Nira Caledonia is surrounded by the cobbled streets and Georgian elegance of New Town, a short stroll from Princes Street, Nira Caledonia is a central yet peaceful Edinburgh retreat. Amid the plush pelmets, rich textures and original cornices you'll find flat-screen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. You'll find warm, heartfelt service and a cool, quirky style. Each of our sumptuous rooms and suites is unique, with its own opulent character. Many have vast floor-to-ceiling sash windows, others open out onto a private garden and some feature a relaxing Jacuzzi. All have new ultra-comfortable beds and pillows of goose feather and down. As a protected Grade A building we don't have a lift, but our porters are always on hand and we offer 24-hour room service. The cuisine at our restaurant is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland and with over 25 Scotch whiskey blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours. With a friendly touch - and a touch of theatre - we welcome independent-minded travellers who prefer to go their own way. Come our way.

Booked the jacuzzi suite for one night for £263. For that, I’d expect everything to be flawless, but unfortunately it wasn’t…. We were given room 10/9 in the building 6. The door to the room is right at the bottom of the stairs on the ground floor and upon opening said door, we found the bed within a couple of feet. As expected, when in bed, you could hear everything that happened in the communal lobby. Maybe switch the bedroom and lounge area around so there’s a bit of peace for sleeping? Then it was on to the jacuzzi (no instructions supplied). We worked out that the bath had to be filled to a certain level before it worked and pressing a few buttons got the desired effect. A few of the knobs that looked like they’d control the bath just came off when touched and we never worked out how to drain the bath either. The shower was an even less pleasurable experience. I’d be stunned if it’s more than 2 feet squared. Never been in a smaller shower. Luckily, the jacuzzi had a shower head. Unluckily, it didn’t work. Or we couldn’t get it to work. The minibar was empty. Why? At least provide a bottle of water. Other small flaws are the massive bedside cabinets, which we both manage to elbow in the middle of the night. They impinge so much near the bed that I’m surprised there’s not been a broken cheekbone or two. Instead of the massive cabinets, maybe a charging point or socket near the bed? Ah, the bed. A jacuzzi room would probably be rented by a couple, so why not have a king size bed in there, instead of two singles pushed together? Very uncomfortable. The biggest issue was the floor. Never thought I’d write a review of a hotel room floor. They must polish the floor with Pledge as it’s like an ice rink. We both slipped on the floor just by walking to the toilet. And falling hard on a hardwood floor isn’t fun. Every trip from the bedroom was taken on with great trepidation. Just very poor. At least the breakfast was very nice. And the price was reduced by about £30 as I complained about the floor. Didn’t bother mentioning much else as wasn’t really being listened to. I’d be annoyed paying for the room at all, let alone the £230 it cost me. Just terrible value.

I thoroughly enjoyed my second visit to the hotel and it was lovely being back in Edinburgh . It was unfortunate that the guests staying above me were very noisy but understand that this is not the fault of the hotel

We had a lovely overnight stay booked as a Christmas treat to ourselves in a jacuzzi suite. It was amazing! The bath was huge and water hot and plentiful. The staff were all lovely and did all that they could to make us feel welcome and happy.
