nice hotel in the Grassmarket Nice large quiet room - we were worried about staying in a busy neighborhood, but it was very quiet at the back of the hotel where we stayed. We used the pool at the sister hotel next door & also enjoyed the sauna.

Excellent location Although it is in an excellent location the street signage could be more visible. On our visit in May we found the room to be very hot with no way of controlling the temperature.

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotel Hotels in Edinburgh

There’s no better way to tap the rich seam of history flowing through Scotland’s capital than with a stay in one of Edinburgh’s historic hotels.

From castles and palaces to monuments to ruins, the city’s treasures from the past all vie for your attention here.

Choose from accommodation in historic buildings like the Roxburghe in Charlotte Square or The Balmoral on Princes Street. Some date as far back as the 16th century. Admire period features from turrets to stained glass windows and thoughtful details that reveal glimpses of a hotel’s former life.

The city has been – and occasionally still is – home to royalty. It’s fostered intellectual visionaries and literary greats alike . And there’s an altogether more mysterious past just waiting to be explored too...

Step Back in Time in Historic Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s attractions tell tales spanning centuries.

Discover ancient relics in iconic Edinburgh Castle, uncover darker episodes of the city’s past with a fright-filled ghost tour or head underground with a visit to The Real Mary King’s Close.

Delve deeper into Edinburgh’s literary history with a trip to the Writers Museum, housed in a narrow wynd linking the Royal Mile to The Mound; don’t forget to look down where you'll spot beautiful quotes from renowned Scottish poets etched into the paving stones.
