We stayed at the Parliament House Hotel twice during our time in Scotland. We started our Scottish journey in Edinburgh and ended it there as well. Both visits were amazing! First off we LOVED Edinburgh. Beautiful, historic and safe city. The Parliament House Hotel was a 10 minute walk to the Royal Mile and a 5 minute walk to Waverley train station and and it was an affordable hotel as well. The staff was very helpful, they helped us find restaurants, get our rental car returned and just overall very friendly and accommodating! The hotel amenities were modern but set in a historic building…perfect!!

‘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. Some of the more historic parts of the building are not accessible by lift. 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.
