I have walked to the Hilton. Wouldn't recommend that if its wet or dark as there are no footpaths just grass verges for part of the way but from memory its no more than 10 minutes walk.

There is also the Holiday Inn at Corstorphine, you can take a cab from there, its only a couple of miles or take the Airport bus which stops nearly outside. Also a bit further into town the Premier Inn at Morrisson Street which will probablbly be cheaper then the bus or taxi.

The Hilton at the airport is very close (approx 300m) to the terminal so walkable but it can be expensive.

I would not limit yourself to just around the airport as very early in the morning a cab can get you from the centre of town in 20 minutes for under 20 pounds. If you can get something cheaper there then at least you can go out at night for a meal and a look around.

joeintheuk - you must have come out and turned left past the taxi rank and walked along the vehicle exit road. If you had turned right out of the airport building and taken the shorter route thare are pavements all the way

Given the centre of Edinburgh is only 20 minutes from the airport & there are frequent buses between the two even at night, there's little need to stay near the airport

At the start of our recent trip, we stayed at the Mariott in Edinburgh which was very close to the airport and a bus goes right by (the 100 airport express). At the end, we stayed at a b & b in Inverkeithing so we'd be close for our early morning flight out of Edinburgh.
