Holiday Inn Express

3 star rating 300 Cowgate City Centre

Edinburgh Old Town Midlothian EH1 1NA

It may be basic and it may not be the most intimate of hotels, but the express holiday inn offers a stylish, intelligent take on no-frills accommodation.

Within ambling distance of the Royal Mile, Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace means the Edinburgh Royal Mile express holiday inn is an incredibly practical base from which to explore the city. It is also implausibly affordable, a natural enough of consequence of a no-frills approach to lodging and an intelligent grasp of essentials. For budget accommodation the standards are remarkably high and although ‘no-frills’ in the widest sense of the word, there’s still little luxuries to be had: air-conditioning, flat screen TV, internet access, en-suite and refreshments tray, to name just a few. The rooms whilst basic are also surprisingly stylish.

After a refreshing and relaxed night at the express holiday inn Royal Mile guests can get off to flying start with a hearty hot buffet breakfast in the hotel’s dining room. Great for sightseeing families on the move and business visits – R4U
