  • Can’t decide where to book your Edinburgh holiday rental? It’s hard to go wrong with the location of your holiday home in Edinburgh. Most main attractions are within the Old Town and the New Town, but there are convenient tram and bus connections to all corners of the city, and it’s easy to find cheap to luxurious accommodation in the same area of the city. However, rental prices are generally lower outside the city centre of the Old Town and New Town areas. For example, the Grosvenor Suites apartment, located in the West End, is one of the most budget-friendly options for Edinburgh holiday rentals.
  • If you’re a fan of history, the historic Old Town is the place to be, with the famous Royal Mile that leads to Edinburgh Castle, cathedrals, palaces, museums and medieval closes. Even in the Old Town you can still find well-priced holiday rentals like No. 1 Apartments - George IV Bridge, just steps away from the National Museum of Scotland and 5min from the Royal Mile.
  • The New Town is still central and has attractions of its own, but is less touristy and offers better shopping and transport links. A budget-friendly rental like City Retreat Edinburgh is only 10min from the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Royal Mile.
  • For somewhere more trendy, the port of Leith is where “Trainspotting” was filmed and offers independent artists’ boutiques, craft beer pubs, and bakeries. Love Leith is one of many affordable Edinburgh house rentals in Leith.
  • For those visiting Edinburgh for a gastronomic tour, Leith, the New Town and the Old Town are all solid options. Leith is home to some of the city’s best restaurants, including two Michelin-starred ones: Kitchin and Martin Wishart. The Old Town has award-winning local cuisine at Angels with Bagpipes, and whisky at Whiski Rooms, while the New Town has diverse dining experiences such as Baba’s Middle Eastern charcoal grill and Thai at Time 4 Thai.
