The Balmoral Hotel sits on the corner of a busy intersection and perhaps you would pass by it if you did not know it was there. It is quietly elegant. The Scotsman in his kilt sweeps you in through the revolving door into the peaceful lobby, and the hustle and bustle is left behind - perfect after a long overnight flight. The lobby is not massive, but refined and tasteful as are the rooms. Our room was not small, even though we had the standard room. The bathrooms are gorgeous - but warning that the spacious tub is very high off the floor (yet you will want to use it after a long day of sightseeing)! If you do want a view - you will need to upgrade. We faced the interior atrium below and the other interior rooms - I will just say we kept the blinds partly drawn. Housekeeping was exceptional (the turndown service was actually a treat with the slippers placed just so!) Room service was quick and attentive. I only wish there might have been a coffee maker in the room - but that is what room service was for - We were spoiled for sure! Recommend this historic hotel without hesitation!

The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where our porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and our kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel. Experience Number One our Michelin-starred restaurant, indulge in afternoon tea at Palm Court or drinks in the signature whisky bar, Scotch. A comprehensive range of treatments will help you unwind in the award-wining Balmoral Spa. The 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms have magnificent views of the city or the hotel's internal courtyard.
