Living in Edinburgh sure is busy. We rush around, squeezing in as much as we can every day and then scurry back to our homes to recuperate, only to repeat it all the next day. When was the last time you stopped to take in the beauty of your surroundings? Or enjoy a trip down memory lane at some of your old haunts? 

Fall back in love with Edinburgh by treating yourself to a couple of nights holidaying in your own city. The city’s packed with great accommodation to give you the break you need, without leaving the city boundaries!

Hotels in Edinburgh throw open their doors and welcome millions of visitors from around the world every year. Enjoy a different side of life in Edinburgh by booking in to one of the hundreds of options in the city. Let the helpful staff look after you and enjoy some relaxation - Edinburgh style. You deserve it! 

For a real holiday

Whether you’re looking to grab a bargain, or treat yourself to real luxury - the perfect Edinburgh hotel is waiting for you.

For real indulgence, you might spend a night or two at The Balmoral Hotel in the heart of the city and make use of the spa and swimming pool. For a dining-in experience in decadent surroundings, The Witchery by the Castle has everything you could need, and more. Black Ivy in Bruntsfield is a sensory delight - full of modern design, and for something completely different, spend a night or two on The Fingal, a 23 bedroomed boat, moored in Leith.

For boutique breaks

Your hotel break doesn’t have to be in one of the grand buildings of Edinburgh. The city has many beautiful, boutique hotels tucked away among the busy streets. What they lack in amenities like swimming pools and spa treatments, they make up for in character and detail - often as quirky and delightful as the guests who stay in them! 

Check out our favourite Edinburgh boutique hotels here.

For budget breaks

If you’d rather blow your budget on Edinburgh’s fine dining or fun activities around Edinburgh then there are still plenty of great options for affordable hotel accommodation. Budget hotels often don’t come with a breakfast option, which is wonderful news as some of the best breakfasts you’ll ever eat are waiting for you right here in the city. 

We’ve gathered our favourite low cost Edinburgh hotels to help make your staycation budget go further.
