One day won't be enough! Usher Hall, the Edinburgh Playhouse, the Royal Lyceum Theatre, the Edinburgh Festival City Theatres, and Traverse Theatre all have full schedules with comedies, dramas, dance performances, and concerts in a wide range of interests and genres. Although 'spooky' tours of Edinburgh run all year round, fall is a great time to book one of these scary excursions. Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood House, and other historic sites are open year-round, too.
When booking an Edinburgh hotel, there are many to consider. If luxury is your game, the Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street is a wonderful destination. Close to shopping, theatres, and sightseeing, the Balmoral will fill all your expectations nicely. Other fine hotels include the Scotsman, located in the gorgeous old Scotsman newspaper building, the Royal British Hotel, and the Glasshouse, a modern alternative.
If you prefer the familiarity of a chain hotel, there is a Best Western, a Ramada and a Sheraton. There are plenty of fine smaller hotels throughout the city, such as the Clarendon, the Bonham, and Frederick House Hotel, which provide great atmosphere and service.
If you’re more frugal, there are many reasonably-priced guest houses and bed and breakfast hotels in the Edinburgh area, whether you want to stay in the city centre, or the outskirts.
Edinburgh is a beautiful city, and has no lack of lovely, comfortable accommodations.
