Close to the Castle, Princes Street and the theatre district, Edinburgh City Hotel is a quiet, friendly hotel with a fantastic location in Edinburgh city centre.
Whether you want to see the sights; catch a show or simply explore the capital’s shopping opportunities, today’s Big Deal with Edinburgh City Hotel makes it easy peasy.
Victorian building, modern comfort
Built in 1879 as a hospital, the original building has been transformed into a very appealing, modern hotel with 52 comfortable bedrooms.
All guest rooms are decorated to the same high standard but each has its own character and, of course, views.
Edinburgh City Hotel isn’t a chain and that individuality shines out from the rooms to the staff.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to have an overnight stay in a double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a two course meal in the evening.
As well as free WiFi, rooms feature a laptop safe, ensuite bathroom, hair dryer, digital TV and hot drinks facilities.
Fresh, local produce
The menu in the hotel’s Simpsons Restaurant changes with the seasons. All dishes are prepared to order, using as much fresh and local produce as possible.
Typical starters might include the salmon, spinach and coriander fishcake or the kale salad with broccoli, black olives, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.
The steak pie, beer battered haddock and pan-fried pork loin steak served with black pudding and grain mustard mash all have many fans.
Also popular are desserts like the baked vanilla cheesecake and the salted chocolate and caramel torte.
With 334 ‘Excellent’ ratings on TripAdvisor, Edinburgh City Hotel is obviously doing something right. In fact, if recent reviews are anything to go by, they are doing pretty much everything right:
‘Great location, staff, restaurant, room and price – the whole package.’
‘Brilliant hotel, good location, value for money.’
‘Friendly and convenient.’
Vouchers are valid, seven days a week, until the 18th of February 2015. If a trip to Edinburgh is on your horizon, today’s Big Deal with Edinburgh City Hotel offers a warm welcome, great food and a splendid location.
