Awarded "The Rising Star City Hotel" at the Scottish Hotel Awards, The Place is one of the most exciting hotels in Edinburgh - definitely the Place to be! A stunning Georgian townhouse in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre is modern and stylish where contemporary design and flair meets the the needs of the modern day traveller. Located close to the Playhouse Theatre and the fashionable shopping district, The Place is the perfect choice for a city break in Edinburgh. The comfortable rooms and suites are complemented by a seriously chic restaurant with fantastic food and modern bar - what more could you need?

The Place Rooms

STANDARD - DOUBLE
With a bit more floor space than the city doubles above and rooms from the first floor upwards, many (but not all) of these rooms have lovely views to the rear whilst a few others overlook the street. You can request either and we will try our best to allocate your preference. Decorated with style and fully equipped, the standard double suits most needs for a city break. Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.
STANDARD - TWIN
Situated on the lower ground floor, and most with a fairly decent amount of floor space. These fully equipped rooms are ideal for sharing with friends. Most of the twins are to the lower front of the building. Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.
SUPERIOR - DOUBLE
With a good mixture of street views and Fife views these rooms are towards the luxury end of our stock. Most of this room type can be twins or doubles (we assume a double unless you specifically request a twin) Lots of space, some with superb views of Fife (subject to availability) Aimed at the traveller coming for a special occasion, or for a longer stay, or for a romantic break or simply for those who just want that bit more space and luxury. Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.
LUXURY - SUITE
These are seriously big rooms aimed primarily at honeymoon guests and romantic breaks. Superbly decorated and finished with good lounging space, large televisions, superb bathrooms and big comfortable beds. Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, large flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.
SINGLE - ROOM
Small rooms tucked away in various parts of the hotel. Single bed, functional, comfortable and cheap. What more can we say! Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.
COSY CITY DOUBLE - ROOM
Our cosy double rooms are aimed at those who simply want to drop their bags, explore the city and come back to sleep in comfort. The floor space is limited, although the rooms are still fully equipped, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The beds are standard 4'6" doubles. Most of these rooms are on on the lower ground floor, away from any traffic noise, and they are naturally lit by our guest controlled electric velux windows. Room includes egyptian cotton sheets, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi and welcome tea tray.

Excellent location and stuff

Very lucky to book this hotel. Very warm and friendly stuff. Room comfortable and clean. The excellent location, 5 minutes walk to the center of the city and Main Street. Besides it is not located in the heart of the busy location, so we could enjoy the convenience traffic and away from the crowed visitors. The price is quite reasonable and valuable.

It is better to book the cheaper room and upgrade to a luxury one when you arrive if you stay a couple of days. Not a big difference in price.

Excellent overnight stay

This Hotel offers a great combination of good location, clean modern rooms very helpful friendly staff, and excellent value for money. Our room was on the top floor, which gave us good exercise, but was quiet, being at the rear with some terrific views. Only one small problem; the bedside lamps did not work, but overall very good. Would definitely stay there again.

Needs attention

The room was less than stellar. The sink fixtures weren't working and took three days to get fixed. I had to ask that the room be cleaned by the housekeeping staff and even with the do not disturb sign out in the morning, they knocked every morning. Great location but poor service.

Great location. Great staff.

My daughter and I stayed five nights and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful. The room was spacious. Buffet breakfast was delicious. The new tram runs from the airport to the hotel front door. And the location is very convenient to everything.

Not worth of four stars

I dont´t understand why the Place advertises having four stars: no lift, no safety box in room, no refilling of bathroom facilities, the washbasin was so tiny you could only wash your hands on it. In the bathroom there was no space for any hygienic items. My single room was so small that it was hard to find any place for my cabin size suitcase. The window was single and difficult to close properly. So the noise from the street was loud. The breakfast didn´t include fresh vedgetables, only fried tomatoes. The only fruits were in fruitsalad. I had to ask for teapot to brew tea. However, the staff was very kind and helpfull and the situation of the hotel is quite good, especially when leaving for airport. The tram station to airport is only 50 m from hotel.

first time Edinburgh visit

The staff was above all the shining gemstone in this crown. They helped me find a solution for a bigger room which was originally my mistake when I booked the reservation. Front desk staff was charming and gracious. Our whole experience was lovely and memorable.
