Malmaison Edinburgh, hotel in Edinburgh

This boutique hotel sits on the banks of the Forth in Leith, and boasts a state-of-the art gym, free parking and a stylish bar. Edinburgh city centre is just 10 minutes’ drive away.

Breakfast fine. I have previously stayed in Malmaison EDINBURGH CITY. I expected to have booked the same place To my surprise I was told I was in the wrong place!! And I had booked Malmaison EDINBURGH which is in LEITH!! This is very confusing perhaps you can refer the two establishments as St Andrews Square and LEITH to save confusion and disapointment

FAQs about hotels in Edinburgh









A Feast for the Senses

A city of heritage, heart and of course Hogmanay, Scotland’s capital is vibrant and edgy. Whether or not you come for one of its many festivals, Edinburgh is quite simply a feast for the senses.

The wealth of Edinburgh sights ranges from Holyrood Palace to the Botanical Gardens, Princes Street to the Royal Mile. Overseeing them all is majestic Edinburgh Castle. Be there at sunset on a clear day to see the city below bathed in a warm, orange glow. Simply stunning.

Wandering the streets, the smell of fish and chips wafts by, with the unique twist of salt ‘n’ sauce – a must-try variation on this favourite dish. Follow it up with a smooth whisky and you’ll start to feel like a local.

For a taste of Scottish culture, a kilt-wearing busker often plays the bagpipes on Waverley Bridge, while traditional folk music can be heard in some Old Town pubs. Complete your stay with a rugby match at Murrayfield or a round at one of the city’s 14 golf clubs, and you’ll have the true Edinburgh experience.

Whether you are looking for hotels near Edinburgh Airport or accommodations in the city center, Booking.com has a great range to choose from.

    SO much to do in Edinburgh so plan accordingly. Many sites to visit, so the bus tours are a must in order to get around the town in the fastest way. Plenty of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants to pass the time, entertainment abound also. If you like walking, too, the inclines up to the castle will give you a daily workout. Would visit again in a heartbeat

    Edinburgh is a stunning city and one we found easy to navigate. It hold so much history and the preservation of its history is outstanding. Do book Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle tickets ahead to avoid queues. Hiking Arthur's Seat takes some time so plan for it. Spend some time up on Calton Hill ... views are magnificent and so much to see. Also there are wonderful eateries and restaurants everywhere ... do remember to book your table ahead as it is a busy city with many visitors. We enjoyed Howie's and LuckenBooths. Overall lots to see and do!!

    I was here for a concert but enjoyed walking around the Old Town for the great atmosphere and discovering all the cute buildings, streets and alleys (Victoria Street and The Royal Mile are a must-see). Most historical buildings are within walking distance. The Edinburgh Castle is a must-visit. The public transportation is excellent and very easy to use.

    Edinburgh is a beautiful city full of independent businesses and plenty to see and do. It’s perfect for any kind of hobby you have; shopping, walking, people watching or reading in cafes etc. Walking around Edinburgh with the faint sound of bagpipes playing in the streets, artists drawing caricatures, a lovely man with an owl you can hold, there really are so many different ways to create memories there! I highly recommend the Ghost Bus tour, visiting the castle and cathedral, and Frankenstein’s Bar!

    You have to check in at the pub, which is only around the corner from the hotel. Absolutely loved the staff! They were ever so accommodating, especially with complimentary drinks at arrival. Loved the location with it being a good walk to Edinburgh City Centre - where there was a plethora of independent cafes and bakeries selling all sorts of goodies. When you're done exploring Edinburgh, then the bed doesn't go amiss, along with the en suite facility. To reiterate, a great family owned establishment at a great location.

    The location in New Town by St. Andrews Square was amazing!!! We were right by a bunch of great restaurants and a Sainaburys Local. All the hop -on -hop off buses start there so that was very convenient. It was also a fairly quick walk to old town / Edinburgh Castle. The vibe of the room and the windows were great!
