    Absolutely loved this hotel. From the design to the history of the building to the incredibly friendly and helpful staff to the location to the spa... I could go on and on. Loved!

    Very comfortable for two Canadians

    Great location and very friendly staff. Really like all Scottish people that we met! Hotel is in a great location to all things that are fun and interesting in Edinburgh! The rooms were very well decorated and had every thing we needed for our extended stay.

    Great place to stay in New Town Edinburgh

    The staff was very friendly and the architecture and location perfect for those visiting Edinburgh for the first time. Loved the beautiful spiral staircase! Very nice hotel.

    Price on Kayak and Priceline for this hotel on this given night was good.

    If hotel staff know customer has booked with a booking company other than making reservations directly with hotel, the customer care and service beginning with room selection at check-in and savings on dining and other amenities are sub-standard to that if you book directly with the hotel.

About

Overview

Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private garden squares, Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square consists of seven inter-connecting Georgian townhouses in the heart of the New Town. Our beautiful bedrooms and suites are inspired by the golden age of travel and a genuine sense of Scottish hospitality. Sitting proudly in the middle of the hotel is The Garden bar and restaurant, an oasis of calm in the centre of the city. Light and bright during the day for breakfast and lunch, transforming in to a fairy-lit hideaway in the evening for cocktails and dinner.BABA restaurant is a sumptuous, relaxed journey to the Levant, featuring mezze, charcoal dishes and small plates with bold Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours perfect for sharing. Cocktails take on the adventurous flavours to continue the journey until late in the BABA bar.The Spa at Principal is the place to relax, reenergise and rejuvenate. Treatments use natural, organic ingredients, with products by OSKIA and ishga skincare ranges. Guests can make use of Intenza Fitness cardio equipment and Impulse strength stations along with free weights, fitness studio and a designated stretch and core space. Heated relaxation rooms and use of the pool, sauna and steam room are also available.
