Waldorf Astoria

Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

Enjoying a superb location in the heart of Edinburgh, The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh is situated at the west end of Princes Street with stunning views up to the imposing castle that dominates the city. Following a £24 million restoration, The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh is once again set to secure its reputation as the finest hotel in Scotland.


With its origins as a railway hotel, The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh first began its reputation as avenue for the rich and famous and locals alike in 1903. With a guest list reading like a who’s who of the silver screen, the original hotel played host to Hollywood stars from Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and Elizabeth Taylor, to Bing Crosby and Sir Sean Connery.
