The Principal Edinburgh George Street

Set in a prestigious position in the heart of the Scottish capital, The Principal Edinburgh George Street is a fantastic destination for your short break in Edinburgh. A mere stone’s throw from the city’s top attractions – Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, Arthur’s Seat and the fabulous shopping on Princes Street – you’ll be in a prime location for exploring the best Edinburgh has to offer. Conveniently close to Edinburgh Waverley rail station, the hotel boasts an enviable ease of access when visiting the city.

It has elegant rooms, conference and meeting rooms and a gym. Free high-speed WiFi is available throughout the hotel.

Housed in a distinctive Grade II listed building, The Principal Edinburgh George Street has an incredible heritage, bags of original charm and a luxury defined by its own brand of elegance. The hotel has undergone a Multi-million pound refurbishment by interior architects Goddard Littlefair, creating a sense of restored grandeur by means of sympathetic restoration, simple detailing and the use of rich materials such as oak, brass, leather, velvet, glass and marble. Each spacious room comes with an en-suite bathroom and is equipped with a TV and tea & coffee making facilities to make the hotel feel like a home away from home.

Be sure to visit the brand new destination restaurant and bar Printing Press Bar & Restaurant which serves seasonal Scottish produce throughout the day and night. It is open 7 days a week offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a late-night bar until 01:00. Coffee, cakes, pastries, sandwiches and salads are available at Burr & Co, open 7 days a week. A full room service menu is also available.

Street parking is free between 6:30pm - 8.30am every day, and is free all day on Sunday. Outside of these hours there is a maximum parking time of three hours for £3.60 per hour (price can change at anytime). Alternatively, we offer a preferential rate for our guests at the Q Park Omni Centre car park.

Edinburgh International Airport is just 7 miles, or 25 minutes via taxi, from The Principal Edinburgh. A typical fare is under £25 (this may be higher on public holidays). There is regular tram service for £5.50 for a single trip, or £8.50 return, which takes about 40 minutes and stops at St Andrew Square. Please note the prices can change at anytime.
