Fraser Suites Edinburgh

Fraser Suites Edinburgh Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The elegant upscale Fraser Suites is located just off Royal Mile in Edinburgh's historic quarter. Its 75 rooms range in style and size but are decorated with a modern elegance that livens up the 130-year-old building. Rooms come with microwaves, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Larger suites have two-burner stoves. The Broadstreet Bistro & Bar combines charm and sophistication, and serves meals and drinks all day. The hotel also offers in-room dining. A small, well-designed fitness center is a notable perk.
The Scotsman Hotel

The Scotsman Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Scotsman is an upscale historic boutique located right off the Royal Mile, in the heart of the Old Town. The building is a former printing house, and many of the original features are preserved, including an Italian marble staircase, ornate ceilings, and oak paneling. Luxurious amenities include a relaxing spa complete with an indoor pool, a large fitness center with classes and personal trainers, and a wonderful brasserie. But the individually decorated rooms have inconsistent quality and decor -- while some have beautiful wood paneling, ornamental fireplaces, and great city views, others have blander furnishings and lack wow factor. However, they all have luxurious amenities, such as Egyptian cotton linens, Highland Aromatic toiletries, and flat-screen TVs.
The Witchery by the Castle

The Witchery by the Castle Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Witchery by the Castle is a four-pearl, gothic-style property at the top of the Royal Mile in the Old Town, at the base of the Edinburgh Castle. Essentially a restaurant (well, two actually) with some suites attached (nine), there are few communal spaces -- the hotel is a favorite among those seeking seclusion. The rooms are large, ornately designed, and filled with antiques, but be aware that the hotel lacks such large-scale amenities as a fitness center, business center, spa, and even Wi-Fi. It excels in the small touches -- slippers, chocolates, Champagne, and nightly turndown service by an attentive staff.
The Carlton Hotel

The Carlton Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Carlton Hotel's biggest selling point is its location -- right in the heart of Edinburgh within walking distance of pretty much everything. This also means, however, that noise can be a big problem in some of the rooms, though these are spacious and have flat-screen TVs and coffee/tea facilities. Although in need of a refresh, spa facilities are impressive and the lounge bar is a pleasant place to unwind. Generally, despite some renovations in the lobby, much of the upper-middle-range property remains dated with some areas feeling unkempt. Reasonable rates do seem to reflect this, though for a lot more polish for a little more cash, check out The Scotsman across the street.
Stay Central Hotel

Stay Central Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Stay Central Hotel is a hip, contemporary hotel with an upmarket hostel feel housed in a 17th-century building in the center of Old Town Edinburgh. Although the immediate area feels a little rough around the edges, most of the city center's main tourist attractions are well within walking distance. The 37 rooms at this mid-range property have funky decor, along with iPad docks and free Wi-Fi, while private dorms can be kitted out for parties. With a lively hotel bar and young, up-for-it clientele, noise is inevitable, especially on weekends -- so for a similar though slightly quieter vibe, guests could take a look at the nearby Grassmarket Hotel.
Jurys Inn Edinburgh

Jurys Inn Edinburgh Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Jurys Inn Edinburgh is a mid-range, 186-room hotel located next to Edinburgh's main train station. Set on a relatively quiet road around the corner from the Royal Mile, the location is excellent for exploring the city center on foot with the castle just 10 minutes away. Although a bit dated in parts, interiors are well-maintained and rooms are perfectly adequate with flat-screen TVs and tea kettles -- some even have great views of Calton Hill. Besides some soundproofing issues between rooms, this is a solid all-around hotel with rates that are hard to beat for the location.
Grassmarket Hotel

Grassmarket Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Grassmarket Hotel is a mid-range, 42-room property brimming with quirky character and fun contemporary style. Its Grassmarket square setting is both picturesque and super-convenient for exploring the city, with almost everything well within walking distance. While some rooms are tiny and can have issues with noise, Tunnock's teacakes and bathroom speakers are pleasing signature touches. While it's possible to bag a real bargain -- especially considering the location -- rates and vibe are similar to the Stay Central Hotel, which is also worth checking out.
