Good location for royal mile and other attractions. Room was clean and tidy - bathroom was clean but could do with a re grout. Service was fine. Could leave bags before check in and after etc. Would recommend for a stay where you are mostly...More
Found this hotel through a web-search. It is about a 5 minute walk away from Edinburgh High Street. Room was very good and in addition to having a double bed also had a sofa bed where you could sit and watch TV. I believe it...More

Stayed here for a night and it was fine, room clean and warm despite snow on the ground. Receptionist was not very bright however and I was not impressed with her either at check in or check out. Great location if you are on the...More

The breakfast was a fantastic addition, I was not expecting the choice...More
We visit Edinburgh quite a lot and would usually prefer somewhere old, quirky and indulgent. We stayed however this time at The Holiday Inn Express on Cowgate for a half term break with our 11 year old son (his first trip to the Capital) and...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
Lothian bus stop was just up the hill maybe 3 minutes. Waverley train station was about ten minute walk. Skylink and Airlink shuttles from the airport stopped at Waverley bridge about ten minutes away.
