Part of the Old Town, it is minutes from major attractions and destinations including the Royal Lyceum and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, making it a good option for business or leisure travelers alike.

The Novotel Edinburgh Centre boasts many amenities that include pet-friendly policies, a currency exchange desk, and concierge services. You can check-in online and find plenty of free and paid parking, and then there are the leisure options. Enjoy the use of the indoor pool facility, the modern fitness center, and the wellness facilities. There are business services and meeting rooms, too.

The 180 smoke-free rooms range from standard to suites, and yet all feature large and private bathrooms with signature toiletries. The décor is low-key and modern, with a sitting area in each room as well as a workspace, free Wi-Fi, and a high-end entertainment system. There are hot beverage stations in every room, too.

Dining in the hotel includes the signature international restaurant that serves three meals daily, as well as the hotel bar. Nearby are many restaurants and cafes, including Castle Terrace, Passorn, and Timberyard.

The Novotel Edinburgh Centre is truly a city-center property and puts you just 10 minutes, on foot, from such famous spots as the University of Edinburgh, Greyfriars Walk, the Royal Mile, the King’s Theater, and Grassmarket, among many other sites. It is only 25 minutes from the airport, as well.
