Most popular areas in Edinburgh for 4-star hotels

There's no shortage of 4-star hotels between the Georgian rowhouses and Gothic edifices of handsome Edinburgh. Those looking for a classy and contemporary stay could look to the regal whitewashed mansions of the New Town area, all of which are interspersed with some of the capital's most happening bars and stylish restaurants. For immersion in the ancient history of the city, the countless spots along the Royal Mile promise a setting that's just beneath the iconic walls of Edinburgh Castle. There are other options peppering the neo-Classical flagstones of the Royal Terrace, close to the National Monument and Holyrood.

Top 4-star hotels in Edinburgh

The Eden Locke is unquestionably the cream of Edinburgh 4-star hotels. Serene and peaceful, it has intelligently designed suites that fuse traditional rooms with apartment facilities – think L-shaped sofas and self-catering kitchen spaces, all dressed in neutral colour schemes and Nordic-inspired wall art. Haymarket is home to the vibrant lobbies of the Leonardo Royal, which has sumptuous Scottish breakfast buffets to match its sumptuous private rooms. And then there's The Scotsman, hiding crackling log fires and a modern wine bar behind its meticulously carved Baroque exterior in the Old Town.

Where to find the best restaurants in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the go-to place to taste the freshest flavours of Scottish fare. There are creative chefs using foraged foods and organic Highland delicacies to take their menus from the hearty and traditional to the edgy and modern, all around the New Town. The Old Town is home to cosy pubs, with real log fires, offering filling Sunday roasts, but there's also a wealth of whisky distilleries and gourmet fusion restaurants where you can eat to the sound of bagpipes. For seafood cooked straight from the icy waters of the North Sea, the area of Leith on the coast is the best choice.

The most popular things to do in Edinburgh

Guided tours of the ancient bulwarks and court rooms of Edinburgh Castle are a great way to encounter the history that continues to flow through this ancient capital. You'll get tales of ghosts and clan leaders and rebellions, not to mention some gorgeous views over the Victorian tenement tops and craggy city hills. From there, it's just a short trip downhill to stroll between the pubs and cafes of the Royal Mile, spying out famous churches and statues as you go. And for the little ones? How about Edinburgh Zoo? Roaring tigers, giant pandas and waddling penguins all await within.

Best ways to get around Edinburgh

The Edinburgh tram network is one of the most popular ways to get around the major sights and neighbourhoods of the capital. It links everywhere from the rugby terraces of Murrayfield to the departure halls of Edinburgh Airport. Alternatively, you could opt to hop between those Edinburgh 4-star hotels and city attractions in a taxi. Uber is an option, while it's also likely that your accommodation can recommend the most reliable local hire firms. For seeing the Old Town, it's best to walk – those Gothic side streets and medieval lanes are just waiting for you to set off and explore.
