About the hotel

Our building dates from 1860, when built amongst the last of the New Town. We are Grade 2 Listed , which means sadly we cannot install a lift and there's a LOT of stairs, great if you are into exercise, but not so great if you aren't able bodied. Our founder was Eliza, who had spent her youth in Service, from Large Estates to Hotels to private residences.

She had vision, and was ahead of her time, when she converted our buildings from National Coal Board Offices in 1962, to an eclectic hotel with en suite facilities, TVs etc ; one of the first to do so in Edinburgh. Eliza had seen that the Ritz in London was founded by Cesar Ritz, who liked her had worked his way up , and with her sense of humour, she couldn't resist calling her hotel The Ritz! She wanted the hotel to remain as true as possible to its heritage, and as you look around, you will see a sympathetic conversion of an 1860 New Town Town House. Also it means, no two rooms are the same! And we have original cornices! It is a philopshy we like to continue in her memory, and we are in the process of some changes, which will take time, but we wish to remain true to her memory and keep it original & quirky!

Ritz Hotel

Fantastic, cozy, historic, delightful hotel.

Jonas at the bar of this hotel was so helpful and amazing with maps, finding us half-price parking compared to the other parkade, sorting out everything I needed sorted out. He and the other guy who held down the bar (maybe the others too but I didn't have a chance to check) memorized guests & room numbers, which blew me away too. The internet strength isn't all that strong, which was a bit tricky for a Skype call I had to make, but I really enjoyed this hotel otherwise. It's just gorgeous and friendly. Betty's bar is a nice place to hang out and chat to whoever's around in an evening and they make a great cup of tea with milk.

Lovely hotel for a city centre overnight stay

My son & his girlfriend came to stay as a birthday treat.

The central location was convenient for both business and rail links . Staff were friendly and flexible ( they woke 5 mins prior to checkout meaning they were running behind time) the hotel were understanding and no pressure was put on them to leave. The room was satisfactory with them enjoying the traditional feel and in particular the 4 poster bed
