The Best Hotels In Edinburgh (Scotland) For Business Travelers, 2020

Edinburgh (Scotland)

Holding on to the place as the capital since the 15th century, Edinburgh is a cultural, financial and political center of Scotland. It is one of the most popular places in the United Kingdom, offering a pleasant blend of the new and the old. While the city offers you the experience of authentic Scottish social systems, there is plenty for tourists, especially those coming from abroad, to explore which go beyond the local culture and lifestyle. The natural scenic beauties and infrastructural developments are some of those things.

Edinburgh needs to be experienced closely and patiently. But, to ensure that this happens the way it should, you need to start planning early. The first thing you need to consider and get done with is accommodation. A good hotel is what you need for a comfortable vacation, but selecting one can be a tedious task. You will have to judge a hotel on a number of parameters such as infrastructure, public reviews, in-room services, and the quality of staff. I have shortlisted a few hotels which perform well on these parameters.

  1. The Witchery by the Castle
    Address: 352 Castlehill, Edinburgh EH1 2NF, United Kingdom
    A poised property close to the historic heart of the city, The Witchery by the Castle is a delightful experience. Its utterly sumptuous, upscale interiors will catch you off-guard, but things will get better as you get to know this place better. The rooms carry an old world vibe, with heavy use of silks, paintings, and wood. Even bathrooms have been decorated in alignment with the theme. There is a restaurant incorporating similar interior elements and serving exquisite local dishes to keep you happy. While there are not many in-house facilities, you will not nevertheless be disappointed by what you get.
  2. Rock House
    Address: 28 Calton Hill, Edinburgh EH7 5AA, United Kingdom
    First of all, Rock House has a fabulous location, which is close to Calton Hill and many notable restaurants and shops. Second of all, the in-house staff is trained and very polite and will cater to all your needs whenever you so desire. Third of all, the interior is quite dramatic yet simple and still manages to retain the original 19th-century beauty. So far as your rooms are concerned, they are well-appointed with iron bedsteads, lovely wallpapers, log fires, and smart bathrooms. However, it is to be noted that the place is self-catering.
  3. Old Town Chambers Luxury Serviced Apartments

    This property is decked out in brilliance from top to bottom. Its architectural design features timber, glass, stone, and brick ceilings.

Lack of an in-house dining facility is a downer, but the same has been compensated by the presence of exceptional restaurants and cafes nearby.
