The Balmoral in Edinburgh, Scotland
Located at the most prestigious address in Edinburgh, the five-star Balmoral Hotel combines the noble character of a Scottish baronial home with the classic sophistication of an international hotel.
This is a wonderful, high touch property, offering a GREAT location in Edinburgh very close to the train station and just a short ride from the airport. Located at Number One Princes Street, on the city’s main shopping thoroughfare, the five-star Balmoral is only a short walk from Edinburgh Castle, nation’s monuments, museums and galleries and the new Scottish Parliament.
