The Caledonian Hotel Edinburgh

Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

The Caledonian Hotel Edinburgh is an iconic former Victorian railway hotel that sits proudly on prestigious Princes Street in the centre of Edinburgh. Built in the early 20th century, The Caledonian joined the upper echelons of the Hilton group in 2012 when it became a Waldorf Astoria. The hotel's full name is 'The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel'. The hotel is an excellent place to stay thanks to its great choice of restaurants, its modern and inviting bedrooms, and its good selection of leisure offerings.


The 241 luxurious bedrooms at The Caledonian Hotel Edinburgh come with bathrobes, slippers, WiFi and Nespresso coffee machines. There are single bedrooms as well as rooms with twin, queen and king beds. Some deluxe bedrooms offer vistas of the castle. King junior suites have open-plan living rooms, and one-bedroom suites have separate living spaces.


Inside The Caledonian Hotel Edinburgh there are two unique family-run restaurants. The Galvin Brasserie De Luxe is adorned with traditional French designs and serves typical Gallic cuisine throughout the day. Conversely, The Pompadour by Galvin is an elegant, even opulent, place to dine against the backdrop of the castle. For socialising or an informal meeting you might like to try Peacock Alley, which is home to the old Caledonian Station clock. The Caley Bar is a stylish setting for drinks.


The Caledonian Hotel Edinburgh is the only remaining part of the Caledonian Railway Station complex, which was demolished in 1970. It is a dramatic place to hold meetings and events, such is its beautiful setting in the shadow of the castle. The Castle Suite is the largest room here. Its classical style makes it perfect for a wedding or special occasion in this fabulous city on the Firth of Forth.


Make your stay even more relaxing by visiting the hotel's Guerlain Spa. Its treatment menu aims to rejuvenate and pamper you. Or head for the exercise room, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room to keep fit or unwind.


This elegant building has an exceptional position, enhanced by views of Edinburgh Castle. With gorgeous interiors to match its grand exterior, and a fabulous New Town location, this five star hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Scotland’s ever-impressive capital.
