A Budget Stay in Edinburgh

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 16, 2012

The Holiday Inn Express was a good choice for us. We were given a room at the rear of the hotel facing a Catholic church so there was very little noise. The twin room was quite spacious and the bathroom included a good, powerful shower. Rooms were cleaned to a high standard and the front of house staff were friendly and did what they could to make our trip a good one. Breakfast was a laid-back affair with a buffet Continental set-up, as well as hot food like beans, scrambled eggs and pork sausages.
One minor downside was the location on Cowgate, a rather seedy looking road by Edinburgh standards, but to be fair the hotel is at the better end of the road. It was also a bit of a hike on cobbles to get up to the Royal Mile so pack decent shoes.

Unique Quality: The hotel had nothing outstanding, but everything we needed as expected. Recommended for short stays and business trips.

Directions: Although it's billed as the Royal Mile, it isn't. It's on Cowgate.
