In a city where the striking contrast between dramatic medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town has led to UNESCO World Heritage Site designation, hotels with design in mind are never far away in Edinburgh.
Like the city’s fascinating museums and galleries, many design hotels in Scotland’s capital can be found in listed buildings, like the Waldorf Astoria Caledonian Hotel, as well as state-of-the-art new structures that include the G&V Royal Mile Hotel.
During your stay you’ll find historic period features carefully balanced with contemporary touches inside and out. Juxtaposing old and new is an Edinburgh specialty.
