    This Hotel is central located. Our room Nr. 312 was very noisy of traffic. Even when you close the windows. It was clean and furniture and bathroom were new renovated. I can recommend the Edinburgh City Hotel if you get a quiet room.More

    Southside & Holyrood
    Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
    university buildings in Southside, the sort of
    neighbourhood that supports a long string of
    second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
    just a few pounds. In August the student population is
    replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
    for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
    arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
