What We Love

  • Feeling as if you have your very own Georgian townhouse in Edinburgh’s glorious New Town
  • No city does high ceilings, vast windows, elegant cornices and plush pelmets quite like Edinburgh, and this hotel is quintessentially Edinburgh
  • Couples love the Nira Caledonia; two of the Jacuzzi Suites offer their own private gardens
  • All bedrooms feel warm and welcoming, far removed from the clinical ambience of some boutique hotels
  • The cozy restaurant and bar are well worth staying in for
  • WiFi is free

What To Know

  • It’s an easy 10-minute downhill walk from Edinburgh’s central thoroughfare of Princes Street, but that means a steep hike back up
  • Some rooms feature Jacuzzis, but the best way to guarantee one is to book a Jacuzzi Suite
  • With no real amenities to speak of, this is not a good place for gym fanatics, spa fans or families
  • Room service is available 24 hours a day
  • The hotel is split into two buildings (No. 6 and No. 10) -- reception is located in No. 6


  •  Babysitting
  •  Bar
  •  Free WiFi
  •  Restaurant

A perfect Edinburgh retreat
Reviewed 3 days ago

A stylish, modern (whilst exploiting and retaining the features of a classic Edinburgh building) hotel Jinan airy and quiet yet central part of New Town. Style without fuss. Reasonably priced and very helpful staff.

Few of us decided to enjoy Edinburg for a couple days after a golf trip. Nira Caladonia fit us perfectly. Great quiet location, top service , delicious food, and a welcoming atmosphere made for a hotel I’d return.

My friend recommended Nira Caledonia and we were very pleased with our accommodations. The concierge was particularly friendly and helpful. The room was lovely with a nice little garden space for our room.

This boutique hotel has a very accommodating staff. There are clean and modern rooms. If you have trouble with multiple flights of stairs, request a lower floor. The restaurant has an excellent breakfast. If it’s not included in your price, the breakfast will cost 15 pounds.
