About Grassmarket hotel

Funky hotel in Edinburgh's vibrant Old Town

Edinburgh's nightlife hub

This trendy hotel puts you on Grassmarket, a street in central Edinburgh renowned for its lively bars, shops, and restaurants. For more shopping, it's a 5-minute walk to Princes Street, home to large department stores such as Jenners and House of Fraser.

Royal Mile shopping

Grassmarket Hotel puts you within easy reach of Edinburgh's most iconic sights; Edinburgh Castle is a 5-minute walk away. You'll be just off the Royal Mile, lined with shops selling traditional tartan products and whiskies.

A drink in the lounge bar

The trendy reception area has a coffee machine and high stools where you can sit and enjoy a plate of teacakes on arrival. You can start a night out in the Old Town with a drink at the bar next door, which also serves a hearty Scottish breakfast.

Magnetic wall maps

Cozy guestrooms feature colorful, offbeat decor, such as comic book covers pasted on walls, and magnetic wall-sized maps to help you plan your sightseeing. More conventional, but still very handy, features include flat-screen TVs and free WiFi.

Grassmarket hotel
Adequate hotel in good location
Quite expensive, not great value - room very small, air-conditioning not working. Good bathroom and comfortable bed. No lift to third floor and many stairs and winding corridors so challenging with bags. At best adequate.

Great location
I stayed at The Grassmarket with my teenage son to visit Edinburgh during the festival. The location is excellent for any of the venues in the old town. The room was perfect, comfy bed, toiletries, and complimentary Tunnocks teacakes, water, tea, coffee and ginger beer! We had excellent breakfast in the adjoining pub Biddy Mulligans and received 15% discount as hotel residents. The reception staff were very friendly and they were happy for us to leave our bags in the locked luggage store once we had checked out.

Grassmarket hotel
bad experience could been handled more efficiently
This hotel is not soundproof. I had the misfortune of staying in a room right next to a group of rowdy lads swearing and throwing empty bottles at each other and fighting. From 11pm to 3.30am and after 4 calls upto 3:15 to reception...along with over residents the police were finally called. My door was banged on and attempted entry too by the party. I have complained to the booking agent as I got no sleep and have demanded a full refund. I have video evidence of the foul language raised voices and noice levels with camera pointed at mobile screen with date and time of incident. This is unacceptable. The manager said the police was busy that night and took while to remove the culprit? ... I don’t believe the police would take so long to attend a call out well over 1hr?...... I finally got to sleep at 4am 4 hrs later than my bedtime.

Great stay at the Grassmarket Hotel
Grassmarket hotel made a great base for a stay in Edinburgh, central and full of character. We went midweek and found it quiet, clean and comfortable. Loved the Dandy wallpaper and thanks for the complimentary Tunnocks!
