The Caledonian Hotel,

The Caledonian Hotel, with Edinburgh Castle in background, is the best hotel in the city. If you can afford to stay there, it is absolutely the place for a great visit to all the tourist sites. It is within walking distance of all the most popular restaurants, shops, concert halls and theatres - a great advantage during the Festival when the streets are choked with traffic and visitors. Not only is there the International Festival (drama, opera, music, ballet from around the world), but there are four other festivals that run concurrently --

The Film Festival (one of the largest in the world, open to the public)

The Book Festival (lots of famous writers)

The Jazz Festival

The Folk Music Festival

and last but not least, the Fringe Festival -- a marvellous free for all with thousands of oddball performances, plays, revues, by professional and amateur groups from around the world. There is a round-the-clock schedule of events for 2 weeks of wild and wacky fun.
