Location Is Everything at Grassmarket Hotel

Easily Accessible

Grassmarket Hotel is centrally located in the old town part of Edinburgh, so guests who want to see it all will enjoy staying here. It is close to Edinburgh Townhouse, which is a B&B that offers some amenities, but not nearly as many as visitors will find at Grassmarket Hotel. This hotel is also a great spot for those who are coming into Edinburgh on business.

Visit the Castle or Royal Mile

In Edinburgh, one of the top places to see is the castle. Guests who stay at Grassmarket Hotel can take approximately 420 steps to reach the front gates of the castle, or take 334 steps to start walking down the Royal Mile. Nearby guests will also find the Grassmarket, which locals call the hub of Old Town Edinburgh. There are festivals, markets, and other exciting happenings at that location throughout the year. Visitors can take a bus or taxi from the airport to get to this property.

Ask at Reception

Guests can stay in for the evening and order room service, featuring fresh local favorites that are sure to tempt any appetite. The hotel also offers packed lunches for guests to take with them if they are rushing to a business meeting or to catch a sightseeing tour. Our reception staff is happy to make recommendations of places to visit, whether guests want to stop by a local bar, dine on tasty Scottish favorites, or see the famous castle.

Room Options

Choose from snug or comfy rooms for up to four guests. The comfy rooms have a little more space, while the snug rooms are ideal for one or two people. Each of the guest rooms at Grassmarket Hotel features an iPod dock and in-room tea and coffee with the Scottish favorite, Tunnock’s Tea Cakes. The bathrooms contain rain showers with pleasant bath products that will brighten up any guest’s morning. For convenience, the rooms also contain a magnetic map of the city. Free WiFi Internet access makes it easier to stay connected while on the go.

The Bottom Line

With its modern flair and unique touches, Grassmarket Hotel offers an experience like no other. Since it so close to many of the attractions in Edinburgh, it is a great resting spot to relax in between tours, shows, meals, and visits to museums.
