Rooms & Suites Picardy Place offers a sophisticated stay within walking distance of many of Edinburgh's historic sightseeing spots. Set opposite the OMNI Centre, which is home to a cinema, restaurants and leisure facilities, this upscale hotel occupies a Georgian townhouse with an elegant stone façade.
It's a short stroll from the Edinburgh Playhouse theatre and a 10-minute walk from Princes Street, the city's main shopping thoroughfare. Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle, which sit at either end of the Royal Mile in the Old Town, are both 20 minutes' walk from the hotel.
Behind its ornate entrance, Rooms & Suites Picardy Place's smart interiors are decorated in soft grey tones and featuring a wrought-iron central staircase. Guests can choose from two steak restaurants, one in an industrial-chic dining room with rustic wood tables, and the other serving sizzling dishes on volcanic stone plates. There's also a funky bar with a courtyard, offering light meals, cocktails and big-screen sports.
The hotel's grey colour palette continues in the 10 bedrooms, which also feature wooden floors and black-and-white photographic murals. All rooms have a mini bar, free Wi-Fi and a 3D HD TV with 3D glasses, as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities. Higher-category rooms are more spacious, while suites have sitting areas, bathtubs and desks.
