Edinburgh Market Street Hotel bows in

The first Design Hotels member in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh Market Street, has opened its doors next to the city’s Art Centre and a short walk from Royal Mile, Waverley Station, Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens.

The building features a Scottish stone exterior with a contemporary interior designed by FG Stijl inspired by the location's character and history on the border between Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns.

The 98 rooms and suites range from 15-47sq m and each features a king-size bed or twin beds. All play host to a marble bathroom with a shower, while the 31sq m Roomy Bath guestroom and the Alba Suite also boast freestanding bathtubs.

The Alba Suite and the Vista room, at up to 28sq m, afford panoramic views over the city (binoculars provided), while the hotel’s pinnacle is a rooftop champagne lounge to form part of Edinburgh’s World Heritage skyline.

The FG Stijl design company, which has offices in Amsterdam and Dubai, also designed in 2007 The Dominican in Brussels, a boutique hotel which, like Edinburgh Market Street, also forms part of the Design Hotels Group’s Carlton Hotel collection.
