Edinburgh: What should we bring for a hotel stay?
While our accommodation often includes complimentary toiletries, it's important to pack your own personal care items, especially if you are travelling abroad and are not sure if the same brands are available.
If you're travelling in the winter, it's important to note that Edinburgh can often be cold – in fact, it can average between 1 - 7 °C. The city is also prone to rain, so pack those umbrellas and waterproof jackets!
The summer is warmer, however, so you might want to bring lighter clothing during these months. Check the weather report before you travel as Scottish weather can be a little unpredictable!
Your best hotel in Edinburgh: how to get there and make your booking?
As the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh is easily accessible by train, bus, car, and aeroplane.
From London, you can take the train from King's Cross Station directly to Waverley Station in just 4 hours and 21 minutes. You can also catch a bus with several providers, such as Megabus and National Express Coaches.
If you fancy a road trip, the M1 and A1 will take you from London to Edinburgh in just over 7 hours, although that doesn't include stops!
Perhaps the easiest form of transport is flying, which can be done in as little as 1 hour and 15 minutes of flight time from London to Edinburgh Airport. You can depart from Stansted, Luton, Gatwick, London City Airport, and Heathrow with a range of airlines including Easyjet and British Airways.

The opinion of the Voyage Privé travel expert on hotels in Edinburgh
You can't go wrong in this elegant district filled with a sea of Georgian houses, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. If shopping is your favourite pastime, then choose a room at the Tigerlily Hotel or the fabulous Nira Caledonia. You can take a leisurely stroll down the famous Princes Street before stopping off at St. Mary's Cathedral and the Scottish National Gallery.
Just like its London counterpart, this area of the city is buzzing with cultural and artistic energy. Located right in the centre, you are well situated with a stay at the Edinburgh Address Apartments or the deluxe Dunstane House. Pick up last-minute tickets for a thrilling theatre show, or browse the West End Fair during the Edinburgh Festival.
The Royal Mile
To truly be part of the action in this city, a visit to the Royal Mile – the central street of Old Town Edinburgh – is essential. Opt for a stay at the Scotsman Hotel or the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton to fully experience this area, which houses an abundance of tourist hotspots – the famous castle, the Palace of Holyrood, and the Scottish Parliament. The question is, which one will you stop at first?
Edinburgh: A City of Magic and History
From the moment your train pulls into Waverley Station, you will be able to bask in the the warm light of Edinburgh's old street lamps and the old world charm of the cobbled paths.
Stop off with your friends or partner at a cosy pub for a taste of traditional haggis. Perhaps try a glass of Scotch Whisky, too? Afterwards, immerse yourself in the underground history of the city with a theatrical tour of the Edinburgh Dungeons.
In August, you can pay a visit to the world famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe for some theatrical entertainment. Just make sure to book your tickets early! You can also see how the Queen lives each summer at Holyrood Palace, or catch an early sunset and some stunning views from Arthur's Seat.
Children will delight in visiting author J. K. Rowling's spiritual home where the Harry Potter books came to life. A visit to Edinburgh Castle, which looks remarkably similar to Hogwarts, will inspire young minds. You can even opt to take them on a Harry Potter inspired walking tour – exercise and inspiration both combined into one activity!
