Each of the bedrooms at The Place Edinburgh offer a contemporary style and comfort, complete with charm, character and cleverly designed modern features

Standard Single:
The small single rooms offer stylish accommodation tucked away in various parts of the hotel. Single rooms have a single bed and like all the room types have an ensuite bathroom, complimentary toiletries, flat-screen TV, tea/coffee facilities iron and hairdryer.

City Double:
The cosy double rooms are aimed at those who simply want to drop their bags, explore the city and come back to sleep in comfort. The floor space is limited, although the rooms are still fully equipped, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The beds are standard 4’6″ doubles. Most of these rooms are on the lower ground floor, away from any traffic noise, and they are naturally lit by the guest controlled electric velux windows. None of these rooms are twin bedded, so if you need a twin you will need to book a higher standard of room. These rooms are smaller than the standard rooms and are priced to reflect that.

Standard Double:
With a bit more floor space than the city doubles above and rooms from the first floor upwards, many (but not all) of these rooms have lovely views to the rear whilst a few others overlook the street. You can request either and we will try the best to allocate your preference. Decorated with style and fully equipped, the standard double suits most needs for a city break.

Standard Twin:
Situated on the lower ground floor, and most with a fairly decent amount of floor space. These fully equipped rooms are ideal for sharing with friends. Most of the twins are to the lower front of the building.

Grand Double/Twin:
With a good mixture of street views and Fife views these rooms are towards the luxury end of the stock. Most of this room type can be twins or doubles (the hotel will assume a double unless you specifically request a twin) Lots of space, some with superb views of Fife (subject to availability) Aimed at the traveller coming for a special occasion, or for a longer stay, or for a romantic break or simply for those who just want that bit more space and luxury.

These are seriously big rooms aimed primarily at honeymoon guests and romantic breaks. Superbly decorated and finished with good lounging space, large televisions, superb bathrooms and big comfortable beds. Look out for a bargain for these rooms on quite a few dates and treat yourself to one of our romantic packages. You can also upgrade to this type of room at the time of booking, or on arrival, subject to availability.
