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.
Parliament House Hotel

Parliament House Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 53-room three-pearl Parliament House Hotel is a historic property that dates to the 1760s. It's conveniently located at the foot of Calton Hill along Waterloo Place, mere yards from Princes Street, and is within a 15-minute walk of Waverly Station. Despite its central location, it's tucked away on a quiet, cobbled street, away from the city's hubbub and traffic. Public spaces are traditional, homey, and cozy -- think roaring log fires and high ceilings with ornate moldings -- but the rooms, which range from Singles to Suites, are modern and colorful with big bay windows. They include free Wi-Fi, minibars, coffee- and tea-making facilities, and flat-screen TVs. The hotel delivers good value for travelers who want a central yet quiet location in Edinburgh.
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.
