Whilst many hotels claim to have Edinburgh's landmarks on their
doorstep, few can say their doorstep is a landmark.

The Balmoral combines service that is attentive yet never intrusive
and has opulent suites and stylish rooms with stunning views towards

for utter relaxation.

The hotel's recent £7 million refurbishment programme includes all 188

All 188 guest bedrooms and suites were fully refurbished in 2003 and
2004. Olga Polizzi, Director of Building and Design, has personally
overseen the refurbishment of the bedrooms.

The 168 guest bedrooms and 20 suites have been individually designed.
Each bedroom has its own characteristics, borrowed from our Scottish
heritage, which offers a true refuge in which to relax or escape. The
striped carpets and paint colours in the bedrooms have the earthy colours of
the moors, mists and heathers that one associates with Scotland. Natural
fabrics were used throughout: linens, silks,
wools and leather and introduced on headboards, valances and comfortable

The artwork has been selected to reflect Scottish themes and
includes artists such as Donald Campbell and his Bluebird, the
Skerrymore Lighthouse and a Circular Tour of the Highlands by Richard

A warm welcome to the The Balmoral in the heart of Edinburgh from me, Joseph
Winders, Head Concierge at the hotel, and my team.

The Balmoral is situated in the heart of Edinburgh and is well
serviced by all means of transport. Edinburgh Airport is situated
eight miles west from The Balmoral and will take approximately 25 minutes by

When departing Edinburgh International Airport, follow signs for the
A8 and Edinburgh City Centre. This will take you through the suburb
of Corstorphine, passing Edinburgh Zoo on your left and Murrayfield Stadium
on your right. You will soon approach the Haymarket district of the city.

Keep following City Centre signs into the West End junction of Princes
Street. You will then come into a one-way system that takes you through
Charlotte Square and onto Queen Street; follow Queen Street to its full
length. This leads into York Place, passing the National Portrait Gallery on
your right, before eventually reaching a roundabout.
Take the second exit and keep in your right-hand lane. This is Leith Street.
At the end of Leith Street you will come to a set of major traffic lights -
at this point you will see The Balmoral on your
right. At this set of traffic lights take a right turn onto Princes
Street. You will now be at The Balmoral, where our Doorman will
welcome you and look after your vehicle. Please note, we have no car park
on-site; however, our Doorman will park your car in our secure garage,
located off-site. The cost is £20 per night.

The hotel is situated next to Waverley Station, where we will meet
you from your train, taking you to the hotel by taxi.

Whilst you are here, I hope you will have time to explore and take
in the history, sights and sounds of this magical city.

I have put together a list of recommended restaurants in the city
