Central Edinburgh parking

Visiting edinburgh later this month for three nights , we are staying in the Travelodge on St Marys Street.

the hotel has a car park on site but cannot guarantee us a place as it is pay and display therefore first come first served.

I would appreciate any info regarding where in the area we can safely park a minibus should the hotel car park be full.Parking would only be required between apx 5.30pm until 10.00 am each day

Thanks in advance

There is a car park close to John Lewis/St James Centre.

Diagonally opposite that Travelodge there is the NCP car park - St Johns Hill. It is near the corner of St Johns Hill and Holyrood Road. The phone number is 0131 229 2870 and the postcode EH8 9UQ

Remember that on street parking is free between 6.30p.m and 8.30a.m so you may just wish to pay for an hour at night and 1 - 2 hours in the morning as that would work out cheaper. I think that the street parking in and around St Marys Street is either £1.60 - £2 per hour.

if you use St Johns car park check with travelodge as you may get a discount by staying in that hotel.
