Districts of Edinburgh

There are actually three districts in Edinburgh city centre, namely New Town, the historic Old Town and Haymarket. The New and Old Town districts are home to many tourist attractions, so if you don't want to walk much, it is advisable to stay in one of these neighborhoods to grab a hotel. Old Town is a bit more historic and New Town is less attractive, but there are more shops in this district. However, both parts of the city have good and reasonably inexpensive hotels. In Old Town you can find nice hotels and apartments at High Street and Grassmarket. Haymarket is more to the west of Edinburgh, so is slightly further away from the sightseeing. However, you often notice this by cheaper prices , but the attractions are still easy to reach on foot or by public transport.
