Hip Hotels in Edinburgh

Sleek furnishings and decadent decor make these the hippest hotels in Edinburgh.

A short walk from the Water of Leith, the Malmaison is a hip but unpretentious boutique hotel in the old harbor district was once a dormitory for seaman in the 19th century. Today it is known for its super slinky hotel rooms, all 100 of which are decked out with Wi-fi access and flat screen TV's. The trendy suites offer sporting views across the Union Canal in the heart of Leith. You'll find free standing, tartan roll top baths adorning these most Scottish of Scottish suites, as well as super-sized beds, walk in showers and bespoke toiletries.

Voted by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the top 50 hottest hotels in the world, behind the fa├žade of the 150 year old Lady Glenorchy church, you'll find the sleek and utterly modern Glasshouse. The hotel offers beautiful views of the city - what better way to view Firth of Forth or Calton Hill than within the comforts of your own room! A better option would be a room with a terrace, where you can always go for a breath of fresh air. The various suites are named after Scotch whisky. There are various packages available - if you're on your honeymoon, stay in the 'Love is in the air' suite, which comes with a Sauna Jacuzzi-King Bed.

The Bonham Hotel is one of Edinburgh's most stylish boutique hotels. Set in the West End in a series of Victorian hotels, inside bold colors, rich textures, and modern art and photography give the hotel a truly contemporary spirit. There are 48 boutique rooms and suites at The Bonham, each individually styled so that, among them, you will almost certainly find the one you have been waiting for. High ceilings, state-of-the art bathrooms and plush furniture in the unique rooms add to the luxurious setting. Unusual features include an original Edwardian copper bath in one of the superior rooms and a distinctive crimson spiral sofa-bench in reception. The Bonham also houses a permanent art collection, featuring the works of approximately 30 local 'up and coming' Scottish artists.
