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.

  • As luck would have it, I passed this statue almost every day for three weeks while I was in Edinburgh. It's very non-assuming. It is in the same parking lot as the Tesco Express, right around the corner from Cafe Piccante, and kitty-corner to The Conan Doyle. I wouldn't have noticed it but for the fact that early on I was glued to Google maps and it was like, "BTWs, if you look on not your phone it's just to your left..." Nice, easy stop and not out of your way if you're already on Princes Street near North Bridge.
  • Beautiful statue. Very good details. Good to see him back again. However there was a lot of litter and rubbish which spoilt it a bit. We should take better care of our heroes! Well worth a visit though.
  • 福爾摩斯迷可以來跟這個別具意義的雕像朝聖一下
  • This an important milestone for fans of Sherlock Holmes, to mark the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

  • A beautiful sculpture, Conan Doyle's Pub in front of you, but not with people parking:)
