Step Into The Scotsman Hotel


An Icon Of Edinburgh Since 1905

The Scotsman Hotel is located on the historic North Bridge, connecting the ancient Old Town of Edinburgh with the cosmopolitan New Town. 10 floors of luxurious rooms, suites and a duplex Penthouse offer our guests unrivalled views including Edinburgh Castle, Calton Hill, The Scott Monument and beyond.

Named after Scotland’s national newspaper, for which the Baroque building was originally built as headquarters, The Scotsman of today is a true city hotel, featuring an all-day brasserie restaurant, three bars, a boutique cinema and a range of events spaces.
