Edinburgh is a treasure to discover from the New town adjacent to Princes Street to the quirkiness of the Old Town starting at the Royal Mile - both jointly listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You can enjoy boutique shopping in Multrees Walk and a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the West End - or visit the once famous medieval market square at the Grassmarket, which also offers splendid views of the Edinburgh Castle.

From the iconic Edinburgh Castle sitting on its rock above the city, the modernistic buildings of the Scottish Parliament to the educational and fun Dynamic Earth - there truly is something for everyone.

Running parallel to this imposing castle is the historic George Street where some of the city's chicest bars can be found along side designer boutiques and the iconic Standing Order Pub, which is housed inside an old bank.  And nestled between this vibrant streets and the Prince Street Gardens is Rose Street, a charming pedestrian only street which is a million miles away from its original use as servant entrances to the grand houses on both George Street & Princes Street.

Nearby attractions:

  • St Cuthbert Church (imposing 19th century church): 6min / 1.2miles by car or 20min / 1mile by foot
  • Calton Hill with its panoramic views of the city: 11min / 0.5miles by foot
  • Edinburgh Castle: 15min / 0.7miles by foot

Your Hotel

In 2001 this magnificent listed building was transformed into one of the most stylish luxury boutique hotels in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre. The hotel was designed to dominate the Edinburgh skyline and features incredible views of the city´s most famous landmarks. Careful attention has been put towards preserving the magnificent Italian marble staircase as well as the stunning oak panelling, imposing marble pillars and ornate ceilings.

Originally the reception room of the newspaper, the North Bridge Bar and Brasserie features the original oak panelling, a hand carved wooden balcony and imposing marble pillars. The seating area is split into two levels with the balcony offering quieter, intimate seating, with a birds-eye-view below to the buzzing main restaurant and cocktail bar.

One of the city’s landmark buildings, the former Scotsman newspaper offices, carefully converted to retain its Edwardian grandeur - oak panelling, marble staircase, baronial turrets - while given a sheen of low-key, modern luxury.
