    Love the Fruitmarket, it's a small space but often has really interesting exhibitions and is always curated excellently. The cafe serves good coffee and admission is free but donations are welcome. If...  more »

    I recognize the error mine, the waiters supersimpaticos and efficient, the place with its art gallery and library, but if not a place so, chairs should be comfortable! Otherwise good infusions (I asked evil and it is my problem) and Wales with good traces. I said, more comfortable chairs

  • Brilliant, exciting gallery in the centre of town. Consistently fascinating exhibitions. It also has a lovely wee cafe - and the gallery shop is brilliant! Such cool stock! Massively recommended.
  • Absolutely the worst exhibition I have ever seen in my life. Of course it is abstract art but literally having a white wall with 2 A4-sized papers with 2 photographed hands is not something I would call art. I have not seen anything interesting at all.
  • A good rotating exhibition space, neat shop, great (if usually busy) cafe
  • Two floors of exhibition, all from one artist at a time. Regular rotations of every exhibit means theres always something new to go and see. Nice cafe and shop also
  • Great exhibitions and book market. The shop is a joy. You must go in the lift (no spoilers)!

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.
