This traditional Edinburgh hotel also has ample free parking and sits on a main bus route to the city center. In addition to the breathtaking views of Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and the Firth of Forth, you’ll be within easy reach of the city’s other beauty spots. Just a short trip away, you can find iconic attractions like Holyrood Palace and the Royal Yacht Britannia. You’ll also be able to take in Princes Street Gardens, top class museums and plenty of shops at the heart of Edinburgh.
It’s also a city where there is always a festival happening – and not just the world-renowned comedy festival in late summer. This is just one of the reasons why Edinburgh is the cultural jewel in Scotland’s crown.
The capital is a great place to explore other parts of Scotland, with its excellent road and rail links. From the hilltop position of the Best Western Braid Hills Hotel, you can see all it has to offer.
Please note: Hotel ground floor rooms are only accessible by stairs.
