Edinburgh Luxury Hotels

The Scotsman Hotel

Sitting at the top of North Bridge this is a great location to stay as you are in the heart of Edinburgh very close to the Royal Mile and just a few minutes walk from Princes Street.

Housed in the building which used to be the headquarters of the Scotsman newspaper this is seriously luxurious. The rooms all retain their original features such as wood panelling and have been sound proofed. Many have stunning views over the city.

Inevitably you pay for luxury like this and prices per night range from £300 to £800. It is worth checking though as offers and special rates are sometimes offered.

The Glasshouse

The Glasshouse

Located at the top of Leith Walk the Glasshouse is built behind the facade of the 150 year-old Lady Glenorchy Church. It is a luxury modern hotel and has a large rooftop garden and a balcony with spectacular views of Calton Hill. The city centre is easily accessible from this location with Princes Street just two minutes away.

The old facade has a modern hotel built behind it; rooms are large and as the name would suggest they´ve used lots of glass. The hotel is right next to the cinema, restaurant and bar complex at the top of Leith Walk. Prices range from around £250 a night up to £600.

The Balmoral

You don´t get much more central than the Balmoral which is at 1 Princes Street right next to Waverley train station. This is a top class hotel with 188 suites and rooms offering stunning views of Edinburgh.

It is extremely luxurious with fine dining on offer and a spa with a pool and saunas. Quality like this does not come cheap though and prices range from £150 up to £600.

The Caledonian Hilton

This hotel sits at the foot of Lothian Road just before it meets Princes Street, another very central location. They offer a range of rooms and suites and all the usual facilities you would expect to find including a comfortable bar.

Prices range from £150 for rooms up to £650 for a luxury suite.
