Lodging advice-- 3 days in Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

I'm tacking a 3-day trip to Edinburgh onto the end of some business travel in London in early April. Because my time is so limited, I'm having trouble figuring out a central, affordable but nice place to stay.

I've had my eye on the Edinburgh Thistle Hotel and B+B Edinburgh (on Manor Pl. and Rothesay Ter., respectively), but I'm wondering if this is going to be too far from the city center. It looks like they're going to be a 20-25 min. walk into town. I don't mind a good walk, but I don't want to be too far away from the major attractions, either.

I'm assuming I'll take a train from the airport into the city, and then have to get a cab to wherever I'm staying. Are cabs plentiful in Edinburgh? Also, on one day of the three, I'm renting a car to drive south and see an old family home. Looks like the car rental places are out near the Haymarket train station. So, I'll need a cab there as well.

Does anyone have thoughts on whether the two places I was considering would be convenient to town, or whether I should look for something more central? All input appreciated!
