Edinburgh is a hugely popular tourist destination and so the competition in the hotel industry is fierce, which means that you can expect something special. Many of the hotels on our list also offer fine dining experiences and lively bars that are well worth a visit. During busy periods such as the Festival in the summer or Hogmanay in the winter you’ll find accommodation in short supply so always book early to avoid disappointment.
If you really want to immerse yourself in the history of Edinburgh and spoil yourself with the finest luxury and service, head for The Witchery, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. Its unique suites offer a truly opulent experience that you won’t soon forget.
We also have mid-range hotels on the list that offer comfort and convenience at reasonable prices. The welcoming Edinburgh Thistle Hotel is a great option for families or travelers seeking a bit of peace and quiet without heading too far out of the city center.
The style conscious should head for G & V Hotel on George IV Bridge. Designed by Rosita Missoni it is stylish, comfortable and welcoming. The hotel bar is a great favorite with fashionistas, and their restaurant serves some of the best Italian food in the capital.
Whether you are looking to push the boat out, or watching your pennies, we are sure you will find something to your taste on our list of the top ten Edinburgh hotels.
