In Edinburgh: Staying in Haymarket

I chose to stay in the Haymarket area because it was cheap, not going to lie, I wanted a hotel, with my own room and an en suite for not a lot of money. This hotel is right next to the train station, there is a tram stop and lots of taxi’s outside. Best part is the Airlink stops right outside the station so there are lots of transport options for you.PhoebeGill161231001.jpgThe hotel itself is in three Victorian townhouses so it has a lovely feel of home to it. I chose a single room, it was clean, nicely sized, all be it a small room. With a table and flat screen tv, there really is everything you need to be comfortable. phoebegill161230013There are 4 sockets in the room with two USB outlets in the sockets. So as a solo traveller there is lots of charging possibilities. The bathroom is clean and bright. It had a multi-purpose shower gel/hand soap/shampoo on the wall of the shower, so bring your own. phoebegill161230014Outside the hotel there is a Tesco express a couple of doors down, there aren’t many great restaurants but there was a cafe opposite the hotel called Jacob’s Bakery, it has lots of fresh pastry and cakes with hot food served all day. phoebegill170102030I once again chose my favourite, eggs benedict. It was very tasty, the coffee was good. It could do with a little finessing but it was a good sized meal that set me up for the day and was about £10.  If you are in need of a place to eat and then get on the Airlink back to the airport this is it. phoebegill170102033FYI, I stayed here during New Years so prices might vary. I do recommend this hotel if you can find a good price but be aware that if you book early enough and I do mean quite early you can get a good deal on some more central hotels. It’s a great location if you want all forms of transport and want to walk everywhere.

Happy Travels!
