Great boutique townhouse hotel in New Town. Also close to the trendy Stockbridge area. Rooms have very high ceilings with gigantic windows adding a lot of light and making them feel roomy. We stayed in the main townhouse one floor up from reception. Room wasn't ready when we arrived in the morning after a flight from the US, but they...

I found the Nira Caledonia to be well situated, very pleasantly furnished and with friendly and helpful staff. I jumped off the Edinburgh Airport Link bus at Shandwick Place and 12 minutes of walking later I found myself in a quiet and beautiful part of New Town. The hotel is split across a number of adjoining houses so be sure...

This is a gorgeous hotel, a hidden gem of Edinburgh. It can be counted amongst the better 4 Stars in Edinburgh. The hotel is located away from the main roads and the busy noises of the high streets.

The room looked amazing, it was clean overall (maybe a bit more cleaning in the bathtub would have been goo).

After a pleasant stay a year ago I booked a year in advance in order to attend the festival. I was very specific about the room having twin beds, being in the main building and facing the back.

I got the jacuzzi suite for my girlfriend and I and it was fantastic. Service, room size and quality all 5*. Perfectly situated in a quiet street away from the biz but close enough to walk. Breakfast delivered to room and no extra cost was a great touch. Highly recommended.

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nira Caledonia is surrounded by the cobbled streets and Georgian elegance of New Town, a short stroll from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is a central yet peaceful Edinburgh retreat. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The cuisine at our restaurant is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland and with over 25 Scotch whiskey blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours. With a friendly touch - and a touch of theatre - we welcome independent-minded travellers who prefer to go their own way. Come our way. ... more   less
