Edinburgh's Newest Design Hotel

One of the city's most anticipated hotel openings and thought-provoking architecture projects, located in Edinburgh's famous Old Town.

The Telegraph

Rated 9/10

"It’s sleek, it’s sensuously simple, it’s downright sexy. No cookie-cutter thinking here: modern design complements the local vernacular, from the sandstone exterior to the sliding oak shutters. And it isn’t design sacrificing function—everything works as well as it looks. All that and eco-awareness that goes beyond re-using the (luxurious) towels, embracing everything from the environmentally sustainable Saint Luc furniture to re-usable glass throughout."

The Times

Best Romantic Hotel 2019

"Stepping out from that lift is like walking onto the pages of Wallpaper magazine. Flooded by light from full-height windows that run the length of the long rectangular space, the seventh floor is an open-plan reception/bar/lounge with retro crushed-velvet rocking chairs and armchairs, artwork curated by the Fruitmarket Gallery and the neighbouring City Art Centre, and steel columns cleverly disguised as industrial-chic bookshelves. This is the only member of the hip Design Hotels collection in Scotland."

Excellent in every way 100% recommend

"We have just returned from a stay at the superb Market Street Hotel in Edinburgh. This hotel really exceeded our expectations in every way combining both the cosy and the modern in its style and ambience. Everything in the mini bar is complementary and the quality of the wine was excellent. The modern room comes complete with high spec Dyson hair dryer, GHDs and clothing steamer. It really was a unique experience. Service was excellent in the champagne bar and the small dishes were very tasty accompanied by complimentary champagne. We loved meeting the concierge Anthony. He was exceptionally friendly and helpful with ideas for places to visit and made us feel really welcome. After speaking to him we wanted to return to both the area and the hotel. Paul was outstanding at reception helping and advising us, making us feel so welcome and ensuring we loved our stay - and guess what we’ve already booked a return visit."

A first look inside Edinburgh's newest hotel

"Edinburgh's new iconic Market Street hotel has officially opened for bookings in the heart of the Old Town. Located at a key gap site in the heart of Edinburgh's UNESCO World Heritage site, the hotel has been a highly-anticipated arrival in the city.

Market Street hotel will feature 98 urban boutique style rooms including one suite, as well as the highly anticipated champagne lounge, the Nor’ Loft."

"The contemporary, simple interiors have wooden floors, granite walls, obligatory flourishes of tartan and thick, sliding oak shutters instead of curtains: another nod to the ‘fortress’ inspiration, except instead of enemy clans they’re potent defences against noise and light."
