This achingly hip new Design Hotels property opened last month in the very heart of Edinburgh, where the Old Town meets the New Town.
Located behind an alluring façade of Scottish stone, Market Street Hotel effortlessly balances the architectural history of the city with innovative design touches and urban chic. Inside the 98-room property, cracked, earthen walls are set against the minimalist lines of contemporary fabrics and furnishings.
Modern design classics by Fritz Hansen and Saint Luc are juxtaposed with fabric wallpapers, handcrafted local pieces and wooden shutters inspired by the traditional window fixtures of the Old Town. Meanwhile the bathrooms are the epitome of luxury – think solid stone basins, rainfall showers and covetable amenities by vegan brand Votary.
In the evening, head up to the property’s rooftop Champagne lounge, Nor’ Loft, which looks out across the city’s spires and historic attractions.
This addition to the city’s UNESCO World Heritage skyline, features an elegant Champagne table with a choice of more than 20 prestige labels and a curated spirits list. Take your pick and recline by the fireplace for optimum people watching. The next day, head back up for a comforting breakfast.
