We were visiting Scotland to see friends and chose this hotel for an added bit of luxury.
This is a beautiful hotel, very grand building and reception area. The staff were very polite and helpful.
Our room was lovely, elegant design, comfortable bed, great ammenities, lots of special touches and a superb shower!
The hotel was just changing over to a 'Waldorf Astoria' hotel - we noticed the new name had been revealed on the morning we left.
The staff were very helpful too and advised us on various routes / sightseeing tips as well as providing a map for us to take away.
The location is perfect, it is situated at the bottom of Princess Street, in walking distance of all sightseeing places such as the castle and gardens.
This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a bit of luxury for your stay - I'd recommend it to couples and groups of friends. We would stay at the hotel again on our next visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian, or the "Caley" as it has become affectionately known among Edinburgh folk, was and still is the epitome of style and excellence. The large, rose-coloured Permian sandstone facade, quarried in Dumfries, dominates the skyline of the city's west end. The hotel has not only remained a focal point for more than one hundred years, but a symbol of the very best of Scottish hospitality. The Caley's pivotal position at the very heart of Edinburgh has always been its greatest asset. Created out of the 19th century railway boom, the five star hotel is looking to the future with confidence and pride in its ability to keep pace with the times. The hotel's reputation is as justified now as it was when the hotel first opened its doors in 1903. ... more less
