Malmaison Edinburgh

Leith, Edinburgh







Choice of rooms at the stylish Edinburgh Mal, with breakfast and a two-course dinner included

As the very first Malmaison Hotel, Malmaison Edinburgh is fondly referred to as the ‘mother’. With 100 rooms, the Malmaison offers superb views that pore over the Union Canal in the heart of Leith - a quaint district in the north of Edinburgh.

Only a short ride from Waverley station, the hotel is in a perfect location, close to the 14th century port that once bore witness to the arrival of many Kings and Queens and exhibits a picturesque charm combined with bustling busy joints such as delicious delicatessens, top restaurants and swanky bars.

The hotel itself is classically Scottish. From the tartan roll-top baths to the traditional fare offered on the restaurant menu, you will feel instantly immersed in the rich culture and history of the area, especially as you watch the sunrise over the waters of Leith from the Port suite.

Super slinky (as they like to refer to themselves), the hotel offers rooms of all shapes and sizes. Arthur’s Attic Suite, an open plan room, offers incredible views of the Edinburgh skyline and Arthur’s Seat itself. With oversized takeaway toiletries, a large cocktail bar, a brasserie set next to the sea and the wine-tasting room, you will find yourself pampered and deliriously happy in Scotland’s finest city.

Our offers include a choice between the Standard or Superior rooms, with breakfast and a two-course dinner included.
