Historic Hotels in Edinburgh

Who has some suggestions on
historical hotels/lodgings
not to be missed in Edinburgh?
I want to stay in a place with
local flavor and that has had
some history..not Holiday Inn.
Cost per person..between
$75-90 dollars US.

Hi Amy, I can't say this is a "Historical Hotel" but I thought I'd mention it to you anyways because I really enjoyed it...I stayed at the Greens Hotel, which I thought was great. L40 for one person a night. I think a double was between L60 and L70. Location was ot right downtown but close enough to walk down there everyday. The Hotel is "behind" a Georgian facade. Definately an Edinbourgh feel to the place. The room was spacious and included a bathroom, staff was very nice, and I saw some wicked antiques while I was staying there. I don't know if they have a website, I'll check the web later, and let you know if I find anything.

Hi Amy, I found a website that details the specs on the GREENS HOTEL in Edinburgh, and it has a picture of the building facade. It's at www.theaa.co.uk/region19/95156.html. The rate quoted was L50-L95 which would be in your price range as well. But there's a catch, it is affiliated with (gasp) Best Western. The website www.theaa.co,uk has other links to Edinburgh hotels if your adamant about no affiliations. As Ebert would say, I give this hotel a thumbs up. Hope this helps!

Just an observation about Best Western hotels in Europe, as this seems to regularly cause confusion. Unlike in the US, where they are usually road-side motels, the Best Westerns here are perfectly reasonable mid-range, full-service hotels. Not luxurious, but certainly a step up from a motel. In most cases, the properties are owned/operated by independent local companies, under franchise from BW.

Thanks for the Greens hotel
suggestion and the clarification
about Best Western and other
chain hotels in Europe.
Since I am travelling so far to
experience Scotland I dont want
to stay in a place that reminds
me of home...so I am more intriqued
by hotels with a bit of history.
That is all.
