Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.

  • Wonderful place to visit so much history into fire fighting and all the old fire engines my two year old grandson loves going been several times now
  • Very nice collection of Fire fighting equipment set in the original Edinburgh Fire Station HQ. We took our kids and they loved it.
  • Really lots of old fire engines and other equipments to see and learn history of fire service s.
  • Really great collection of fire history, many original fire pumps from hand pumped to steam driven, all restored beautifully. My wife and I aren't usually fire history types but it's a wonderful visit. It was a guided tour which was wonderful and informative. I would highly recommend visiting, and it's free!
  • Very interesting from an historic perspective, and a wonderfully genial host who himself was a fire officer. Yes it's free but I was moved to leave a donation.
