Fraser Suites Edinburgh8.3/10 ratingout of 12 reviewsOld Town · $150 avg price/ night
The Fraser is very well located, just a sidestreet from the Royal Mile opposite St Gile’s Cathedral. Discounted parking is available nearby. The rooms need some updating including the glass in the windows from which a cold draft could be felt. The room heater worked well but was noisy. Beds had good sheets, not so good pillows. Bathrooms were clean. Staff was excellent.

Ten Hill Place, BW Premier Collection9/10 ratingout of 36 reviewsNewington · $85 avg price/ night
Srsly excellent from stepping out of my taxi- and I was high maintenance. Six pieces of luggage bc moving to Scotland. Diverse staff. Asked bell hop about tipping and he gave me the exact rundown I needed from an industry perspective. Wanted to be left alone with my in my beautiful room and I was, super quiet despite housekeeping in other rooms. Black out curtains for jet lag. Went down to model an outfit for concierge (trying to figure out casual pub-wear for a first date) and she was super helpful in distinguishing my happy hour cocktail wear vs pub. Even the coffee at breakfast was basically the only American style drip/filter coffee I’ve found anywhere in Edinburgh so far. I really can’t say enough good things about this place, or its location.
