The Novotel Edinburgh Centre is a perfectly good hotel, located close to the city centre, New Town and Castle.
We've stayed here twice now, and it's an entirely reasonable Novotel - modern and efficient without any major faults. We've not driven either time, coming by train instead - a 20 minute walk to the station which is fine - so can't comment on parking which looks a bit tricky this centrally. E-mailing ahead meant we could get into our room at 8am having come up by sleeper, which was really helpful. A helpful luggage room makes dropping bags off easy anyway.
Breakfast is OK - we managed to get a decent offer on the web of half price - and free for kids, and, like any Novotel, the ability to have two kids in the same room as two adults means that we'll keep coming back to Novotels time after time. Web prices are much reduced if you get some luck and book far enough in advance - we've got rooms for £55 a night.
The bar's reasonable and there's free wifi in reception and a pool if you want that.
Yes, it's corporate and lacks charm and cuteness. But it's entirely reasonable if you don't plan on spending most of your time in the hotel anyway.
