Elegant Georgian accommodation in the centre of Edinburgh

Comprising two magnificent Georgian townhouses in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, Nira Caledonia is a quirky blend of architectural grandeur and modern interior design. Far from shadowy or grand, expect an easy going, yet smart and comfortable feel where an emphasis is on providing the bounty of Scotland with locally sourced produce in Blackwood's bar and grill. There's also a superb selection of single malt whiskey in the bar and indulgently comfortable accommodation.

The rooms and suites at Nira Caledonia are bright and airy, some with floor-to-ceiling sash windows that flood the rooms with light. Each one is beautifully decorated in sophisticated shades of brown and cream with rich, eclectic furnishings and splashes of colour in scatter cushions. The overriding factor here though, is the warm and friendly service specifically designed to make guests feel at home and totally pampered.

Nira Caledonia is superbly placed, just a ten-minute walk from Princes Street. Take a walk around New Town to appreciate the wealth of Georgian architecture with its cobbled streets, impressive pillars and sandstone block facades. Then, head towards the old part of the city to see the castle, the cathedral, galleries and the boutiques along the Royal Mile.


Enjoy your stay!

Enjoyable stay, pleasant helpful staff

On arrival our bags were taken by a friendly young man who offered to write down the names of some bars and restaurants in the area which he would recommend. This he did and we ate in two restaurants in Stockbridge which is a few minutes walk from the hotel and they were lovely. A big thank you to this Read more[SPLIT]Read lessyoung man!

Great hotel, great location and great service

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel, it is in a great location just a short walk from all the main Edinburgh attractions, the hotel service is really good, the staff are very helpful and welcoming. Room was large and clean, great breakfasts with a good selection - evening meals are also very good.

One night stay in Edinburgh

Stayed one night before our cruise from Rosyth. Chose the Nira Caledonia as its quietly located but within easy reach of the city centre. Booked a garden room to ensure we would have plenty of fresh air if hot in summer and was delightful with a small terrace overlooking the garden which we could access Read more[SPLIT]Read lessdown a few steps. Large room with sitting area, bathroom and separate jacuzzi bath. Dined at the hotel and the food was excellent as was breakfast and the service. Have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Just far enough away from (yet also close to) the tourist track

A very conveniently located hotel on a quiet street with courteous and very able staff.

Very kind and cozy hotel, in a quite area near to the old city.

Very kind and cozy hotel, in a quite area near to the old city. Staff is very kind (a special thanks to Gatis and Rita for their support and assistance). The breakfast is very very good, with fresh products and a wide range of choice. The rooms are comfortable and full of amenities.

Excellent experience

We were greeted at the door and were made to feel most welcome throughout our stay. The room was wonderful, the staff were kind and helpful and we were able to relax and enjoy our stay in Edinburgh. We were given helpful advice and saw much of the city.

High end room and service

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Princess Street in a beautiful area. We stayed for a couple of nights. Room was spacious and well equipped. Really liked the Ruark radio just like we have at home! Service was excellent throughout. Not overly fussy but efficient.

Your personal town house in Edinburgh

The Nira Caledonia is like your own personal townhouse in the centre of Edinburgh. There are not many facilities but this is more then compensated by the location, quality of the rooms and especially, the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Highly recommended.

Fantastic luxury

Super helpful early check in and our suite was fabulous. So many nice touches and great service. Peaceful location in a huge old building, but with all the modern touches you'd expect

Unusual arrival procedure at this SLH with a informal desk operating as a reception area. A little disorganised, however after initial uncertainty , the staff were very helpful and friendly.

A lovely upgrade to a bigger room

Great weekend break

Lovely hotel and service, we had a suite on the ground floor level, room was very clean and spacious. Breakfasts were very good and we also had a very nice evening meal there one night. Hotel is located slightly out of the centre of the city, but this is not a problem, its only a 10 minute walk away Read more[SPLIT]Read lessfrom Princess Street. If you get a chance have a walk around Stockbridge which is local to the hotel, very nice coffee shops, restaurants, shops and a local market - also a very nice walk along the river.

A lovely hotel

A really well appointed hotel. A little bit out of the way but still an easy walk to everything. The room was HUGE !! Really HUGE, and so comfortable. The welcome from staff was lovely and warm and I really felt quite at home. Breakfast was great and the service very good. There are no elevators Read more[SPLIT]Read lesswhich does make getting heavier and multiple bags up and down a bit of a challenge but the staff are really helpful with that. All in all a really lovely hotel and an enjoyable stay.
