The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square

The £25m, top-to-toe transformation of The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square, including a complete revamp of all the Grade II*-listed hotel’s public spaces, from the reception, lounges, ballroom and meeting rooms to the stunning new central ‘Garden’ all-day dining area, plus new bar and restaurant offer – BABA – along with the redesign of all 199 rooms and suites.

Like a cosmopolitan clubhouse, the scheme is eclectic and intriguing and full of references to travel. The interior feel is plush and elegant, with interesting and varied furniture and tactile, high-quality fabrics, including richly-coloured velvets and leathers, all set within a series of stand-out individual spaces.
