The Scotsman: a hotel in the heart of tradition

The Scotsman: a hotel in the heart of tradition

Classic, elegant, and decorated in Scotland's colours, The Scotsman provides seamless service in a harmonious setting, with tartan patterns in the 69 rooms and wood panelling in the restaurant.

Built in 1905, this architectural jewel is well situated not far from the Royal Mile. Once the seat of the famous Scottish newspaper, The Scotsman, it has kept a few traces of its past, especially in the reception rooms and the spa in the old pressroom. The wellness centre is nearly 2,000 sqm, with seven treatment rooms, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym, and a large indoor pool-a real plus for relaxing after a busy day.
You will find the same comfort in the luxurious rooms with their thick carpets and felts. There's no cutting-edge design here; the rooms are classic and warm, and each is decorated differently. Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Edinburgh Castle. After this slew of accommodating pleasures, time has come for gourmet cuisine, based on local specialities, at the Hide Bar restaurant.
