Adagio Aparthotel, Edinburgh

Cannongate - Edinburgh


The Adagio Aparthotel, which is only the 3rd of the brand in the UK, formed the last part of phase 1 of the New Waverley development. The Royal Mile on which it is situated is the Traditional route by which the Royal family travel from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace and is in the centre of a World Heritage Zone. Sitting at the far south of the site and elevated some 12-14m above Calton Road to the North, the site enjoys spectacular views over Calton hill to the South, Leith and docks to the east and Arthur’s Seat to the North. The 6-storey building comprises 146, apart-hotel rooms with separate kitchen facilities as well as 5 commercial units that line the New lane, now known as SIbbald Walk, which leads into the new public plaza.
