What you REALLY need to see in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city bursting with history, attractions and culture, and it’s almost impossible to cram everything in!

Fear not. Our Edinburgh hotel has listed what you REALLY need to see on your next staycation. Have these top attractions lined up, and let the good times roll in between!


Edinburgh Castle

Perhaps the most iconic part of our city, sat atop an extinct volcano is the majestic Edinburgh Castle. A World-Heritage site and a mighty fortress to behold, take a tour inside its deep and wonderful history. There’s so much to do and find, a second trip can’t be missed - even if you’ve seen it before. Don’t forget to listen for the one-o’clock cannon, fired every day, except Sundays!


The Old Town

Filled to the brim with listed buildings, you can find yourself in the epicentre of Edinburgh’s medieval history. The staggering architecture of the city is a sight to behold, and while not many people know it, the winding labyrinth of the underground vaults beneath your feet hold some dark secrets, unknown to this era.


Hike Up Arthur’s Seat

Forming a part of the ginormous, extinct volcano is a view like no other. Arthur’s seat is an enjoyable hike, especially on a crisp morning. Reach the top to find stunning, panoramic views no camera could capture. Built up of the city and surrounding areas, bring a picnic and a flask of tea or coffee, and take in the phenomenal sights.


Portobello Beach

One of Edinburgh’s best-kept secrets is our very own beach. Found in a suburb of our city, two miles of sand welcomes you. Perfect for paddling or sunbathing on a warm summer’s day, a picnic or even just a romantic stroll, a day at the beach is never far away from our Edinburgh hotel.


Explore the Palace of Holyroodhouse

The Queen’s official residence in Scotland is right here, at the end of the Royal Mile. Encapsulating grandeur and regality, the palace is open for daily tours, evoking the history of Scottish royalty and colourful history. The Palace of Holyroodhouse also includes the Queen’s Gallery which hosts ever-changing exhibitions from the Royal collection. You can’t miss this when you stop at our hotel in Edinburgh

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Reviews



This hotel is such a great find. Its location cannot be beat and the rooms are incredibly nice. Great amenities (including complimentary mini bar) and great service. Would definitely stay here again!


Newcastle upon Tyne

I stayed here overnight to see Justin Timberlake on his Man of The Woods Tour. We were greeted with the warmest welcome by the receptionist...genuinely helpful and friendly. We stayed in the Suite, which has everything I could possibly need. A FREE (well stocked) mini bar! Robes, Aveda toiletries, slippers, free calls, a very appreciated cafetiere with ground coffee and a lovely selection of teas. 30mins in and a welcome plate arrived with 5 good size desserts...gorgeous.

Room service was excellent and the breakfast was utterly delicious and brought to the room at no extra charge. The room was very large and spacious with a huge double bed, blissfully comfortable. When needed in the evening the staff pressed a button at reception and a taxi arrived within 2 minutes...Outstanding service!

I had such a fantastic stay here that I shall return in November and I'll be re-booking this Suite.


Kingston upon Hull

Less than 10 mins walk from Waverley. Staff were very polite, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Room was a good size with a great bathroom. Large shower, robes and Aveda products included. Fridge with free cold drinks. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Both couples enjoyed and would stay again.



Really nice friendly boutique hotel. We didn't arrive until late but the hotel was more than happy to let us check in late. After checking in we also asked for some area recommendations, which again the staff were more than happy to give us. Our room was really nice and very clean, bed was comfortable and gave us a good night sleep. We stayed for two night and did not hear any noise from the hotel or any of the other guest. In a good location with only a short walk to the shops and restaurant/cinema ! If staying on Edinburgh I would highly recommend this hotel!



Stayed for one night, but very impressed. Receptionist was fantastic, very professional, helpful, good looking and immaculately presented. The room was excellent, very clean, bed comfortable and the shower was fantastic, hot and powerful.

Breakfast well worth the money, with attention to detail and served hot. The location is excellent with just a 10 minutes walk from the station and to Princess Street. I will definitely stay here again.

Great boutique hotel and great value for money. Wish I was staying for longer.



Had a one night stay here. The location is great, right beside a Tram Stop, 2 minute walk to St Andrews Square bus station, 15 min from Waverley Train station and short walk to main shopping and restaurants. Hotel was very clean & comfortable. Good Breakfast. Very friendly staff.



Really nice hotel in a fantastic location for train station, shopping and nightlife. Lovely rooms, with complimentary snacks and lovely Aveda toiletries in the room. Bed was really comfortable, breakfast was also excellent and the staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends visiting Edinburgh.



Visited the hotel and stayed 2 nights having stayed at the Indigo in London. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely rooms, great service, very good location opposite the tram stop and bus routes.
Lovely bar and restaurant is on site if you prefer to stay close for dinner!



I stayed at Hotel Indigo for first time last week, the service from the reception, bar and restaurant staff was faultless. The room was very comfortable and the bed was the comfiest i have ever slept in. The Hotel is situated close to the Playhouse and only 5 minute walk from waverley station, there are several good bars and restaurants in the vicinity. A great Hotel in a good area.
