Luxury boutique hotel practically on the Royal Mile

Located in the heart of the city, the hotel is close to Edinburgh railway station and all of the city’s major transport routes.
Consisting of 75 apartments, suites and rooms, this 5-star property includes a variety of lavish extras as well as standard hotel amenities. Each room contains en-suite generous bathroom facilities with designer toiletries. Bedrooms are equipped with Freeview TV, electronic safe, iPod/MP3 dock, hairdryer, and iron and ironing board.

Complimentary services include high speed broadband, a fitness suite, daily maid service, and self-service laundry, which is particularly useful for those staying for a prolonged period of time. Concierge and room services are also offered, as well as a shuttle bus to Edinburgh’s business district.

Guests at the Fraser Suites Edinburgh will find themselves on top of all of the city’s action, thanks to the hotel’s placement in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. The shops, restaurants, cafés, and pubs of the Royal Mile all provide an intriguing locale for tourists, whilst the castle itself has many features worthy of a visitor’s attention. The Royal Tattoo, held towards the end of summer, is an event seeped with history and regalia.
As well as the castle, the city streets are rich with heritage to the extent that the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. As is to be expected then, there are plenty of examples of archaic and historic architecture as well as modern takes on design.
The city’s many gardens and parks are all within close range of the hotel, and all make for an ideal location to sit back and relax for an hour or two. Holyrood Park will be of particular interest to watchers of the Royal Family. Museums and galleries frequent the Scottish city and all are within easy reach. Edinburgh Museum and the National Museum of Scotland can both be found within a 10 minute walk.
Those hoping for a truly spectacular view, or a suitable epic photo opportunity, Arthur’s Seat, a 251m high hill in Holyrood Park, is the perfect destination. Here visitors can gaze upon the historic city and for miles around, before returning to take rest at the Fraser Suites Edinburgh.
