people going about their daily lives amid some of the world’s most iconic structures. Inside Edinburgh hotels you will find wholesome traditional Scottish food served with modern flair. It is an enigmatic destination that defies easy explanation.

Book a comfortable stay in a 2 star hotel – any visit to Edinburgh is a truly rewarding experience. Scotland’s capital was the first UNESCO City of Literature and the city is very much like a good book: thrilling, engaging and a magical escape from the everyday.

Edinburgh City of Literature

Many of Scotland’s best-known writers have called Edinburgh home at some point in their career and this is a fact that the city is proud to show off. Edinburgh has many literary tours and points of interest for visitors, including the café where JK Rowling wrote her captivating Harry Potter novels. Of course, this intriguing city has much to recommend it outside of its literary appeal, with everything from historic monuments to parks and gardens and even the famed Royal Yacht Britannia.

As Edinburgh is a small city, you will not be restricted by location when choosing your perfect hotel. Easily find accommodation in different areas using Expedia’s search tool.
