Victorian building, modern comfort
Built in 1879 as a hospital, the original building has been transformed into a very appealing, modern hotel with 52 comfortable bedrooms.
All guest rooms are decorated to the same high standard but each has its own character and, of course, views.
Edinburgh City Hotel isn’t a chain and that individuality shines out from the rooms to the staff.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to have an overnight stay in a double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a two course meal in the evening.
As well as free WiFi, rooms feature a laptop safe, ensuite bathroom, hair dryer, digital TV and hot drinks facilities.
There is a £20 per room per night supplement on Friday and Saturday night stays.
Fresh, local produce
The menu in the hotel’s Simpsons Restaurant changes with the seasons. All dishes are prepared to order, using as much fresh and local produce as possible.
Typical starters might include the pork, chicken and chorizo terrine with pear and smoked tomato relish or the vegetarian haggis pakora served with garlic mayonnaise.
Both the baked fillet of cod and fried potatoes, served with bacon and leeks topped with cheese sauce and the slow-cooked featherblade steak with kale, mashed potatoes and a red wine and shallot sauce have many fans.
Also popular are desserts like the lemon tart with Chantilly cream or the Drambuie and rich chocolate terrine with a coconut tuile biscuit.
