Colorful, central Edinburgh hotel in a 19th-century building

Close to Old Town

Edinburgh City Hotel puts you right in the city center, on the fringes of the Old Town and within a 10-minute walk of Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Haymarket and Waverley train stations are a 20- to 25-minute walk away.

Strolling amid history

Edinburgh Castle, which dates from the 12th century, is a 15-minute walk away. An 8-minute walk away, and free to visit, the National Museum of Scotland contains such notable artifacts as Celtic brooches and pieces from a 12th-century chess set.

From breakfast to a beer

You can fuel up with a continental or cooked breakfast, and return in the evening for a beer in the bar and a hearty Scottish meal in Simpsons Restaurant. There's a computer in reception for checking email, or you can switch off and catch Sky news on the bar's flat-screen TV.

Free WiFi and tea tray

The hotel's 52 functional guestrooms feature colorful fabrics and welcome tea trays, and all have free WiFi and a digital TV. Business travelers appreciate the trouser press, and some rooms have a sofabed, ideal if you're traveling with kids.
