Hotels in Edinburgh

Can anyone recommend a good hotel in Edinburgh? I will be traveling with my wife and 12 year old son in early June. I would like something centrally located in a mid-price range. Any suggestions?

Can you give me a notion of the price range, please? Please can you clarify if you're talking per person or per room?

Yes - what is your budget? "Mid-price" doesn't really mean much -- sort of like "reasonable" or "moderate"

Sorry, should have been more specific. My thought was about 100 pounds sterling, but could go a bit higher (say to 150) if necessary. Not sure if this is a reasonable expectation. Just a nice clean room that is close in. Checked the Apex. This seemed a bit high for us at 200 pounds +. I am talking per room, not per person. thanks

Try the new Novotel. It's close to the Apex and within easonable walking distance of most of Edinburgh. Being new the rooms are quite adequate, the baths marvelous and rest of the hotel is typically Novotel. If you can get a rate of 100 GBP a night which is what we paid last Oct. it's not bad.

The Castle View B& B consistently gets favorable comments. There are a number of excellent B&B's in Edinburgh but most are a bit of a walk;however,the bus system is excellent.

We were just in Edinburgh 2 weeks ago and stayed at AmarAgua Guest House. It was great. We paid 105 pounds per night for a comfortable quad room with double bed and two twins for myself, husband and two teen daughters. It is located on Kilmaur Terrace just off Dalkeith Road. It was very easy to get into the center of Edinburgh by bus. And it was quiet. Great breakfasts (included in price) cooked by Dawn Ann and served by her husband Tony. They are the most wonderful people you will ever meet. They were so helpful and just genuinely pleasant. I would definitely stay there again. Check their web site at

Try the Ibis and the Travel Inn in Morrison Street. Oh, and the Grassmarket hotel. And try expedia. They sometimes have great deals
