History & Story
Located on the cobbled streets of New Town, this romantic boutique property combines the luxury of a top five star hotel with the intimacy and peace of a cosy townhouse. 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.
Nira Caledonia occupies two buildings on Gloucester Place, one of the most exclusive addresses in Edinburgh. It has undergone a refurbishment since being acquired by Nira Hotels and Resorts in April 2011 and opened in January 2012.
