Hotels in Edinburgh

Hotels in Edinburgh are an eclectic mix of classic and cutting-edge. You will find no shortage of hotels with tartan lined lobbies, soaps made with Scottish heather, and an abundance of scones and crumpets at breakfast, some of the best hotels in Edinburgh would not be out of place in the trendiest neighborhoods of Milan or Copenhagen. Case in point the Hotel Missoni, a stunning, contemporary addition to the Edinburgh hotels scene which is, perhaps surprisingly, on the Royal Mile in the heart of the city's Old Town.

The 33-room Tigerlily is another contemporary option, on Georges Street, one of the prime high-end shopping streets of the New Town. The Sheraton Grand, on Festival Square, is a big-brand's largely successful attempt to play it cool. Ask for a room with a view of Edinburgh Castle.

If you'd rather keep it old school, the Balmoral Hotel opened in 1902 as one of the Britain's great railway hotels. While the hotel is now part of the Rocco Forte group, the doormen are still in kilts while the Queen Mother often dropped in for lunch on her visits to Scotland.
