    Posh but cheap. Generally I doubt the 2 go together in Edinburgh in July.

    try apexhotels.co.uk. Nice modern hotels

    19ths a sunday night. Malmaison were offering rooms at a tenner for Sunday nights, but I don't know if it will still be on in July

    Careful with Apex - The Grassmarket one took my booking at one price, then bumped it up several hundred pounds a few days before I was due.

    Took a long long time for them to refund my card when I told them where to shove it.

    The one they now run in Waterloo Pl has also done that under previous owners aqnd TBH, this is a not uncommon trick amongst the "better" Edinburgh hotels - or they offer you an alternative in some annexe or guest house out in the sticks.

    If you do book one, get firm and unarguable confirmation in advance.

    I can recommend the Holiday Inn next to the Zoo if you can get a reasonable rate using the above link. Rooms tend to be small but the swimming pool is nice and location is handy for buses into town. Breakfast is good and staff very friendly and helpful.

    We stayed at The Caledonian last week. Our room had the most amazing view of the castle. The staff were very friendly and approachable and as always, breakfast was great. Unfortunately, I struggle to eat that early (I do make up for it throughout the day tho LOL)

    It isn't cheap, but as it is a Hilton, I was able to pay with my Tesco points.

    last time i was through in Edinburgh I stayed in an apartment just for the one night. It was just along from the station and great for shopping. It was called Prices street suites, across the road from the apex.
