We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming and well located boutique hotel. Outstanding service, knowledgable and friendly staff, great selection for breakfast. Situated in the Stockbridge neighborhood, we explored the weekend market, had a pint in some cozy pubs and dinner in several excellent restaurants all a short distance from the hotel. We do a fair bit of walking,... More

We've just returned from a lovely two night stay at the hotel. We had one of the petite rooms in the basement and whilst it was a little on the small side (could've guessed from the name!), it was more than adequate for a couple of nights and was beautifully decorated. The little garden terrace was a nice bonus although... More

Beautiful traditional hotel with very helpful staff, that could help us with recommendations to restaurants and also places to visit , such as Edradour whiskey distillery (Scotland's smallest distillery, well worth a visit!) Nira Caledonia had a tasting breakfast menu, which also became a quite nice restaurant at the evening. The rooms were nice and clean, the only withdrawal were... More

The furnishings in the room were very smart, as were the features in the bathroom, but for 300€ a night (peak season) it was a ridiculously small space for a couple. There was one tiny wardrobe, about 50 cm wide, with 6 hangers. There was no space to keep 2 suitcases, instead they provided fold.out stands to put them on.... More

Hello Damovski Well this is difficult! Let's address this and see where we end up. It's hard to know which room you stayed in as you don't mention but it's clear it was one of our "petite double's". Now with out sounding rude, these are small rooms hence the name. I'm always slightly annoyed when guests have a choice of... More

Just back from a 2 night stay in Edinburgh. The Nira Caledonian is a fantastic little hotel right near the centre, prefect for sight seeing. Being a listed building it has lots of character and is decorated to a really high spec. We stayed in the petit room which was small but had everything you needed and more. The room... More

My family and I stayed at Nira in July on our UK trip from Australia. It was the first time we had brought my two young sons to the UK and with one of them having severe allergies we were somewhat paranoid about where we stayed and how we would be catered for. When booking we were told there would... More

I acknowledge our experience was a bit different. We needed a room for three people and so the price for the suite was rather expensive in this little boutique hotel. The room was very nice. Both the bathroom and bedroom have been updated and have a very modern, classy look--it was just pricey. The shower in the jacuzzi tub leaks... More

Hello Bradsd1 Yes your stay was a slightly different one , working 3 people into 1 room but I'm glad we managed it, in August all rooms everywhere in Edinburgh are at premium rate due to the festival and we do charge for extra beds so this will have added to your bill. We like to think we are central... More

We just returned from visiting Edinburgh and stayed at the wonderful Nira Caledonia for a few days. Our room was very comfortable, and the entire hotel was beautifully restored. The staff were amazingly attentive and knowledgable about Scottish & Edinburgh history which made our visit very memorable.

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
