Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.
In Edinburgh’s New Town, this Georgian building is just a 5-minute walk from bustling Princes Street and Edinburgh Rail Station. It offers free Wi-Fi access and serves a free buffet breakfast every morning.
Modern rooms at Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre each have satellite TV and free tea and coffee. Tiled private bathrooms all feature a power shower and a hairdryer.
A free daily buffet breakfast with both hot and cold items is provided in the Great Room. Evening menus are on offer at restaurants on the hotel doorstep.
The restaurants and cinema in the Omni Centre are opposite this Holiday Inn Express. Impressive Edinburgh Castle is 1 mile away, whilst the galleries surrounding Queens Street Gardens are a half-mile walk.
Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, although the nature of the early settlement is unclear.
The Royal Mile runs through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, connecting the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, perched high on a base of volcanic rock, with the splendorous Palace of Holyroodhouse, resting in the shadow of Arthur's Seat. The Mile is overlooked by impressive, towering tenements, between which cobbled closes and narrow stairways interlock to create a secret underground world.
Peppered with superb attractions such as The Real Mary King’s Close or the Scottish Storytelling Centre, historical sites and some of the best eating spots in the city, the Royal Mile offers much to see and do. For a glimpse of recent history, be sure to visit the ultra-modern Scottish Parliament, a striking building boasting a cutting-edge design.
