This hotel is the designated accommodation of the tour company - so not our choice. We were allocated room 10/1 which has a great view over the rooftops. The downer is that this 3rd level room is accessed by STAIRS only with the last 25 steps very narrow. So watch out if you are elderly or not used to scaling...

The hotel was perfect in every way. We met friends there and both of us had great rooms. It is located in a quiet area close to everything in easy walking distance. The service was great, the restaurant was great and so was the location. We will definitely come back. Thanks, Nira Caledonia for making our stay amazing!

Stayed for two nights, enjoyed full breakfast both mornings and the restaurant one evening. Fantastic meals on all occasions. We stayed in an executive room (no upgrade for us, but that's ok).

Stayed for one night with my wife while out for a night in Edinburgh. Hotel was first class. Lovely room, cosy, super comfy and first class down to earth service. Breakfast was also really, really nice. Only regret is we didn't stay in for dinner as food looked and smelled great.

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
