It's been almost a year since I visited Edinburgh with my family. I was looking for a hotel in the city center and Hilton Edinburgh met all my requirements. Edinburgh Castle, Holyroodhouse palace, Calton Hill, the Summit etc. were all in 15-20 mins walking distance. Also, there were lots of dining options available around the Hilton Hotel. When we checked-in, Albert helped us to check in quickly. He also gave a Pirates coloring book to my kid. Our room was really spacious and very clean. My kid started coloring his Pirates book once we reached the room, which helped us to settle down things in the room. The electrical outlets had USB charging ports which really helped us as we were carrying only one universal adapter on the trip. I really liked the way Hilton thinks and takes care of every guest's needs, both adults and children. Please don't miss to take advantage of continental breakfast. The breakfast includes a wide variety of cereals, fruits, coffee, English tea, porridge, red beans etc. for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Hilton typically charges separately for the breakfast and it is your choice if you want to take breakfast or not. But I would highly recommend you to try it and I can assure you, you will not regret it! Edinburgh is a very beautiful and a lively city, and our stay at Hilton really made us feel to visit the city again in the nearby future. Can't wait to visit Hilton and Edinburgh again. Fingers crossed!
