Caledonian Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland

The Caledonian is one of those hotels that takes you back to the golden age of travel. It stands on a corner in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland, with a view to the castle from many of it’s rooms and the Pompadour Restaurant. It’s recently been refurbished, and currently operates as a Waldorf-Astoria property. I reserved a standard room and was pleased to find myself on the top floor.

The hallway was a bit narrow, but the room was well-appointed and with a view to the castle. Of course the bathroom featured all the comforts you’d expect as you see in the next photo:

The rainfall shower certainly made for a wonderful experience. At the sink, there’s plenty of room for personal grooming as well:

Don’t miss the pair of fluffy robes hanging on the door. There’s also slippers tucked into the pocket, more comforts than home! Of course, there’s a selection of products for your use and here’s a detailed look:

There’s also a generously sized closet where you’ll find more conveniences, including an ironing board and more:

All this and more makes for a comfortable stay at The Caledonian, where staff are truly professional and do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. The location is very convenient to many attractions and activities in Edinburgh, including business. I enjoyed my stay here 20 years ago, and this time it was just as good if not better. Oh, and here’s the view from that room:
