Kimpton Charlotte Square – Edinburgh, Scotland


One of the smartest addresses in Edinburgh’s New Town, this hotel occupies seven interconnected townhouses overlooking the square’s garden and has been revamped and re-branded by the California-based group, Kimpton. Once past the classical Georgian exterior, you’ll be struck by the hip interior, combining handsome woods, plush fabrics and splashes of colour to dramatic effect. The Garden, a glass-topped central courtyard and riot of hanging plants and wicker, is a buzzy place ‘to meet, snack and drink’, from morning till late, while BABA serves inventive dishes that blend Middle Eastern and Scottish cuisines. If you over- indulge, work out in the well-equipped fitness centre or relax in the cutting-edge spa. The 199 stylish bedrooms and suites celebrate the golden age of travel through curated art, books and objects; thoughtful extras include yoga mats.


Historical Edinburgh Castle is only a stone’s throw away from the hotel.


Dine at the hotel’s award winning restaurant, BABA.


Have fun buying tickets to the endless shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
