I stayed here with my teenage son and daughter during the festival. We found the hotel very friendly and comfortable and liked the fact that it was on a quiet street but within walking distance of everything. We stayed in one of the garden suites in the basement. I had requested one extra bed and expected I would share the... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for your feedback and comments. Our team members will be delighted to have your recognition. Our wonderful upmarket location is a great place to be in the city, very close to everything that Edinburgh has to offer, yet far enough to get away from it all.

Our first trip to Scotland we stayed here for four nights in July.

I got the jacuzzi suite for my girlfriend and I and it was fantastic. Service, room size and quality all 5*. Perfectly situated in a quiet street away from the biz but close enough to walk. Breakfast delivered to room and no extra cost was a great touch. Highly recommended.

Celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary at the Nira Caledonia. Room was lovely, exactly what we wanted and very relaxing. Only a short walk to the city centre and at this time of year with the fringe I'd recommend that rather than getting a taxi. It's a great atmosphere with all the music and entertainment. I can't remember all the staff... More

Very enjoyable experience! The staff couldn't have been nicer. We booked a suite with king size bed and roll away bed and had plenty of room for baggage and storing clothes.

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.

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
