Edinburgh Hotels Reflect Much of Scottish History

Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, may be the second largest city in the country, but its rich history puts in the top rank of places to visit.

Founded in the 7th century, Edinburgh has a lush history. The skyline is dominated by Edinburgh Castle, situated on top of the extinct volcanic crag that has been known as Castle Rock since at least the 12th century. Visitors to Edinburgh may wish to walk through Old Town, taking in sights such as the Royal Museum of Scotland or St. Giles' Cathedral. Separated from the Old Town by Princes Street Gardens is the New Town. There, vacationers can check out the National Gallery of Scotland or roam the streets enjoying the rich Georgian architecture. Hotels in Edinburgh, too, are just as stunning as the rest of the city!

Edinburgh hotelsPerhaps the most luxurious Edinburgh hotel is The Balmoral, named after historic Balmoral Castle that is the summer home of British royalty. Offering 188 richly appointed rooms, many with views of overlooking Old Town and Edinburgh Castle, The Balmoral is the perfect destination for anyone looking for an opulent stay in Scotland's capital. Even the most basic of rooms at The Balmoral includes two telephone lines, a well-stocked bar and snack basket, broadband Internet and satellite television.

Located on the West End of Edinburgh is the Chester Residence. This fine addition to Edinburgh hotels consists of four Georgian townhouses within walking distance of Edinburgh museums, shops, art galleries and cafes. Each of the 19 suites is equipped with wide-screen television, free Wi-Fi, a dishwasher, and a DVD player. The hotel even offers a DVD library to its guests.

The Blue Rainbow Apartments is another great hotel choice. Constructed in 1880, this six-story Edinburgh hotel is located adjacent to the exclusive Queen Street Gardens and provides stunning views of New Town's amazing architecture. Each room comes with a dishwasher, refrigerator, telephone, microwave and television. They even have opening windows so you can enjoy the fine Scottish air.

This beautiful seat of Scottish life and culture has plenty to offer tourists, and hotels in Edinburgh are waiting eagerly to welcome visitors.
