Hipster-chic in Old Town Edinburgh

Housed in a charming, listed building in the heart of the Old Town, Grassmarket Hotel is bags of fun – and it knows it. From the funky décor that will make hipsters feel right at home, to the shelves full of board games in the lobby, this place makes for a lively crash pad for your next visit to Edinburgh.

The location is something to shout about, too. Just off the Royal Mile with Edinburgh Castle in your sights you’d be hard pushed to find a better place to base yourself for a few days exploring the city. Camera Obscura is a firm favourite for travellers, and it’s a three-minute walk from the hotel. You’ll also be within a five- or six-minute stroll of both St Giles’ Cathedral and the National Museum of Scotland, so this is prime sight-seeing territory.

Grassmarket is treasure trove of indie shops and cafés perfect for pottering about of an afternoon. Stroll along the Royal Mile and you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to wining and dining. Whether it’s a spot of laidback and tasty pub grub you’re after, or you fancy treating yourself to a slap-up meal in a trendy restaurant, you’ll be sure to find something here.

Back at the hotel you’ll find a door in the lobby leads to the bar next door, which is where you can fill up on the continental breakfast offering, or grab a bite throughout the day. The rooms here are hipster-chic, with comic book wallpaper and steamer trunks for wardrobes. More importantly, the beds are comfy, and the bathrooms come with rainfall showers perfect for washing off a day of sightseeing. Rooms even come with docks and speakers so you can rock out while you chill out.
