Parliament House Hotel

Situated 5 minutes from Edinburgh’s main train station, Waverley, and at the foot of the iconic tourist attraction of Calton Hill, sits Parliament House Hotel. Enjoy luxurious yet affordable adult-only accommodation in Edinburgh. Here we offer homely Scottish hotel breaks in the heart of the city. Just a short walk from the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle, our popular Edinburgh hotel enjoys the perfect city location. Whilst we don’t have a restaurant, we do serve delicious Scottish and continental breakfasts in our breakfast room.

In the Heart of Edinburgh

Furthermore, there’s a drinks cabinet by the snug in the main lounge. So snuggle up and enjoy an evening tipple served by the open fire. Comprised of three historic townhouses you can experience both Old and New Town Edinburgh. Here our hotel is split over multiple levels. All rooms enjoy en suite facilities and quirky features such as our Victorian elevator making for a unique hotel stay, full of charm. We offer double or twin rooms, plus we have a rather large hotel suite with large windows on three sides of the room. Want to explore Edinburgh with us? See our City Guides

We stayed here on two separate occasions during our hiking holiday in Scotland and both times we had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were a good size (we had a very large room on the first stay and a slightly smaller one on the next) and the showers were excellent. We never did eat here so I cannot vouch for the food. The proximity to Waverly Station was one of the main reasons we decided to stay here and we were very pleased to not have far to lug our baggage when we left. Hotel staff was very friendly and the layout of the hotel itself is very interesting.

Parliament House Hotel Tripadvisor Review

‘Beautiful hotel and nice staff.  The location is great because it’s close to Calton Hill and also close to the Old Town. The staff in the hotel are very nice and helpful. The breakfast is also great and the room was cute, big enough and comfortable. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I really recommend it!’

Booking and Finding Us at Parliament House Hotel

Please note on your booking if you need an elevator. Unfortunately, this excludes you from our most quirky rooms. Be sure to approach the hotel from Waterloo Place. When exiting the train station exit on the Princes Street exit and walk up Waterloo Place. The Calton Road exit presents an unnecessary and rather steep climb up Calton Hill! When you arrive, we will welcome you to a home away from home. One where we have been welcoming Edinburgh-bound travellers through our doors time and time again.
