    The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel
    Edinburgh
    1.6 miles to city center
    #1 in Best Hotels in New Town, Edinburgh
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4371 reviewsTripAdvisor (4371)

    Attached to the Edinburgh Waverley train station, this central Edinburgh hotel sits within walking distance of must-visit sights like the National Museum of Scotland and the Scotch Whisky Experience. The hotel is located inside a historic building known for its large clock tower, and accommodations have chic touches like modern wooden furnishings and marble bathrooms with James Bond movie prints. Minibars, complimentary Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs are also provided in all rooms, while larger suites come with personalized concierge services, one garment pressing and daily breakfast. For meals, guests have two restaurants to choose from: Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux and Number One. The Michelin-starred Number One restaurant serves Scottish cuisine while Brasser Prince offers French dishes throughout the day. Four bars and lounges, ten meeting rooms and a spa with a Finnish sauna, a fitness center and an indoor lap pool are available to guests as well. Overall, recent lodgers enjoyed their stays at The Balmoral, although some felt their rooms were small and pricey. However, most travelers were impressed with Scotch's selection of whiskies and Palm Court's afternoon tea service.

    Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian
    Edinburgh
    2 miles to city center
    #2 in Best Hotels in New Town, Edinburgh
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4404 reviewsTripAdvisor (4404)

    This centrally located Edinburgh hotel earns high marks for making guests feel at home, and travelers say this is largely attributed to the Waldorf's remarkable service. Numerous guests gave major kudos to the staff for their genuinely welcoming manner and super attentive attitudes. Not only that, but they're known to go the extra mile for special occasions. The Waldorf's comfy rooms were another attribute that made guests' experiences quite homey (all while maintaining the elegance Waldorf Astorias are known for). All accommodations have Nespresso coffee machines, flat-screen TVs, bathrobes and slippers, minibars and Salvatore Ferragamo bath products. If it’s in your budget, lodgers highly recommend booking a room facing the castle. In addition to luxurious in-room amenities, the hotel features a gym, spa and childrens menus at the restaurants. The hotel has two restaurants – The Pompadour by Galvin offers fine dining and Galvin Brasserie De Luxe is slightly more casual – and The Caley Bar offers a variety of cocktails. Travelers recommend getting breakfast or afternoon tea at the Peacock Alley lounge, though others wished the hotel had a pool. There is also plenty to explore within walking distance of the hotel – including Edinburgh’s biggest landmark, the Edinburgh Castle – but it's also just a short stroll away from Princes Street, a thoroughfare flush with shopping, dining and nightlife options.
