The City Bothy

"All the amenities you might expect from a luxury suite coupled with a country edge. Guests are welcomed with a decanter of whisky ... personal touches may make it hard for some to drag themselves out of the flat. This is one holiday home that you might just want to stay in forever"

The Scotsman


Welcome to the City Bothy*, a relaxing bolthole at the centre of Scotland’s capital. Situated in Edinburgh’s historic New Town, this stylish self-catering studio apartment (which sleeps 2) is only five minutes’ walk from Princes Street, making it perfectly placed to explore most of the city’s best shops, restaurants and galleries. It is also centrally located for the Edinburgh festival, the world's biggest arts jamboree, which takes place every August.

But the City Bothy has much more to offer than just a brilliant location. We’ve tried to create the kind of accommodation we would like to stay in ourselves, whether travelling on vacation or for business. What you won’t find are old nylon sheets or a saggy sofa that has seen better days. What you will find is free wireless broadband access, digital TV and a DVD library, as well as fresh contemporary design.

The City Bothy has been fully redecorated and refurbished in 2015.



* “Bothy” in Scots means a small mountain refuge. But don’t worry – you won’t have to rough it
