Stay in a Town House Environment at the Ballantrae Albany Hotel

What Should I Expect at the Ballantrae Albany Hotel?

The Ballantrae Albany Hotel is a four-star property in Edinburgh, but it has an unusual and charming layout. The rooms are spread across four town houses. Although the city itself is very historic, rooms at the Ballantrae Albany Hotel have all of the modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including en suite bathrooms. Friendly and well-informed staff members can help you decide how to make the most of your time in Edinburgh. Wi-Fi is available throughout the property so you can keep in touch with people from home or do research about nearby activities.

Where is the Hotel Located?

If you read any Ballantrae Albany hotel reviews, you'll notice that many discuss how the property is conveniently located no matter why or for how long you're in the city. George Street is just a two-minute walk from the hotel, and Princes Street is also a short distance on foot. That means you're never too far away from designer shops, tasty restaurants, and welcoming pubs. Also, if you have rented a car and want to explore outside Edinburgh, the hotel has on-site parking for when you return.

What Are the Rates Like?

Rates at the Ballantrae Albany Hotel average $54 per night. That's more than the Britannia Edinburgh Hotel, but about the same as the Motel One Edinburgh-Royal. You can also potentially save on transportation costs by staying at this property. It's walking distance from the Waverly Rail Station, which makes surrounding regions easily accessible. 

What's the Bottom Line?

A stay at the Ballantrae Albany Hotel puts you within easy reach of many of Edinburgh's most famous attractions, including some of its notable shopping streets. Because there are several types of rooms available in the hotel, it's a good solution for families, honeymooners, and solo travelers.
