We'll be in Edinburgh for 3-4 nights in September. We'd like to find an Apt-Hotel or Hotel with kitchenettes for our stay. Our budget is up to $400 a night. A central location is important but I would prefer not to be right in the thick of things unless the hotel is wonderful. I'm definitely looking forward to the Royal Botanic Gardens. Would that area be too far away from Royal Mile, etc.?
We found a wonderful place on Airbnb for our stay in Dornach. Has anyone used Airbnb in Edinburgh and stayed somewhere that they would recommend? I noticed that Booking.com also has apartment rentals.
I searched for Hotel ideas in this forum area and found Hugh's Place Grassmarket and Hotel Ceilidh Donia recommended. A friend recommended the Balmoral, the Waldorf Astoria, The Sheraton, and the Glasshouse. None have kitchenettes and suites are very pricey.
