The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh or The Caledonian is a charming historic hotel, nestled right in the heart of all the action in Edinburgh, on the iconic Princes Street. Also nicknamed ‘The Caley‘, this magical place overwhelms everyone with its elegant decor, blending state-of-the-art amenities with historic cues and excellent Scottish hospitality, and promising to offer you serene views and an unforgettable experience.

Every single attraction of this wonderful European city is withing walking distance from this high-end hotel, which means boredom will not be a state of mind on this trip. Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh has been around for more than a century now, but don’t worry; it recently went through a multi million-dollar renovation to make sure every single guest will leave this hotel with a big smile on their face.

With 241 beautiful guest rooms and suites on offer, the once Victorian railway hotel basks in the magnificence of the Edinburgh Castle. Each room offers amazing views of the Castle or the property’s fashionable surrounding streets, while the dining experience at the Caledonian will prove to be equally impressive.

Not one, but two excellent restaurants – the Pompadour by Galvin and the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe – will make sure you have plenty to talk about upon returning home. George Street’s designer stores and bars will keep your shopping muscles active, and then there’s the hotel’s lavish Guerlain Spa, that will prove to be the cherry on top of your amazing vacation to Edinburgh. Ready or not, here I come!
