Kimpton Charlotte Square

Edinburgh, Scotland

Perched on the edge of a picturesque private garden in the New Town, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel blends traditional glamour with the Scotland of today. Outside, a classical Georgian exterior stands as an ode to the past while inside, past the lobby, a glass-topped central courtyard is abuzz with activity as travellers unwind over gin & tonics, local professionals do business, and friends toast special occasions.

Edinburgh, Scotland

Our grand location in the new town of Edinburgh is close enough to take advantage of the city’s historic attractions, art, and culture, yet just far enough from the well-trodden tourist track. The New Town has a chic, cosmopolitan vibe and is filled with buzzy new cocktail bars, vibrant restaurants, and great shopping. Yet wherever you roam, you’ll still be able to soak in views of the iconic Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town on the hillside above. It’s a visual reminder that Edinburgh is a true study in contrasts: a city where a storied past collides with an energetic present, and a city where you’ll never tire of things to do.

Food & Drink


The best meals are the ones you don’t have to choose. Using the very best produce, the ingredients found on Aizle’s six-course tasting menu are constantly changing to give you a fleeting snapshot of the season. Everything is made in-house, from the nutritious live ferment in the sourdough, to the hand churned butter, to the aquavit and aged kombucha in our cocktails.


Is a destination in its own right. A bold turquoise palette and eye-popping textiles set the scene for what’s to come: contemporary cocktails and inventive cooking that blends Middle Eastern with Scottish influences. Mezze take centre stage here, but a charcoal grill pulls its weight, too, turning out Scottish lamb, beef, and seafood. Locals, who have been flocking here since the restaurant opened, know the secret to the menu: mix, match, and don’t be shy about sharing.

Local Area

Stroll from Dean Village along Water of Leith until you arrive in the Stockbridge area.

On Sundays, there’s small but truly amazing market that showcases a selection of artisanal food and drink.

Enjoy a cocktail at Bullard & Worth, a little hidden gem tucked away on Rose Street North Lane—just ask our concierge to secure a table.

Climb Arthur’s Seat and take in the panoramic view across the city—it’s simply stunning.

Don’t leave without dining at Ondine —it’s the city’s best seafood destination.
