GreenLeaders Bronze level
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.

Neighbourhood
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.

I can see what the location is trying for and to be fair is a nice hotel. The trip up 3 flights of stairs was a surprise and the room was quite small. As the room was in the attic it was the warmest place on the planet and opening the window just allowed significant noise. The ro

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments and feedback. I do appreciate the positives that you note. As a Category A listed property we are regrettably unable to install a lift, this is noted on our website and on those of our partner providers. However, every team member is available to provide any assistance required. I was very sorry to read that you did not enjoy breakfast, this is not normal nor indicative of our usual excellent standards. I will share your feedback with the restaurant manager and head chef for the appropriate attention and improvements. Naturally I would be delighted to welcome you back in the not too distant future, please do not hesitate to get in touch directly. Assuring you of our best attention at all times, Chris Lynch General Manager

Staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel restaurant is very well decorated in a classical style, breakfast is of good quality, and the room is cozy. The location however is somewhat less convenient so it is recommended to provide shuttle bus service to and from city centre.

Fantastic boutique hotel on a quiet street though close enough to all City amenities, an ideal location. The decor is marvellous and imaginative. We stayed in the NewTown Suite which is ginormous and very, very comfortable it also contained many thoughtful personalised touches.

Hello. We are visiting on a Saturday in December. Please can you advise where the best place to park is and what the charges are. Thank you.
On street parking is available just outside the hotel and in very close by locations, it's free at the weekends.

Where is the nearest car park? I can't see the one mentioned earlier in York Place on Google maps
I'm really sorry but I have no idea! We caught the train and have used über! The couple that checked in before us had a car and they were told by the hotel where to park! All the staff are lovely so I'm sure they've be able to let you know if you rang! ☺ Sorry I can't be more helpful!

Do any of the rooms have an American style king size beds? Are any of the rooms on the ground floor (therefore no stairs)? Thanks very much!
Our beds are UK standard sizes which do differ from the larger US format. We have two suites that are on the ground floor level. Please do get in touch with us directly at the hotel and we will be able to respond promptly.

"Dine in and order the amazing Chateabriand"
"If you have difficulty with stairs, ask for a lower floor room"
"If stairs are a problem for you, ask for the first floor because it was 64 step to the top one!"
"King Room with a garden was the best."
"Rooms at the rear may be quieter as rooms at the front overlook a cobbled street"
