Nira Caledonia Hotel

This boutique Hotel belongs to the Small Luxury Hotels.

Comprising two magnificent Georgian townhouses in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, Nira Caledonia is a quirky blend of architectural grandeur and modern interior design. Far from showy or grand, expect an easy going, yet smart and comfortable feel where an emphasis on providing the best of the region is reflected in the restaurant with locally sourced produce, a superb selection of single malt whisky in the bar and indulgently comfortable accommodation.


Nira Caledonia is superbly placed, just a ten-minute walk from Princes Street. Take a walk around New Town to appreciate the wealth of Georgian architecture with its cobbled streets, impressive pillars and sandstone block facades. Then, head towards the old part of the city to see the castle, the cathedral, galleries and the boutiques along the Royal Mile.
