We had reservation secured in May through British Airways using avios and cash. Within an hour before boarding our flight to Edinburgh I received an email advising me to call BA. BA told me the Nira had cancelled our reservation. Only one other property was offered as a substitute, this hotel was unsatisfactory in both location and quality. As I...

Stayed here with my partner for two nights for our first valentines together. Most amazing hotel with gorgeous attention to detail. Nothing was too much for the staff.

Lovely hotel situated in a beautiful area of Edinburgh. Quiet, cobbled streets surround the hotel yet Princes street is only a ten minute walk away. Friendly but not overbearing staff. Great breakfast. Overall a real delight of a break. Thank you.

This was our first visit to Edinburgh and it's a beautiful city. The Nira Caledonia is situated in the 'New Town' part of the city. Discreetly positioned in a cobbled Georgian terrace you can almost hear the horse and carriages that must have been driven past in days gone by. Due to a late flight we had missed dinner but...

What a gem of a hotel. Stayed in the executive rooms with the bed, breakfast and evening meal package. We are seasoned travellers and we were very impressed with this establishment. The meals were second to none and our waiter - Rolands - couldn't do enough for us. This all added to a really pleasant stay. Thank you all staff!

Some of my favorite boutique hotels have been small parcels converted from private home to hospitality space, and I assume that's what we have here.

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
