About

Location.

The Scotsman Hotel is on North Bridge in central Edinburgh, Scotland. The Royal Mile and Princes Street, the capital's main shopping street, are just one block from the boutique hotel. The National Gallery of Scotland and St Giles Cathedral are 5 minutes away by foot, while Edinburgh Castle is just a 10-minute walk away. Waverley Bridge railway station is opposite the hotel. Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is 8 miles away.

Hotel Features.

Called The Scotsman Hotel because it once housed the Victorian offices of The Scotsman newspaper, this majestic building was restored and converted to a boutique hotel in 2001. Original period features blend with contemporary art and furniture in the oak-paneled lobby to provide guests with a grand welcome. North Bridge Brasserie serves regional cuisine and is known for its marble pillars and wood paneling complemented by a dramatic steel floor and staircase. Free WiFi is also available to guests.

Guestrooms.

The Scotsman Hotel's 69 guestrooms combine modern, neutral tones with tweed fabrics. Serving hatches mean that room service need not disturb guests. Rooms have climate control, free WiFi, minibars, safes, tea/coffee making facilities, and coffee tables with inset Edinburgh Monopoly boards.
