Really lovely hotel within easy walking access of everything going on in centre of city but just far enough out to be very peaceful. Hotel staff could not have been more helpful and room and breakfast were excellent.

I was not going to review the hotel on the premise that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it. But our decision to stay at this hotel was largely based on the great reviews by other guests. Perhaps we expected too much but We have stayed in much nicer hotels for less. Firstly we arrived early...

We stayed here for three nights for a business trip and overall enjoyed it very much. The staff was the best part of the hotel, they were incredibly friendly and always willing to help or give suggestions. The building itself is beautiful and so are the rooms, very old world charm and feels like you are back in time. The...

I arrived at this boutique hotel on foot from the Edinburgh waverly station, took about 10mins. As a SLH member, unfortunately there wasn't an upgrade available until my last night.

Staff was the warmest and most attentive and helpful I've ever encountered. A must stay! We were so happy to be situated in a non-touristy cool neighborhood area of Edinburgh where we felt like locals. The Stockbridge neighborhood is just around the corner. Tons of shops and restaurants. A really lovely stay.

Stayed here for a night with my husband in one of the suites. Had a lovely stay, staff friendly and helpful.

Stayed in the top attic room which was beautifully decorated - and had the added bonus of free jelly babies and chocolate buttons so it would have been rude not to eat them! Service was friendly and efficient. And the breakfast used quality produce. It is located about a 10 minute walk from Princes Street in the stunning New Town...

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The decor was beautiful - the reception and restaurant staff were brilliant. However, the room cleaning staff are letting this beautiful hotel down.

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
