Kimpton Charlotte Square


New Town chic

Overlooking one of Edinburgh’s prettiest private garden squares, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel consists of seven interconnected grand Georgian townhouses brought into the 21st century in a playful style.

199 rooms blend handsome woods, plush fabrics, and rich pops of colour (and just a touch of tartan), ranging up to some impressive suites.

Dining venues include the Scottish influenced Middle Eastern at the popular BABA, six-course tasting menus of British seasonal produce at Aizle and light bites in the tranquil Garden bar in the centre of the hotel.
