Rooms

Guests at the newly refurbished Grassmarket Hotel can choose between a single, double, or twin bedroom, each featuring light, warm tones and soft, fresh bed linens.

All are comfortably furnished and have bathroom facilities en-suite, complimentary toiletries, flat-screen plasma TV, and tea- and coffee-making equipment.

The Grassmarket hotel operates on a room-only basis, but a full Scottish breakfast and good-value food are available in Biddy Mulligan's Pub every day.

Good vibes!

The hotel is well located with restaurants, shops, bars and attractions just a few steps away. The décor is very modern and creative. Staff was very helpful and the free Wi-Fi worked just fine. The in-room bathroom were fully equipped with soap, shampoo, towels, etc. and the AC worked perfectly. Would definitely stay here again.

fantastic location

The location was perfect with a gorgeous view of the castle. The room size was adequate for an individual or couple , but not a family. Very little storage available for your belongings, so you would need to travel light. The room was clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was a very easy walk to many of the attractions we were interested in seeing. We easily found our way to the castle, train station for side trips,and Edinburgh University. The area had wonderful pubs,restaurants, and delicious bakeries all within an easy walk. We thought the hotel was great value.

brilliant little hotel, well located

Fantastic hotel. Room was small but very well equipped and excellent use of the space available. I have stayed in much larger rooms that don't have as much space because of how they are laid out. Couldn't ask for a better location.

Very accessible

Easy access to major Edinburgh attractions. The room that I got was small but very clean and comfortable. Has a safe inside the room which is a plus.
