The Best Western Braid Hills Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh, which enjoys a delightful, elevated vantage point overlooking the city. Just 2. 5 miles from the city center itself, you'll be in the enviable position of having its many attractions nearby, whilst being away from all the hustle and bustle. This traditional Edinburgh hotel also has ample free parking and sits on a main bus route to the city center.
