Stayed a couple of nights during our 10-days in Scotland. Situated in quieter residential townhome area about 1/4 mile from the tourist areas and the castle in New Town. Easy walk to attractions. We had booked early and had a suite on 1-floor that opened out to a patio on the internal courtyard. The room was very large with a... More

I just returned from a whirlwind trip of Ireland and Scotland and the Nira Caledonia was one of my favorite stops! From the moment we pulled up to the stylish gray exterior I was excited. I love that the hotel feels so "Edinburgh". The color palette of the hotel is classy- bronze, golds, and grays/blacks. I loved the high ceilings... More

We stayed here two nights at the end of our Ireland/Scotland trip. It has a perfect location being close enough to the city center to get anywhere quickly but still maintains the intimate and personal atmosphere of a beautiful boutique hotel. The staff here was amazing especially Marek at reception, Joe the bartender, and Muray in the mornings. The last... More

We have just arrived back from a 5 day break in Edinburgh, and felt that we had to write a review to say just how good this hotel is. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive, nothing was to much trouble for them. Our room was small, but we knew that when we booked, it was tastfully decorated, large flat... More

Stayed at the Nira in August. Very good location, old-world charming architecture, terrific breakfast, and incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The room we had was small, which doesn't disappoint me for an old European hotel, but very nicely decorated. The only negative about my experience is we had a room on the top floor; we would call it the fourth... More

So much is good. The rooms are well appointed. The people are nice. The location is fine. Our garden view was lovely. But, for a SLH designation, there is much lacking. The walls are paper thin. The bathrooms are ridiculously small. Everything really is cramped. There is no individual air control in the rooms. And the front desk is only... More

The location of this boutique hotel is in itself worth the price. We had a suite which was clean, comfortable, with a private garden. The hotel restaurant, Blackwoods Bar & Grill, had been recommended and certainly didn't disappoint. If you're looking for something a little bit special with character and a real feel of the historic surroundings, this is the... More

Friendly & helpful staff, Yes, the Reception is tiny and a bit cramped, however, the check-in was quick & efficient and I was able to re-group over a lovely pot of tea in the lounge while they did a final inspection on the room as I was probably checking in a tad early. This didn't seem to present a problem... More

Currently staying at the hotel & leaving today. We stayed in the jacuzzi room with private garden and it was fab ! We ordered room service and food was Great, breakfast too. Myself and my husband said we'd defiantly come again. Have stayed at other hotels in Edinburgh and this I'd the best one yet. And not to far from... More

Lets start from the beginning. The outside of the building is very grand - situated in a quieter part of Edinburgh and in what looks like a mix of residential / hotel accommodation. Just a short taxi ride from Waverley station. The entrance looks small and that it is. When checking in be prepared to move around the reception desk... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighborhood 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 neighborhoods. 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.
