Step up to a window and gaze out at the sight of Edinburgh Castle, perched above this distinguished city and perfectly visible from The Balmoral.

A fantastic location a few meters away from the central train station with views of Edinburgh Castle.
The Balmoral is located in the center of the dignified Scottish city of Edinburgh. With 168 rooms and 20 suites to choose from, The Balmoral's history and charm is effortlessly translated to guests. Accommodations offer views towards Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town, or the hotel's internal courtyard.

If a representative is to pick you up from the airport or train station, be on the lookout for a Scotsman in full traditional dress ... The Balmoral is very proud of its scintillating Scottish heritage. The rooms are decorated in the earthy colors of Scotland's moors, mists, and heathers. Natural fabrics - linens, silks, wools, and leather - combine with Scottish-themed artwork to create a cozy and lushly luxurious environment. Plus, every bed sports a blanket designed by Johnston's of Elgin - to lend an authentic touch.

A couple of musts while you're here: go to the Spa and attend Afternoon Tea. Just make sure to change out of your robe for tea. This IS Edinburgh, you know.
