A modern, comfortable and stylish setting for a city break in Scotland’s capital, the Edinburgh Capital Hotel offers a warm welcome for all.
It’s ideal, for anyone coming to the city to soak up culture at the world famous Edinburgh International Festival, to see a rugby match at Murrayfield, or simply to experience all the best that Edinburgh has to offer.
Central Edinburgh is easily accessible via a regular and quick bus service, or by taxi or car, yet the Edinburgh Capital Hotel is among Edinburgh’s best hotels for peace and tranquillity – as well as offering a fantastic view across Fife and to the west of the city.
The restaurant is called the Westview for good reason – from there you can look out and enjoy the sight, while you savour a meal, snack or drink in comfortable surroundings. Guests can also take advantage of an executive leisure facility, with gym, swimming pool and sauna.
With family rooms, a ‘young diner’s menu’ in the restaurant and even a children’s leisure club in the gym, this is a family friendly hotel close to Edinburgh Zoo and Deep Sea World, to Edinburgh Castle or Our Dynamic Earth – as well as a host of other attractions kids will love.
If you’re looking to explore more of Scotland, or further afield, your stay at the Capital Hotel Edinburgh can be just one stop on your journey – with the airport, railway station and major road network all within easy reach.
