Luxury hotels in Edinburgh
Fondly dubbed the 'Athens of the North', Edinburgh is a city that combines great history, stunning architecture and a cultural heritage that's the envy of cities the world over. Whether visiting during the intoxicating buzz of the Edinburgh Festival in August, or when the city retreats into its Gothic past in deep winter, why not stay in one of the many luxury hotels Edinburgh has to offer.
The Balmoral Hotel
One of the most central luxury hotels Edinburgh has to offer, the Balmoral sits regally in the heart of the city, minutes from Waverley railway station and the main shopping area, Princes Street. Crowned by a majestic clock tower, it's a hotel that provides sumptuous comfort in spades. Many of the hotel's 188 suites and rooms have views towards Edinburgh Castle and the fabulous Old Town.
A striking five star design hotel, as colourful as it is fashion conscious, the Hotel Missoni is at the cutting edge of luxury accommodation. You don't have to be a model to stay here but you'll feel like one. Generously sprinkled with Euro chic, the restaurant Cucina is one of the best in the capital, serving high-end Italian cuisine.
The Scotsman Hotel
The former home of Edinburgh's national Scotsman Newspaper, this early 20th-century building was transformed into a luxury five star hotel in 2001, with great care taken to preserve the original features. Each of the 69 suites and rooms is unique, and among the state of the art modern facilities, including spa and fitness suite, the Scotsman hotel retains a fabulous sense of history.
